The Nissan Murano was the first crossover released by Nissan Motors for the US and Canadian markets. It debuted in 2002 as a 2003 model and was produced directly in the United States. The Murano remained the only crossover offered by Nissan until the Rogue compact crossover hit the market in 2007. However, it wasn't until 2010 when the convertible version was first unveiled. Released to the public at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover went in a direction that was virtually unheard of. It sought to combine two styles of vehicle that had not yet merged. The SUV and the soft top convertible would blend together to create a vehicle that is as unique as its name.
The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover is the two door convertible version of the four door Murano. Unlike many of the convertibles on the market, there are distinct advantages to be had with the CrossCabriolet. As a crossover it has far more room than the standard convertible. In fact, it even has a backseat that can easily be used by passengers. Up to two people can fit comfortable in the backseat, a feat not possible in most convertibles.
The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover also provides a cargo space that is unheard of in the typical convertible. Even with the soft top lowered, there is still plenty of room to haul cargo, equipment, luggage or even groceries. The entire cabin of the CrossCabriolet is more spacious and luxurious than an average convertible and that allows this to be an alternative for families that want the benefits of a soft top without the space confinements that come with it. It makes riding in the convertible possible whether the driver is taking a leisurely trip or simply running to purchase groceries for the week.
Like its Murano sibling, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet has a luxurious and stylish appeal. Much of the cabin is identical between both models and either could rival the Infiniti FX in terms of class and features. The controls are the same regardless of whether in the convertible or standard version and the seats provide comfort for all passengers. It is completely unique and will easily turn heads at every stop, a fact which appeals to many of the buyers. This crossover gives the advantages of an SUV, a car and a convertible all at once.
