The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet deserves points for originality, and versatility too. It's ideal if you want 4WD traction in winter and sun on your face in summer. Its high beltline provides a cozy and secure cabin that's sheltered from the wind with room for four. And it comes fully loaded. The soft top is sleek when it's up and goes down in 25 seconds. The V6 engine is wonderful and the transmission is great. It's all you could ask for, first time out for a brave new genre.
