Cargo space of 2019 Nissan Murano is limited though

What we think Nissan Murano 2019 has to improve:

  • The 2019 Murano’s CVT causes engine drone during acceleration with uninspired handling.
  • The Infotainment responses could be quicker, slender door pocket cubbies, curvaceous hood design creating potential blind spots.
  • It needs a replacement/ change of engine specs maybe to a VC Turbo owing to the fact that this same engine has been around since 2009.
  • Its onboard tech is a little bit old.
  • It lacks cargo space which makes it look horrible.
  • Its stylish exterior design creates a more compromised outward visibility.
  • It has a noticeable body roll when cornering.
  • It has a limited towing capability and also limited rear-view visibility.

But with all the ups and downs of the 2019 Nissan Murano, the bottom line is that it isn’t really a standout vehicle in class, but it offers plenty of satisfaction.
