ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • Slight styling changes and interior materials improvments
  • Extra high-tech safety features
  • On sale this December

The 2019 Nissan Murano was just shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show and includes a number of features and style updates. None are particularly significant and it may be tough to tell them apart visually, so let's dig a little deeper to show you what's new for 2019.

What has changed outside?

The Murano maintains its same general look but some of the details have changed. Its "V-motion" grille is more pronounced with a notable surround of black trim in keeping with the all-new Altima's styling. There are also new LED headlights and foglights, while there are new 18- and 20-inch wheel designs. Potential buyers now have three new colors from which to choose: Deep Blue Pearl, Mocha Almond Pearl and the exceedingly fancy sounding Sunset Drift Chromaflair.

What's new inside?

The biggest changes can really only be appreciated in the upper-most Platinum trim level. The leather upholstery is higher-quality semi-aniline grade, while the seats, door armrests and center console feature diamond-quilted leather with contrast piping. There's also new dark wood trim in Platinum, while either a light wood or metal trim can be found in the S, SV or SL.

The design remains the same.

What are some new features?

The Murano will continue to come standard with forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, but the number of other active safety features has been expanded within a new package known as Safety Shield 360. Standard on the Platinum and optional on the SL, it enhances automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and adds blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, lane-departure warning, reverse automatic braking and high beam assist. 

The Murano SL trims and higher also get a revised navigation system with improved graphics, internet-based search and upgraded traffic information.

How much and when is it for sale?

The 2019 Nissan Murano will go on sale in December 2018, which means there's a very good chance it'll be cruising into dealers any day now. Pricing was not available at the time of this writing but will eventually be available on our 2019 Murano pricing page.
