Overview of the new generation of the car "Nissan Murano"
Most recently, the Japanese concern NissanThe new generation of the legendary SUV "Nissan Murano" was presented to the public. In the second generation, the developers were able to implement a new line of engines, a modified chassis with a full drive system. But still wide rolls and a new audio system for 11 speakers slightly spoil the picture of the modern crossover. However, these are trifles in comparison with the excellent design and technical characteristics of the restyling car. So, let's take a closer look at the new Nissan Murano.
Design novelties in comparison with its predecessorbecame more athletic. Having saved several native body lines, Nissan Murano in 2013 borrowed some details from another crossover - Nissan Kashkay. Despite the small plagiarism, the designers managed to create an original and quite attractive SUV.The second generation of the crossover has acquired a newlighting equipment in front and behind, a modern bumper, smoothly turning into the front fenders, round fog lights, as well as many other small things. In general, if we compare the novelty with the predecessor, which was issued five years ago, the Nissan Murano evolved from a purely sports car to a more presentable business car.
The interior has also changed andbecame even more luxurious. This is evidenced by aluminum inserts in the cabin, an updated dashboard, as well as a modified central console, which now boasts the presence of multifunction control buttons. As for upholstery materials, the manufacturer decided to slightly extend the color range. Now, in different trim levels, the buyer can purchase a car with expensive leather upholstery in black or beige.
Nissan Murano: engine performance
As you know, this model of the Japanese crossoverwas originally equipped with a single gasoline engine. This time the manufacturer decided not to experiment with the technical specifications and simply increased the power and volume of the motor. So, in the new generation of the car, engineers were able to significantly reduce the coefficient of friction of moving parts of the engine, thereby reducing the noise level. The whole engine block design was updated, which allowed the developers to increase the engine power by 18 horsepower. The torque thus also increased, and now this figure is 334 instead of the previous 318 Nm. Thus, the total capacity of the renewed engine on the Nissan Murano increased to 252 horsepower with a working volume of 3.5 liters.
The novelty will be supplied to the Russian market inseveral bundles, the cheapest of which will cost the buyers 1 million 585 thousand rubles. This is quite an adequate cost, especially since the Japanese managed to bring the novelty as close as possible to a business-class car. "Nissan Murano" will serve as an excellent alternative to the German off-roader "BMW X5", which costs 3 million rubles.
