One of the first midsize crossover SUVs, the Murano is still going strong fifteen years in. With its third production cycle, which began in 2015, Nissan solidified its position as the vehicle to beat in this highly competitive segment. And the 2017 model year upholds the Murano’s dominance, which is chiefly due to its upscale cabin, robust technology, remarkable fuel economy, excellent safety ratings, and overall comfortability. There are four trims available on the 2017 Murano, one of which is the SL. As one of the upper-level variants, the SL is a great choice for you if you want to ramp it up on the luxury and safety features.
The 2017 Nissan Murano SL is a two-row vehicle that seats up to five people. Total interior volume is measured at up to 140.2 cubic feet (without the optional power moonroof). Front seating consists of an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support and a 4-way power-adjustable front passenger seat; both seats have heating capability. The rear seatback has a 60/40 split-folding design that consequently enables you to expand the trunk space into the seating area. All seats are leather-trimmed, and the entire cabin is accentuated with Jasper Pearlescent or Brushed Silver-tone trim. For entertainment, the Murano SL has an 11-speaker Bose® Premium Audio System, which includes an AM/FM radio tuner, a single-disc CD player that has MP3 and WMA playback capability, HD Radio®, a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® satellite radio, illuminated controls mounted on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Bluetooth® for streaming audio (in addition to making hands-free phone calls). Also standard inside the vehicle are cruise control, a smart key system with push-button engine ignition, remote vehicle start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a navigation system that is accompanied by an 8-inch color touchscreen, voice recognition for navigation and audio functions, hands-free text messaging ability, HomeLink® for remote-controlling garage doors, auto dimming on the rearview mirror, positioning memory for the driver’s seat and the outside mirrors, and the Around View® camera for driving monitoring on all angles (instead of just the rear). A 7-inch widescreen color screen called Advanced Drive-Assist® Display sits in the middle of the gauge cluster to provide vital vehicle information.
Riding on 18-inch machine-finished aluminum wheels, the 2017 Murano SL has LED headlights that automatically switch on or off depending on the amount of outdoor sunlight. Below the headlights are a pair of fog lights for more penetrating illumination when needed. On top of the vehicle are a rack of silver rails for additional cargo carrying capacity, and the power outside mirrors at the sides come with heating capability and turn-signal indicators. The taillights, like the lights at the front, have LED bulbs to last longer than regular halogen ones. And with the power liftgate, you do not need a key to open the trunk.
Fortified by stabilizer bars, the SL’s four-wheel independent suspension—consisting of a front MacPherson strut design and a rear multi-link design—is in place to absorb turbulence from uneven driving surfaces. And vehicle speed-sensitive power steering ensure efficient handling, particularly when cornering or making turns.
Powering the 2017 Nissan Murano SL is the VQ35DE, which is a 3.5-liter, 24-value V6 engine that generates 260 horsepower at 260 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 240 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 RPM. Hooked to the engine is the Xtronic CVT®, a continuously variable transmission that eschews gear shifting for a smoother driving experience that ultimately improves fuel economy. Front-wheel drive is standard, although you have the choice of getting the Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system instead for improved traction, which is especially crucial for less-than-favorable road and weather conditions. With its drivetrain, the SL can tow up to 1,500 lbs.
The airbag system on the 2017 SL consists of dual front impact airbags that face the driver and front passenger, an airbag for the driver’s knees, a pair of front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and two front and two rear side curtain airbags for head protection of all occupants. Other traditional safety features on the SL include vehicle dynamic control for keeping you on the intended path of driving, traction control to stave off skidding, and hill start assist to prevent you from rolling backward when starting to drive from a parked position on a hill. Disc brakes are on all four wheels for shortening stopping distances, and they come with electronic brake-force distribution for proper allocation of stopping force, brake assist to generate more stopping power if needed, and an anti-lock braking system to prevent the wheels from locking up when applying the brakes. The SL has a host of advanced safety features, which consist of driver attention alert, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and moving object detection.
