Nissan says four-seater is "the world's first all-wheel-drive crossover convertible"
18 November 2010

This is Nissan’s Los Angeles motor show launch: the Murano CrossCabriolet.

The firm is calling the car “the world’s first all-wheel-drive crossover convertible”. It says the Murano CrossCabriolet has room for four adults and luggage, even with its roof down, and a “premium” interior.

It’s due to go on sale next early next year, but there are no plans to bring the model to Europe.

The other models on Nissan's LA show stand will be the Ellure saloon concept and a new Quest minivan - both focused squarely on the US market - and the production version of the Leaf.

Read about this car amonth ago in another top selling weekly car mag, and i've still got the same opinion, who or where is this car going to succeed?, an SUV that's a cabriolet!?, what are they thinking?, maybe in the Emirates and places with that kind of climate, but not here in blighty, please Nissan, don't do it!.

Cool A convertible 4x4 I'm not sure why, but why not.

People over here buy plenty of cabriolets, & plenty of SUVs... so the climate here wouldn't stop it selling. Plenty of people used to buy convertible Vitaras in this country so I could see a smaller SUV cabriolet maybe based on the Juke or the Qashqai, actually selling really well over here :)))

currently a happy owner of a Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin :)

An open top 4x4, who would have thought it was possible to have such a thing, apart from Landrover, or Willys over 50 years ago. Didnt take long for them crafty Japs to catch on.

It actually looks better than I thought. Or should I say doesn't look as bad as I thought it would?

Mr Cavellini... More cabriolets are sold in the UK, per head of population, than any other country in Europe. Perfect climate for them see - never too hot. Besides, like it says in the text, there are (ironically enough) no plans to bring it to Europe, so you've nothing to worry about.

Sorry Autocar, but you are mistaken. My Father worked for an outfit called "Rapport" in the early 1980s who were chopping the tops of Mk1 Range Rovers and fitting folding hoods. Nissan rarely do anything that is really new!

hedious in my opinion. Not the first convertible 4x4 as mentioned. The first version of the freelander and the RAV4 had convertible options as well. And anyone remember that audi concept a couple of years back??
