India seems to have been pricked by the SUV-bug, especially with the automobile companies launching them in succession. Now, Nissan, the Japan-based automobile giant, has announced its plans of launching its latest premium sports utility vehicle (SUV), Murano, in India. With the latest revealing, the car-manufacturer intends to tap into the potential offered by the growing auto market of the country.

The name ‘Murano’ originates from the region of Venice, Italy which is known for hand blown glass production. The Murano was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2003 and even named the best premium mid-size SUV by Auto Pacific.

The latest SUV will come in direct competition with premium brands, like Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Toyota Prado, BMW X3 and Mitsubishi Montero. The best part of Murano is that it combines the glistening appearance of a coupe with the powerful engine of a sports-car. Color Ranges like Tinted Bronze, Merlot, Graphatie blue, Glacier pearl, Super Black, Graphite and brilliant Silver.
