2014 Nissan Murano Powertrain: There's just one way to go here, namely a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine that produces 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Nissan's so-called intuitive all-wheel drive system comes standard; it recognizes the difference between cruising and cornering, or dry and wet roads, and responds accordingly.
Cargo Capacity: With the rear seats up, the 2014 Nissan Murano's trunk can hold 895 litres of cargo. Fold them down, and you'll wind up with 1,812 litres.
Safety: The Murano comes with six airbags, ABS brakes, brake assist, electronic brake force distribution, as well as stability and traction control. The top-of-the-line Platinum model adds blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning systems to boost safety.
