The Murano is Nissan’s halo vehicle for its range of crossovers and SUVs, and for 2015, Nissan ushered in the third-generation model. On the outside, the new Murano showcases Nissan’s new design language, featuring a larger, more defined grille, sporty headlights, and a sleek but aggressive front fascia. The side profile is muscular and sculpted compared to the outgoing model, featuring flared rear quarters wraparound taillights, and some sport trim inserts. Around back, the Murano got taillight units that mirror the headlights up front, a taller rear fascia with dual exhaust outlets, and a rear hatch that defines the entire look of the new SUV. Borrowing inspiration from the Resonance Concept, the interior has been completely redesigned with a lower sitting instrument panel, an eight-inch color touchscreen and Zero Gravity seats as standard equipment. The same 3.5-liter engine carries over from the previous generation, but the new Murano is said to be 20-percent more efficient thanks to a decrease in weight and the improved Xtronic transmission.

So, with a new look and a premium interior, the new Murano definitely moves away from its unconventional look of the past. The interior is now more spacious, and there is a host of new safety and connective technology features that just screams premium luxury. Of course, that should come as no surprise considering the Murano has some pretty stiff competition from models like the Toyota Highlander and Acura RDX. Does the new Murano have what it takes to take on such a strong and competitive segment? Find out for yourself with our full review below.
