Nissan has unveiled the new third-generation Murano, with styling quite similar to the Resonance concept, from last year’s Detroit Motor Show.
The new Murano features boomerang shaped headlights, floating roof, V-Motion front fascia and bulging wheel arches.
The interior is more upscale with premium materials and a modern design, boasting “Zero Gravity” seats, wraparound wood trim, metallic accents, push button ignition, a dual-zone automatic climate control system and a 7-inch high-resolution display at the instrument cluster.
Other available technology features include NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 8-inch colour display with multi-touch control, 11-speaker Bose premium audio system, and Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System.
Under the bonnet is a 257bhp 3.5-litre V6 linked to a an Xtronic transmission. All-wheel drive is optional.
The outgoing Murano was dropped from the brand’s UK lineup due to slow sales and Nissan is currently evaluating the market, so it is possible the new third-generation model could be reintroduced here.
The new Murano will debut this week at the New York Auto Show.
