The five trim levels for the 2023 Murano are S, SV, Midnight Edition, SL, and Platinum. This five-seat crossover has a 3.5-liter V6 engine making 260 hp and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, which forms the powertrain with the latest version of the Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), which Nissan states has been tuned for lower internal friction and 14% wider gear rations for a more natural feel and better fuel economy. On that note, the EPA has officially estimated that all versions of the Murano, regardless of whether they have the standard front-wheel drivetrain or the available all-wheel drive, return 20 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway.
The base Murano, the S, has a good mix of practical and convenient equipment. The highlights are roof rails (black), Nissan Intelligent Key (proximity entry), push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED headlights, two 12-volt power outlets, two USB-A and USB-C ports, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster, a 60/40-split folding rear seatback, and stainless-steel kick plates. The SV adds remote start, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats with power adjustability, LED fog lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The Midnight Edition is equipped similarly to the SV, but with blacked-out exterior elements to help it live up to its name. It also adds illuminated kick plates. The SL likewise starts out with the SV’s feature roster, but it’s upgraded with leather seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats, a chrome grille, a hands-free liftgate, silver roof rails, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, ambient interior lighting, and position memory for the side mirrors and driver’s seat. The Platinum is the choice for those who want a loaded vehicle. It boasts semi-aniline leather seats with diamond-quilted stitching, ventilated front seats, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof (this is optional on the SL), and a smooth leather-wrapped power tilt/telescopic steering wheel with position memory.
As stated above, every 2023 Murano is equipped with Nissan Safety Shield 360, a proprietary suite of the latest driver-assist technologies. All trims have automatic high beams, intelligent driver alertness, intelligent forward collision warning, rear parking sensors, rear automatic braking, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, intelligent lane intervention, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert. Intelligent cruise control and front parking sensors are added to all but the S, and the SL and Platinum also receive a surround-view monitor and traffic sign recognition.
Murano occupants will have an easy time staying connected and informed. The first three trims get the well-appointed base infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), voice recognition, Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, an audio system with six speakers, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The SL and Platinum get an upgraded system with navigation, a Bose stereo system with 11 speakers and two subwoofers, and NissanConnect services powered by SiriusXM.
