Driving Impressions

The Murano is lusciously shaped and performs with splendid passion. Acceleration is vigorous, and the gearless CVT operates seamlessly and ranks among the best. Passing at highway speeds produces no unusual sensations. The CVT delivers plenty of immediate energy with no fuss. Engine noise is minimal, but a high whine emerges if you keep your foot to the floor.

Handling is the Murano’s prime attribute. This SUV corners heartily and stays impressively flat through curves. Even in quick turns, there’s little body motion or roll, and the Murano feels utterly solid. Ride quality is pleasing, as the standard suspension cushions quite a bit of roughness.

The magnificent seats have great back and thigh support and appealing cushioning. Huge back pillars constrict over-the-shoulder visibility.
