2015 Nissan Murano Overview

Zac Estrada
Automotive Editor - January 30, 2015

The Nissan Murano continues the model's tradition of combining brash styling with an unexpectedly premium feel for an alternative to typical cookie-cutters in the mainstream crossovers category.

What's new for 2015

The Murano is completely redesigned for 2015, with new styling front and rear and interior. The powertrain has been refined for better fuel economy. As with its previous two generations, the Murano remains a two-row, five-seat crossover.

Choosing Your Nissan Murano

All Muranos come with a 3.5-liter V6 with 260 horsepower and up to 28 mpg on the highway thanks to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is an option across four trim levels.

Prices for those trims tend to rise in $2,000-to-$3,000 increments, and mainly differ in equipment and styling details:


The base Murano comes well-equipped with features such as 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth hands-free and streaming audio, keyless entry and start, LED front running lights and taillights, a backup camera and a six-speaker touchscreen audio system with NissanConnect mobile apps.

All-wheel drive is optional, as is navigation, which is bundled in a package that also includes SiriusXM TravelLink, HD radio and a rear-seat USB port.


The mid-spec SV includes the Navigation Package of the S, along with remote start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat, fog lights and roof rails.

An available Premium Package offers a panoramic glass moonroof and a 11-speaker Bose audio system.


The SL adds more in the way of luxury features. This includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, the Bose audio system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink system, an around-view monitor for the cameras, memory settings for the driver's seat and outside mirrors, a power liftgate, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic warning.

The optional Technology Package includes a panoramic moonroof and adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and brake assist.


The top-trim Platinum goes after some premium-branded models with its lavish equipment. Included are 20-inch wheels, LED headlamps, heated rear seats, cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel, power adjustment for the steering wheel, and power-folding rear seats.

The Technology Package from the SL is also opional on the Platinum.

CarsDirect Tip

Every Murano trim level is well-equipped and well-priced for the class, so which you choose depends on your needs and budget. Stick with SV or SL if you're cross-shopping mainstream brands, or consider a Platinum if you're looking at crossovers from Audi, Lexus or Volvo.
