“WARD’S 10 Best Interiors”
TURN HEADS, TAKE FLIGHT
Inspired by the future of aerospace, Murano®'s striking aerodynamic body looks as though it was shaped by the wind. The fluid profile begins with the V-Motion Grille and sweeps into a signature floating roofline that appears to hover above the cabin, and ends at rear side pillars that resemble a jet's tail.
Floating Roof Appearance
The unique “floating roof” gives Murano® a lower, lighter profile — an inspired contrast to the bulkiness of a traditional SUV. The pillarless effect carries through to the interior, giving it an open, airy feeling.
Power Panoramic Moonroof
An available feature, the 2020 Murano®’s sweeping, uninterrupted moonroof reaches over both rows of seats, so even passengers in the back get a clear view of the sky and experience an open, natural atmosphere rarely found in the back seat of a crossover.
Style meets the street as Murano® glides over the road on available 20" Dark Hyper Silver wheels.
Signature Led and Daytime Running Lights
The boomerang-shaped headlights integrate with the aerodynamic profile to become a vital part of the dramatic overall design. Standard high-efficiency LED headlamps create a light pattern that replicates natural daylight. The standard LED daytime running lights dramatically arch around the headlights and provide a low-intensity, but highly visible light.

[] Pull that lever again and they’ll power up automatically.

VALET PARKING BUILT IN
Intelligent Around View® Monitor
A rear-view mirror is great when backing up, but when it comes to parking, it’s nice to see more than just what’s directly behind you. Murano’s available Intelligent Around View® Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual 360º bird’s-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views.

Geared Up for Efficiency
Class-Exclusive Next Generation Xtronic CVT®
Unlike conventional automatic transmissions, the virtually gearless Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) makes gear hunting a thing of the past. Fully variable gear ratios mean the CVT can hold the engine at the ideal RPM, giving you a wave of power when you need it, and achieving quiet, efficient cruising when you don't.
KEEPING YOU IN CONTROL
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
Terrain varies, but the evenness of your ride doesn't have to. The moment you head out, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, delivering power to both front and rear wheels for a better grip. Once you hit a steady pace, there's no sense powering all four wheels, so the system efficiently sends all the power to the front. Then, for enhanced cornering control and traction, it sends some of that power back to the rear.
Smart technologies are designed to help monitor conditions. Like a warning to let you know you’re straying from your lane, or a system that helps ensure you’re travelling on properly inflated tires.
