The halo  vehicle for Nissan's expanding range of bold crossovers and SUVs, the dramatic  new Murano embodies Nissan's new design direction - including its V-motion  front end, LED boomerang lights and the unique "floating" roof. Murano's  breakthrough exterior design carries into the interior, which offers an  engaging social lounge feel through features such as the refined lower-height  instrument panel, wide center console, advanced NASA-inspired Zero Gravity  front and outboard rear seating, and the airy atmosphere created by the large  windows and oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof.  The 2015 Nissan Murano  was revealed at a press conference led by Nissan Chief  Planning Officer and Executive Vice President Andy Palmer and Nissan North  America, Inc. Chairman, Management Committee and Executive Vice President  José Muñoz.  "In the past three years, Nissan has completely transformed its product  portfolio, grown  global volume by more than one million units, strengthened  the brand to being the fastest-growing automaker on the Interbrand Top 100,  resulting in the shake-up of entire auto industry segments," said Palmer.  "Murano helped create a new segment, and the latest version, debuting today,  redefines that segment."  Added Muñoz:  "We have ambitious growth targets for the Nissan brand, and  these goals are supported by increasing consumer demand for our newest  products. In the last 12 months Nissan brand sales were up nearly 15 per cent  in the U.S. due to positive customer response to new vehicles like Versa Note,  Pathfinder and Rogue. Now with the new Murano coming this fall, we expect this  momentum to continue as we're poised to set even better numbers for 2014,  including increased market share."  In addition, Nissan demonstrated its new, highly innovative Smart Rearview  Mirror that utilizes advanced camera technology to enhance the driver's view  behind a vehicle. For its first U.S. showing in New York it is installed in  the all-new 2014 Rogue at the Nissan display. Housed within a structure of a  traditional rearview mirror, the Smart Rearview Mirror allows the driver to  switch between a traditional rearview mirror and an LCD monitor, depending on  the driver's preference. The camera projects a clear image - a wider and  clearer view than a standard mirror - onto the monitor for a better view, as  well as a more comfortable driving experience.  "Smart Rearview Mirror will give our customers the best possible view no  matter how tall the passengers in the back seat or how bad the road  conditions," said Palmer. "This mirror technology reinforces Nissan's  commitment to improving the everyday driving experience with advanced systems  and technology, such as Electric Vehicles, connected and autonomous driving  cars."
