First crossover ragtop has me scratching my head

Rick Kranz is product editor for Automotive News
I mentioned last month that the convertible version of the Nissan Murano would be the most talked about vehicle unveiled at the Los Angeles auto show.

Well, the wraps have been removed, and the world can now see the 2011 Murano CrossCabriole, the world’s first convertible crossover. Sales begin early next year.

Take a look at the attached photo gallery. Has Nissan created a winner?

My opinion: This vehicle won’t help the brand.

What do you think?
