Ever since bursting on the scene in 2003, the Nissan Murano has been popular with consumers looking for a vehicle in the crossover SUV segment. By combining style, plenty of passenger room and a good mix of efficiency and power, there's no secret why. When the Murano arrives along with the other 2016 new cars in Olympia, chances are it will remain a popular choice.
As other manufacturer's entries in the segment have caught up with the Murano, Nissan has once again taken to making bold strokes when redesigning the exterior. Futuristic lines, curved and sporty, define the outside of the new Murano. There's the floating roof, plenty of chrome accents and winged headlights that give Nissan's crossover a newly distinguished look.
Inside, Nissan's zero-gravity seats make their debut. The Murano even doubles down, placing them not only up front, but in the second row as well. These seats make even long drives comfortable. An increase in size over last year gives passengers a bit more elbow room as well.
Under the hood, a 3.5L V6 continues to power the Murano. It's got plenty of power, putting out 260 horsepower. EPA-estimated fuel economy checks in at 24 mpg combined, which is pretty average for the class.
The usual sportiness of the Murano has been softened a bit when it comes to handling. Nissan softened the suspension giving the new 2016 Murano a smoother, more luxurious ride.
Just like 2003, the Nissan Murano has again seized the lead in the crossover segment. If you are in the market for a new vehicle in the Olympia area, cruise by the Olympia Auto Mall today and take the new 2016 Nissan Murano for a test drive.
