The popular mid-size crossover has been refreshed recently, so we don’t expect to see more important changes for the 2020 Nissan Murano. The current generation has been around since 2015 and, considering the model’s usual production cycle, it should stay in production for a couple of more years. Most likely, we won’t see more important changes before the redesign. The upcoming model could receive a couple of novelties in terms of standard equipment, but the core will remain the same. After all, there is no need for modifications at the moment.
Besides, refreshed styling, this model also offers plenty of good things, starting from a comfortable and opulent cabin, a long list of standard features, lots of tech goodies and more. Also, there is a quite capable V6 engine, so we could say that the 2020 Nissan Murano will have all the things that are needed to compete successfully on the market.
2020 Nissan Murano Redesign
The Murano is pretty much a typical mid-size crossover. It comes with pretty common dimensions and, unlike most models in the class, it features just two rows of seats. Of course, it rides on the company’s well-known D platform and shares a lot with the bigger Pathfinder. As we already mentioned, the crossover has been refreshed recently. We saw a fine number of novelties and most of them were in terms of aesthetics. This facelift has brought pretty mild visual updates, mostly at the front. You can notice some tweaks on the grille, as well as a slightly reshaped bumper, which comes with a few new lines, new fog lights and air-intakes etc. Also, there is a new LED lighting all around the vehicle etc. Therefore, the best we could see from the 2020 Nissan Murano is a couple of new colors and similar things.
When it comes to the interior design, the Murano definitely shines. This crossover features one of the nicest cabins in the class. Hi-quality materials and amazing final touch are the things you can count on with this model. Also, the seats are amazing. They are both massive and offer amazing comfort. This refers to both rows of seats. As we already mentioned, this is a two-row crossover, so you can count on a pretty generous amount of legroom. Same goes for the cargo capacity, which is quite decent. You can count on about 33 cubic feet behind rear seats, while the overall capacity goes close to 70 cubic feet, which is great for a two-row crossover.
The 2020 Nissan Murano is expected to continue with four familiar trim levels on the offer. Base models wear the “S” badge and already feature a quite decent number of standard features. You can count on things like 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, LED running lights etc. On the inside, things like dual-zone climate control, 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system are standard as well.
The SV comes with a nice amount of upgrades. Some of the highlights are remote engine start, power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as a premium audio system, adaptive cruise control, 360-degree camera etc.
With the SL model, you can get a power panoramic sunroof, as well as a fine number of driver aids. Some of them are automatic high beams, traffic sign recognition, forward pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist.
Finally, there is the Platinum trim, which adds a bit of a luxury. Some of the highlights are upgraded leather upholstery, driver memory settings, power-adjustable steering wheel, power folding rear seats and more.
2020 Nissan Murano Engines
Things under the hood are pretty familiar. The 2020 Nissan Murano will continue with a well-known 3.5-liter V6, which in this case delivers around 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. Of course, it comes with a CVT. Such combination ensures a pretty smooth ride, as well as solid acceleration. This crossover needs around 7.5 seconds to reach 60 mph, which is pretty average for the class. The overall driving experience is pretty good, as this model is not just decently fast, but also very quiet at higher speeds and on the highway. Additionally, the fuel economy is pretty good. You can count on about 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which are above average numbers for the class.
2020 Nissan Murano Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Nissan Murano won’t come before the last quarter of the year. Also, the price should remain pretty much the same as for the current model, which starts at around 31.500 dollars.
