2014 Nissan Murano Styling

9.0
On Styling
The Nissan Murano is either a clean break with crossover convention, or a cohesively styled family device of its own stripe--either way, the Murano retains its handsome looks. Underneath the tall ride and bulbous bits, it's a station wagon, but it's a voluptuous take on the theme.

Carrying forward unchanged visually for the 2014 model year, the Murano carries itself assertively, with crisp details and a high-shouldered stance.

Our only real issue with the exterior is the chrome-laden, grinning grille that came with the 2009 redesign. New lamps a few years ago took some of the emphasis off the grille, but it remains a sore point of an otherwise sophisticated look.

The 2014 Murano wears an upscale, modern look, well-put-together inside and out.

Inside the Murano's cabin, the details mesh convincingly, though rounded, bulbous shapes are taken close to excess. A two-tiered instrument panel presents a smooth and curvaceous look, and the overall look and feel is as much budget-Infiniti as it is Maxima-esque.

The center stack arrangement is stylish and logical, with the nav system (or trip-computer screen) up top, and audio and climate controls below.
