Driving the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover is just as much fun as any convertible with a powerful engine. It boasts a 3.5 liter 265 hp V6 that is paired with one of the top continuously variable transmissions in use. It comes in all wheel drive and handles just like the traditional Murano. Amazing control and precise steering make it fun for any style of trip. The power operated soft top can easily be operated and is quick to raise and lower. The power behind the CrossCabriolet is the same power found in the traditional Murano that has already impressed buyers and reviewers.
The biggest downfall with the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover is that it only comes in one trim. The good side of that is that the trim is fully loaded. However, that doesn't leave an entry level alternative for those that want to spend a little less on their crossover. The base trim offers the 3.5 liter 265 hp V6 engine, a standard CVT and all wheel drive. It can go from 0 to 60 in 8.2 seconds and has a whole host of features that come standard. With this crossover you will get automatic xenon headlights, 20 inch alloy wheels, foglamps, fully powered soft top, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual zone climate control, leather upholstery, cruise control, heated front seats, an 8 way power driver's seat with lumbar adjustments and memory, heated and power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and a seven speaker Bose system with CD, satellite radio and an iPod interface. The only options available on the CrossCabriolet is a navigation system.
The safety features that are standard on the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover are almost identical to the Murano. Antilock brakes are standard. Traction control, stability control, side airbags at the front seat, active front head restraints and door mounted side curtain airbags are also standard.
Buyers who opt for the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet SUV Crossover are getting a vehicle that is unlike any other. A comparison in SUVs and convertibles will net results that share some of the characteristics, but nothing exactly like this crossover convertible. The down side is that it has an odd appearance. Most will find they either really like or dislike the look of the crossover convertible. It's only available in one trim, and though there is a lot offered in that trim, it limits those that want to spend a little less on their vehicle. The handling is excellent but it will feel slightly bulky in the curves. Overall, it's a powerful vehicle that offers a lot of advantages for someone that wants a crossover but also desires the fun that comes with a convertible. It has the room of an SUV, the handling of a sedan and the upscale features that often only come with a high-end car.
