2017 Nissan Murano Platinum – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design

This car is definitely a car that is built to stand out. The roof is styled to look like a “floating roof” and adds to the flow of the car. Nissan has described the front of the car as “V-Motion”, with the design of the front moving in a v-shape. The tail lights wrap around the back end of the car creating a smooth body of the car.


The overall feel of the car is very smooth and curved. The interior is no exception. All of the lines of the front of the car are curved, moving in similar directions. The seats are specifically designed for adults, so all of the seats are roomy and comfortable. There is an optional sunroof that can really open up the interior of the car. There is plenty of trunk space with all of the seats up, and even more with the back seats laid flat.
