Nissan Murano is a five-seat mid-size crossover SUV which will
get your attention with its dramatic exterior styling but will
continue impressing you when you enter inside. Its interior
design is also appealing while you will love its exceptionally

2018 Nissan Murano: Styling
Nissan ‘s designers were very creative for model’s last

contemporary looks. With many details, dynamic body lines, bold
grille, attractive headlights and floating roofline, this
mid-size utility vehicle look like nothing else on the road.
However, in the third year of this generation, this model
should bring some styling changes.
Nissan hasn’t said but the newest reports suggesting similar
modifications as on the new Qashqai. The new 2018 Nissan Murano
should get brand’s latest version of the V-motion grille
combined with refreshed boomerang-themed headlights. The front
