2015 Nissan Murano Presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show

The Japanese brand has finally debuted the all-new Murano and it looks a million times better than the second-generation model. In addition to the botoxed everything, there’s also added luxury and technology inside, as well as a more refined engine and gearbox.

Built in the U S of A in Canton, Mississippi, the 2015 Nissan Murano comes in eight flavors to suit everyone’s needs. The lineup starts with the base S FWD and continues with the S AWD, SV FWD, SV AWD, SL FWD, SL AWD, Platinum FWD and the range-topping Platinum AWD trim level we'd go for.

About pricing, you’ll have to pay at least $29,560 for the least ritzy of models (the Murano S FWD) or sizable $40,600 for the all bells and whistles (Murano Platinum AWD). However, two things are similar on all models and trims. One of them is the 3.5 V6 with 260 hp and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque.

The second piece of kit is represented by the updated Xtronic CVT box, which promises sporty response and smoothness and includes a new D-step Logic Control. The latter simulates the shifts of a normal auto box, giving a natural acceleration feeling without the annoying high rpm 'errrm’ of other CVTs.

Compared to the outgoing model, the all-new Murano is 20 percent more fuel efficient, says Nissan. That’s possible thanks to a number of factors, such as weight reduction (approximately 145 lbs / 65 kilos), low rolling resistance tires, air grille shutter a la the Ford Focus, a low 0.31 Cd, underbody covers that enhance airflow, as well as improvements to the Xtronic continously variable transmission.
