The Nissan Murano has been around for 5 years but it had never filled its full potential due to the lack of a diesel engine, but it looks like Nissan has now decided to turn over a new leaf and fit the Murano with what it has needed since its launch back in 2005. With so many of its competitors feeling at home in the UK the big Nissan SUV hasnt felt at home. While other rival manufacturers have increased their sales by offering efficient diesel engines, the Nissan Murano has soldiered on with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol which only managed to achieve 25 mpg and it has also been saddled with an unrefined CVT box. As a result of this its been hard to like. Nissan hopes this will change with the introduction of a new 2.5 litre 187bhp diesel engine which will be paired up to a six speed automatic gearbox which make the Nissan Murano fast quiet and economical. With 0-62mph coming in a time of 10.5 seconds and returning 35mpg which is up 10mpg up on the petrol version. The Nissan Murano new six-speed automatic gearbox has improved which now offers good responsiveness and refinement. The Nissan Murano 4x4 system offers good stability in all weather conditions, while the ride is smooth and with a decent amount of soundproofing the Nissan Murano new engine is virtually inaudible inside the cabin. Outside Nissan has updated the Murano but they have still managed to keep the distinctive looks, with a new grille which is easier on the eye than its previous model, while inside the cabin the Murano gets soft leather added to the supportive seats. The Murano is not cheap, but you do get a lot of standard equipment such as sat-nav with a seven-inch colour touchscreen, iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, 11-speaker Bose audio system and two parking cameras for the side and rear of the car.
