Nissan will round out its refreshed SUV range at April’s New York Auto Show, where it will reveal the all-new Murano.

The carmaker has offered few details on the new model, although it is known that the 2015 Murano will share its platform with the Altima sedan and the new Pathfinder.

And, with the new Qashqai and Pathfinder handling seven-seat needs in two size segments, the Murano is expected to stick with a two-row layout.

Nissan reckons the design of the new Murano will ‘shock’ buyers, although it is clear the new SUV will slot comfortably in with the brand’s new look.

The company has yet to offer any teasers, although our spy photos reveal the new Murano will take much of its inspiration from the earlier Resonance concept, including those hooked headlights and LED tails.

Potential powertrain options can again be found within the new Pathfinder, with Nissan changing from a diesel engine to the 3.5 litre V6 petrol unit fitted to the current generation Murano, matched with a CVT.

We could also see the Pathfinder’s supercharged hybrid system appear in the new Murano, enhancing the unique drivetrain’s value within the Nissan production schedule.

Will we see the new Murano in Australia? Absolutely.

Speaking with TMR late last year, Nissan Australia boss Peter Jones told TMR that the Murano will continue here - despite the Pathfinder now offering the same petrol engine with CVT combination, seven seats, two-wheel-drive and a cheaper price tag.

Mr Jones said there was sufficient demand for all of the SUVs in Nissan’s local range; the Dualis (soon to be Qashqai), X-Trail, Pathfinder, Murano and the much more heavy-duty Patrol.
