2015 Nissan Murano Named To Ward's 10 Best Interiors List

Every year, ten vehicles are chosen for inclusion on the WardsAuto World lists for various categories such as interiors, engines, and so forth. This year, the 2015 Nissan Murano makes the 10 Best Interiors list, but Nissan is not new to the accolade.

Out of 42 vehicles evaluated, the Murano made the cut and got on the list. It ranked high in ergonomics, driver information, fit-and-finish, materials quality and more.

"First time I saw the new Murano interior, I was blown away by the pearlescent film that's used to lovely effect on the doors, instrument panel, center console and armrest," said Tom Murphy, executive editor, WardsAuto World. "The rest of the interior is brilliantly executed as well, from the smooth, flowing lines of the instrument panel to the ample cargo hold. Beige interiors often are perceived as boring, but this one is stylish and contemporary while achieving a serenity uncommon among midsize CUVs."

WardsAuto isn't the only one noticing the new Murano. When we drove the 2015 Murano, we were also impressed by its great look both inside and out. So was U.S. News, who named it as the Best 2-Row SUV for the Money. It was also winner of the Driver's Choice Award from Motorweek.

The interior of the 2015 Murano focuses on a "social lounge" concept where a low center console and open interior design offer a big, spacious feel. Zero Gravity seating is now standard as well, in four seating positions, giving a comfortable ride to go along with the deceptively large windows and parnoarmic moonroof.

Every 2015 Murano comes with a standard 260-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 connected to an advanced Xtronic transmission. Fuel economy has increased 20 percent (over the previous generation) for combined mpg and is rated at 21/28/24 mpg city/highway/combined for both front-wheel and all-wheel drive models.
