CR Model Summary
With aggressive new styling, Nissan's midsize SUV gets an airier interior with larger windows, a lower dashboard, and an optional full-length panoramic sunroof. An available eight-inch color display houses the NissanConnect infotainment system, with access to mobile apps, entertainment, and more. Nissan's punchy, refined 3.5-liter six-cylinder soldiers on under the hood, paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The cabin is quiet and nicely finished, delivering an upscale feel. The ride is steady and handling responsive if not sporty. New electronic safety features include moving object detection and blind spot and cross-traffic warnings, along with forward-collision warning with emergency braking.
