The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is well-known in car enthusiast circles for being the rather unusual 2-door convertible version of the Nissan Murano crossover. SUV convertibles are rare, and this one was especially weird, with a raised body and typical Murano styling, except with fewer doors. It’s a surprise.
What wasn’t a surprise was the CrossCabriolet’s poor sales: priced at a figure approaching $50,000, it wasn’t especially successful, and Nissan pulled the plug on the whole thing after just a few model years. These days, it’s only available on the used market, and values are starting to come down. Way down.
This Murano CrossCabriolet is the cheapest one for sale on Autotrader, as it’s listed for a mere $9,111 — making it the only CrossCabriolet offered for under $10,000. That figure transforms this SU-vertible from an overpriced convertible into something quite a bit more desirable, as this is still merely an 8-year-old Nissan with all-wheel drive, four seats and a power convertible top — things you rarely find together for under 10 grand. This one is also finished in black with a black interior, which is the most subtle and reasonable color combination.
If you’re interested, this Murano CrossCabriolet is offered by Maxway Motors in Sleepy Hollow, Illinois, west of Chicago, with 79,500 miles. You’ll surely be the only person on your block who has one.
