When driving, forward visibility needs to be good enough to allow drivers to see and avoid hazards. There is no doubt the awesome Murano styling will be seen by other motorists. But also, inside the fabulous new Nissan Murano ST, the driver can enjoy the exceptional visibility they will have all around the vehicle from the driver’s seat.
Nissan’s design team have worked another miracle in that they have designed a big cross-over vehicle that not only looks large but has a very sporty flavour blended into the Murano’s sweet looking lines. Big wheels, large wheel arches, a powerful midriff and a sleek low-profile roofline give the unyielding Nissan Murano ST a gallant on-road presence. You’ve got to love the sleek headlights which wrap around the Murano’s nose, giving the vehicle a very ‘on-to-it’ expression. The Nissan Murano ST styling is very confident and almost futuristic. Definitely the large chrome grille is aggressively angled and becomes undoubtedly the centre of attention.
The kids will love the attention that they will get pulling up to school in the new Murano ST. Inside the roomy interior there is plenty of comfort and space for a friend or two. And let’s not forget the ability with which the Nissan Murano ST can carry the sports gear. Impressive luggage capacity can swallow two are three gear bags with ease. Like the kids, you’ll enjoy the funky push button engine start function. Double stitched leather seat trim comes as standard along with the leather bound steering wheel and leather shift lever. Electronic memory function seats are standard, and so too is the dual-zone automatic climate control air-conditioning with rear vents. As the driver you will enjoy one of the most comfortable driving positions, and with cruise control and steering wheel mounted controls a relaxed journey is on the cards every time. The front seats are heated, and the exceptional sound quality from the BOSE eleven-speaker system can be cranked up to announce to your neighbours that you have well and truly arrived – in true boys-and-their-toys fashion. Two subwoofers wound right up have the potential to make your gates quake on their hinges. This is a well equipped vehicle with a DVD Satellite Navigation system and a 7-inch integrated colour display. A much safer option of communication has to be the Handsfree Bluetooth phone system with steering wheel controls – no more need for blind texting at the wheel! A cargo blind and cargo net are two other excellent practical features.
Riding in a new Murano is exceptionally good. A taut suspension soaks up the road undulations with ease. The balanced handling package is entertaining. And, the Murano grasp upon the road is unyielding. Flatten the accelerator, and performance comes very briskly. The Nissan Murano ST has one of the sweetest V6 petrol engines available, and the smooth progression of power is seamless. A bullet proof engine design means that the 191 kW power plant has a long life ahead. With 336 Nm of torque, the capability of the new Nissan Murano is broadened. You might like to tow the caravan or boat to your favourite holiday destination. And how about when you get there you test out the AWD traction off-road. Nissan have equipped the Murano ST with an Intelligent All-Mode 4×4 with electronic 4WD selection and a Lock Mode. Boasting Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) and Traction Control (TCS) as standard, the potential off-roading ability is impressive. You are well equipped to tackle any outback road to find yourself an adventure along the way.
As safe as they come, and with a 3 year/100 000 kilometre warranty, you have a vehicle ready for any task. The Nissan Murano ST is a cut above the rest, and a totally complete package.
