Unlike conventional automatic transmissions, the virtually gearless Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) makes gear hunting a thing of the past. Fully variable gear ratios mean the CVT can hold the engine at the ideal rpm, giving you a wave of power when you need it, and achieving quiet, efficient cruising when you don't.
Terrain varies, but the evenness of your ride doesn't have to. The second you pull away, the AWD turns on, delivering power to both front and rear wheels for improved grip. Once you're up to speed, there's no sense powering all four wheels, so the system efficiently sends all the power to the front. Then, for enhanced cornering control and traction, AWD sends some of that power from the front wheels to the rear.
To keep you ahead of the pack when you need to be. An efficient 28 MPG on the highway keeps it practical, and it doesn't hurt to have aerodynamics that achieve a drag coefficient comparable to some sports cars.
Inspired by the future of aerospace, Murano's striking aerodynamic body looks as though it was shaped by the wind. The fluid profile begins with the V-Motion Grille and sweeps into a signature floating roofline that appears to hover above the cabin, and ends at rear side pillars that resemble a jet's tail.
Style meets the street as Murano glides over the road on available luminous 20” machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels.
The boomerang-shaped headlights integrate with the aerodynamic profile to become a vital part of the dramatic overall design. Available high-efficiency LED headlamps create a light pattern that replicates natural daylight. The signature LED Daytime Running Lights dramatically arch around the headlights and provide a low-intensity, but highly visible light.
An available feature, the 2016 Murano's sweeping, uninterrupted moonroof reaches over both rows of seats, so even passengers in the back get a clear view of the sky and experience an open, natural atmosphere rarely found in the back seat of a crossover.
Access music and more with a tap or a swipe on the available 8” color touch-screen. Pinch and zoom navigation lets you zero in on your destination.
Approximately the size of a mini-tablet, the programmable high-res 7-inch screen puts info like turn-by-turn navigation, individual tire pressure readings, fuel stats, and safety system alerts right up front in the gauge cluster so the driver’s eyes can stay where they need to be – on the road.
With NissanConnectSM, your Murano becomes your compatible smartphone's best friend, so no more separation anxiety for you. Your own hand-picked music and podcasts, SiriusXM® Sports, movie listings, traffic updates and more are all just a swipe or tap away, working seamlessly together through your smartphone and Murano®'s available 8.0" color touch-screen.
Murano offers you and your passengers a chance to travel in superior comfort and style. There's pleasure in the small things, like softer headrests with just the right amount of give, and in the big things, like front and rear outboard Zero Gravity Seats. These seats were inspired by space-age technology and help take pressure off the lower back and reduce fatigue, leading the way for longer outings and spontaneous road trips.
TPMS lets you know individually when a tire is low, and Easy-Fill Tire Alert takes the guesswork out of filling your tires, with a beep of the horn when you've reached the correct pressure.
If another vehicle is detected in your blind spot area, an indicator appears in the driver's or front passenger's doors and on the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. Put your turn signal on, and the indicator flashes with a warning chime to alert you.
A rearview monitor is great when backing up, but when it comes to parking, it's nice to see more than just what's directly behind you. Murano's available Around View® Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual 360° bird's-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views. And since all obstacles aren't stationary, the available Moving Object Detection system can warn you about moving objects detected in your vicinity.
Predictive Forward Collision Warning can alert you to potential risks up ahead by not only monitoring the speed and distance of the vehicle in front of you, but the vehicle in front of that one as well. Although obscured from your view, sensors can detect if that vehicle suddenly and unexpectedly slows, giving you time to react to the situation.
