Nissan’s outrageous new Murano CrossCabrio (a name invented for this Crossover Cabriolet) was finally unveiled at the Los Angeles motor show to become the world’s first production drop-top SUV.
Featuring a fabric-roof, the Murano CC has also been turned into a two-door car and gets a whole new rear-end design. Looks aside, it seems to be huge fun driving it.
The thing is Nissan will launch it in early 2011, which is right in the middle of winter! Not the perfect time for enjoying a high-riding convertible.
The engine and drivetrain of the Murano CrossCabriolet is the same as the regular Murano with the 3.5-liter 24-valve DOHC V6 producing 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque, mated to a standard second-generation Xtronic CVT™ with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC) and AWD system.
The car, with destination charge included, will cost around $47,000 in US.
