Crossovers are one of the most popular vehicle segments in the U.S. As a result, it can be difficult to find a CUV for a great price. Demand is high for CR-Vs, RAV4s, Escapes, Sorentos and such, which makes automakers and dealers less inclined to load CUVs with incentives and negotiate lower prices.

However, we seem to have found an anomaly in the 2012 Nissan Murano – a sporty, capable and stylish CUV that has been a hit in America for the Japanese automaker. Car shoppers looking for a sleek crossover will want to give this a spin, as it's currently selling at 10.5% under MSRP on average, which equates to a savings of $3,103.

The Murano features Nissan's 3.5-liter six-cylinder VQ engine, which generates 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with adaptive shift control and gets an EPA estimated 18 mpg City, 24 mpg Highway. And if you need to haul anything, the Murano S has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs.

Standard features for the Murano include 18-inch (20-inch on LE) alloy wheels, cruise control, LED rear taillights, and dual zone automatic air conditioning. Standard safety equipment includes, vehicle traction and stability control, brake assist, six airbags, and front seat active head restraints.

Inside, the Murano can comfortably seat up to five and has a maximum cargo capacity of 64.0 cubic feet.

The 2012 Murano is currently selling at $26,437, which is well below both its MSRP and invoice price. CUV shoppers should head to a Nissan dealer and bargain hard on this model.

But don't fret if you're looking for something other than a CUV right now. Check out our picks for the best deals in other categories in the gallery below.
