Are you looking for a new crossover SUV in the Wallingford, CT area? If so, we have the 2019 Nissan Murano in stock and ready to be test-driven. With its lightweight design, the Murano can comfortably negate the streets of busy Connecticut cities or take on any of its highways with its responsive CVT transmission. If this sounds like something you'd like to drive, read on to learn more about this SUV.


The Nissan Murano's front fascia has been redesigned for the model year. This was done in order to accompany the new standard LED headlights. There are LED signature daytime running lights included. Also, there are LED taillights and fog lights equipped on every trim level. Other standard exterior features include chrome door handles, silver roof rails, power side mirrors with heating and integrated turn signals, privacy glass in the rear, and a motion-activated liftgate.


If performance is a big deal for you, know that the Murano is a solid SUV. It can get from 0 to 60 mph in a respectable 7.5 seconds, and the CVT paired with the V6 provides really smooth transitions between gears. The Murano is fully capable of making a panic stop in about 123 feet, which puts it right up there with some serious competitors in its class. Although you won't get much road feel, this SUV is incredibly lightweight and easy to wind through Connecticut city streets. Overall, many drivers should enjoy the quick response from the gas pedal and the smooth ride quality.


On the inside, this Nissan gives you a lot of high-quality materials. It has the look of a luxury vehicle without the price tag. The contrast double stitching is particularly chic, and the seats are well bolstered for comfort. It is also a spacious interior with plenty of room for heads and feet. The standard dual zone climate control system has physical knobs that are clearly labeled and easy to use. You also get a good air flow throughout the vehicle, so those chilly Wallingford winter nights and steamy summer days are much more bearable.


Technology is one of the Murano's highlights. Standard tech on this SUV includes an 8-inch touchscreen placed front and center on the dash. Opting for the upgraded Bose sound system gives you an impressive 11-speaker set-up. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay both come equipped and make accessing your smartphone's apps quite simple. Linking them up with Bluetooth is also very easy and creates a great hands-free system. You also get three 12-volt power outlets and two USB ports.


Safety is, of course, a primary concern for Nissan. That's why the new Nissan Murano is loaded with features like forward collision warning. You can get more driver aids as you move up the trim level ladder. Those options include blind spot monitoring, a surround view camera, and adaptive cruise control.
