Open wide the door of the brand new, hot-looking Nissan Murano TI, and you are smacked between the eyes with a sumptuous interior lavished in double stitched premium leather. Tinted windows, keyless entry and electronic multi function seats give the big all-terrain vehicle an air of sophistication that was once only found in a Range Rover.
A true high-class unit, the Nissan Murano TI has the goods to seat it at the forefront of the crossover segment of the vehicle market. Take the Nissan Murano off-road, and you’ll happily find out that this is no belly flopping whale splashing through mud puddles. More like a war horse powering through rugged terrain, the Nissan Murano makes short work of any harsh situations off-road. Equipped with the very smooth Xtronic CVT transmission and an Intelligent All-Mode 4×4 system with electronic 4WD selection and a Lock Mode you are sure to make quick progress going forward.
Leap onto the tarmac again and you are in for a treat. The vehicle’s relatively low centre of gravity means that the Nissan Murano TI handles more like a tautly balanced sedan than a rolly-polly 4×4. Huge grip, nimble steering and loads of power can allow for very spirited driving excursions if you so desire. Otherwise, the well mannered, secure Murano Ti is exceptionally easy to live with on a day to day basis. It’s perfect for collecting the kids from school!
Equipped with the very best in safety features, you won’t be heading out to the wicket like a batsman without a box inside the Nissan Murano TI. You find premium features that envelope the Murano’s occupants and protect them from harm. Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control, ABS with Active Brake Limited Slip, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Brake Assist, driver and front passenger front-impact SRS airbags, driver and front passenger side-impact SRS airbags, front to rear SRS curtain airbags, active headrests in the front, side intrusion bars, an energy-absorbing steering column, front and rear crumple zones, a highly rigid monocoque body, and front and rear (left and right) seatbelt height adjustment mechanisms to name but a few.
Plenty of power means plenty of power to burn, and so the Nissan Murano TI has a very capable towing capacity. With 191 kW kicking in at 6000 rpm and 336 Nm at 4600 rpm the 2009 Murano can pull the boat while loaded up with all the kids and luggage. The very strong independent suspension, boasting stabiliser bars front and rear, copes with heavy loads with no hassle whatsoever. Just be careful the combination of a smooth quiet engine and a refined interior doesn’t let you creep well above the towing speed limit – so easy to do in this beast. I guess the cruise control is there to help.
