Nissan has upgraded its popular Murano crossover

Nissan has upgraded its popular Murano crossover”

In addition, Nissan has confirmed that the refreshed Maxima receives its Safety Shield 360 package as standard which includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, and Rear Automatic Braking.

That said, Dan Monhke, senior VP of sales and marketing for Nissan in the USA, was adamant that the company remains committed to its sedans. Three generations onward, the Murano has become the semi-luxury, semi-invisible model in Nissan's lineup next to the cheaper Rogue, which outsells the Murano by almost five to one.

Inside, the Murano doesn't change much but does get some luxury-oriented features like semi-aniline leather seats with diamond quilted panels and contrasting piping on the seat and armrests.

Updated Nissan Murano can be distinguished through the modified radiator grille, new front bumper with triangular sections fog lights, updated tail lights and wheel of a different design.

More importantly, Nissan has introduced the Safety Shield 360 suite of six advanced active safety and driver-assist technologies, some of which were available in the old model. The 2019 Murano also adds standard 2nd row supplemental side air bags and front passenger supplemental knee air bag. The new colors include sunset drift chromaflair, mocha almond pearl, and deep blue pearl. They're only available, however, on the SL with the Technology package or the Platinum.

Inside, Nissan has outfitted the 2019 Maxima with a new seat insert pattern and charcoal headliner and pillars for SR and Platinum Reserve Package grades. All Muranos also add Nissan's Rear Door Alert feature and Intelligent Driver Alertness, which warns a driver if he or she is too drowsy. Nissan wants to make this tech standard on one million new vehicles by 2021, but strangely hasn't committed to making it standard on every model like Toyota has.

The Murano's 260-hp 3.5-liter V-6 and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) carry over on both front- and all-wheel drive models.

An 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, while SL and higher trim levels now include standard navigation.
