Vehicles with Consumer Reviews
Safety features such as blind-spot warning and Moving Object Detection are optional. An SV Value Package is available and includes Bose audio system, power liftgate, and navigation. SV models now include auto-dimming rearview mirror and HomeLink remote transceiver.
For 2012, Nissan adds a new Platinum Package that brings 20-inch wheels and standard navigation. The Murano S models gain a new 7-inch monochrome screen.
As it was when introduced in 2003, the 2012 Nissan Murano SUV remains a step ahead of the competition. Where many manufacturers are just now trumpeting the efficiency of a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Murano has always been equipped with the technology. And, where other small SUVs are moving away from the boxy and bland design, the Murano has always been a sleek and stylish trendsetter. The Murano crossover is packed with all manner of modern amenities. Nissan's response to the rapidly changing world of design, however, has left the automotive community bewildered on behalf of the 2012 Murano CrossCabriolet, an eccentric convertible version that appears to answer a question the market has yet to ask. While competitors such as the Ford Edge, Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-7 and Toyota Highlander can all match the 2012 Murano for features and interior space, the Murano's driver-oriented suspension, slick styling and high-end luxury interior keep it one step ahead of the SUV still trying to keep up.
