If you're looking for a new SUV crossover vehicle, the 2019 Nissan Murano should be on your list. Not only does it give off the vibes of a luxury vehicle, but it also has plenty of awesome safety, design, and technology features that make it one of the best options for you.
Have we piqued your interest? Good. Because in this post, we're going to go over the latest Murano's awesome features.
Let's get started!1. New Exterior Design
You know the old adage, "Don't judge a book by its cover." However, we're all guilty of doing exactly that.
The exterior is what you see first, and it's what forms your impression. Think about it: you don't get the same vibe from a red Ferrari that you get from a yellow Volkswagen bug, do you?
That's what makes the new Nissan Murano so great. They redesigned the exterior to make the lines sharper and more intense. It's a bit more sporty and aggressive looking but in a good way.
The new design includes adjustments on the front grille, headlights, foglights, taillights, and two-wheel design options. It also comes in eight colors, including three new options: Mocha Almond Pearl, Sunset Drift Chromaflair, and Deep Blue Pearl.2. New Interior Design
The interior design also got an upgrade with the new 2019 model. With premium leather seating options, the gorgeous multimedia display that comes standard with all Muranos, door armrests, comfortable seats, and various wood/chrome trim options gives off a refined and luxurious vibe.
You can also choose from other interior features like the Power Panoramic Moonroof, multiple seat material options, and different color schemes to fit your aesthetic.
The new interior is a bit more spacious and comfortable for all passengers.3. Two Premium Packages
Nissan is keeping it simple with your optional package additions: the SV Premium Package and the SL Technology Package.
Both packages can be added to the all-wheel and front-wheel-drive options.
The SV Premium Package adds the following features:
- Bose premium audio systems throughout the vehicle

The SL Technology Package adds the following features:

You can add either one to your new Nissan Murano.4. Safety Features
Speaking of those safety features, the Nissan Murano has a long list of them, even without the SL technology package.Standard Features
The safety features that come standard with the 2019 Murano include the front collision system and automatic braking system. There are also 10 standard airbags including front knee airbags and side passenger airbags.
A new standard feature is the backseat warning alert that alerts drivers to check the backseat before exiting the vehicle. Also included is vehicle dynamic control, which senses over/understeering and will automatically correct engine power, wheel position, and brakes to stabilize the vehicle.
The electronic braking system also senses when you have rear passengers or a large amount of cargo, which balances the car better to offset the extra weight. This braking system also automatically applies extra braking power when it senses the car is out of control, in an emergency, or when brake pressure is applied rapidly.Premium Features

- Lane departure assist
