Combing Style and Luxury: The 2015 Murano Interior

2015 Murano Interior

Not only does the new Murano offer owners a dynamic driving experience, but, thanks to clever design, the interior is also incredibly comfortable and stylish. In fact, the Murano interior was recently nominated to the Ward’s list of 10 Best Interiors for 2015.

According to Nissan, the 2015 Murano interior features an array of premium materials, advanced technologies, and ergonomic contours. This includes NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, an eight-inch color display with multi-touch control, rear USB port with smartphone interface, Around View® Monitor, Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition, 11-speaker Bose® premium audio system, and Blind Spot Warning, among other things.

“First time I saw the new Murano interior, I was blown away by the pearlescent film that’s used to lovely effect on the doors, instrument panel, center console and armrest,” said Tom Murphy, executive editor, WardsAuto World. “The rest of the interior is brilliantly executed as well, from the smooth, flowing lines of the instrument panel to the ample cargo hold.”

Aside from the interior design, the Murano also has a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine under the hood generating 260 hp. This is mated to an advanced Xtronic transmission, allowing for up to 28 highway mpg. It’s hard not to like the new Murano, considering all of these incredible new features.

The 2015 Nissan Murano has been awarded the Kiplinger Best Value Award.

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.
