Nissan Motor Co.’s 2015 Murano crossover will reach U.S. showrooms this year looking almost identical to the Resonance Concept that teased it at the 2013 Detroit auto show.
Nissan will try to reassert the Murano’s bold early styling for the second half of the decade. It retains the pronounced body side creases and backwards-sloping “floating” roof of the Resonance Concept. The Murano will feature a low-angled front windshield and wide stance. It receives angular “boomerang” head and taillights, sculpted side panels and a hidden D pillar. The roof and body sides sweep together in the back into a rear roofline spoiler.
The 2015 Murano will also receive several technology and safety upgrades, including turn-by-turn navigation, and a predictive forward collision system introduced by Infiniti, Nissan’s luxury arm, which responds to traffic activity two cars ahead. It will be offered with available leather, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel and customizable interior lighting.
