Following an extensive redesign in 2009, the Nissan Murano continues to offer a lot of performance and a variety of amenities in a crossover SUV.
The Murano is offered in three trim levels--S, SL and LE, All of which are available in either front- or all-wheel drive, and all are powered by Nissan's ubiquitous and exceptional 24-valve 3.5L V6, which puts out 265 horsepower and 248 ft-lbs of torque. All models make use of the company's second-generation continuously variable transmission (CVT). A limited-slip differential is optional on FWD models and standard on AWD models.
All 2010 Murano models feature a 60/40 split fold-flat rear seat, dual power mirrors, UV-reducing glass, push-button ignition, electroluminescent gauges, dual-zone automatic climate control, one-touch power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, tilt/telescopic steering wheel with cruise control, three handy 12-volt outlets and a 6-disc in-dash AM/FM stereo with MP3 capability.
The SL adds fog lights, rear privacy glass, an 8-way power driver's seat, power return rear seatbacks and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.

Following a major redesign in 2009, the Murano returns for 2010 with relatively minor updates. A Murano LE FWD model has been added to the lineup, and privacy glass is now available on the S and standard across the rest of the line. Intelligent Key is now standard on the S and SL models, and a security system is now standard on the SL. A dual-panel moonroof is now standard on the LE, and roofrails have been added to the SL.
The 2010 Murano sits in a crowded crossover SUV segment, but it has no shortage of features that set it apart. The 2009 redesign was an effective evolution of the car's popular look, and Nissan's 3.5L V6 is widely regarded as one of the best powerplants in the automotive world. Coupled with the chassis it shares with the Altima, the Murano's car-like reflexes, ample power, creature comforts and spacious interior make it the ideal candidate for moving people and cargo in a comfortable, sporty, entertaining manner.
