The Nissan Murano was recently named a 2015 Top Safety Pick Plus by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Murano scored “Good” ratings in all five of the IIHS safety tests, earning it the highest honor a vehicle can receive.
Fred Diaz, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing and Parts & Service for Nissan, said, “This Murano has once again raised the bar for Midsize Crossovers in terms of modern styling, levels of interior refinement, luxury and technology in its class. At Nissan we are happy to the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus rating to the list.”
Being awarded a Top Safety Pick Plus rating doesn’t come easily either. IIHS raised their standards for the tests two years ago, requiring vehicles to earn “advanced” or “superior” ratings in the front crash prevention tests, which the Murano did.

Some of the most remarkable cars at Nissan seem to fly under the radar… until now that is. The 2015 Nissan Murano was recently awarded the “Best of What’s New” award by Popular Science magazine. As one of the exclusive cars to win in the automotive category, it’s a pretty big deal.
According to Nissan, the new model owes its win to the 2015 Murano crossover design. Crossovers represent a group of cars that incorporate a little bit of everything so drivers get exactly what they want. The Murano is no different; when we say you can get everything you want, we mean it.
Fred Diaz, a Senior VP at Nissan, said, “The redesigned Murano is leading the way once again with an incredible balance of style, comfort, innovation and more. With the Murano set to hit dealerships in early December, this award serves as a great vote of confidence that this vehicle is among the best.”
The redesigned Murano features premium styling, inside and out, plenty of room, and comes with an advanced NissanConnectSM. A 3.5-liter DOHC V6 provides performance, yet retains great fuel economy, and the safety features are cutting edge. With Blind Spot Warning, Moving Object Detection, and Forward Collision Warning, it’s one of the safest vehicles on the road.
