Nissan Murano

Smooth lines and a freshened up face make the 2011 Nissan Murano a nice, well-priced SUV contender.

Model Update

New standard features for the freshly updated Nissan Murano range are features like blue-tooth communications and keyless entry.

Large SUV vehicles don’t come much more complete than the Nissan Murano. It’s a hatch, it’s a wagon, it’s an SUV, it’s a luxury machine, it’s powerful and it’s practical. If you are on the lookout for what has proven over time to be a reliable and comfortable SUV, then the massively competent Nissan Murano will fit the bill perfectly.

Creamy smooth, V6 petrol power has the goods to embarrass the odd sports cars. Effortless power for passing slower vehicles starts from within the responsive 191 kW, 336 Nm power-plant. And this sort of torque is ideal for hauling the boat and the family away for an adventure. An AWD transmission enables the Murano to venture off-road, and the lockable 4WD function means that it will go where most driver’s won’t dare.

Stacked with features, the Ti is luxury to the max. If you want to save 10k then the ST is surely sufficient. Tweaks to the new Murano’s exterior make it unique and stylish. This is a nice quiet drive offering space, comfort and safety.

If you are looking for a great crossover/SUV type vehicle at a lesser price than a BMW, Lexus or Volvo, then you may want to take a look at a classy new Nissan Murano.

This vehicle is a very capable four-wheel-drive vehicle and it comes with a great set of features that you would expect from a top of the line luxury motorcar. Boasting a lockable AWD feature, the Nissan Murano can tackle the toughest terrain with ease. A high-quality Bose surround sound system, leather seats that come heated, beautiful leather trim in black or ivory, a push-button engine start, cruise control with steering wheel controls, electrically adjustable front seats with a memory function, DVD satellite navigation (Ti model only), map lights, a rear tailgate spoiler, LED taillights, dual chrome exhaust pipes, Xenon headlights with auto levelling and even a sunroof are some of the items that set the latest Nissan Murano apart.

Slip inside the Nissan Murano on a stinking hot summers day, and the Nissan Murano provides a welcome sanctuary from the dusty hot conditions that can be so prominent in Australian weather patterns. Dual zone automatic climate control provides the cooling and warming depending on what’s needed. Exceptionally spacious seating for up to five adults in exemplary leather contoured seats provides both support and relaxation to all occupants. Rear seating also features a reclining feature for total comfort. With all this luxury you’ll be amazed at the great price for this vehicle. A new ST Murano can be driven away for under $50,000.

Not only does the Nissan Murano come with excellent luxury features, but it also offers you great performance as well. This vehicle comes with a superbly robust V6 engine offering plenty of power for both on-road and off-road driving. The 191 kW, V6 petrol-engine is a variant of the same engine that powers the Nissan 350Z, and the engine is cleverly linked to one of the smoothest transmissions around: the Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). This perfect marriage equips the new Murano with silky acceleration and refined performance. A 0-100 km/h sprint can be completed in around the mid–eight second mark.

The taut, athletic suspension setup provides the car with very stable handling and the ability to complete turns with ease. The impressive All-Wheel Drive system is simple and makes the Murano a sure-footed all-weather performer. While being seated inside the spacious, well-appointed Murano cabin, even on rough roads the ride is very comfortable.

Nissan’s design team has made sure to include all the safety features that you want in your vehicle, so it comes loaded with air bags, pre-tensioning seat belts, active front head rests, three-point seatbelts all-round, EBD and ABS braking systems, VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) and even parking sensors.

The head-turning design is very modern, pleasing on the eye and certainly shines over the competition. Choose a late model Nissan Murano, and it will prove to be a stylish and very comfortable long-term proposition.

The current model series includes the:

  • Nissan Murano ST
  • Nissan Murano Ti
