The Murano performs with splendid passion. Acceleration is vigorous, and passing at highway speeds produces no unusual sensations. The gearless CVT operates seamlessly and delivers plenty of immediate energy with no fuss; it ranks among the best. Engine noise is minimal, but a high whine emerges if you keep your foot to the floor. A 3.5-liter V-6 sends 240 horsepower and 244 pounds-feet of torque to Nissan's CVT, which has no gears but works with a steel belt and twin pulleys. When properly equipped, the Murano can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
Nissan says the Murano's wraparound surface construction features a sloping hood line and a steeply raked windshield. Each wheel is pushed out toward the corners for a wide stance. Chrome accents for the fog lamp rings and side sills are installed on SL and SE models. Aerodynamic features include an under-engine cover, a chin spoiler and a rear spoiler. Built on a 111.2-inch wheelbase, the Murano measures 187.6 inches long overall and stands 66.5 inches tall; it rides on 18-inch tires. High-intensity-discharge headlights and a sport-tuned suspension are included on SE models. Equipped with either cloth or optional leather upholstery, the Murano has flip-out door pockets and removable cupholders. Adjustable pedals are optional. The split, folding rear seat reclines. SL and SE models have a 10-way power driver's seat with power lumbar support. The instrument panel is trimmed in aluminum. A Bose audio system and a navigation system are optional.
Dual-stage front airbags, front-seat side-impact and side curtain airbags are standard. Active head restraints for the front seats are also standard. All-disc antilock brakes have brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution. An optional electronic stability system can improve stability by controlling brake pressure and engine torque.
