Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is a first: a convertible crossover that has four seats, including a roomy backseat. Though it's based on the midsize Murano, the CrossCabriolet's starting price of roughly $47,000 exceeds that of any Murano hardtop. The CrossCabriolet has no direct competitors, though some might argue it's in the same family as the Jeep Wrangler — a four-wheel-drive truck with a removable soft-top.
New for 2012 The navigation system is now offered as a standalone option, but otherwise there are no significant changes for 2012.
Exterior The CrossCabriolet has the same overall length and width as the Murano, and although it's almost an inch lower at the roofline, it can't help but look like the largest convertible you've ever seen. The door count is reduced to two, and the B-pillars are gone. The powered soft-top has a skylight above the backseat, letting light in even when the top's up. Exterior features include:
Top in tan or black
Standard 20-inch wheels with all-season tires
Standard xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
Standard front fog lights
Standard LED taillights
Standard heated side mirrors
Interior The CrossCabriolet is based on the Murano's highest trim level, the LE, so it has leather seats with front seat heaters and eight-way power adjustment for the driver. Rocker switches atop the front-seat backrests move them forward to ease backseat entry.
Although the CrossCabriolet is based on a crossover, its trunk is relatively small. It measures 12.3 cubic feet, which is comparable to a subcompact or compact sedan. When the top is down, the trunk volume drops to 7.6 cubic feet. Interior features include:
Standard keyless access and ignition
Standard heated steering wheel
Standard dual-zone climate control
Available navigation system, backup camera and Bluetooth connectivity
Available Bose stereo with a 9.3-gigabyte hard drive, iPod interface and satellite radio
Under the Hood Mechanical features include:
Standard 265-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine
Continuously variable automatic transmission
Standard all-wheel drive
Premium gas recommended
Safety features include:
Standard side-impact airbags are incorporated into the front seats for torso protection
Standard side curtain airbags deploy from the doors to provide head protection, though not for the rear seats
Standard four-wheel antilock disc brakes
Standard electronic stability system
For rollover protection, active roll bars remain out of sight behind the backseat and deploy only if the car tips
