The 5-passenger Murano CrossCabriolet is Nissan's mid-size convertible SUV. This makes it virtually unique in its category. The CrossCabriolet provides all the cargo -carrying flexibility of a crossover/SUV bodystyle with the top-down driving.
The 2014 Murano is offered in a single trim. It comes with the same 3.5L V6 and continuously variable transmission as the standard Murano. It comes with the same 4-wheel independent transmission and all-wheel drive as well.
The smooth V6 really fits the Murano's mission in feeling responsive yet relaxed and upscale, and the Xtronic continuously variable ratio transmission works better here than it does in many other CVT vehicles, keeping engine revs low during cruising yet raising them quickly for passing. A speed-sensitive power-steering system provides a confident feel, while the Murano's independent coil-spring front suspension (with a front subframe) and multi-link rear arrangement allow a nicely isolated ride yet reasonably crisp handling. Strong braking is handled by 4-wheel discs and a 4-channel anti-lock system with brake assist, to help apply maximum force in panic braking. The only wheels available are the standard 20" split-spoke alloy ones.
The Murano's tall stance affords a high-set seating position that's just right for adults, making getting in and out easy and affording good visibility, especially in front. With a wide center console and ambient lighting, as well as rather wide, supportive front seats--along with smooth ride--the Murano is a good highway vehicle. Back-seat space is plenty spacious for two adults, although three can fit when needed; fold the 60/40-split rear seatbacks forward and you get an expansive, nearly flat cargo space for weekend errands.
Other standard equipment includes LED tail lamps, remote keyless entry, an Intelligent Key system with push-button start, 6-speaker audio and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat.
Navigation is optional and comes with a 7-inch touch-screen, Bluetooth streaming audio and XM NavTraffic.
The CrossCabriolet continues on unchanged from 2013.
