What’s New: The curvaceous third-generation Murano is all-new for the 2015 model year.

Pros: The stylish and roomy Murano is available in a front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive configurator in eight trim levels. As always, Nissan has managed to bring another stylish, cutting edge, eye-popping crossover to the marketplace. This five-passenger mainstream people mover brings a sense of style that appeal to both men and to women alike – unlike many of today’s crossovers. . , Nissan has struck a chord again with the crossover segment, again with this design. It just doesn’t look like a station wagon on steroids.

Inside the cabin, the Murano has bee outfitted with the brand’s new zero gravity seats, which we found to be extremely comfortable, offering both living room-like seating and back support.  And the cargo area has been reconfigured this year, offering more usable space whether the rear seat is in use or folded flat.

The Murano is also powered by one engine, a 3.5-liter, six-cylinder, which is more than adequate.  And depending on one's option list, the vehicle can be loaded to the hilt with everything from an electronic blind spot mirror to the brand’s signature moving object detection system, as was the case with the case with the SL model we reviewed.

Nissan has gone so far as to place this crossover in the same league as the Infiniti, offering a number of upscale features. The all-new Platinum trim model offers such standard upscale features as ventilated front seats, memory seats, a power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, rear heated seats, power return rear seats, a heated steering wheel and 20-inch wheels.  Yes, Nissan has managed to push the envelope again with the Murano without sacrificing anything.

Cons: Nissan has a way of over packing their tech packages, not separating such features as the blind spot lane changing system, making it affordable for the mainstream community. This type of packaging forces features on buyers that they may not necessarily want or need.

Also the optional heated front seats only offered two settings. Unfortunately, the low seat setting was too warm -- to keep on for a continuous period.

Lastly, we’re being petty now, since the expectations of vehicles have been raised. The Murano does not use regular gasoline. In a day and time when many engines are using regular fuel, why is Nissan not taking a cue from the market?

Verdict: In the competitive midsize, five passenger crossover segment, Nissan has managed again to offer a standout design in this me-too segment, offering a variety of trims and upscale luxury features too. Buyers who opt for the all-new third generation Murano will not be disappointed.

Competition:  Chevy Equinox; Hyundai Santa Fe; Mazda CX-5; Ford Edge; Kia Sorento; and Toyota Venza
