Get your 2016 Nissan Murano for $30,560
The 2016 Nissan Murano, on sale now, starts at $30,560 for the S front-wheel drive trim. That’s a $115 bump from last year. Going all-wheel drive and Platinum trim will set you back $41,600, including destination.
The third-generation Murano debuted last year, so there isn’t much change in equipment or power for 2016. A 3.5-liter V6 pulls the car along with 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. The Murano still uses the VQ engine, which will be replaced by the new and more powerful VR series of engines in the coming years. Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission, better than most, will send power to the front or all four wheels. Mileage is somehow the same in both versions, according to Nissan at 21 mpg city, 28 highway and 24 combined.
Available interior features include NissanConnect with navigation, an 8-inch color display, Nissan’s Around View Monitor, power driver’s seat, satellite radio, keyless entry, iPod interface, an 11-speaker premium audio system, and Bluetooth. The Technology Package is offered on the SL and Platinum trims, navigation is available on all trims while the Premium Package on the SV and higher.
As for cargo space, the Murano offers about 32 cubic feet with the second row up, 67 cubic feet with it down. The tow rating is a modest 1,500 pounds.
The Murano is full of safety features including blind spot warning, forward collision warning, forward emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert and more.
