SAFETY

The Murano CrossCabriolet has two sets of lower Latch anchors in the rear seats, but more importantly, the roomy backseat could easily house even the chunkiest infant carriers.

With the top down, it was a cinch to get child-safety seats in and out of the car. I could simply lift them in and out without reaching, bending, stretching or bumping into an inadequate door opening. I appreciated the CrossCabriolet's high side walls; they came up to nose-height or higher on my kids. Convertible aficionados may balk at the side walls, but they gave me an added sense of safety and security, knowing that my kids were mostly covered in the second row when the top was down.

The Murano comes with standard all-wheel drive, four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system with traction control, active roll bars that deploy if the car tips, and six airbags, including side curtains that deploy from the doors, but they don't protect the rear passengers.
