Although the 2017 Nissan Murano SUV can faithfully carry out its duties as a family-hauling crossover SUV, its art-house exterior styling makes it different than anything else in the segment. Given the Murano’s roomy and comfortable interior, Nissan’s description of its midsize SUV as a “social lounge” seems apt. The Murano offers passenger space on par with the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, yet its styling and features would seem more at home in a Lexus showroom. The Murano is refined on the road, handles surprisingly well for its size and offers up the latest in driver-assist and in-car entertainment systems. And while the Murano doesn’t offer a 3rd-row seat, we think given its size such a feature would be nearly useless.
If your car’s look is as important to you as your home, your wardrobe and yourself, Nissan’s 2017 Murano crossover SUV will definitely impress. A proven V6 engine and CVT transmission deliver excellent performance and fuel economy.
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.
Interior: This is where Nissan put a lot of time and effort. There isn’t a straight line in sight, with big, sweeping curves, and even the surfaces that you know are hard appear to be soft. Evidence the Murano is intended for adults is found in the accommodating “zero gravity” seats at the four outboard seating positions. The panoramic sunroof, and the interior is washed in natural light as if it were a back-porch sunroom. Behind the rear seat is over 30 cubic feet of space, and flipping the rear seat flat offers over 65 cubic feet.
You won’t miss the 2017 Murano in the strip-mall parking lot. Up top is a “floating roof,” leading the way is the “V-Motion” front end, at both front and rear are “boomerang” lights that wrap into the fenders, along the sides are curves so pronounced they presented engineering challenges in forming the stamping tools that make them. There isn’t one square inch that isn’t artfully folded and molded.
Under the Hood:
A 3.5-liter V6 with 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque powers the Murano. The transmission is Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable automatic, with D-Step Logic. The result is a smoothness common to CVTs, but with the feel of a traditional stepped automatic. In operation, the 2017 Murano is smooth, quiet and silky and has plenty of ready response and power for any reasonable driving situation.
