TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

If you've seen the all-new Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet in person, you'll probably agree it's a head-scratcher. In what might well be the world's first all-wheel-drive crossover convertible, the CrossCabriolet is essentially a two-door ragtop version of Nissan's mid-size crossover. The result is a vehicle with some strange proportions, to put it kindly—perhaps exaggerated even further by the huge 21-inch wheels.

Just as in the rest of the Murano lineup, power is provided by Nissan's familiar 3.5-liter V-6 engine, making 265 horsepower and paired with the Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). All wheel-drive completes the package for a soft-top convertible that's also confident in snow and sleet.

Its feature set is extensive and complete, though; heated seats, a heated steering wheel, Bluetooth, a hard-drive-based nav system, and HID bi-xenon headlamps are all included on the roster.

The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is priced at a rather steep $46,390. For those who're keeping tabs, that's about the same as a base BMW 3-Series Convertible or Infiniti G37 Convertible, or Lexus IS 350C, and considerably more than a Volkswagen Eos or Volvo C70.

Due to supply issues related to the the earthquake and resulting tsunami that devastated some regions of Japan in March, 2011, initial deliveries of the Cross Cabriolet have been slowed. We haven't yet driven the CrossCabriolet yet, either, but several other review sources that have found the CrossCabriolet to be no more than a cruiser--comfortable and well-appointed for rolling along, top-down, but not at all a sporty vehicle.

In the meantime, the 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet does share its powertrain and a number of features with its crossover namesake, so be sure to read our full review of the Nissan Murano.
