Since the launch of the original 16 years ago, the Nissan Murano had a profound impact on the SUV market. As a pioneer of the CUV trend, it offered a forward-looking design sensibility that combined an elegant style with premium features – without a luxury price tag.
Now in its third generation, 2019 Nissan Murano receives a comprehensive refreshening. The revisions to the Murano exterior add a more pronounced front V-motion grille, redesigned LED headlights and taillights, new LED fog lights, new 18-inch and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheel designs and three fresh new exterior colors – Sunset Drift Chromaflair, Mocha Almond Pearl and Deep Blue Pearl.
Enhancements to the luxurious Murano interior are led by new semi-aniline leather-appointed seats with diamond-quilted inserts and contrasting micro-piping trim for the seats, door armrests and center console lid for the Murano Platinum grade. Other changes include three new interior trim finishers: Dark Wood-Tone (Platinum), Light Wood-Tone (SV, SL) and Metallic (S, SV, SL).
In addition, all 2019 Nissan Murano models feature Nissan's innovative Rear Door Alert (RDA) system and Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)1, which learns each individual driver's steering patterns and helps alert the driver when drowsy driving is detected. Available technology includes Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM), an 11-speaker Bose® premium audio system.
The engaging social lounge feeling interior includes features such as advanced Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, and available oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof. Standard on all grade levels is NissanConnect® featuring Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, with 8.0-inch color display with multi-touch control. Murano SL and above grades add standard NissanConnect with Navigation, which is revised for 2019 to include Door-to-Door navigation with 3D building graphics and satellite imagery, online POI search and premium traffic information.
Safety, security and driver assistance technologies have also been revised for 2019 with the availability of Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of six advanced active safety and driver-assist technologies designed to help provide 360 degrees of active driver assistance, crash avoidance and pedestrian detection.
Safety Shield 360 is a critical part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which provides technology in a way that moves people to a better world. Safety Shield 360 includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Rear Automatic Braking. Safety Shield 360 is standard on Murano Platinum and available as part of the SL Technology Package.
The 2019 Nissan Murano also adds standard 2nd row supplemental side airbags and front passenger supplemental knee airbag. Also available is Intelligent Lane Intervention (I-LI) and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).
Every 2019 Nissan Murano comes equipped with an advanced 3.5-liter DOHC V6 rated at 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. Also standard is an advanced Xtronic transmission tuned for quick response and smoothness. The Xtronic holds the engine at the ideal rpm for the conditions at hand, offering responsive power for passing when needed and quiet efficient running at cruising speeds or around town, with the standard D-Step Logic adding the feel of a traditional stepped automatic. All Murano grades are offered in front-wheel drive or Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
Fuel economy is rated at 20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined for both front-wheel and all-wheel drive models, thanks in part to the advance aerodynamics and engine/transmission efficiencies.
The 2019 Nissan Murano offers responsive handling and a comfortable ride through use of a 4-wheel independent suspension featuring a front strut/rear multi-link design. Also standard are 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering.
