Nissan subtly updates the style of its mid-size crossoverby Keith Buglewicz
What it Is
2009 Nissan Murano Preview – 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show: Car companies are fundamentally conservative entities. For example, when a car’s styling is a hit, the company will be reluctant to wholly redesign it, with “why mess with success” being the order of the day. Which brings us to the 2009 Nissan Murano, which at first (and second, possibly third) glance looks a lot like the original Murano which it replaces. The most obvious change is to the grille and headlights, which grow toothier and lensier, respectively. But the profile remains largely the same, with a few elements of the new Rogue thrown in.
