The Murano was starting to lose on sale, all until Nissan decided to refresh the car back in 2014 as a 2015 model. The new car is not only all new in terms of design, but it also features a new engine as well as a better equipped interior. The 2016 Nissan Murano is set to be a small update of that car which will continue to offer the same design as before but Nissan said it will now receive a slightly different equipment level as well as they are going to work on the car’s transmission and running gear in order to make it even better to drive than before.
2016 Nissan Murano price
Just like with the previous model, it will continue to be just a 5-seats vehicle, so it will not be for those with big families but it will be enough for an average family mostly because there is plenty of room on the back seats and there is more luggage space than on its competitors. Price wise, the new 2016 Nissan Murano will be offered for roughly the same amount as before. That means that the price will start at $30,000 and go up to around $40,000 which is still a great price for a car this size.
New Nissan Murano 2016 review
The most impressive thing about the new Nissan Murano 2016 is not its engine or the way it handles but its design which is like nothing else in its class. The car looks fresh with European influences both in the front and at the back. It features a similar grille design to the Maxima and the lower part of the car is now wrapped in black soft plastic which is great for protection. Standard features include LED daytime running lights, Xenon headlights, 18 inch alloy wheels and even privacy glass.
The interior is just as impressive and the 2016 model should add a few new features such as a new navigation and infotainment unit that will be compatible with Android Auto as well as upgraded front seats that are electrically adjustable as standard.
2016 Nissan Murano specs, mpg
Under the hood of the new Nissan Murano 2016 won’t be no changes from the previous model with the exception of its CVT transmission which should be further improved with a new software that should improve fuel consumption slightly. The engine on the other hand will be the same naturally aspirated 3.5 liter V6 which is good for 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, enough to make the 2016 Nissan Murano feel quite fast despite its average amount of power. Its fuel consumption will slightly improve to around 25 MPG on average which also happens to be the best number in its class. All of these should make for a more desirable car and considering it already is the second best selling car in its class, first place is closer than ever.
