The 2014 Nissan Murano is a Crossover with Lots of Style

The 2014 Nissan Murano is out to turn heads make the completion sweat, and show that a crossover SUV does not need to be boxy or limited in any way.  With excellent sporty curve style from the front of the bumper to the tip of the rear tailgate the 2014 Nissan Murano shows off with some great looks and features that are turning heads around the country.

The 2014 Nissan Murano offers its inhabitants a smooth yet powerful ride whether used as a daily driver, weekend toy, or taking it for a long trip, the 2014 Nissan Murano offers power to tackle hills and mountain roads as well as the stiffness and quickness of steering response to handling changing curves and offer excellent handling no matter what the driving conditions.

The 2014 Nissan Murano is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 in both the standard and CrossCabriolet models.  In both this is coupled with Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) giving the driver a smooth transition from gears and adding a little to the fuel economy that is badly needed in the Murano.  The base model brings a 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque and offers a fuel mileage of 18 city/24 hwy mpg for the front wheel drive version and 18 city/23 hwy mpg in the all-wheel drive models.  For the CrossCabriolet version the horsepower is increased to 265 and the torque also rose to 248 lb.-ft. while offering a fuel mileage of 17 city/22 hwy mpg.

The inside of the 2014 Nissan Murano is exceptional in quality and design with the controls right at the fingertips of the driver, lots of space for five full sized adults, a reclining 40/60 bench seat in the rear, and plenty of storage in the back for travel and weekend leisure alike.

Even though the outside has not been significantly updated since the Murano’s inception almost a decade ago the 2014 Nissan Murano looks fresh and contemporary with its rounded shape and sharp lines.  The sweeping curves from front to back along with the elongated tail offer more space for the passengers and cargo of the Murano to enjoy while riding or driving.  The CrossCabriolet model is a 2-door version with a convertible top and is a first for any crossover SUV.

The standard equipment offered for the 2014 Nissan Murano are included on four trim levels.  For the base S model a dual-zone automatic climate control, push button start, six-speaker audio system with auxiliary port, and a leather-wrapped shifter knob are all standard.  When moving up to the higher trim levels (SV, SL, and LE) the standard features included are Bluetooth, roof rails, automatic headlights, a power lift gate, illuminated steering-wheel audio controls, a vehicle security system, and power front seats.  For the CrossCabriolet model all-wheel drive is standard as well as a Bose premium audio system, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

Optional equipment for the 2014 Nissan Murano include such goodies as leather interior, power front seats, a color monitor and rearview camera display, navigation package with touch screen controls, Bluetooth connectivity, blind-spot monitoring, a lane-departure warning system, 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, roof-rail crossbars, and dual 7-inch LCD monitors with a DVD player for back seat entertainment.  All these optional features are available depending on the trim model chosen.

For the spacious and agile 2014 Nissan Murano S model the starting price point is $29,300, a very affordable price for such a great crossover SUV.  By moving up to the 2014 Nissan Murano LE with a full bevy of options the price ends up around $45,000 which is still not unreasonable for the fully loaded and fully entertaining Murano LE.  The 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet has been reduced from previous years to $43,715 which is a great deal for a uniquely styled crossover SUV of this caliber.

The 2014 Nissan Murano is a fantastic crossover SUV for a daily driver, weekend fun, or long distance travel.  With a ton of space and a great deal of optional features along with seriously easy drivability and affordability this is a vehicle any shopper needs to consider when looking for a great SUV.
