What makes this one of the most reliable sport utility vehicles of 2021? Let us explain.
Nissan Murano® Safety Features (Our Favorites)
The 2021 Nissan Murano® receives an overall 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA. This is owing in part to its outstanding safety features. There are many safety features, but two of our favorites are:
Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) Technology
Do you ever find yourself wondering what the speed limit is while driving? The signs can be easy to miss, and speed limits can change frequently in towns and cities. With Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), a small camera located by the rearview mirror identifies speed limit signs and displays this data on the information panel.
The camera can also work in tandem with the vehicle’s navigation system to give you the most accurate reading.
Intelligent Around View® Monitor
The Intelligent Around View® monitor is part of the Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies. It provides a virtual bird’s-eye view of your vehicle. The Nissan Murano® is equipped with 4 cameras: one in front, one under each side-view mirror, and one in back. This enables you to park with ease, even in tight spaces.
The monitor offers a variety of split-screen close-ups, so you can choose to view from the front, rear and curbside. It also will give you an on-screen warning if it senses a collision threat.
What makes the Nissan Murano® a good family car?
Are you looking for a larger vehicle for your growing family? The Nissan Murano® is an excellent choice! In addition to being top-rated for safety, there are a number of features that make this vehicle a great option to consider.
- As parents, your hands are always full. This can make navigating the rear hatch a little difficult. But with the Motion Activated Liftgate, simply kick your foot under the rear bumper area, and the hatch will open automatically!
- This vehicle has a roomy cargo area (31.1 inches), perfect for strollers, backpacks, and sporting gear. The Platinum edition also comes with an all-weather mat, so you needn’t worry about dirt.
- The rear seats provide ample legroom (38.7 inches). Even with the front seats positioned far back, there is plenty of room for car seats and growing children. The seats are also heated, making this vehicle ideal for winter trips and activities.
- For those long car rides, the rear seats are equipped with cupholders, storage pockets, and USB/USB-C ports.
- The front console has deep storage. This makes storing essentials simple with easy access for Mom & Dad.
