Nissan has told Automotive News the Murano CrossCabriolet will be terminated after the 2014 model year.

Last week we talked about Nissan's intentions to drop the Cube for the 2015MY and now it seems the boxy model will be joined by the weird Murano CrossCabriolet which came out originally in 2011. Surprisingly, it lasted four model years but now it has been axed since very few people were willing to purchase an open-top crossover featuring a soft roof.

Combine the peculiar styling with a 41,995 USD asking price (for 2014MY) and it's easy to understand why the Murano CrossCabriolet is a failure. A few months ago Nissan unveiled the new Murano but a company spokesman has told Automotive News there won't be a convertible based on the new generation.
