What's Wrong With This Picture: Topless Beach Edition

by Edward Niedermeyer

If you’ve ever been to a topless beach, you know the basic problem: you expect a bunch of topless Jags and Maseratis, but what you actually get is this, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. Four thousand pounds of roly-poly crossover blessed with the totally misguided belief that people want to see it with its top off. And it would be one thing if this were just a one-off concept, but it sounds like Nissan is considering actually making this thing. We’ll keep a corner of our eye on this as the LA Auto Show kicks off… but we’ll be sure to avoid eye contact.

    How can anyone say this is any worse than a PT Cruiser convertible? It will sell.

    Wow! Ed, you're one tough cookie. I don't know why, but I was looking forward to this when I first heard of it. And I think it looks good. I will hold my final opinion until I see it this weekend in Los Angeles. I gotta say, however, I am really a sucker for anything convertible. Remember when they were cutting of the tops of small pick-ups in the eighties? I think it was around that time. Awful!!!!

    To my eye it's got that old Dodge Command Car mojo-thing going...

    I like it. Should have alot of passenger in a small footprint. Also looks like a hard top. Perfect for the city!
