First Look: 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet

The convertible CUV boasts an impressive set of cargo capacities. There's 7.6 cu-ft of space with the electronically actuated top stowed; 12.3 cu-ft with the top up. Sure, that's not a lot, but it bests most other convertibles.

The automaker's versatile 3.5-liter V-6 continues to power all four wheels. It's rated at 265 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque and mated to an Xtronic CVT gearbox.

Final EPA fuel economy ratings and a complete pricing schedule have yet to be released, but given the very niche buyer segment, we're guessing those won't matter much. The 2011 Nissan CrossCabriolet executes its mission as a eye-raising modern day crossover, but is it enough to be worthy of an entirely new segment? We'll let you know once we drive one.

Disgusting. Looks like something you would see hacked apart on the UK Top Gear show.
