Opt for a luxurious take on the crossover market with the 2018 Nissan Murano.
Why Buy the Nissan Murano?
The New 2018 Nissan Murano balances luxury with performance. The Murano's exterior is both athletic and refined and the interior follows suit. Even in the base model, the Murano's interior, cloth seats on any other brand's budget, is replaced with a soft-touch suede material, while the higher trim levels boast luxurious perforated leather.
Aside from the exceptionally comfortable interior, the ride quality is also impressive. The Murano's suspension is well-cushioned, with very few of the road's bumps making it into the cabin area. To achieve this level of comfort, the suspension uses front struts along with a rear multi-link system to lessen jarring while still keeping the car stable.
Which Nissan Murano Model is Best?
The 2018 Nissan Murano has three models: the S, SL, and LE. The S model is the base model and comes standard with a powerful 3.5 liter V6 engine, powered windows, and door locks, an impressive 6-CD audio system, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The next model up is the sweet spot for features and luxury. The SL offers two variants, the base SL and the SL 360 package. The base SL offers all that the S has, plus illuminated steering wheel audio controls, an 8-way power driver's seat, black roof rails, and fog lamps. The SL360 offers even more than the base SL, adding on a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, moonroof, and metallic-tone wheels.
The ultimate luxury lies in the LE, which offer all of the features of the past models, while adding 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels, high-intensity headlights, integrated Ipod interface, Bluetooth phone system, Bose audio, and DVD viewing screens in the driver and front passenger headrest.
Are Nissan Muranos Reliable?
The Nissan Murano is a reliable, fairly low maintenance vehicle. Utilizing a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) reduces wear and tear on the engine components. Obviously, regular maintenance is essential to keeping your Murano in tip-top condition, but the Murano is a well-built vehicle that should give you confidence to drive.
Are Nissan Muranos AWD?
Front Wheel Drive (FWD) does come standard in the 2018 Nissan Murano, but All Wheel Drive (AWD) is an option for all models in the current lineup.
