Nissan Holds Prices for 2012 Murano, Lowers CrossCabriolet Price to $45,350

Much as Nissan has done for most of its lineup, the 2012 Murano will carry over its 2011 prices, starting at $30,100, including $810 for destination and handling. For those 301 Benjamins coming from your bank account, Nissan will sell you a front-wheel-drive Murano S. Stepping up to a Murano SV, which adds a dual-pane moonroof, automatic headlights, roof rails, and Bluetooth hands-free calling among a list of other features will cost $33,670. An 8-gigabyte music hard drive, a driver’s seat with memory settings, and rain-sensing wipers cost come in the $37,210 Murano SL, and the top-tier Murano LE carries a base price in front-wheel-drive configuration. Adding all-wheel drive costs an additional $1600 across the board. New for this year is the Nissan Murano Platinum Edition, outfitted with 20-inch wheels, an in-dash navigation system, and an exclusive sapphire black paint color. The price for the package is $2020 in addition to the cost of the Murano LE. Moving to the vehicle so absurd you wonder why anyone thought of doing it, the Murano CrossCabriolet, will set you back $45,350. While that’s a lot of coin to cough up, it’s $1850 less than last year’s model. That slash in price comes from the fact that the Murano’s hard drive-based navigation system — standard last year — moves to the options list. Otherwise, it’s largely unchanged going into its second model year. Both the 2012 Murano hardtop and CrossCabriolet are already on sale at Nissan dealerships nationwide. Source: Nissan
