The new 2018 Nissan Murano is one fantastic car. Its sharp exterior style is unique and dominant. The driver and passengers will get a comfortable drive in every possible aspect. Also, regardless of trim, the new 2018 edition will have a navigation and a big touchscreen. Its relatively good fuel economy is satisfactory, however, the safety segment is improved. As for the rivals in its category, the new 2018 model will compete against serious vehicles such as the Ford Edge, Toyota Highlander and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
2018 Nissan Murano Redesign
The exterior design of the new 2018 Nissan Murano is modern and very elegant. When I look the car, for me, the most distinctive detail is the V-shaped grille. Its boomerang headlights look very interesting and I have to mention, a lower front bumper. The exterior also includes swollen front fenders and mighty floating roofline. The base model sports 18-inch wheels. As for the available trim levels, we are in a position to choose between four options. The first two models are the S and SV. The third and the fourth are the SL and Platinum.
From the inside, the new 2018 Nissan Murano is neat, roomy and comfortable. Especially, I have to praise its spacious rear seat along with good cargo capacity. There is no place for concern, because the tall occupants will have enough headroom. The layout of the base model features Bluetooth connectivity, cloth upholstery and two USB ports. The list also includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay compatibility. It gets a 60/40-split folding second row and cloth upholstery. As for the upper and more expensive models, the available equipment contains a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, power folding rear seats, remote start and much more. All models come with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning. These features are standard now.
