Just leased the S version with AWD. As it is built on the Sentra chassis and I previously owned a 2007 Sentra, it improves tremendously on that cars driving feel and performance. Steering feel is MUCH better. CVT takes some getting used to but overall I like it in the early going
Car like handling and acceleration married to low-demand utility capabilities and fuel economy; very comfortable seats and arms support for driver; nice overall look but too similar to Murano; even "S" trim level should satisfy needs of most drivers.
Visor mirrors needed in the S trim level; needs openable rear window; needs rear privacy screen in S trim; outside temperature display on dash like in base level Sentra; rear armrest
