I went down to Palm Beach, Florida recently to check out the new Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, and absolutely fell in love with it! What a awesome ride!† Check me out in the passenger seat, with Tiffany (@bellastone) of Manolith.com and Twirlit.com.
The Murano Cross Cabriolet is so different – It’s the first all-wheel drive crossover convertible, part SUV and part convertible.
Since I drive a Toyota Camry, I loved being up higher (it’s exactly like an SUV in that way). It’s got loads of room for 4 passengers — which made me think of the interior of the convertibles my father owned when he was single (back in the late 1950’s up to the mid 60’s). † It’s got a large trunk space, but keep in mind, you aren’t going to get as much in it as the Murano (but more than a regular convertible).† If you are going on a trip, you’ll be able to get tons of luggage in. It’s got a real back seat, which a regular convertible made these days barely has. If you have young kids like I do, you’re probably not going to buy this car (a double Maclaren umbrella stroller will fit, but not a wider stroller like a Mountain Buggy Double) — but when they are older (like tween and teen years), it’s something I would love to get!
While I’m not an expert on cars and have no clue about torque or horsepower (you can find all that info here at Nissan’s official site), I know that I loved driving it — and you will too!
Thank you to Nissan for providing this test drive opportunity in sunny Palm Beach Florida. The opinions expressed are solely my own and I can highly recommend this vehicle.
