2015 Nissan Murano: Unique Design That Works
March 19, 2015
When I first saw the center armrest in our 2015 Nissan Murano I was suspicious. Cutting out the center section for the sake of design seemed like a bad idea. Turns out, my right elbow had nothing to fear.
After driving the Murano numerous times over several weeks, I never once missed the displaced cushioning. Turns out all I really need is the outside section anyway. And every once in a while I went ahead and just rested my whole arm in the channel down the middle.
I heard a Nissan designer describe the idea behind the design. He said something about it looking like the edge of two tables next to each other in a restaurant, or some other such weirdness. I'm not sure that's what I see, but it doesn't matter. As long as it's functional that's fine by me and in this case it's just fine.
