The all-new, second generation 2009 Murano elevates that unique position through a "super evolution" of the original design - with a new exterior, interior and enhanced technology. Murano's new premium driving feel results from a combination of a new advanced platform, continued refinement of Murano's standard V6 engine and new, second-generation Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).
The 2009 Murano's new exterior features a wide front end with a dynamic front fascia design, a wide grille with large integrated headlights, strong body side character lines with pronounced 18-inch or 20-inch wheels and tires and a distinctive rear end set off by an expansive rear glass area and LED taillights.
Murano's newly designed interior plays on the "mobile suite" theme, complete with new instrument panel and center stack design, new seat design with available double-stitched leather-appointed seating surfaces, use of premium materials such as leather and aluminum, a variety of storage compartments and ambient lighting.
The 2009 Murano is powered by a revised 265-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 backed by a new advanced Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), with a front-wheel drive or an advanced all-wheel drive drivetrain. Murano also features a new D-platform, as well as new suspension, body structure and state-of-the-art steering for improved ride comfort and precise handling.
Multiple technology features are available on the 2009 Murano, including standard Push Button Ignition and available Intelligent Key, RearView Monitor, integrated iPod connectivity, DVD Mobile Entertainment System with 9-inch screen, 11-speaker Bose audio system and an enhanced touch screen Nissan Navigation system with voice activation XM NavTraffic real-time traffic information (XM subscription required, sold separately) and 9.3GB Music Box Hard Drive.
