2015 Nissan Murano: Pleasant Suburban Shuttle Keeps It Real
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on October 12, 2015
It's a good thing Nissan doesn't use me in its promotional spots. Otherwise you'd get videos of "Brent Takes His Family to Target" and "Brent Drives to the Gym While Listening to NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" instead of promos full of considerably better-looking young couples going to clubs.
But hey, I'm just keeping it real. And truth be told, the 2015 Nissan Murano is pretty good for my bland, domesticated life.
I've tried coming up with one adjective to describe our Murano and the best I've got is "pleasant." This may seem like faint praise, but this is a crossover SUV/wagon we're talking about. Excitement is not in the design vocabulary. Yet the Murano is comfortable and easy to drive. Its V6 provides quick acceleration when I need it and looks suitably classy parked in my driveway. It's not a truly prestigious luxury vehicle, but nor is it just affordable bargain transportation.
I like driving our Murano. It's the middle ground for the middle class.
