Nissan Murano CrossCabrio to be discontinued image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan will pull the plug on its weird convertible SUV, the Murano CrossCabrio, after the 2014 model year.

The announcement hasn’t been made in an official press release just yet but according to the guys from Automotive News, the model in question will be discontinued after the 2014 model year. The carmaker says that the decision has been taken after small sales achieved by the vehicle which is because of its weird look and 41,995 USD asking price. The new-gen of the Murano has been officially unveiled a few months ago and a company’s spokesman has confirmed with our source that it won’t become a convertible.

As you probably remember, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet has been officially unveiled during the 2010 Los Angeles International Auto Show and it was added for the 2011 model year. The model in question is based on the second generation of the model which has been in production between 2007 and 2014, riding on the Nissan D platform, being related to the Altima, Maxima, Teana, Pathfinder and Infiniti JX. AS far as the engine lineup goes, this includes the 3.5 liter V6, the 2.5 liter dCi and the 2.5 liter I-4, in Japan.
