If vehicles were given points for just good looks, than based on the 2012 Nissan Murano reviews pouring in, this crossover SUV would win the prize.
However, cars don’t run just on looks and thanks to an impressive 3.5-liter V6 and continuously variable automatic transmission combined with sport-tuned suspension and comfortable five-passenger interior, the 2012 Nissan Murano continues to impress new car shoppers worldwide.
And if you live in the Philadelphia area, no single dealership has a better selection of Murano’s to physically review than the experts at Montgomeryville Nissan.
Let’s be honest – the crossover SUV market is flooded with a tremendous amount of cars that look like boxes on wheels.
Each manufacture has their claims to fame on why their crossover SUV is great or better than the rest however, the Nissan Murano simply out performs the competition in several categories.
It also earns points for its attractive styling, high-quality materials and many standard features.
The midsized, five-passenger 2012 Nissan Murano crossover SUV is available in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and LE.
The base ‘S’ model is anything but plain and is delivered well-equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, variable intermittent wipers, deep-tinted rear privacy glass, keyless ignition & entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat, a reclining 60/40-split rear seat, a 7-inch monochrome screen, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo with a six-CD changer and an auxiliary audio input jack.
The SV adds automatic headlights, fog-lights, a panoramic sunroof, roof rack side rails, power front seats, a 7-inch color display, a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth and an upgraded audio system with satellite radio and iPod integration.
The SL model includes rain-sensing wipers, heated outside mirrors, a power lift-gate, leather upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, driver seat memory, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a nine-speaker Bose audio system with digital music storage.
Finally, the LE edition adds 20-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, heated rear seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column and wood interior trim.
Optional on SL and LE models is a navigation system that includes voice recognition, real-time traffic and weather, Bluetooth streaming audio and increased digital music storage.
Those two trim levels can also be had with a twin-screen headrest-mounted rear DVD entertainment system. New for 2012 is a Platinum Edition option for LE models that bundles exclusive 20-inch alloy wheels, a special Sapphire Black paint color and the navigation system.
As we mentioned above, the power-plant that propels the 2012 Nissan Murano is very impressive.
Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 which boasts 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque, the Murano has the power to drive past other crossover SUV’s while still maintaining great fuel economy. The power from the V6 is applied by the CVT with a choice of standard front-wheel drive or an available all-wheel-drive system for Murano buyers.
Safety is not compromised either as every 2012 Nissan Murano features standard antilock brakes, traction and stability control, active front head restraints, front-seat side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags.
The bottom line on the Murano is that this crossover SUV is tops in its segment. A great place to check out a wide-selection of Murano’s is the Nissan leader in the Montgomeryville area, Montgomeryville Nissan.
