It was over a month ago when we received reports that Nissan would be unveiling the new Murano at the New York Auto Show next month. Now the Japanese automaker has confirmed its imminent arrival, offering up the brief teaser clip below to give us a very faint idea of what to expect.

In announcing the Murano's upcoming debut in Manhattan, the company described the Murano as "the halo vehicle for Nissan's expanding range of bold crossovers and SUVs," previewing the design that will distinguish a whole range of Nissans to follow.

Short of that, we've got little to go on, but we're expecting to see some traits from the Resonance concept of 2013 Detroit vintage finding their way onto the production version of a vehicle that has always been rather stylized from the start. Something (sales figures, perhaps?) tells us that the oddball CrossCabriolet will get lost along the way, not that we'll mind.

      An ***hat in a Murano Crosscabriolet cut me of the other day, which was the fourth time this has happened (I'm still amazed I came across four of these at all). No, they were not the same. I started thinking only certain types of people drive these things. If it's gone for good, I'll be fine. It's a completely awkward-looking vehicle, top up or top down.

      I'm curious to see how they're going to slot this into the lineup with the Rogue and Pathfinder. Maybe they're re-making the Murano to be to crossovers what Maxima has always tried to be to sedans. Heavier on the sport, less on the utility, sort of like a jacked-up Maxima wagon.

      I remember when the first generation came out I was blown away by the design. There was nothing alike during that time. Second generation was too safe and forgettable, this one looks promising.

      Glad to hear it . Had the first generation Murano , problems but nice looking -Black with Chromies ! The current edition looks like a jumping spider and is super ugly and awkward styling , I do cringe when I see one !! With the new Murano the question is : Is there a market for this ???

      The convertible will not be returning. And as a Nissan fan all I can say is thank God.
