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, fuel 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.
Power in the palm of your hand.
Murano's 3.5-liter V6 pumps out 260 horsepower to keep you ahead of the pack when you need to be. Efficient fuel economy, up to 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.
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, 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.
With NissanConnect®, your Murano becomes your compatible smartphone's best friend. Your own hand-picked music and podcasts are all just a swipe or tap away, working seamlessly together through your smartphone and Murano's 8" color touch-screen. While SiriusXM® Travel Link brings sport scores, movie listings, traffic updates and more.

Rear passengers enjoy available outboard heated seats, plus a USB Connection Port with smartphone interface. Above you, the available expanded panoramic moonroof stretches from front to back and seems to breathe in light. An atmosphere this premium makes it easy to enjoy the journey – and might make your destination seem beside the point.
A wider center console opens the way for all passengers to feel engaged when on those long road trips.
From the daily commute to long road trips, get a more comfortable experience from the astronaut-inspired Zero Gravity seats. With Quick Comfort® heating in both rows, everyone stays nice and toasty. Up front, you can cool your seats as well, helping to keep you comfy behind the wheel.
