2024 Nissan Murano Cargo and Passenger Space

Nissan's crossover SUV thrills drivers with robust power, intelligent all-wheel drive, and cutting-edge in-vehicle tech, making every drive a joy ride. Nissan packed the Murano with the most sought-after features and created ample interior space to maximize comfort and utility. The spacious and luxurious 2024 Nissan Murano outshines the competition with the perfect blend of premium features and customizable space.

Introduction to the 2024 Nissan Murano

The Murano's appealing combination of performance, style, and luxury makes a bold impression and perfectly balances power and efficiency.

Luxury SUV enthusiasts can't stop talking about the Murano's cutting-edge tech, sleek style, and impressive capability, and its expansive cargo and passenger space has everyone buzzing. If purchasing the hot, new Murano interests you, get preapproved online to save time at the dealership.

Cargo Space Dimensions

The Nissan Murano has the space you need for your busy life, your next trip to the beach, or even a cross-country adventure. The cargo area behind the back seat measures 37 inches long, 43 inches wide, and 33.7 inches high, equaling 32.1 cubic feet of space. Folding the rear seat flat provides a cargo space of 74.4 inches long, 43 inches wide, and 33.7 inches high, totaling 67 cubic feet of space.

Nissan has multiple cargo accessories to help organize and protect your belongings. It even offers a retractable pet divider that keeps your best friend in the cargo hold, preventing them from muddying up your seats after a fun day. Contact us to explore the exciting accessories available for your Murano.

Passenger Space Dimensions

The luxurious Nissan Murano is certainly no compact SUV. Front passengers enjoy 39.9 inches of headroom, 40.5 inches of legroom, 55.4 inches of hip room, and 59.5 inches of shoulder room. That's 55.7 cubic feet of passenger volume in the front seat alone.

The rear seat provides 39.8 inches of headroom, 38.7 inches of legroom, 55.2 inches of hip room, and 58.9 inches of shoulder room, or 52.4 cubic feet. Such generous spacing makes the Murano's rear seat a very adult-friendly place for riding around Tracy, California, or heading out of state.

Versatility and Seating Configurations

The Murano's configurable cabin with a 60/40-split folding rear seat allows you to carry longer items without sacrificing all your passenger space. You could leave the 60% side up and still fit two children or one adult in the back seat. With the 40% side flat, you can load just about anything you need, including 2x4 boards and yard tools.

Fold the 60% side flat, and you still have room for one adult or child in the back seat while carrying longer and broader items. The available motion-activated liftgate makes loading cargo a breeze, even when your hands are full. Wave your foot below the sensor, and the liftgate opens.

Interior Quality and Materials

Nissan carefully curated premium materials for the Murano's cabin, capturing the essence of refinement. You have various upholstery options (according to your trim). The Murano SV has Black Graphite leatherette seating surfaces. The high-quality synthetic material is beautiful and durable. Choose the Cashmere leatherette for a brighter look.

The Murano SL's genuine leather in Graphite or Cashmere creates the sophisticated look and feel you deserve. The top-tier Platinum trim has Mocha semi-aniline leather upholstery and dark wood-tone accents that exude sophistication.

While designing the cabin, Nissan thought of everything. The zero-gravity seats in the front with heating and cooling ensure a smooth, comfortable ride in every season. The rear seats heat and recline to enhance the experience for all passengers. The view from the rear seat provides a clear line of sight to the front, encouraging communication. The panoramic moonroof makes the already spacious cabin feel more extensive.

Technology and Infotainment

Nissan equipped the Murano with Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of driver-assistance systems that provide peace of mind. The suite's automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection scans for cars and people crossing the road. The system alerts you to any obstacles and engages emergency braking to help avoid a possible collision.

The blind-spot warning system uses sensors to alert you when vehicles enter or are in your blind spots, allowing you to change lanes confidently in traffic. A rear cross-traffic alert system uses similar technology to notify you when a vehicle crosses behind you while you back up and engage rear automatic braking to help you stop. While you're traveling in marked lanes, Nissan's lane departure warning alerts you when it detects an unintentional drift.

