Of the many great crossovers available at the Nissan dealership, the 2012 Murano satisfies the needs and desires of nearly any driver. Available in four trims from S to LE, there is also a unique fifth option—the CrossCabriolet. This all-wheel drive, convertible crossover is the first of its kind, and it offers a unique and freeing experience. Take a look at all the ways the new Nissan Murano steps up in the crossover market.
When viewing the 2012 Murano from the outside, you can see that it has the appearance of a luxury vehicle. Upon stepping into the crossover, it shouldn’t be surprising to find a luxurious interior to match the body. The seating and steering wheel are covered in fine, double-stitched leather. The surfaces inside the Murano are mostly made from soft-touch materials. Ambient lighting is available at night, while the dual-panel moonroof can be opened at any time, so both front and rear passengers can enjoy fresh air. Despite the weather outside, dual-zone automatic climate controls, and an advanced ventilation system keep the entire cabin at your desired temperature. The front seats, rear seats, and steering wheel all have available heating as well.
Moving into the technological side of comfort, the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and outside mirrors can all be adjusted to desired settings, and then save those settings. Technologies such as Nissan’s refined push-to-start technology and Intelligent Key are more than convenient. With Nissan Intelligent Key and the Murano’s power tailgate, loading and unloading is as easy as the push of a button.
The 2012 Murano is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The 260-horsepower motor provides strong power while delivering 24 mpg on the highway. The standard continuously-variable transmission ensures this power is smooth, and greatly increases efficiency. The perfect ride is achieved with Nissan’s advanced all-wheel drive technologies. Hill-start assist, stability control, and most importantly, torque vectoring technology allow perfect traction in every condition. All these performance features come together providing a comfortable ride, while giving the right amount of power when needed.
