2013 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet vs. Its Competition

2013 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

Still, the CrossCab's priced rather steeply at more than $45,000.

That's far more than a VW Eos or Volvo C70, and it overlaps a base BMW 3-Series convertible.

For that price, you get exclusivity of a Bentley kind, and just as much potential for vitamin D production--not to mention a constant stream of what-the...

There's just one vehicle remotely competitive with Nissan's truly offbeat Murano CrossCabriolet.

The Jeep Wrangler--in long-wheelbase, five-seat Unlimited form--comes in hardtop or soft-top convertible form.

It's less steady and smooth on everyday roads, but retains a good deal of the traditional Jeep off-road ability, and can be optioned up just as expensively as the Murano CrossCabriolet.

Quick Specs
6.8
Looking (and driving) as if it were conceived for parade duty, the 2013 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet puts an offbeat spin on convertibles and crossovers alike.
8.0
Get past the understated look of the 2013 Volkswagen Eos, and you'll find its turbo powertrain, smart handling, and refined, roomy interior to be a delightful combination.
8.2
The 2013 Volvo C70 is neither a serious sports car nor a high-clout cruiser, but it's a comfortable, upscale convertible that feels luxurious without being too ostentatious.
