The Nissan Murano is a beastly 4x4 that certainly isn’t afraid to stand out from the crowd. It’s like an aircraft carrier surrounded by fishing boats when out on the road, and to describe its presence as commanding would be an understatement. It’s exactly what you’d want from an SUV and certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Available since 2002, there have been several updates over the years that have upgraded design and interior quality. To look at, the Murano is curvy yet imposing and rather ‘in your face’ on the outside, but quite calm and relaxed on the inside. It’s a comfortable place to sit and everything is organised in a sensible manner, although there is some exuberance as you’d expect from a Nissan. It isn’t short on gear, and even basic models are enough to make your eyes widen.
It’s very practical with a lot of room inside and has a boot that can turn into a small cave when the rear seats are down. While it’s not a thoroughbred off-road machine, it’s competent in the rough stuff, but is at its best on tarmac. The ride is comfortable and it handles well for a big car.
With several different diesel or petrol power plants to choose from, there’s scope to be as economical or power hungry as you want. Obvious the likes of the 3.5 litre V6 will be more expensive to run, but the 2.5 litre diesel gives enough performance and incredible economy. You’ll also get Nissan’s high build quality and array of safety features which means reliability won’t be a problem and you can drive confidently at all times. It is an excellent option for families.
With thousands of different used cars for sale right here at Motors.co.uk, managing to bag a bargain on a second hand Nissan Murano is incredibly easy. Paying less is a given thanks to some impressive price discounts, but the quality of what you’ll get is superb. SUVs are known for eating up money like its going out of fashion, so do yourself a favour and buy pre owned to massively lessen the blow.
Plainly then, the Nissan Murano is a big boy and enjoys its oversized status. If you’re looking for a versatile car that’s practical, incredibly spacious and rugged in nature, the Murano should suit you down to the ground. It’s an excellent package that can certainly mix it with the best in a hugely competitive are of the market.
