CR Model Summary
With aggressive new styling, Nissan's midsized SUV gets an upgraded interior with a lower dashboard and an optional panoramic sunroof. Nissan's punchy, refined 3.5-liter six-cylinder carries over, paired with a continuously variable transmission. The cabin is quiet and well-finished, and has an upscale feel to it. Handling is not very sporty, with overly light steering that reduces driver confidence. The ride is steady and absorbent on the standard 18-inch tires, but less so on the Platinum trim's 20-inchers. Optional safety features include blind-spot and cross-traffic warnings, as well as forward-collision warning with emergency autobrake. An available 8-inch color display houses the NissanConnect infotainment system.
