Nissan Murano (2008 – 2011): At A Glance
- Insurance Group 33
- On average it achieves 91% of the official MPG figure
Nissan claims its Murano to be the first full-size crossover. It's good looking and luxurious, but bulk and difficult to judge due to big triangular blindspot opposite the driver. Diesel from September 2010 partly solves the thirst and emissions problems and is decently refined, but the more compact Infiniti EX 3.0d with V6 235PS diesel makes more sense.
