2015 Nissan Murano: Up Close


Nissan's Murano has always been a bit weird. While most SUVs have morphed into a common look across manufacturers, the Murano always did its own thing. Now Nissan has updated the Murano, giving it its first true complete redesign, and the look is just as wild as ever.

At first glance, one might think that the 2015 Murano is almost overstyled, with lines, creases, folds, streaks, fins and slats from bumper to rump. The resemblance to Nissan's Resonance concept car is strong, but it works.

2015 Nissan Murano Photo Gallery (40 Photos)


More often than not, when a concept car moves to production, little of the flashiness and daring design that made it an eye-catcher in the first place actually make it to the dealer showroom. That's not the case with the 2015 Nissan Murano, now making a spectacle of itself at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The new Murano's prototype, the Resonance concept, introduced the crossover's bold exterior styling back in January at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Surprisingly, much of that design translates to the production version, notably the "floating" roof element, boomerang-style headlights, kooky LED taillights and overall aerodynamic shape. Meanwhile, the forward-looking interior adopts an "upscale social lounge" design, says Nissan.

Nissan has two SUV flavors in its showrooms. If you need family-hauler, there's the seven-passenger Pathfinder. If you just want style, all-weather functionality and really only need room for five passengers, there's the Pathfinder's quirky younger sibling, the Murano.

Nissan has redone the Murano for 2015 and will introduce it at this week's 2014 New York International Auto Show, showing off a new version that takes its styling cues from the Nissan Resonance concept car unveiled at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Nissan to Debut 2015 Murano at 2014 New York Auto Show


With more than three weeks to go until the media days of the 2014 New York Auto Show, Nissan just announced that it plans to unveil the next generation of its two-row SUV. The Murano was last updated for model-year 2011, and Nissan calls the 2015 model "all-new" with a "spacious, premium interior and advanced, purposeful safety and connective technology," the automaker said in a statement.

Nissan Resonance Concept: Photo Gallery


Nissan says designers of the Resonance were inspired by the "future allure of hypersonic travel," and though the hybrid crossover concept won't break the sound barrier, its influence likely will resonate in models to come. Showing off its sci-fi-friendly features along with fuel-economy-boosting airflow management, the Resonance — a possible precursor to the next-generation Murano — bows this week at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Everything about the Resonance looks ahead to the world of tomorrow. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mates with a hybrid electric drive system and Nissan's next-gen Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission. Although a 3-D holographic center console screen is unlikely to find its way to production, it sure is cool to see in the here-and-now.

Check out the gallery below for a further glimpse into the future.

2013 Nissan Murano: What's Changed


  • Most significant changes: Newly available safety systems
  • Price change: None on base models, but small increases on other trims
  • On sale: Now
  • Which should you buy, 2012 or 2013? If Nissan's new safety features appeal, the 2013.

Just like the redesigned-for-2013 Altima sedan, the Murano gets a host of newly available safety features for 2013. Aside from the new optional equipment, Nissan's midsize crossover and its base price carry over unchanged; higher trim versions jump slightly in price. 

The Murano is again available in S, SV, SL and LE trims in two- and all-wheel drive. Newly optional on SL and LE versions is Nissan's Safety Shield technology. It includes several camera-based safety systems like Moving Object Detection, blind spot warning and lane departure warning systems. The Safety Shield features are part of the Navigation Package for SL models ($2,100) and Platinum Edition package for LE models ($2,350).

2009 Nissan Murano: She Said, She Said


Nissan may have found two new advocates for its recently redesigned Murano. Beth and Amanda discuss living with it daily in the city and on a weekend road trip, along with their surprising love — or lack thereof — of the SUV/crossover segment as a whole. Yes, you read that right.

Beth: The Nissan Murano is great at what it does. It’s a midsize crossover with five seats and a generous cargo area, just the right amount of power, a comfortable ride and enough amenities to be practical without crossing the line into indulgent. If I had a couple of small children, an interest in antiques or the need to make frequent home-improvement-store runs, I’m fairly sure I’d be head-over-heels in love with it. For a single girl who lives in the city, though, it just strikes me as too much car.

Amanda: I can always count on the two of us having opposing views on the SUVs we drive. I didn’t think the Murano was too big at all. If anything, I was surprised by how much more compact it was from what I pictured. We often get cars I fall in love with (like the adorable Volvo C30), but that I can’t ever see myself buying because they don’t ultimately suit my needs or budget. The Murano, however, is a car I could actually picture myself buying whenever my ’99 Ford Explorer calls it quits. I really don’t have much to complain about with this car. And don’t underestimate the fun that can be had at Home Depot on a Saturday morning!

Nissan Offering Zero Percent Financing on Five Models


Nissan has been offering cash back on its models sporadically for a while now, but the company has yet to really ramp up its financing offers the way some other companies have. That will change in November. Starting Nov. 4, Nissan will offer customers 0% financing for 36 months on its most popular models: the Rogue, Murano, Altima, Sentra and Versa hatchback. The offer ends Nov. 30.

What does that mean for buyers? Let’s take a Versa hatchback with a price of $16,210. Using our financing calculator, the difference in monthly payments between the current average financing rate for new cars, 6.6%, and a 0.0% one is about $40 a month – from $436.16 to $394.72 on a 36-month deal with $2,000 down for a total savings of $1,492. Obviously, the more expensive the car, the more 0% adds to the bottom line.

Nissan is also offering $199 per month lease deals on Rogue and Altima.

Video: 2009 Nissan Murano


Senior editor Joe Wiesenfelder reviewed the new Nissan Murano a few weeks ago, but now he gets the new crossover in front of the camera for this video. The rundown shows off the Murano’s features, including a slightly odd cover for the rear cargo area and power-raising rear seats. Very nifty.
