Nissan has prepared the Murano for model year 2012. The luxury SUV gets a higher-quality interior, new 18-inch wheels, modified rear lights and an improved instrumentation.

The biggest changes to the Nissan Murano have taken place in the interior. In the dashboard, the orange lighting has given way to white. Furthermore, the lettering of the dials has been renewed. The center console now connects better with the rest of the interior because it is executed in the same color as the dashboard. The most striking change, however, is that the leather upholstery of the seats and the door panels is now pleated. In the back, the optional DVD screen has been replaced by two separate copies. These are now integrated into the head rest of the front seats.

The appearance has also been addressed. The rear lights are new and resemble those of the Qashqai. Two new metallic colors – Pearl White and Graphite Blue – contrast beautifully with the new 18-inch alloy wheels with five V-shaped spokes. The 20-inch alloy wheels with five double spokes are unchanged.

The Nissan Murano is delivered with a lot of luxury as standard; Twenty-inch wheels, an electrically operated tailgate and Surround View Cameras are included. Furthermore, the navigation system with a 7-inch touchscreen and a 9.3 Gb hard disk for music storage should not be lacking, and the BOSE audio system with iPod, Bluetooth and aux connections offers enough indulgence for music lovers. The list of standard equipment includes self-repairing Scratch Shield paint, rear privacy glass, bi-xenon headlamps, cruise control and electric folding rear seats. A DVD entertainment system for the rear passengers is available as an option.

Again, the engine range consists of the 2.5 liter dCi with 190 hp and the 256 hp 3.5 V6 petrol. The diesel is connected to a six-speed automatic and consumes 8.0 l / 100km, the gasoline gets a CVT and 106 liters of lust. Both the 2.5 dCi and the 3.5 V6 version of the Nissan Murano stand for $10890 in the used price list.

When Nissan launched the Murano in 2002 in the United States, it established the beginning of a new era in the history of the automotive industry: the first crossover, a mix of SUV and luxury saloon, started a new genre. In his case, the Murano was heading to the luxury market.

Now, with the dCi engine, a 2.5-liter diesel direct injection, which offers a combination of performance and consumption, the Murano receives a series of subtle improvements in quality including a new leather upholstery, a review of the colors of the interior, new body shades and a new instrumentation.

The most obvious changes in the body affect the rear pilots, which now resemble the compact crossover Nissan Qashqai, presenting an arrow shaped section with the red tulip.

In addition, two new metallic colors for the body are offered, being able to choose between Pearl White and Graphite Blue. The 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels have a five-spoke V-shaped design, while the 20-inch aluminum wheels feature the same elegant five-spoke design.

The Nissan Murano is known for its high level of equipment. The list of standard equipment includes Scratch Shield anti-scratch paint, rear tinted windows, bi-xenon headlights, cruise control, electrically folding rear seats, electric opening tailgate, 20-inch alloy wheels, navigation system with screen 7-inch touchscreen, 9.3 Gb hard drive, connections for iPod, Bluetooth and AUX-in and combined with the BOSE sound system of 11 speakers and rear parking attendant perimeter camera.

And, of course, the all-mode 4 × 4-i intelligent all-mode four-wheel-drive system that offers a firmer grip, even under the most difficult conditions.

The new Nissan Murano crossover is now more luxurious. Most of the changes that take place in the interior respond to the equipment. The electroluminescence of the dashboard is now white, replacing the old orange light. The writing of the instrument panel clocks has also been modified, the center console is more enveloping and is now better integrated in the cabin by which it was finished in the same color, the interior panels of the doors are covered in the same leather as covers the seats, presenting seams seen in grooved form.

The new Nissan Murano rides the 2.5 liter diesel direct injection dCi engine, designed specifically for Europe, with a significant contribution from the engineers of Nissan Technical Center Europe (NTCE) and which has been praised for its power and refinement.

Coupled to a six-speed automatic gearbox with Adaptive Shift Control, it offers the perfect balance between performance and efficiency, developing a maximum power of 190 hp and a torque of 450 Nm at only 2,000 rpm. The CO2 emissions are 210 g / km, while the fuel consumption, in combined cycle, is 10.6 l / 100 km.

This engine now complements the smooth and powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine, with 256 hp and with a torque of 334 Nm.
