Nissan Murano

The Murano is Nissan's quirky, distinctively styled SUV. Available with a choice of a thirsty 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine or rather slow 2.5-litre diesel, both models cost the same and feature just about all the equipment you could wish for as standard, including heated electric seats, satellite navigation and a panoramic glass roof. The Murano is more of a style statement than a mainstream choice, and is built for comfort rather than speed, so body roll in corners is noticeable and the steering is numb. However, grip is good thanks to the standard four-wheel-drive system and the cabin is well insulated from noise.
