Nissan Resonance Concept Previews Next-Gen Murano CUV

by on Jan.15, 2013

Expect many of the Nissan Resonance design cues to return with the next-gen Murano.

At a time when most manufacturers tried to disguise their early crossovers to look like conventional sport-utility vehicles, Nissan took a decidedly different direction, creating the expressively styled Murano.

So, with more and more makers moving in that direction as the classic SUV fades from the market, how does Nissan stay ahead of the crowd? What it describes as the “envelope-pushing” Resonance Concept gives us a good idea.  The show car’s “boldly futuristic styling” is a tease of what will become the next-generation Nissan Murano which was last restyled in 2009.

As with the original crossover, the Japanese maker is putting a premium on design, though the Nissan Resonance Concept also features a hybrid powertrain that will be offered as an option on the upcoming Murano replacement. As is often the case with concepts, the Resonance features a number of other innovative technologies, as well.

The Nissan Resonance concept is powered by the maker's latest hybrid drivetrain system.

The parade of previews and teases continues as manufacturers prepare for one of the busiest Detroit Auto Shows in years.  With nearly 60 new models set to debut at Motown’s Cobo Center it’s no wonder manufacturers are vying for attention ahead of time with images like this one previewing the Nissan Resonance Concept.

If the basic shape seems somewhat familiar, well, no surprise.  Expect to see the Resonance return in the very near future in production form as the next-generation Nissan Murano.

In concept form, Nissan says the “envelope-pushing crossover” is powered by a hybrid-electric powertrain.  That’s also likely to reappear as one of the options the Japanese maker will offer on the production Murano.
