Quiet and composed the 2016 Nissan Murano is a superb ride. It drives as smart as it looks and its CVT has gone through some great improvements compared to previous models. It’s powerful yet decent on fuel consumption and is a great choice as a family car. It’s a midsize, 2 row crossover but there is more than enough space for the whole family.
All season tires, on 18″ 5-spoke aluminium-alloy wheels are standard on the 2016 Murano. Nissan has included exterior features such as LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, chrome door handles, and UV-reducing solar glass as standard for the 2016 model. There are 8 different color finishes available from ‘pacific sunset’ (orange) to pearl white. The design is sleek and modern with Nissan’s V-motion grille flaring outwards.
This crossover adapts to even the shorter drivers with a low-set dashboard. There is plenty of space for passengers and a very respectable cargo space. The quietness of the cabin is unrivaled with serious smoothness on the road. The seats are ‘zero gravity’ and contoured to fit an adult’s back comfortably so even for long range drives this is a great pick. If you opt for the Platinum model (starts at $39,100), you have the option of heated and cooled front seats, and heated rear seats.
The basic model comes equipped with 6 speakers, Bluetooth audio streaming wireless technology, and steering wheel mounted audio controls. There is the option to add rear USB ports for portable devices.
If you opt for the premium model, the steering wheel comes heated and power tilted. There is also climate control included in the upgraded model.
