Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet
This interesting attempt at combining the sporty good looks of a convertible with the practicality of an SUV ended up being one of the most polarizing vehicles of the last decade. Nissan took their respectable Murano SUV, cut the top down and removed two doors, and then released the lamb to the wolves of reviewers, who chewed it up and spit it out. If the reviews are to be believed, the top was slow and clunky whenever it moved, the little V6 wasn’t powerful enough to accommodate the 4400-pound beast, and the front end shook like a paint mixer, plus visibility was next to nil through the strange dual rear window when the top was up. While Nissan gave up on the CC just four years into its run, for some reason, the remaining models are sought after by buyers intrigued by the unusual styling.
Our next model tried to learn from Nissan's mistakes.
