2019 Nissan Murano
Now in its third generation, the Nissan Murano has maintained its design since 2015, with minimal changes. However, in 2019, the popular crossover comes back with a number of changes, most of which are related to styling, but with some updates to technology and safety features as well. The trim levels offered are the S, SV, SL, and Platinum with dark wood-tone interior trim.
New Design Changes for Murano
As we stated, the appearance changes for ’19 are mostly subtle. The most noticeable will be the lighting, an altered grille and bumper, some new wheel designs, and bolder colors added to the palette: Mocha Almond (brown), Sunset Drift (orange), and Deep Blue.
The real design changes for the 2019 Murano are found in the interior. The Platinum trim offers semi-aniline leather seats with unique diamond-pattern inserts. Mid-tier trims like the SV and SL receive metallic or light faux-wood cabin accents.
The most recent tech updates to the 2019 Murano begin with the driver-assist features provided through Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 Bundle. This active safety feature provides both forward and reverse automatic braking, pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, and blind-spot monitoring. This comes as a standard package for the Murano Platinum and is optional for the SL trim.
More device-oriented updates include improved smartphone connectivity for Apple and Android devices, as well as Google Assistant integration. Murano occupants will also enjoy the use of USB-C ports, which provide faster smartphone charging.
2019 Nissan Murano Performance
One thing remains the same, and that is the driving performance. The Murano in 2019 still sports the 260-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engine across all trims and comes in either all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, both achieving respectable fuel economy. The Murano is very reliable and economical commuter crossover vehicle, especially for those who are in need of an all-wheel drive option in snowy New England.
