The 2010 Nissan Murano is one of the new crossovers that most all of the manufacturers are making nowadays. The Nissan Murano cars are considered a compact SUV, but the spaciousness of the inside is unparalleled by any other compact SUV on the market today. This new Murano is largely unchanged following its redesign for the 2009 model year. This midsize SUV seats 5 and is based on Nissan’s “D” platform, which is shared with the midsize Altima sedan.

The 2010 Nissan Murano is available in a choice of front-wheel drive or with an Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system and in a choice of three trim levels. A new Nissan Murano LE FWD model is added to the lineup, while all models include new standard equipment and features. While the Murano is very satisfying in terms of styling and performance, it’s a little disappointing for space and utility.
