2015 Nissan Murano gets edgier, lighter for NY [w/video]

Nissan's Murano stands as one of the originators of the crossover movement – it was perhaps the first such vehicle to throw out the idea that a CUV had to look like a boxy, cladded-up sport utility vehicle in order to be successful.

    Over the years, I've been given many nicknames – a few of them have even been repeatable around small children.
