t h g i l e d t Debu D-DAY: Nissan is playing catch-up with its latest generation Murano dCi diesel model which goes on sale next month

by CHRIS RUSSON

D

IESEL power is on the way for Nissan’s luxury 4x4 as the company plays catch up with its latest generation Murano SUV. Since its launch five years ago the Murano’s appeal has been limited by a thirsty V6 petrol engine. That’s changing next month when a 2.5-litre diesel version goes on sale capable of averaging 35.3mpg. Priced from £37,795 the Murano dCi is available only in one high specification trim to rival the likes of the Lexus RX 450h, the Land Rover Discovery and Audi Q5. Pound for pound the Nissan has plenty going for it with sleek and classy looks. Nissan claims the Murano created the crossover category with its blend of executive saloon and off road character.

SAVE UPTO

The diesel costs £2,800 more than its petrol counterpart and changes have been made to the front design to accommodate the new engine. There are additional air vents and a new grille while aerodynamic improvements include an underbody panel to help the vehicle eke out more miles per gallon. A regenerative braking system has also been fitted to reduce the load on the alternator further improving engine efficiency. Exhaust emissions are rated at 210g/km compared to the V6’s 251 and 26mpg. The savings are obvious but the Murano is not as eco friendly as some others such as the Q5 or the hybrid Lexus which attract lower tax rates for business users. The engine is an improved version of the 2.5-litre Nissan uses in its X-Trail and Qashqai models and it is mated to a six-speed auto box as opposed to a continuously

variable transmission used on the petrol Murano. On the road it is smooth and noticeably quiet for a diesel. Additional sound insulation has been installed in the wheel arches, under the bonnet and behind the instrument panel while the windscreen is double glazed to help reduce wind noise. Leather upholstery and well

crafted trim make the interior smart and classy while the sat nav is operated from a touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard. Bluetooth, iPod and USB connections are all part and parcel of the 40GB hard disc Nissan Connect communications and entertainment suite and the Murano is fitted with an 11 speaker Bose sound system.

The tailgate has a power closing system and luggage space ranges from 402 litres to 1,510 litres. In the luggage compartment there is also a restraint system to hold grocery bags and the like. The diesel Murano weighs almost two tons and is some 10% heavier than the V6. If anything that has improved its composure on the road, the V6 having always felt a touch on the light side to drive. Realistically, the Murano is more of a soft-roader than a mud plugger and its four-wheel-drive system automatically moves traction from wheel to wheel as required. Keyless entry, LED tail lamps, alloy wheels and darkened rear windows are all standard as are twin sun roofs. The Murano has always been a trendy and futuristic looking SUV and perhaps the economy of diesel will give it a much needed boost in popularity.

UMMER holidays are for kids but for the majority of families it seems there are two choices – go abroad and get burnt or stay at home and get wet. A few years ago we decided to split the difference by heading to Ireland. Half sun half rain perhaps. No such luck, we got comprehensively drenched, soaked to the bone every minute, every hour, every day, from the moment the first tent peg pierced the earth. There was one saving grace, a Toyota Corolla Verso as it was named then; a compact family car with seven seats that carried us through such delights as the McGillycuddy Reeks and the Dingle Peninsula. The word Corolla has now been dropped but the Toyota Verso remains a vehicle up there with the best as newer trendy MPVs and crossovers enter the fray.

But with a maximum of five in the car you’re talking pretty decent load space, which is all the time for buyers of the five-seater model which was added to the range last autumn. Convenience is the name of the game here, with the likes of raised gearshift, overhead mirror for checking on the kids, keyless entry, airline-style trays on the front seat backs, rear window blinds and lots of stowage space inside. The engine line-up comprises a revised version of Toyota’s 2.0-litre D-4D diesel, a 2.2 D-CAT oil-burner and both 1.6 and 1,8-litre Valvematic petrol units.
