Inspired by the future of aerospace, Murano's striking aerodynamic body looks as though it was shaped by the wind. The fluid profile begins with the V-Motion Grille and sweeps into a signature floating roofline that appears to hover above the cabin, and ends at rear side pillars that resemble a jet's tail.


Style meets the street as Murano glides over the road on available luminous 20” machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels.

    The boomerang-shaped headlights integrate with the aerodynamic profile to become a vital part of the dramatic overall design. Available high-efficiency LED headlamps create a light pattern that replicates natural daylight. The signature LED Daytime Running Lights dramatically arch around the headlights and provide a low-intensity, but highly visible light.

    Power panoramic moonroof

    An available feature, the 2016 Murano's sweeping, uninterrupted moonroof reaches over both rows of seats, so even passengers in the back get a clear view of the sky and experience an open, natural atmosphere rarely found in the back seat of a crossover.

    Floating roof appearance

    The unique “floating roof” gives Murano a lower, lighter profile — an inspired contrast to the bulkiness of a traditional SUV. The pillarless effect carries through to the interior, giving it an open, airy feeling.

Its interior is an expression of serenity We've redesigned the control panel to be simpler and more intuitive. Ambient lighting gives the cabin a soft, warm glow. Subtle chrome and trim accents in Brushed Silver and Jasper Pearlescent complement the Cashmere, Graphite, or Mocha Leather interior. And whether it's a hot day or a cool night, the cabin can be waiting for you at a pleasant 72°, thanks to the Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control. Rear passengers enjoy available outboard heated seats, plus a USB Connection Port with smartphone interface. Above you, the available expanded panoramic moonroof stretches from front to back and seems to breathe in light. An atmosphere this premium makes it easy to enjoy the journey — and might make your destination seem beside the point. [*]

It's got space and flexibility, and a seamless way to use it all. You can nearly double your cargo volume to 69.9 cubic feet when you collapse the 60/40 split rear seats with just the pull of a lever that can be found in either the driver's area, or the cargo area.[*] Pull that lever again and they'll power up automatically.

Power liftgate
For simpler loading and unloading, control Murano's available power liftgate from your remote, the dashboard, or a button on the hatch.

Around View Monitor

A rearview monitor is great when backing up, but when it comes to parking, it's nice to see more than just what's directly behind you. Murano's available Around View® Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual 360º bird's-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views. And since all obstacles aren't stationary, the available Moving Object Detection[*] system can warn you about moving objects detected in your vicinity.

2016 Nissan Murano with NissanConnect



With NissanConnect, your Murano becomes your compatible smartphone's best friend, so no more separation anxiety for you. Your own hand-picked music and podcasts, SiriusXM® Sports, movie listings, traffic updates and more are all just a swipe or tap away, working seamlessly together through your smartphone and Murano®'s available 8.0" color touch-screen.[*]



Murano's 3.5-L V6 pumps out 260-horsepower to keep you ahead of the pack when you need to be. An efficient 28 MPG[*] on the highway keeps it practical, and it doesn't hurt to have aerodynamics that achieve a drag coefficient comparable to some sports cars.


Next Generation Xtronic CVT®

Unlike conventional automatic transmissions, the virtually gearless Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) makes gear hunting a thing of the past. Fully variable gear ratios mean the CVT can hold the engine at the ideal rpm, giving you a wave of power when you need it, and achieving quiet, efficient cruising when you don't.


All-Wheel Drive

Terrain varies, but the evenness of your ride doesn't have to. The second you pull away, the AWD turns on, delivering power to both front and rear wheels for improved grip. Once you're up to speed, there's no sense powering all four wheels, so the system efficiently sends all the power to the front. Then, for enhanced cornering control and traction, AWD sends some of that power from the front wheels to the rear.

    When a collision is unavoidable, Nissan's Zone Body Construction helps absorb the impact while the advanced seat belt and air bag systems help protect passengers.
