2007 Nissan Murano Review

By

For those seeking the room and versatility of an SUV without the boxy styling or ponderous handling, Nissan builds the Murano. Based on a car platform, the crossover Murano SUV features unit-body construction that allows for a more sophisticated suspension setup as well as a more rigid structure. The trade-off is less towing capacity and a loss of true off-road ability, but the benefit is a much higher level of on-road ride and handling. The Murano also features a number of cutting-edge technologies, such as a standard CVT shiftless transmission and one of the best V6 engines in the industry. The Murano's space-age interior styling and lofty price tag may not be everyone's cup of tea, in which case more traditional crossovers, such as the Toyota Highlander, may be better choices.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you like a trendy look that's outside the norm, but if you need room and versatility, the Murano might be a good fit.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The Murano's sporty styling will not appeal to everyone. The large rear pillar creates a big blind spot, the all-wheel-drive system is not designed for rugged off-road adventuring and seating capacity is limited to five passengers.

What's New for 2007

No major changes for 2007.

Driving the Murano
Driving Impressions

The Murano's Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is "stepless," meaning it is without individual gear ratios. Under acceleration the engine remains at a fairly constant speed, in or near its most...

... efficient range, while vehicle speed changes are handled by the continuously changing "gearing" of the transmission. As a result, the driver will feel no gear shifts and gains the benefit of efficient and exceptionally smooth operation.

With its strong 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Murano does more than just perform well in a straight line. It handles corners and emergency maneuvers with balance and precision, and will give drivers a feeling of sure confidence. Further assistance is available with the optional Vehicle Dynamic Control, which includes the function of traction control.

CVT Transmission
The smooth CVT transmission, available with a "six-speed manual-shift mode," adds a touch of sporting flavor to the driving.

Rear Organizer Tray
The Murano's rear organizer tray helps keep small items from being tossed around the rear cargo area.

The Murano's interior can comfortably seat five passengers and still have room for their cargo. The trendy, slick interior includes an expansive instrument panel featuring two deep storage trays that are perfect for storing maps, travel guides, snacks and the like. Rear seats offer excellent head and shoulder room, and can be reclined for those road-trip naps.

Exterior

The sporty Murano stands apart from its competitors with a slanted front grille and headlamp treatment, big 18-inch wheels and a beltline that sweeps sharply upward toward the rear. Some will like it, and some will not.
