What is believed to be the new generation Nissan Murano crossover has been spotted in European testing. The current model was introduced to the States in 2003 and to Europe a year later, so it’s due for a change.
Expect the new car to be on the market as a 2009 model, possibly previewed at the Los Angeles auto shows in November or at the Detroit show next January. It is expected to be available in both two and four wheel drive, as does the current version.
Reports are that the 2009 Murano was displayed to United States Nissan dealers at a company meeting at Nashville in April of this year. Though dealers were not allowed close enough to the car to see the interior, one dealer referred to the exterior appearance of the car as a “showstopper.”
