Black Murano 2017 SL
Nissan’s Murano crossover SUV for 2017 may initially stun with its exotic exterior styling, but it’s the way this midsize SUV rides and handles that sealed the deal with our editors. From its precise steering to its assured brakes to the ease in which it would get up and go at just the slightest throttle input, the Murano fulfills the promise made by its seductive outer skin. The 3.5-liter V6 pumps out a healthy 260 horsepower, which can be directed to all four wheels if so desired. Handling the route between engine and wheels is Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission with D-Step Logic, a technology that mimics the shift points of a traditional stepped automatic while delivering the efficiency only a CVT can attain. While the Murano is not set up for off-road adventuring, its AWD system and nearly seven inches of ground clearance make it ideal for tackling deep snow.
The 2017 Nissan Murano’s interior is equally matched to its dramatic exterior, offering rich textures, soft yet supportive seating and a number of really cool features such as the 7-inch customizable display and available 8-inch touch-screen display.
PARKING WITHOUT PEER
With its tall ride height and narrow side glass, parking the Murano can be a daunting task. Thankfully the Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection employs four onboard cameras providing a full 360-degree exterior view, while three radar systems help avoid forward collisions and rear cross-traffic predicaments.
