The Americans from MotorTrend have tested the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet, the eccentric SUV which can offer an open air experience to up to four occupants.
Featuring an hydraulic fabric soft top cover built by Magna International (the same supplier for the 370Z), the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet makes use of a complex mechanism that has five collapsible section built from aluminium and magnesium.
Power comes from a 3.5-litre V6 petrol that  channels 265 horses and 248 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels via a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and which enables EPA estimated consumption figures of 17 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
The Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet takes 7.7 seconds to reach 60 mph from a stand still and also requires 16 seconds to hit a quarter mile at a speed of 89.1 mph. Bringing the 4116 lbs Cross Cabriolet to a full stop from 60 mph requires 125 feet and on a track, this topless SUV has an average lateral acceleration of 0.78 G.
