    Nissan Murano MCE inspired by new Quest



    I really dislike the Murano front end so I grafted the new Quest front end onto it ( with a nip and a tuck and a slightly revised grille opening) - any better?

    That looks a lot better. Hopefully, Nissan is considering something similar to this. The current front end on the Murano is hideous.

    I think Nissan should even consider doing something similar to the front end of the Rogue as the current front end is rather bland and sort of cheap looking.

    Good Job!

    thank you and I agree 100% - I'd like to see a similar face across all the CUV/SUVs

    Nice, I particularity didn't like the Murano's shark teeth grille. Your one looks much better.

    Even though I love the front end of the current Murano (to me it looks futuristically aggressive and sleek, like a Cylon fighter) I like your chop.

    Hmmm... it would take some getting used to. I prefer the original Murano's face.

    I would call that an MCE that makes the vehicle look worse. The original Murano was attractive. The chrome stripe above the Nissan symbol somehow reminds me of headgear.

    Are you looking at my headgear?

    Nissan is pushing the design envelope with both Nissan and Infiniti vehicles - long gone are the simple clean designs of the early 2000s.

    Then I guess the new Nissan look is not for you

    Re: Nissan Murano MCE inspired by new Quest

    I wonder what it would look like if that thicker chrome piece was at the bottom of the grill and the horizontal bars went up to the hood level with a little chrome at the top? You'd have to move the logo up a bit to center it in that case. Might be interesting, I think.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    I love futuristic looking designs like the current one, so this gets a nah for me. Plus the hexagon grill apes Hyundai's current styling direction.

    But nissan would be wise to offer a different grill & kit special editions every year or so to keep it fresh. Similar to the endless variants sold in Japan of the Toyota Bb, Honda Step-wagon & Freed, Suzuki Swift, etc.

    I've dreamed of futuristic looking cars since I was 10....to me, the current Murano is incredible looking, with the front looking inspired by a Cylon fighter/robot.

    Actually, I would like to see this front end treatment adopted by the car products too. The only exceptions would be the Z and the GTR, which should go their own way.
