Special features for 2012

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 one of the smoothest and strongest in the segment--great for getting ahead at stoplights and making safe, quick passes on the highway. Ride quality is pretty impressive, especially with the standard 18-inch wheels-- it feels comfortable without being too floaty. This equates to confident handling without fatigue on longer drives.
The 2012 Nissan Murano is a mid-size crossover with seating. The standard FWD Murano comes with a Xtronic CVT® automatic transmission (an AWD upgrade is also available). All Murano trim levels are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. Fuel mileage is an EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. Features include heated seats, heated mirrors, navigation, push button ignition, 20-inch wheels, and a 9-speaker audio system with dual subwoofers. Safety is comprised of vehicle dynamic control, traction control, Nissan advanced airbag system, and roof-mounted supplemental curtain airbags. The Murano is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
