"Nissan has a great alternative to the gas-guzzling SUV."4.5 starson by Burton
Pros: Styling is progressive, Tech to the hilt, and 5-star crash ratings.
Cons: Doesn't have an V-8 option like the Infiniti FX
Summary: In this day of age where Cooley rarely seems impressed with anything,(still love ya brother) the Nissan Murano makes great strides to make the MB, BMW, and Lexus buyers to possibly second guess their impending purchase.
As someone who test drove an ML350, an X5, and a RX 350, my purchase decision wasn't difficult.
Having purchased the LE AWD loaded with Nav, Bluetooth, 20" Factory wheels, Dual Moonroof panels, I saved well over $10,000 just to get into a base model of the other manufactures.
Contrary to Brian's review, your display is touchscreen when loaded with the LE AWD with Nav package.
Seriously consider the Murano as a contender in the Crossover/S.U.V. mix when you're looking to narrow your purchase decision.
You will probably be in the same situation as I was. No justification to the extra $15-$20k to have the same level of tech when compared to the Nissan LE AWD.
