2012 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Exterior

2012 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Overview

Vehicle Overview
The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is a first: a convertible crossover that has four seats, including a roomy backseat. Though it's based on the midsize Murano, the CrossCabriolet's starting price of roughly $47,000 exceeds that of any Murano hardtop. The CrossCabriolet has no direct competitors, though some might argue it's in the same family as the Jeep Wrangler — a four-wheel-drive truck with a removable soft-top.

New for 2012
The navigation system is now offered as a standalone option, but otherwise there are no significant changes for 2012.

The CrossCabriolet has the same overall length and width as the Murano, and although it's almost an inch lower at the roofline, it can't help but look like the largest convertible you've ever seen. The door count is reduced to two, and the B-pillars are gone. The powered soft-top has a skylight above the backseat, letting light in even when the top's up. Exterior features include:
Top in tan or black

Standard Features: 20-inch wheels with all-season tires, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, front fog lights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors

The CrossCabriolet is based on the Murano's highest trim level, the LE, so it has leather seats with front seat heaters and eight-way power adjustment for the driver. Rocker switches atop the front-seat backrests move them forward to ease backseat entry.

Although the CrossCabriolet is based on a crossover, its trunk is relatively small. It measures 12.3 cubic feet, which is comparable to a subcompact or compact sedan. When the top is down, the trunk volume drops to 7.6 cubic feet. Interior features include:
  • Standard: keyless access and ignition, heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control
  • Available: navigation system, backup camera and Bluetooth connectivity, Bose stereo with a 9.3-gigabyte hard drive, iPod interface and satellite radio
Under the Hood

Standard safety features include: side-impact airbags are incorporated into the front seats for torso protection; side curtain airbags deploy from the doors to provide head protection, though not for the rear seats; four-wheel antilock disc brakes; electronic stability system; for rollover protection, active roll bars remain out of sight behind the backseat and deploy only if the car tips
