The 2015 Nissan Murano was designed from the ground up to stand out amidst a crowded mid-size Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) marketplace. Much improved over the last generation, the newest Murano features edgy styling, loads of technology and safety features, and enhanced fuel economy.
To see how all of these attributes have birthed a new star in the mid-size CUV segment, watch Nathan’s full video review of the 2015 Nissan Murano below:
Taking one look at the 2015 Nissan Murano from the outside suggests a modern, edgy design theme, replete with up-swept headlamps and taillamps and a “floating roof” design, a’la 2015 Range Rover Evoque. The overall design language lends a feeling of uniqueness and exclusivity amidst a crowded mid-size CUV segment.
We found the Murano’s all-wheel-drive, anti-lock brake, and stability-control systems to work flawlessly on snow-packed and icy Colorado roads, lending a feeling of stability and confidence, even when riding on the Murano’s standard all-season tires. Additionally, Nissan’s optional “around-view” monitor system makes both parallel and perpendicular parking a breeze.
The 2015 Nissan Murano’s powertrain, a 260-HP 3.5-L V-6 engine mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) carries over, but fuel economy numbers are much improved. The new Murano is EPA rated to 21/28 city/highway MPG; in our mixed driving, we averaged a very respectable 25 MPG.
