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. Now poised to enter its third generation, the midsize Nissan is not only getting a new look and a host of new technologies, it's getting a new home: Canton, MS. With dramatic new styling presaged by the Resonance Concept at last year's Detroit Auto Show, the new Murano debuting at this week's New York Auto Show includes a toned-down "V-Motion" nose and...

    Report: Nissan of Canada takes a pass on Murano CrossCabriolet
    1301340660

    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.

We managed to fall asleep at night by dismissing the ...

    Say what you will about cutting the roof off of a crossover. We're growing a CUV-sized soft spot for the 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. It's not that the vehicle is going to be snagging a design award any time soon – far from it.

    1289759820

    Yep, it's real. Nissan has just unveiled the 2011 Murano CrossCabriolet on its Facebook page. Incredibly, it's not nearly as much of a horror show as we'd feared. The transition to two-door form isn't so bad at all, and we're pleased to see that there's no Volkswagen Golf Cabrio-style basket handle. Still... weird. But hey, props to Nissan for having the ...
