The new Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is an unusual vehicle, to say the least. It is convertible based on a SUV/Crossover platform, which could make it the ideal vehicle for a beach babe, or an automotive enthusiasts worst nightmare.

Whatever it is, our cousins in the north don’t want it. We spoke to a representative from Nissan Canada, who confirmed to us that they will not be offering the Murano CrossCabriolet in the country.

Nissan Canada says they want to sit back and gauge how the vehicle does in the U.S. before they commit to bringing it in their market. Interesting to see a company not having faith in one of its products for a reasonably well-to-do market, even if that market is covered under a blanket of snow for half the year.

Of note, Nissan did the same with the NISMO Z, waiting over a year before bringing it across the border.

So will this Murano CrossCabriolet be an American only special remains to be seen. Maybe we are very fortunate to have a special vehicle all to ourselves. On the other hand, maybe not. Prices for the Murano CrossCabriolet start at $46,390.

    FYI, there are many areas of Canada that are not covered in a “blanket of snow” 6 months of the year.

    If that’s true, why do you all live in Igloos? Check, and, MATE.

    Well Pbr, we have technology that allows us to keep our igloos cold on even the hottest of days. This way we stay we don’t suffer from the same mortgage crisis as our neighbours.

    I bought one in Canada. It was imported in by a dealership. This my first week with driving it and I love it. I will park it in my Igloo garage. LOL

    And you probably think you have never lost a war. It was Canada that won. Typical un educated USAmerican.
