Safety
Nissan equips each 2013 Murano with 6 air bags. Instead of side curtain air bags, the Cross Cabriolet features side-impact air bags that inflate upward from the door panels to protect front- and rear-seat occupants, as well as a set of pop-up rollbars for protection in rollover crashes.

Additionally, the Murano features 4-wheel vented-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, traction control, and stability control. All trim levels except the Murano S come standard with a reversing camera.

In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2013 Murano received an overall rating of 4 stars (out of 5). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't finalized ratings for the 2013 Murano as this overview is written.
