Step aside, all other crossovers; the new Nissan Murano is taking over the industry. The latest crossover model from Nissan is making quite a stir, especially since it was named Kiplinger’s Best New Midsize Crossover. This Kiplinger Best Value Award is a prestigious honor for the new Murano.
According to Nissan, Kiplinger’s judges vehicles on price, performance, value, safety, roominess, and driving impressions. Out of all the new crossovers tested, the Murano stood out as the best – which says quite a bit considering the size of this class.
“Nissan essentially created the crossover segment with the debut of the Murano in 2002, and now, 13 years later, the 2015 Nissan Murano is helping define the segment once again,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president of marketing at Nissan. “The redesigned Murano was created to provide drivers with an undeniable sense of comfort, style and innovation and this award certainly reaffirms that ideal.”
The new Murano features NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seating, NissanConnectSM with Navigation, and an Around View® Monitor among other things. Not only that, but the 260 hp engine is rated at 28 mpg highway when combined with its advanced Xtronic transmission. All in all, the Murano was a no brainer for the Best Value Award.
