Product Overview

Nissan Murano Mk3 (chassis code Z52) is a mid-size crossover in production from 2015. It is available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.5 to 3.5 liters.
Interestingly, Nissan continues to use weak CVTs on this rather large vehicle. It even pushes the car for offroad duty.
Otherwise, the car has no offroad pretense. It is a more basic car that looks like a Renault.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
For 2019, the Murano's more pronounced "V-Motion" grille and revamped headlamps do help to make it look more attractive. Inside, the look is much more dated, but while the cabin looks old, it's still comfortable as ever. The Murano comes standard with an abundance of tech features, but the SUV still feels behind the times.
