Nissan announced that the all-new Murano, including the hybrid version (earlier post), is officially available for sale from its joint venture in China, Dongfeng Nissan Passenger vehicle company (DFL-PV). As a key market in Nissan’s global business, China is the first market to introduce the hybrid version of Murano.
The new Murano hybrid is equipped with the new supercharged QR25DER gasoline engine and an electric motor with a compact lithium-ion battery. With the Nissan Intelligent Dual Clutch System and Xtronic transmission, it delivers driving performance equivalent to the V6-3.5L gasoline engine, as well as superior fuel economy similar to the 2.0L gasoline engine.
Furthermore, the hybrid version of Murano offers enhanced driving experience in both city and rural contexts thanks to the ALL MODE 4x4-i drive system.
The all-new Murano has a drag coefficient of 0.31—one of the lowest in class.
Priced from RMB 238,800 to 379,800 (approximately US$38,208 to 60,768), the Murano strengthens Nissan’s SUV lineup for the Chinese market and responds to the demand for SUVs from Chinese consumers. Murano also is an important product in DFL-PV's “Young Nissan” strategy to reach a significant and growing part of the market in China.
Murano offers advanced safety technologies, including Moving Objective Detection (MOD) and Around View Monitor (AVM) for real-time monitoring of road conditions.
A range of driving aid features is also offered to further enhance driving safety, such as Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Emergency Assist for Pedal Misapplication (EAPM), Driver Alert System (DAS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Warning BSW and Cross Traffic Alert (CTA).
