Nissan bullish on RVs

NISSAN claims independent research suggests the launch of two new four-wheel drives in 2005 – the Murano and Pathfinder – will further strengthen its residual values in the fleet sector.

It says EurotaxGlass’s figures show that ‘a combination of low volumes, stylish good looks and family car practicality’ suggest strong residuals for the vehicles that will also have a halo effect on the rest of the Nissan range throughout the year.

EurotaxGlass’s predicts a residual value of 46% for the Nissan Murano 3.5-litre auto after three years /60,000 miles, which means depreciation of £16,106.

Forecasting editor Jason King said: ‘The Murano shares design cues with the coupe/roadster, which should ensure cult following of the new four-wheel drive.’
