Considering that the recent update has brought a fine amount of novelties, the 2020 Nissan Murano will probably continue without more important changes. This crossover is definitely one of the most important models for Nissan. It is the second best-selling crossover in the lineup, which is enough to realize why the company puts so much attention on this one.
The current generation is on the market since 2015 and we have seen a refreshed model a couple of days ago. It came with a lot of novelties, especially in terms of aesthetics. So, we don’t expect too much from the 2020 Murano. Most likely, it will continue in the same way, featuring no bigger change in terms of design characteristics. On the other side, more standard features are something we could expect to get. Finally, don’t count on changes under the hood.
2020 Nissan Murano Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, we definitely won’t see more important changes on the 2020 Nissan Murano. The recent update has brought a lot of novelties. Of course, most of them are in terms of aesthetics, since this was primarily a facelift. As you may presume, the focus is on the front end, which gets a pair of new headlights, new grille and much more.
Headlights are particularly interesting in this case. You can notice a new shape, as well as a new LED lighting on the inside. Also, the grille sits a little bit lower in this case. It features a little bit modified V-Motion layout, which spreads to the hood as well and goes all away up to A-pillars. A front bumper also gets a bit of treatment. On the other end, changes aren’t that prominent, though there are some interesting novelties. All in all, enough reasons to expect 2020 Nissan Murano to come without a single change in terms of the exterior design.
2020 Nissan Murano Interior
The cabin of this crossover hasn’t received too many changes for this update. So, there is a chance to see some of them in the 2020 Nissan Murano model. The current interior won’t blow you out in terms of styling, but it still features a pretty high level of quality. While aesthetics might be a dividing point, the quality of materials is unquestionable. Practically, there are no hard plastics on the inside, just soft-touch surfaces.
This isn’t the case with other models in the class and Murano definitely made a step up to the premium class with this cabin design. In terms of the base layout, this crossover features seating capacity for five. Despite being a mid-size crossover, there are two rows of seats, which isn’t that common thing these days. Still, such design brings a lot of benefits in terms of the legroom. Moreover, the cargo area is spacious as well. The overall cargo capacity goes up to 67 cubic feet.
2020 Nissan Murano Tech Features
As we already mentioned, a long list of standard equipment is something that characterizes this crossover. Of course, this includes plenty of tech features as well. The current model is already petty amazing in this aspect, so things could only become better in the 2020 Nissan Murano. In the current model, even the most basic versions are equipped with things like an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, smartphone integration, navigation and much more.
Despite such a long list of tech goodies, most of the controls are physical, which most drivers still find far more convenient. As you may presume, the next year could bring few more tech goodies to the list of standard equipment. Count on primarily on connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging and similar sort of things.
2020 Nissan Murano Engines and Performance
Days when Nissan was famous for its high dose of sportiness are passed. Today’s models put more focus on comfort than driving experience and the Murano also sticks to this. Despite a pretty sporty look, it actually delivers a pretty smooth and comfortable ride.
All models are equipped with a familiar 3.5-liter V6, which for this occasion delivers around 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. It comes in pair with a CVT and delivers quite decent performances. For example, it needs around 7.5 seconds to get to 60 mph, which is a class-average result. Also, sound isolation is pretty good, so you won’t hear too much noise under heavy acceleration. Another strong point is the fuel economy.
The 2020 Nissan Murano will surely continue to be one of the class leaders, with a respectable 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
2020 Nissan Murano Release Date and Price
If we consider that the 2020 Nissan Murano is about to come without bigger changes, the last quarter of next year seems like a perfect time of a year for its arrival. We also don’t expect changes in price, so base models should go around 31.000 dollars.
