For 2011, the mid-size Murano crossover vehicle gets a new look in front, including a different grille design, new LED taillights, and refreshed bumper and fascia designs. Graphite Blue is a new addition to the exterior palette. Inside, the hue of the instrument-panel lighting has been changed from orange to white. Nissan has added a new SV trim to the Murano lineup this year, slotting between the base S and popular SL models but below the most luxurious LE trim. The SV adds Bluetooth, USB and iPod connectivity, satellite radio, a dual-panel moonroof, a color monitor screen with backup camera and a power driver seat. The SL and LE trims get other additional standard equipment this year, with new woodgrain trim and fresh center-stack colors making the LE cabin more of a standout. Late in the model year, there will be an addition to the Murano lineup: the new Murano CrossCabriolet, a 2-door 4-seat soft-top version of the Murano that has a higher ride height than other convertibles while offering some of the same interior plush interior comforts and details as the rest of the Murano models.

Nissan's Murano stands out as offering one of the most stylish, best-trimmed, and best-appointed interiors from a non-luxury brand, with warm, soft-touch materials and color choices than make some other mainstream-brand crossover models seem drab. The Murano's powertrain, while not overtly sporty, is also one of the smoothest and strongest in the business for typical suburban use--getting ahead at stoplights and making safe, quick passes on the highway, for example. Ride quality is also worth singling out; the Murano has a pretty impressive ride, especially with the standard 18-inch wheels, without feeling too floaty for a curvy road.
