Since its redesign into its 3rd generation in 2015, the Nissan Murano has been a popular choice among drivers with families and those who are looking for some extra space that a 4-door sedan can’t provide because of its combination of safety and updated feature lineup.
And you can get even more for your money if you opt for the 2018 Nissan Murano. You have a number of choices for this crossover, including the Murano S, Murano SV, Murano SL and Murano Platinum trims, along with the Midnight Edition that returns for 2018.
In addition to returning tech like the 3.5L V6 with Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), optional Intuitive AWD (All-Wheel Drive), 7 airbags and a RearView Monitor, there are some all-new amenities and some others that are more readily available to you.
What’s New For the 2018 Nissan Murano?
Updated Standard Features
There are some newly added amenities that can be found in every 2018 Nissan Murano at our dealership serving White Plains NY. First, you’ll be impressed by the improved accessibility and storage capability of the center console since the design has been revised to be even more functional than before.
Two technologies work together to keep you safe on the road: Automatic Emergency Braking & Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. They help prevent accidents by letting you know when your approaching the vehicle ahead of you too fast and will even assist with slowing down the vehicle to a possible stop.
Finally, NissanConnect now comes standard to give you access to your favorite 3rd-party apps right on the 8.0” color touchscreen display. Also offered with this infotainment system are Apple CarPlay & Android Auto for integrating your smartphone and a navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic & Travel Link so you’ll never get lost again.
