2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet – Click above for high-res image gallery

We're really curious as to whether or not the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet has what it takes to succeed in the U.S. market. If our friends to the north are any indication, it won't be such a big hit, especially in regions that receive snow and ice.

The Globe and Mail reports that Nissan Canada isn't interested in selling the funky crossover/convertible, preferring instead to sit back and gauge the vehicle's U.S. launch before committing to anything. Ian Forsyth, Nissan Canada director of planning and strategy, told the newspaper that they "continue to assess the opportunity and success in the U.S. market to see if there is evidence to support a change in our position."

The top of the Canada sales chart is typically filled with economy cars like the Mazda3 and trucks like the Ford F-150, so we can see why a country with six months of snow can do without the CrossCabriolet. Still, since we Americans are all too used to being overlooked for vehicles that are offered in Europe, we know some of our Canadian friends won't be too happy to hear this.
