2013 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is a first: a convertible crossover that has four seats, including a roomy backseat. It's based on the midsize Murano, but it has a considerably higher starting price. 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 2013
The standard 20-inch alloy wheels have a new design but there are no other significant changes for 2013.

ExteriorThe CrossCabriolet has the same overall length and width as the Murano crossover, 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

InteriorThe 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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
