actually i thinl it competes with the mitsubishi montero and the prado. so outlander is certainly a segment below this one

outlander will be competing with the likes of CRV
so my point is it doesnt make any sense choosing outlander over this one

however when you speak of murano your other choices can be prado or montero

If the basis of comparison is price, then Safari would have been in the league of CRV ( 100%+ import duty). Montero and Prado are fully imported and hence, just half the price. Of course Murano may be a better vehicle but definitely not worth the price we have to pay for an imported vehicle in India.

I said so because I feel , outlander if assembled in India would be better VFM than an imported Murano.

Do they have plans to launch the new "Rouge"?. IMHO, this vehicle is more practical for India.

Ive driven this car when it was launched in Japan a couple of years back. Its a great machine, very spacious from the inside and a lot of exterior options were available. But somehow it did'nt really click in Japan.

Default Murano spotted....

Just spotted this Murano at Mount Mary. Had an MH 43. Guess it's the same one as in the second post by akshay1234, because of the stickers running through the side. As far as I'm concerned, this is the ugliest SUV ever, I absolutely hate the looks, both rear and front. And they're all over the place, surprises me even more. Anyway here are the pics. Sony Ericsson quality, I'm afraid.

Probably because it was ugly as hell? Sorry for being so strongly opinionated against this thing but I simply cannot find one good thing about the exterior.

@jaxy, flyingspur:
Great pick.


This car looks quite impressive to me. But it would be great if Nissan can produce the same in India. Then the cost wont be as high as 35 lakh. Would love to see a diesel also.

india doesnt have many people spending 17 lacs on cars thats why d segment was poor sales

if the murano is manufactured here it will be around 17-18 lacs which does not belong to active volume segment
Great pick.

Recently read that Murano is going to be priced around Rs.40lk, and that it will be a good competition to the Touraeg and X3!!! whats the world coming to! and that too, it will only be in Petrol! no diesels!

Guess what! The one shown in this pic is 10 times more good looking than the new one that just came out.
All the pics shown in this thread are the older model Murano. The new one shown below just came out this year.

If ever there was a car with the most mismatched front & rear ends, this is it!! The front, especially, is outright ugly. Where is car design going? Sigh...

Default Older Murano better than the new one

The older Nissan Murano, the earlier model of the recently launched one is better looking. The SUV has a tought look along with smooth car like stance. The rear is though not as of an SUV, it blends well with the overall design. If Nissan priceses it well against the Endevor and the Pajero, I think Murano will be a winner.cheers:
