A new report is out by Fortune magazine that surveyed a select number of automobile journalists. And that survey says reviewers found Nissan’s unusual Murano CrossCabriolet as one of the oddest cars on the road.
“Not since the Mercedes R-class, and, before that, the Pontiac Aztek has the overall verdict been so bruisingly negative. The CrossCabrio has been tarred for being lumpy, dumpy, shaky and sluggish,” Fortune said in a statement. It goes on to describe it as “an artichoke on wheels.”
If that’s not enough for you, just based on aesthetics alone, I myself would say that the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is our new generation’s Pontiac Aztec.

Nissan themselves recognize that the CrossCabriolet is a bit challenging on the eyes and even said themselves that they were expecting it to struggle. And despite the positive notes on the refined interior and nice appointments, that’s not much to sway people towards the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet because General Motors said their Pontiac Aztec had nice appointments and a refined interior. Ha, ok.
