The Japanese car maker is introducing its first Nissan Murano diesel version badged as the dCi which will be sold on the British market.
The new Nissan Murano diesel engine is a 4-cylinder with a 2.5-litre capacity that outputs 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque and which will be mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox that features Adaptive Shift Control.
Thanks to this dCi engine the diesel version Nissan Murano will comply with the Euro5 emissions standards as it returns 35.3 mpg and has CO2 levels of 210 g/Km.
The Nissan Murano diesel price starts at 37,795 GBP and details regarding standard features and equipment are available in the press release below.
Nissan press release :

  • New Murano available with diesel engine for first time
  • Impressive 450Nm torque and 190PS
  • EUROV emissions standard achieved with 210 g/km
  • Expected to account for over 90% of Murano sales
  • Available to order now from £37,795 OTR
  • New engine also arrives along with MY2011 Murano facelift

As the first true crossover and a halo model for Nissan, the only
thing that could enhance the Murano is the pace, economy and efficiency
of diesel power – and that’s now exactly what it’s got!
Available to order in the UK now, the Murano dCi benefits from a
diesel engine specifically engineered for Europe with significant input
from engineers at Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTCE).
The 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine has been totally revised with
extensive changes designed to provide the perfect balance of performance
and efficiency for the Murano. This is combined with a revised 6 speed
automatic transmission providing Adaptive Shift Control for the optimum
gear and helping to reduce CO2 emissions by 5.0g/km through
lower transmission friction and Clear Neutral Control. It is now fully
compliant with tough Euro5 emissions standards, and develops 11% more
power and torque than before. The headline figures are 190PS and 450Nm
at just 2,000rpm.
An all-important benefit of the new diesel unit is efficiency, and
with 35.3mpg economy in the combined cycle and 210g/km CO2
emissions the Murano is more appealing than ever. This is helped by
improved aerodynamics and a first ever on Murano, an electric power
regeneration system.
The importance of refinement hasn’t been forgotten either, with the
very latest engineering techniques employed to ensure the Murano’s
premium cabin environment remains uninterrupted.  Among the improvements
are a change from chain to belt drive for the power steering pump to
reduce noise while a fifth engine mounting point has been added to make
the Murano as quiet as possible. At the same time, extra sound absorbing
material has been added to the engine bay to reduce noise intrusion
into the cabin even further.
Nissan’s designers have also taken the opportunity to combine the
need for cooling airflow to the diesel engine and radiators with a
styling makeover for the Murano’s front-end. A new grille and bumper
design reinforce the striking looks that have long blended the dynamic
pleasure of a sports car with the cabin comfort of an SUV.
This combination of abilities is reflected on the spec sheets. Murano
comes fully loaded with everything from 20-inch alloy wheels, power
tailgate and colour rear and kerbside cameras all fitted as
standard. Murano also features Nissan Connect Premium satellite
navigation system with 7” touchscreen, HDD 9.3 Gb music server, ipod,
Bluetooth and aux connectivity combined with premium 11 speaker BOSE
system and the option of rear seat DVD entertainment system.
In addition, the kit list includes rear privacy glass, bi-xenon
headlamps, cruise control and Murano’s signature electrically folding
rear seats, which can be raised or lowered easily and conveniently from
the luggage area.
All this comes wrapped up in the Murano diesel package priced at a
highly competitive £37,795. Orders are being taken now ready for the
first deliveries in September. 
Now firmly established as the pioneer and leader of the crossover
market, Nissan’s improved Murano shares many of the cross-segment
abilities that have made the Qashqai and the seven-seat Qashqai+2 so
successful in the family hatchback sector. What’s more, Nissan’s
crossover dominance is set to be further underlined by the arrival,
later this year, of the Juke, Nissan’s new compact crossover.
