Awesome SUV convertible by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/27/2014. Trim: 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It is unique to say the least. With the top down and just driving around, people have no idea what it is. I like that. I one bit of problem. has power enough and fuel economy is good for a vehicle like this. Have had ours since 2012. Couldn't be happier. Not for hauling 4 people with the top up unless they are small for back seat. Plenty on room for big and tall in front. Nav. works great.
Cons: as big as I am, getting into back seat is hard if the top is up.
Overall review: I love this vehicle.

Fun convertible. by Harry - Sacramento, CA on 08/09/2014. Trim: 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Fun to drive & everyone loves the color. Mine is a 2012 in the copper metallic with cashmere interior. You get all kind of looks in it with the top up or down. Lots of room for 4 adults.
Cons: Blind spots with the top up.
Overall review: I love this car.

Amazing Convertible - Fun to Drive by ConvertibleLoverNY on 08/07/2014. Trim: 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I went from the BMW 328I convertible to this SUV and I must say I am truly pleased. As a lot of the reviews have mentioned, I cannot drive this car without getting compliments on how great looking the car is. People are amazed that it is Nissan (confused that it says Murano). The gas mileage is unbelievable. People tend to love the style and comment on how rich looking and stylish it is. I like that fact that unlike the small and sporty BMW convertible I don't get pushed around on the roads (N/NJ driver) because of the size of the SUV It is a pleasure to drive, everyday feels like a day at the beach. I test drove the car in the winter and the AWD is amazing in the snow.
Cons: I wish that there were more features for the price such as heated steering wheel and power passenger seat. It is not a true SUV as the rear seats do not fold down (i'm sure due to the safety roll bars), if they could have figured a way to have the seat fold down to transport shelving or other large items it would be a perfect 10.
Overall review: Overall I rate this SUV a 9.5 out of 10. It is a pity that Nissan is discontinuing this SUV and concept instead of improving on a fabulous start. It truly is an amazing ride inside and out.

SUV and convertible - fantastic combination. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/07/2014. Trim: 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Unique, eye-catching design from the street. Inside, a curvilinear visual flow from the upgraded upholstery, to the door panels and front/rear window shape. Roof up, windows down, it's a great coupe-style ride, without a pillar, and with enhanced visibility. Roof up, the moonroof and light gray headliner make the interior seem light and airy. Speed-sensitive stereo is powerful and clear, and able to stream music from your smartphone by USB cable or blue tooth. CVT transmission is smooth and responsive, and with a press of the overdrive button, it becomes quite peppy for a vehicle this size.
Cons: Limited trunk space, 12 cubes with the top up, 9 with it down. Heavier by 600 pounds than the hardtop, and its 20-inch wheels slightly increase the vehicle's turning radius, factors which negatively affect handling, but within tolerable limits. Some windshield post vibration is to be expected on rough roads, but raise the heavily structured roof with multi-point interlocks, and this goes away. Interior storage space is somewhat limited, and the center console lacks a lock..
Overall review: As much fun as the Cross-Cabriolet is to drive, it is to talk about. This limited production vehicle attracts a lot of sidelong glances, as well as positive comment. This car clearly demonstrates what an auto maker's chief designer can do when pushing the envelope to produce a new expression of style, and the company dares to bring that vision to market.

Ultimate family convertible by TREN - DFW on 07/13/2014. Trim: 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The size and height of an SUV, the fun of a drop-top. After the normal sequence of mini-van and SUV for my wife while the kids were smaller, she wanted something fun. However, the traditional convertibles were too low to the ground for someone use to having some vision from the height of a full-size SUV. This car fits the bill perfectly. The most amazing thing is the back seat. I am just over 6-foot tall, but can sit in the back behind the driver with plenty of legroom for both of us. This is a four-passenger convertible for people who want to drive four real people around.
Cons: It is large, and so handling is a little less secure than a steel-top version. Otherwise, very little to dislike.
Overall review: Let's face it - you are not buying this car for anything other than looks. However, it is like dating the prettiest girl in school and finding out she is warm, loving, and very smart. We own the iconic Caribbean blue version and are constantly getting comments about the color as well as the top. The most common question is where did we get it - Nissan isn't the first place people want to credit for such a beautiful and fun car. We love the car, and it is very much an everyday vehicle for my wife and kids.
