Top UK band Blue’s lead singer Duncan James has chosen a Nissan Murano 3.5 V6 to drive from venue to venue for their upcoming UK tour… and probably beyond. The "Best of Blue" tour started in Sheffield on 25 June and takes in seven cities with the grand finale taking place over three days at Wembley Arena on July 7/8/9.
Duncan commented: "I first spotted the Murano whilst in the States and thought it looked great. When I heard they were now available in the UK I just had to have one."
Nissan’s Murano is a crossover between a 4x4 and a luxury saloon. It first went on sale in December 2002 across the pond and UK sales started in March 2005. Already more than half this year’s allocation has been sold.
With the standard specification on the Murano being so high - 18" alloys, a Bose stereo, a colour rear-view camera, leather upholstery, a DVD satellite navigation system, and xenon headlamps are just a few of the standard features - Duncan didn’t have to spend ages choosing what to have. There is however one optional extra available, a DVD player. Duncan wasted no time ordering one for his car.
Powered by the same 3.5-litre V6 engine as the 350Z to give sub 9 seconds acceleration to 62mph, the Murano is priced at £29,995. Yes, even celebrities can spot value when they see it.
