The 2016 Nissan Murano has a V6 engine with a 3.5-litre capacity and production of 260 horse power. In regard to Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), the model beats most of the other vehicles in the market. With the help of programmed gear ratios, the transmission is mostly regular automatic. Strong brakes are a reputable feature of the Murano. Although negotiating corners is not as smooth as one would want, you can easily upgrade the wheels from the standard 18-inch to 20-inch. The only low comes when you have to drive over harsher ground.
One of the best rewards for Nissan’s fans is the redesigning of the 2016 Murano’s interior. The windshield-pillar trims as well as the liners in the storage area are made of padded fabric while the sides of the center console make the best of soft and supple material. Employing its ‘Zero Gravity’ seats principle, Nissan has ensured the comfort of all the vehicle’s occupants. The front seats are heated and ventilated while the rear ones have been provided with thigh support as well as enough legroom for the passengers. Behind the back seat is enough room for cargo. If that’s not enough, the ambient and relaxing lighting will take you in.
A combination of the old and the new, the 2016 Murano’s climate functions and primary stereo controls consist of the traditional knobs and buttons with a USB port. In regard to infotainment, Nissan has provided up-to-date graphics with a touchscreen as well as its own Mobile Apps technology—Nissan Connect—which offers Bluetooth capabilities, a text message assistant which is hands-free and a satellite radio. In addition, it provides apps for Facebook as well as internet and radio. When upgraded to Nissan Connect with navigation, the touchscreen becomes larger with capability for SiriusXM Travel Link services and Google search. Also available is 360-degree camera which easily detects moving objects.
The 2016 Nissan Murano beats most of the other vehicles in the same league when it comes to safety. Armed with a Predictive Forward Collision Warning System, it enables the driver to determine whether or not a collision is likely to occur by monitoring what is happening two vehicles ahead. The emergency braking system helps to remove the possibility of collision or make it lighter, through early detection. The Murano is also equipped with a Driver Attention Alert which brings the driver back to focus from distraction or even drowsiness.
The 2016 Nissan Murano falls between the mainstream SUVs and the luxury ones both in its power and design. With its five passenger capacity, the new Murano’s performance is basically as new as the old model but with some great changes. However, Nissan’s success in providing a new, more efficient and stylish model can hardly be put into doubt.
Since Murano was first introduced, the Nissan has made great effort in keeping in line with the efficiency and reliability which has been so much part of the model. If you have never tried the Murano, you don’t have to go back in time. Contact the dealer now for a test drive of the latest model.
