Depending on your perspective, Nissan has either completely broken the mold or completely jumped the shark with the new Murano CrossCabriolet.
It’s a soft-top convertible SUV with no cargo compartment. And it’s apparently the brainchild/pet project of Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.
It’s quite striking, and has a driving position that host Emme Hall compared to riding a mechanical bull.
It’s a vanity car through and through, so rational critiques of its lack of utility or steep MSRP ($46,390) will fall on the deaf ears of the small slice of Americans that will absolutely love it.
