Benefits of Driving a 2013 Nissan Murano Sport Utility Crossover

The 5-passenger Murano is Nissan's mid-size crossover model, and with the transformation this year of the Pathfinder to a 3-row crossover instead of a body-on-frame truck, the Murano now fits neatly into a complete Nissan crossover lineup, between the compact Rogue and the larger Pathfinder. The Murano offers a little more style and panache than some other entries in the mid-size class, while in top SL and LE trims it has the feature set of a luxury-badge vehicle. It's also a standout for interior comfort. Furthermore, with the introduction of several key active-safety features for 2013, it's now on par for features, interior comfort, and overall ambiance, with some luxury-brand crossovers.

What's new for 2013?

For 2013, the Murano gets a set of new 'Safety Shield' accident-avoidance technologies. Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW)--each active-safety features intended to warn the driver of potential hazards--have been added to Murano LE Platinum Edition models and SL models with the Navigation Package.

Model Strengths

  • Car-like ride and handling
  • smooth, responsive powertrain
  • stylish cabin appointments
  • good seating position
  • easy to get in and out
  • cargo versatility
  • long, luxury-caliber feature list
  • new active-safety options

Model Review

The 2013 Murano is offered in four different trims: S, SV, SL and LE. Each of them can be had with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, but otherwise the powertrain is the same: a 260-horsepower, 3.5L double-overhead-cam V6, delivering power through a continuously variable automatic transmission.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
