What’s New for the 2015 Nissan Murano?
The Nissan Murano is all-new for the 2015 model year. The biggest changes are to the exterior, interior, and engine.
2015 Nissan Murano Exterior
The 2015 Nissan Murano is a bit of a showboat. Boomerang headlights, a floating roof, and curved body sides make it hard to miss in the streets. It’s been designed with aerodynamics in mind though, and it shows. The lines on the car truly make it seem as though it could cut through the air with ease.
2015 Nissan Murano Performance
The 2015 Nissan Murano still only offers the same engine, but it’s a good one. The 3.5-liter V6 produces 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque, which has been retuned for the new model year. The Xtronic continuously variable transmission now has new “D-Step Logic” to make shifting smoother and more responsive.
2015 Nissan Murano Efficiency
The biggest improvements to the engine for the 2015 can be seen in the efficiency department. The 2015 Nissan Murano gets 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 24 mpg combined for both front-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations, which is 20% better than the previous model.
2015 Nissan Murano Interior
The interior is the SUV’s centerpiece. The “zero gravity” seats are likely more comfortable and supportive than any you’ve ever tried in a car. There’s a massive available panoramic roof that provides pleasant natural lighting and a rear USB port for backseat entertainment. Better yet, nearly all the materials are soft-touch and high quality, which when combined with the woodlike trim gives a palpable upscale feel whenever you find yourself inside the 2015 Nissan Murano.
2015 Nissan Murano Safety
The 2015 Nissan Murano comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, hill-start assist, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, active front head restraints, and a rearview camera. Upper trims offer extra safety features like a 360-degree around view monitor and adaptive cruise control.
