Tired of that turnip-topped Nissan Murano? Street spies have good news, at least if you consider an SUV covered in electrical tape good news. It's the next-generation Nissan Murano, and it's out testing in the adder-infested lands of Southern Europe. Those who think they know say the next Murano is coming out later next year as a 2009 model, with more power and a less turnip-y shape that's sure to please or alienate folks jaded by the crossover boom. As needed.
