The Nissan Murano Cabriolet managed to gain an overall verdict and after a large battle with the Pontiac Aztek the Japanese model was “awarded” with the “Most Disliked 2011 Car” title.
“Sluggish, wobbly, weird-looking, with a front end shake that would mix a good daiquiri, crazy awful. CrossCabriolet is like a sorbet of mouse cat. When this thing hits a pothole, it shakes its jowls like Curly from the Three Stooges – wubba-wubba-wubba”, was the car described the Pulitzer Prize winner Dan Neil.
The Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet was tagged as the first convertible crossover and it appealed more to female drivers because of the high seating position and carrying capacity.
The CrossCabriolet was presented officially at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2010, confirming the rumors of a Japanese convertible crossover. The “strange-looking” Nissan model hit the North American dealerships in spring 2011 but its unique exterior design didn’t catch on.
