The Internet portal tests auto.de Nissan Murano with the one designed for the American market and in 2003 in Europe of introduced Murano, Nissan established a new vehicle segment: the business-class crossover. The vehicle class is for models that combine the virtues of an SUV with a sporty driving experience. Whether the label keeps what it promises, auto.de has tested the Internet portal. Although the design of the Murano Orient not on the traditional, his Nissan-family affiliation is clear the vehicle Tester auto.de notice. Parallels to the Qashqai, the related smaller crossover brother, were intended. The design always leaves a lasting impression. The Murano has a sophisticated electronics.

Such a convenient keyless system. To open the car you need press only the car to approach and a little button on the door. The classic key is no longer necessary even at the start: pressing the start stop button the motor is sufficient to starts. The automatically opening and closing tailgate complete the package of the many small electrical helpers. The business-class crossover is powered by a 3.5 litre V6 engine.

Known from the first series, the aggregate of a thorough revision was subjected to. The maximum torque is now at 334 nm or 256 horsepower. The consumption is in conjunction with the continuously variable automatic 11 liters per 100 kilometers. Everything has a price: the basic equipment of the Murano 46.740 euros, the top model fails with 50.450 euros.

Environmental protection for new and used Volvo uppercase takes very seriously the issue of environmental protection for both new and used Volvo Truck truck for truck maker Volvo. Therefore Volvo meets the emission standards Euro 4 and Euro 5 through the use of SCR technology now also, as the vast majority of the Western European truck manufacturers. 4 emissions standard in Europe in 2006 and the euro was introduced 5 standard the euro in the year 2009. Volvo developed new solutions for diesel engines, combustion processes and technologies for the exhaust to meet the standards. The manufacturer Volvo is the leader in the development of these technologies for the reduction of exhaust gases. Specifically, the new technologies include diesel engines with more efficient combustion in conjunction with exhaust aftertreatment using AdBlue additive and SCR (selective catalytic reduction, selective catalytic reduction). What exactly is now behind the SCR technology. The SCR technology is the best solution to implement the requirements of the Euro 4 standard for Volvo Truck.

The SCR technology is a proven and reliable method that will not affect the vehicle’s performance and the fuel-saving solution for Euro 4 and Euro 5. For the Euro 5 engine, for example more AdBlue is injected to further reduce the nitrogen oxide content. For Euro 4 the percentage of admixture is equivalent to 3-4% of the fuel quantity, for Euro 5 approx. approx. 5 to 7%. Summarized the SCR technology brings many benefits: Pan-European use possible, clearly unempfindlichere response to diesel fuel of inferior quality than other technologies, low-maintenance and use throughout the lifetime of a vehicle aligned, does not affect the service and oil change intervals of vehicles fitted with, also suitable for cars with high performance and represents the fuel saving of all solutions available for Euro 4 and Euro 5. An additive called AdBlue is needed for the Volvo SCR technology, which is injected into the exhaust gases before they are led through a SCR-catalyst.

In the catalytic converter, you will be Then then nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water vapor transformed – so substances, which already in nature occur. The urea is the substance in AdBlue and is extracted from natural gas. Urea is a crystalline white powder that does exist in this form in nature. It is a stable and non-toxic substance for which no storage or transport constraints exist. Volvo is working with leading oil and chemical company of intelligent solutions for a distribution network and the use of AdBlue. Many manufacturers have container systems and equipment on offer, which already is available for delivery. Up to the complete infrastructure for AdBlue Volvo dealer network will offer a convenient and cost-efficient system for the unique requirements of AdBlue its customers.
