For 2013, the Murano gets a set of new 'Safety Shield' accident-avoidance technologies. Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW)--each active-safety features intended to warn the driver of potential hazards--have been added to Murano LE Platinum Edition models and SL models with the Navigation Package. Otherwise, on Murano SV models there's a new Value Package option, combining the power liftgate, 9-speaker Bose audio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage-door opener, and a navigation system. And for the entire model line, two new exterior hues are offered: Midnight Garnet and Gun Metallic.
Car-like ride and handling; smooth, responsive powertrain; stylish cabin appointments; good seating position; easy to get in and out; cargo versatility; long, luxury-caliber feature list; new active-safety options
The 5-passenger Murano is Nissan's mid-size crossover model, and with the transformation this year of the Pathfinder to a 3-row crossover instead of a body-on-frame truck, the Murano now fits neatly into a complete Nissan crossover lineup, between the compact Rogue and the larger Pathfinder. The Murano offers a little more style and panache than some other entries in the mid-size class, while in top SL and LE trims it has the feature set of a luxury-badge vehicle. It's also a standout for interior comfort. Furthermore, with the introduction of several key active-safety features for 2013, it's now on par for features, interior comfort, and overall ambiance, with some luxury-brand crossovers.
