2015 Nissan Murano Revealed in the Flesh [20 Photos & Video]

The third generation Nissan Murano crossover has made its online debut, just before it parades its crispy new body to the crowds of this week’s New York Auto Show. Arguably, it’s not as sexy as the Resonance Concept that preceded it at last year’s Detroit Auto Show, but it will do as it comes close enough.

Its design marks a departure from the more softer-shaped previous Murano CUVs with harder lines and more distinct details like Nissan’s new V-Motion front end, boomerang lights and a floating roof treatment.

The interior, on the other hand, looks more familiar with the styling resembling that of the smaller Rogue, but with more chic trims like the lighter color wood accents.

Full details are to announced in New York, but Nissan tells us that available features will include the NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, an 8-inch color display with multi-touch control, and many safety and security items such as the Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) and Forward Emergency Braking.

Power will come from a standard 3.5-liter V6 connected Xtronic transmission driving either the front or all-four wheels.

The new 2015 Murano will go on sale in the States towards the end of this year.
