The Leather package upgrades the seats.The premium Murano LE trim includes all the SL's options and adds 20-inch wheels, heated rear seats, and an iPod interface. Optional on both the Murano SL and the Murano LE are an upgraded technology package that includes a hard-drive-based navigation system, and a rear entertainment system.

With the rear seatbacks folded down, the Murano provides 64 cubic feet of cargo space, and with the proper equipment, it can tow up to 3500 pounds, according to Nissan.

The standard power plant in the 2010 Nissan Murano is a 265-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. According to the EPA, this combination delivers 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Standard safety features on the 2010 Nissan Murano include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, stability control, traction control, active front head restraints, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags.
