We know that the predecessor version was a beautiful car, following the same trend, Murano is styled beautifully by the manufacturer. The model has been designed humbly and great changes have been made. The designing technique is inspired by Resonance concept which was introduced some time ago and its design seems to fit on Murano to fulfill its needs.
In addition, there is a V-motion grille at the front that firmly holds the exterior with headlights. The headlights are boomerang-shaped and feature the latest LED technology. The design of hood is sloppy, it comes towards the grille at a smaller angle and its aprons are taller than the predecessor. The car seems a little bulkier and heavy. The back side of the car does not feature the diffusion section, instead, it uses deep-sculpted lines.
