2005 Nissan Murano SE FWD OverviewThe Nissan Murano is an excellent choice for someone who wants the smooth ride and responsive handling of a car, the cargo space of a wagon, and the high driving position of an SUV.
The Murano is a good example of a crossover vehicle: It's designed to haul cargo like a sport-utility, but ride and drive like a car.However, this crossover handles better than the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, and it drives more like a sports sedan.
Murano integrates aerodynamics and high fashion, with a sleek front end, smooth lines from front to back, and a greenhouse that slopes rearward, ending in a large but graceful C-pillar.Inside, Nissan resisted the temptation to cram in three rows of seats like the Highlander and Pilot do.Instead, like a car, the Murano has just two rows of seats, accommodating four (or at most five) passengers in comfort.It's not a substitute for a minivan, nor does it look like one.
The futuristic look is backed by sporty performance.The Murano is powered by Nissan's beefy 3.5-liter V6, the same engine found in the 350Z sports car, putting out 245 horsepower.It comes with a continuously variable transmission, a high-tech automatic that's smooth and responsive while offering superior gas mileage within its class.Murano's road-tuned suspension offers smooth and sporty handling.The Murano shares much of its underpinnings with the Nissan Altima and Maxima sedans (but is not related to the Infiniti FX).
All-wheel drive is available for better grip and stability in foul weather.A new entry-level Murano S lowers the base price.
