2018 Nissan Murano

The 2018 Nissan Murano combines elegance and styling to create an innovative crossover vehicle designed to make one feel right at home.

Exterior

The exterior design is aerodynamically composed with sloped front to rear lines that offer a smooth downforce for a fuel-saving drive. It is comparable to a sports car with its drag coefficient of 0.31. The stylish rear spoiler completes the sporty image.

The motion-activated liftgate makes access to the cargo area easy. One kick under the rear bumper and the liftgate rises.

The Midnight Edition offers extras like 20-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, black trim around the license plate, a black V-motion grille and black mirror caps and roof rails. Other features in this package include special badging, black side mouldings and illuminated kick plates.

The Platinum package is another premium edition, and it includes LED headlights, 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels and climate controlled seats among other features from the SL package.

Inside

Nissan created a family-friendly interior filled with the latest technology and premium materials. Nissan is billing the 2018 Murano as a "unique social space" that brings front and rear passengers together in a leather trimmed and roomy interior cabin.

The emphasis on connectivity is seen in the spacious design of the centre console that delivers roominess and comfort between the seats. The rear seats have USB ports and optional heated cushions available. An optional panoramic moonroof extends from the front to the rear, and emphasises the openness of the cabin. This is a feature new Nissan owners in Calgary appreciate.

The driver's seat sits higher and the slimmer side pillars give the driver greater visibility and fewer blind spots.

When it comes to cargo room, the 60/40 split seats bring a generous 1,143mm of space across and when the seat is lowered, the space is increased to 1,890mm deep. New Nissan owners in Calgary like the extra cargo space.

A power return button located in the cargo area brings the folded seat back to its upright position without the need to go around to the passenger side and do it manually.

Technology

The 2018 Nissan Murano delivers the right interior temperature with its Remote Engine Start with Intelligent Climate Control. When the engine is started, the climate control system adjusts the temperature, defrosts the windows and heats the steering wheel. This makes the Nissan Murano a choice for Calgary drivers.

The Zero Gravity seats reduce stress on the back and hips in order to reduce fatigue. The Nissan Intelligent Mobility System offers safety features like Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Sport Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

When it comes to power, the 2018 Murano is equipped with a 260 horsepower 3.5-litre V6 coupled with an efficient Xtronic CVT that keeps the engine at the ideal RPM for the driving conditions.

Awards

The 2017 Murano was named Best 2-Row SUV for the Money by U.S. News & World Report three years in a row. It was also named the Best in Class for vehicle satisfaction in a premium mid-sized crossover SUV two years in a row.

The Murano is available in six colours and five trim levels, which makes the Nissan Murano a Calgary driver choice. Stop by and see all of the colours and options at Royal Oak Nissan of Calgary.
