The one-of-a-kind Murano CrossCabriolet is the only mid-sized convertible crossover on sale in the U.S. Since its debut in 2011, it has garnered a lot of attention from the press. If you buy one, you’ll be getting attention, too.
What's New for 2014
The CrossCabriolet moves into the 2014 model year with no changes.
Choosing Your Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet
Based on the conventional Murano crossover, the CrossCabriolet features seating for four and loads of luxury, comfort and convenience equipment. One of its cooler innovations is the Bose sound system that automatically adjusts the volume when the top is raised or lowered.
The CrossCabriolet is equipped with the same engine as the conventional Murano. This 3.5-liter V6 produces 256 horsepower and operates with a continuously variable transmission. Nissan’s Intuitive all-wheel drive automatically adjusts to road conditions and is the only drivetrain available for the CrossCabriolet.
Nearly all of the Murano’s available features are included in the CrossCabriolet, but there are a few options.
- Navigation package: This is the only major option available and it includes a hard-drive navigation system with NavTraffic, NavWeather and Zagat restaurant reviews. It also offers Bluetooth streaming audio capability and voice recognition as well as a 7-inch color touchscreen.
- Interior accent lighting: These LED lights are preprogrammed with 20 color options for the front footwells.
- LED daytime running lights
Buyers of the 2014 CrossCabriolet choose one of four exterior colors and one of three upholstery/roof combinations. Not all of the interior combinations are available with all exterior colors. For example, if you choose the midnight garnet exterior, you can only get black upholstery and a black roof, but if you select the pearl white exterior, the black/black combo is not available.
In choosing your interior/top color package, you should be aware that the cashmere leather/beige top and the camel leather/black top options carry an additional cost listed at $500. Only the black leather/black top package is included in the base price, and it is not available with all of the exterior colors.