Your in-vehicle tech runs through an 8-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. The user-friendly setup syncs with your smartphone for hands-free operations and endless on-the-go entertainment. Simple voice commands give you access to your favorite apps, navigation information, phone calls, texts, and more without taking your attention away from the road.

Comparison With Competitors

Although the Murano has many competitors, it outperforms them all. The Honda Passport does come close to the Murano in most aspects, but the Murano offers more luxury appointments. The Passport and the Murano have V-6 powertrains, but the Murano gets better fuel economy ratings.

The Murano provides more comfort and convenience to the driver and passengers than Hyundai's SANTE FE. The Nissan Rogue's recent refresh gave it a competitive edge, but the Murano's upscale features and larger interior stand out. Our constantly running new vehicle specials further separate the Murano from its competition.

We hope this article has helped you understand how versatile, luxurious, and spacious the Murano is. To upgrade your Tracy commute, shop our inventory online to find the Murano trim you like best, and visit our North Naglee Road showroom for a personal demonstration and test drive.

2024 Nissan Sentra Fuel Efficiency

Given the volatility of gasoline prices and the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels, fuel efficiency is one of the most critical qualities that many automotive consumers look for in a vehicle. If you're among today's growing fuel-conscious crowd, then the compact car segment offers you the best set of options on the market.

In this segment, the Nissan Sentra is consistently one of the best-selling models. The Sentra series has long held a reputation for being an affordable and practical everyday vehicle. The 2024 model year upholds that reputation while stirring up significant anticipation with a refreshed design and terrific fuel economy. See how the latest in the line perfectly represents Nissan's commitment to offering a balance of efficiency, performance, and value.

Fuel Economy

The estimated fuel economy of the 2024 Nissan Sentra varies slightly depending on the trim level you choose. The base-model S trim and the midrange SV both get 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway for a combined fuel economy of 34 mpg. That places it within the top 10 most fuel-efficient vehicles of 2024, according to Kelley Blue Book. The fuel economy takes a slight dip with the range-topping SR trim, but even that gets an excellent 30 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway, and 33 mpg combined.

Each of these fuel economy figures improves on the previous model year. Nissan attributes the improvements to the 2024 Sentra's new XTRONIC continuously variable transmission (CVT) and idle stop-start system. The XTRONIC CVT not only has a broader transmission ratio than most other automatic vehicles but is also lighter and more compact. Meanwhile, the idle stop-start system automatically turns the engine off and on in response to braking, which prevents excessive fuel consumption.

Powertrain and Performance

Under the hood of every 2024 Sentra is a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine that pairs with a front-wheel drivetrain and the aforementioned XTRONIC CVT. With 149 hp, 146 lb-ft of torque, and a maximum engine speed of 6,400 rpm, you can expect a zero-to-60 time of about 9 seconds. The Sentra also decelerates quickly; it's capable of braking from 70 mph to a complete stop in 170 feet.

Eco-Friendly Features

Here are the principal mechanical and design elements that the 2024 Sentra incorporates for improved eco-friendliness.

XTRONIC CVT

Nissan's XTRONIC CVT is leaner than other automatic transmissions. Specifically, it weighs 13% less and is 10% smaller, which allows it to improve the Sentra's fuel efficiency by at least 10%.

Idle Stop-Start

The idle stop-start system automatically turns off your vehicle's engine when you come to a complete stop and turns it back on when you release your foot from the brake. This system ensures that you aren't using more fuel than you have to, effectively helping you save at the pump and reduce your carbon emissions in the long term.

Aerodynamic Design

An aerodynamic design contributes significantly to the refreshed look of the 2024 Sentra. The gist of it is that a more streamlined body leaves less physical area for the wind to catch and affect steering. Therefore, the more aerodynamic a vehicle's design, the more fuel-efficient the vehicle is likely to be.

