In the area of safety technology, Nissan pursues innovation as part of its "Safety Shield" concept, an advanced, proactive approach to safety issues based on the idea that cars should help protect people.
This approach provides various measures to help the driver and passengers better avoid dangers in ways that are optimized to each of a wide range of circumstances that the vehicle may be in, from "risk has not yet appeared" to "post crash."
Sporty stability - the VQ engine Nissan's advanced VQ35DE V6 engine provides quick response, smooth acceleration and an abundance of torque and power for a truly balanced ride. A greater operating range for the variable valve control system provides optimal control of the twin power valves to yield more power at high speeds and more torque at medium and low speeds. Murano responds linearly to your foot on the pedal for smooth, powerful acceleration.
In mud, rain or snow, Murano's ALL-MODE 4×4-i system offers maximum traction and instant response, with up to 50% torque transfer to the rear wheels. ALL-MODE 4×4-i analyzes the terrain as you drive, distributing precisely the right amount of torque to the front and rear wheels.
It's superbly fuel efficient, seamless shifting and has an incredibly smooth ride. The Nissan's XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) delivers consistently efficient gear shifting, smooth, effortless acceleration and outstanding fuel economy. Its adaptive shift control automatically selects the optimal gear for the driving conditions.
With confidence behind the wheel, it's performance you can trust, even at high speeds. Murano's rigid and lightweight platform has been designed to deliver a quiet, stress-free ride, offering comfort and sporty performance. And because the rigidity of the top suspension joints has been bolstered, Murano offers stable handling and linear response.
Feel free to chat, listen to music or just think. Murano's structure cuts noise to an absolute minimum. Sounds from below the floor are blocked with noise-absorbent carpeting. And 85 per cent of the rear wheel housing is wrapped in sound absorbent lining to reduce tire noise and splashing sounds in wet weather and more.
