Nissan's five-passenger crossover is arguably the most stylish entry in the class with an aggressive fascia, swoopy sheetmetal, floating roof appearance and big 20-inch wheels.

Like the exterior, the interior of this Platinum model features a healthy dose of styling flair with a wraparound dash and soft stitched leathers.

The jasper pearlescent interior trim sort of looks like an outdated Formica countertop pattern, but ultimately works.

The NissanConnect infotainment system includes a responsive 8-inch touchscreen, Bose sound system, navigation, Bluetooth and USB ports for both front- and backseat passengers.

If you don't like the Nissan interface, the system is Apple CarPlay capable, but strangely Android Auto isn't available.

The Murano's safety feature list is long with blind-spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, around-view monitor, intelligent cruise control, forward collision warning and forward emergency braking all available.

All Muranos are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 making 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque.

When mated to a continuously variable transmission, all-wheel-drive models return 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

When equipped with the moonroof, the Murano features 31.1 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats.
