2012 Nissan Murano review price picture

2003 Nissan Murano Photo

The 2012 Murano, a 5-passenger V6 wagon is Nissan's offering in the SUV "crossover" niche. Murano aims at the segment of the population looking for the features and comfort of a sedan coupled with the cargo capacity of an SUV. The all-new 2012 Nissan Murano carries people and cargo like an SUV with the handling and smooth ride of a sport sedan. Good looks and luxury interior tip the scales in our 2012 Nissan Murano review for top dog in a highly competitive class of vehicles.

Nissan outfits the Murano with a 3.5-liter V6 240 hp engine linked to a continuously variable automatic (Xtronic CVT), which, unlike standard automatic transmissions runs through a seamless transition of gear ratios. The Murano sports antilock 4-wheel disc brakes and front torso side airbags and front and rear curtain side airbags as standard equipment. While front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive are offered, the more accurate Nissan Murano picture is not that of an offroad vehicle. The 2012 Nissan Murano does not ship with low-range gearing in AWD. For extra traction up to 30 mph, its AWD can be locked into a 50-50 power split. Other Nissan Murano performance features include:

  • Stability control or VDC

  • Traction control

  • Stabilizer bars

  • 4-wheel vented disc brakes with brake assist

  • Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)

To insure predictable handling and a comfortable ride, Nissan utilizes 4-wheel independent suspension. Taking everything into account, the 2012 Nissan Murano MSRP price of $28,199 is not too hard to take considering what you get.

Nissan Murano comes in SL and SE trim levels. Both offer only two row seating. The more popular Nissan Murano SE comes with a firmer suspension and high-intensity xenon headlights as standard. Rear seats recline, and offer a remote flip-down function. When more cargo space is needed, Murano's rear seats can fold flat. Dual-zone climate control and tilt steering wheel are standard on both. Options include antiskid/traction-control system, power-adjustable pedals, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and rear-DVD entertainment. The options and standard equipment complete the 2012 Nissan Murano picture, a vehicle that satisfies your needs to be ensconced in luxury while hauling people and cargo.

Safety systems in the 2012 Nissan Murano include: dual stage front air bags, front seat side impact air bags, curtain-type air bags for front and rear head protection and front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters. Summarizing our 2012 Nissan Murano review, we conclude Murano offers state-of-the-art safety, classy good looks, and SUV practicality at a Murano MSRP price that will allow you to continue paying the rent.
