Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet
We've tested a number of category-bending cars, but the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is one of the weirdest vehicles to pass though the Car Tech garage. Taking a largish SUV and chopping the top seems like a fool's errand, but at least one reader loved it enough to give the CrossCab a 5-star rating.
- Overall score: 6.5 (3.0 stars)

The good: The gearless nature of the continuously variable transmission gives the 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet smooth acceleration, and a soft suspension contributes to the comfortable ride. All-wheel drive includes a differential lock. The navigation system features 3D buildings and traffic data.
The bad: The Murano CrossCabriolet looks like a coupe on a junk food diet. Its top comes down with a disconcerting crash. Lacking modern efficiency technology, its engine achieves mediocre fuel economy.
The bottom line: A convertible SUV, the 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet carves out its own niche, but it's an odd-looking design with some serious problems. Its technology is Nissan-standard, very good in the cabin, but becoming dated under the hood.
