Nissan’s next-generation Murano is set to emulate the 2002 original by relying on 'shock value' styling, according to a new report.

According to US industry paper Automotive News, Nissan’s global design chief Shiro Nakamura wants the next model to stand out among the increasingly competitive mid-size SUV segment.

"When we did the first Murano, we shocked people. We’d like to make another shock”, Nakamura said.

The current second-generation Murano features an evolution of the first model’s styling, but the next model (due in 2014) is likely to take cues from the TeRRA SUV concept headed for this weekend’s Paris Motor Show.

Both the Leaf EV hatch and Juke crossover are hinted at in the TeRRA’s design, but its muscled profile is a clear departure from the river pebble-like Muranos to date.

Similarly, the next US-market Maxima (Australia gets the Japanese-market Tiana with a Maxima badge) is also set to make a splash compared with the decidedly ho-hum current model.

"The next Maxima will have to go even further in its design, and will be very aggressive", Nakamura said.

Australia may not see the new Maxima follow the entry of the Altima midsizer in 2013, but you can bet on the new Murano making a local appearance.
