Described by Nissan as “the latest in a series of crossover designs from Nissan, fusing bold styling with a hybrid-electric powertrain,” it previews styling cues that will feature on the next Nissan Murano SUV.
The concept appears to continue the Murano’s tradition of featuring bold styling, with a dramatic flowing crease running along the Resonance’s body side. The concept also features a more dynamic version of the L-shaped sweeping LED tail-lights that feature on the current Nissan Juke.
The most significant styling detail is the floating roof. The design builds on the upswept C-pillar that featured on the old Murano, which had a dramatic kick in the C-pillar. However, the C-pillar on the concept doesn’t run up to the roof.
Instead, the pillar curves down, leaving a gap to the roof that floats above the steeply raked rear window.
The next Murano is not expected to be sold in the UK, as a large-engined Nissan SUV would cannibalise sales from sister brand Infiniti’s newly renamed range of QX crossovers.
