2010 Los Angeles Auto Show: 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Live Photos

Follow Nelson

With the exit of the Chrysler PT Cruiser from the market, folks looking for a semi-crossover-like convertible with questionable proportions have been kind of short of options. If Nissan has its way, that'll soon be solved, as the debut of the 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show proves.

The Murano CrossCabriolet has long been rumored on the web, but now we finally have live photos of the vehicle so we can ascertain that the car is real. It's billed as the world’s first all-wheel drive crossover convertible, and no doubt it should offer the open air fun of a drop-top while extending the versatility of a crossover.

Inside, there's room for four adults and their gear (even with the top down), as well as more premium touches than the regular Murano.

This is no one-off concept, by the way. The 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is confirmed for sale early next year, with pricing to start at $46,390. In the meantime, check out our previous post for all the juicy details.

  1. i think people will care. there seems to be a market for off-the-wall platforms these days. i'm just worried that the (potential) success of this stupid thing will spawn a whole new convertible crossover market

    Bad stuff?

  2. Nissan is definitely answering a question no one in their right mind would ask. Shame they didn't learn from the "bathtub on wheels" convertible PT Cruiser, which may have generated as much derision as the Pontiac Aztek.

  3. I'm really intrigued by this! If they can keep scuttle shake to a minimum, they may really have something here - will be very interested to see the reception it gets in LA.
    Still can't quite imagine it - will this be a completely removable roof, or something more like a big window blind? Time will tell!

  10. This whole over-sized two-door thing was tried by Renault with the Avantime. They sold less than 10,000 in two years.
