Redesigned for 2009, the Nissan Murano midsize crossover SUV matches its elegantly sculpted exterior with a highly refined interior. Stylish cues like stacked LED taillamps and optional 20-inch wheels are designed to turn heads while inside, Murano's five-passenger interior beckons with a long list of comfort and convenience features ranging from push-button ignition to dual-zone climate control. Powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that unleashes 265 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque, the Nissan Murano is equipped with a continuously variable transmission sending power to either the front or all four wheels. Fuel economy estimates are EPA-rated at 18 mpg city and 23 mpg hwy. Nissan Murano safety features include antilock disc brakes with brake assist, traction control, dynamic control, active front head restraints, dual-stage front air bags with seat belt sensors and occupant-classification sensor, driver- and front-passenger seat-mounted side-impact air bags and roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags for side-impact and rollover head protection for front- and rear-seat outboard occupants.
