2011 Nissan Murano Front Three Quarter In Motion Am Hl
The Nissan Murano skipped a model year back in 2008 but came back to us recharged and revitalized for 2009. It hasn't been long since its refresh, but the contemporary midsize crossover will once again be altered with changed looks and a new SV trim.

The new, mid-level SV trim comes equipped with a driver's seat with power lumbar support, a seven-inch LCD screen with Nissan's RearView Monitor system, standard iPod connectivity, and Bluetooth. Step up to the SL-grade Murano and you'll get a heated steering wheel, a nine-speaker Bose sound system, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated HomeLink and a compass. Buyers of the top-end LE trim are treated to a new wood-grain hue in the cabin.

Nissan's 3.5-liter V-6 and the continuously variable transmission work well here. Hammer it from a standstill and the initial acceleration won't blow you away, but the Murano builds speed smoothly, and it's kinda cool to watch the tachometer needle move toward 6000 rpm without a single hiccup, by which point you're going 80 mph. Nissan has its CVT technology pretty well figured out.

Having driven the Honda Crosstour and Toyota Venza recently, I hopped behind the wheel with a sense of what the Nissan Murano would feel like. All three have powerful V-6 engines, all-wheel-drive, interesting exterior styling, and all are priced in the mid $30,000 range.

Like the Altima that graced our office recently, the Murano's biggest attribute is its powertrain. The Murano uses a version of the Altima's 3.5-liter V-6 but it has a lower output and is moving over 800 pounds more metal than in that car. Still, acceleration is more than adequate and, to me, Nissan's smooth CVT seems better suited here than it does in the sporty Altima.

Like the Juke crossover that's due late next year, the Murano's raison d'etre lies with styling. The strong, swooping lines, the angular headlamps, and the raked quarter windows turn heads. Love it or hate it, it gets your attention - which says something, considering how crowded the midsize crossover segment is these days.

It's not just the V-6 engine that improves the CVT experience, but how Nissan has tuned the gearbox. Where other CVTs (like that in the Cube) jump to a set rpm and stay there for eons while you accelerate, the Murano allows revs to climb steadily. The benefit is that you never feel trapped at a buzzy rpm. Accelerating from 50 mph feels pretty good, but the Murano is an absolute slug leaving the line.

Crossovers seem to age in dog years. When the Murano came out in 2003, it was one of the better driving utility vehicles on the road. Now, despite a recent redesign it doesn't come close to matching the driving refinement of other mid-size crossovers. As Jen and Eric noted, its biggest liability is the way it shimmies and shutters through bumpy turns. We're not saying the Nissan drives like a 1990s Chevy Blazer, but most of its newest competitors, including the Toyota Venza, basically drive like mid-size sedans.
