I like the idea.

I can picture a lot of women getting this car. I mean it's going to be some type of limited production for this model, right? I don't think there'd be much problem selling this car.

Rejoice Aztec owners:

http://content.usatoday.com/communit...e-on-wheels-/1

What new car model did auto reviewers hate the most? Envelope, please.

Fortune magazine says its survey of reviewers finds that it is the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, one of the oddest cars on the road -- if you can find one.

"Not since the Mercedes R-class, and, before that, the Pontiac Aztek has the overall verdict been so bruisingly negative. The CrossCabrio has been tarred for being lumpy, dumpy, shaky, and sluggish," Fortune writes. It goes on to describe it as "an artichoke on wheels."

Drive On went for a spin in the $47,520 CrossCabriolet a few months ago and was surprised that target customers -- older, wealthy people -- in Santa Monica, Calif., seemed intrigued by it. Nissan officials on hand easily admitted that the car's looks are "polarizing," part of a lineup that includes the equally disturbing crossovers Nissan Juke and the Cube. They didn't seem to mind that a lot of people are going to hate it.

And we were surprised at the nice appointments given such an unusual car, particularly its refined interior. Then again, General Motors once said the same thing about the Pontiac Aztek.

That interior is stunning! It's a shame the outside looks like...that.

The Nissan Murano Crosscabriolet was nothing if not uh, unique, and even though it only had a brief life in the early 2010s, its majesty and mysteries are immortal. Except for one, which has now been solved: What’s was the deal with that weird little secondary rear window?

I have never been inside in a Nissan Murano Crosscabriolet. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw one. But if I ever did I always assumed that the horizontally split rear window had something to do with letting light into the cabin or assisting with rear visibility.

Those may be factors, but today the always-observant friend of Jalopnik (and sometimes contributor) Bozi Tatarevic shared an epiphany on Twitter:

He spotted this convertible crossover sitting in a salvage auction lot post-crash, and as you can see in the pictures at the auction house’s listing, it’s pretty clear that the deployed rollover protection bars were designed to pop straight through that clear piece of convertible top.

The thinner plastic must just be easier for the roll bars to punch through than the thick canvas that the rest of the roof is made of.

This poor mangled Murano looks like a piece of luggage now, but at least the passenger-occupying portion of the cab appears to be intact. Here’s hoping the car’s safety systems effectively sacrificed themselves for the occupants. And thank you, Mr. Tatarevic, for solving one of the great automotive mysteries of our generation.

Possibly the ugliest modern car on the road, IMO. Up there with that Aztek & PT Cruiser Convertible.