Eco Mode

The 2024 Sentra features multiple drive modes, including Eco Mode, which is designed to maximize your vehicle's fuel economy.

You activate Eco Mode by pressing the designated switch on the instrument panel, located near the steering wheel. Doing so illuminates the associated ECO indicator light on the dash. When activated, Eco Mode regulates your vehicle's transmission, power delivery to the engine, and throttle sensitivity, ultimately reducing accelerator responsiveness to prevent bursts of speed. This keeps the vehicle from consuming excessive fuel.

Eco Mode is best suited for times when you can maintain a constant speed for long stretches of road, such as on the freeway. For ordinary stop-and-go driving, the normal driving mode is ideal.

The Driving Experience

The 2024 Sentra's fuel efficiency helps to offer you a dependable driving experience free of anxiety about gas mileage. In just its normal driving mode, you can complete long-distance road trips without breaking the bank at the pump. Say, for instance, you're traveling from Tracy, California, to Los Angeles — a distance of around 320 miles. With a combined fuel economy of 34 mpg and a fuel tank capacity of 12.4 gallons, the 2024 Sentra can cover that distance on a single tank with plenty of fuel to spare.

Competitors of the 2024 Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra has a lot of fuel-efficient competition in the compact car segment, yet it still holds up in its class. Here's how some of the 2024 Sentra's gas-powered competitors stack up against its 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway fuel economy:

  • Mazda3: With the sedan body, the 2024 Mazda3 gets 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The hatchback model has lower fuel economy with 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
  • Subaru Impreza: The 2024 Impreza sees a dip in fuel economy from the previous year, netting 26 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
  • Volkswagen Jetta: Three out of four trim levels of the 2024 Jetta get an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.

Accident Prevention

The 2024 LEAF has a suite of features to help prevent accidents. Except for intelligent driver alertness, all the features come standard on both the S and SV PLUS trims. Here are some of the 2024 LEAF's top accident-prevention features:

  • Lane departure warning: This system alerts you if you drift out of your lane.
  • Intelligent trace control: It helps you make smooth turns on curves and corners.

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection: Like the intelligent forward collision warning, the automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection system monitors the road ahead. It considers your speed and distance from objects and warns you if you need to slow down, while the included automatic braking helps if you're about to crash or a pedestrian is in a crosswalk.
  • Rear cross-traffic alert: This system monitors the area behind your car. It can warn you if other vehicles approach while you're backing up.
  • Rear automatic braking: Like the rear cross-traffic alert, it monitors the area behind your car and includes automatic braking to prevent a collision. Instead of looking for moving objects like the cross-traffic alert, it looks for stationary objects.
  • Active ride control: This feature keeps your ride smooth over bumps.
  • Other collision prevention features: The 2024 LEAF also has features such as intelligent driver alertness (standard on the SV PLUS) and a vehicle dynamic control with traction control system.

2024 Nissan LEAF Driver-Assistance Features

Intelligent Around View Monitor

This system can help you park in the smallest of spaces, as it offers a 360-degree look around your vehicle. The Intelligent Around View Monitor system uses four cameras to make a composite view, including an overhead angle and curbside views. It'll alert you if something moves near your vehicle. This system is available on the S trim and standard on the SV PLUS trim.

ProPILOT Assist

ProPILOT Assist, standard on the SV PLUS trim, helps you keep a steady distance behind the car in front of you, keeps you in your lane, and adapts to changing traffic.

Challenging Driving Conditions

The 2024 LEAF is here to help if the road ahead gets challenging. High beam assist is standard on every LEAF. This feature will automatically switch between your car's low and high beams as needed, such as when another vehicle is ahead of you. Hill start assist is also standard on both trims to keep you from rolling backward on steep hills.

Other Driver-Assistance Features

The LEAF has a few other features to keep you safe on the road. Although the S trim doesn't come standard with the Intelligent Around View Monitor, it does include a rearview camera. Both trims come standard with a rear sonar system.
