Expert Quotes:

A roof-mounted DVD entertainment system is optional on the SL with the Technology package
Edmunds

The navigation system is easy to use, and most audio and climate functions are separate.
Consumer Guide

Without the navigation package, the interface for the audio system is complicated and difficult to adjust unless it has the driver's full attention.
CNET

One more power plug for rear passengers' accessories would've been nice.
Autoblog

Some cool features are available, like a 9.3GB Music Box hard drive, Bluetooth, 11-speaker Bose system, power-up (manual flip-down) rear seat, rearview monitor, iPod interface, and nav with XM NavTraffic.

A new value-packed SV trim joins the Murano lineup for 2011; the SV trims fit between basic S and mid-level SL trims in the lineup, while the luxurious LE trim still still tops off the range.

Most of the Murano models are available with front- or all-wheel drive, while the top-of-the-line LE is AWD-only. The base 2011 Nissan Murano S comes with a cloth interior and 18-inch alloy wheels but is well equipped, with cruise control, the Intelligent Key entry and starting system, dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents, and a six-speaker sound system with six-disc changer and auxiliary input.

The new SV model adds to the S a dual-panel moonroof, seven-inch color monitor and backup camera, power driver's seat, automatic headlamps, Bluetooth, and USB and iPod connectivity, along with satellite radio. SL models still add a reclining rear seatback with power return, plus leather trim and steering-wheel audio controls, as well as fog lamps.

The top LE model packs on the most desirable features like flashy 20-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, a power liftgate, keyless start, wood trim, and a garage door opener. It also gets a Bose audio system with nine speakers, XM Satellite Radio, and dual subwoofers, plus a Bluetooth hands-free interface, which is optional on a Technology Package in other models. Other top options include a a rear DVD entertainment system, and a navigation system, including Music Box hard-drive storage.

Other 2011 model year enhancements for the Murano include a change of instrument panel illumination from orange to white, the addition of an auto dimming rearview mirror with compass and HomeLink Universal Transceiver to Murano SL. This model also comes available with a heated steering wheel, a Bose stereo with nine speakers and a dual subwoofer. Finally, the Murano LE comes with new center stack colors and new wood grain trim. Nissan has also added a new Graphite Blue color option to the range.

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.
