If you haven't noticed by now, I've been steadily beating a drum.

Well, not literally. There's been a consistent theme with our coverage of the 2014 New York Auto Show and it's very simple: if you're in-market for an all-new automobile, you're going to LOVE the New York show.

Most of the concepts that did turn out have been seen extensively already. There's nothing wrong with that but the big show in the Big Apple lacked a bit of sizzle. The good news is that folks looking to buy a set of wheels were hit from all angles with new product. So, that's the positive note.

If you were an Agent on the floor this made naming a BEST car at the show a bit difficult. It's sort of an unwritten rule that a car that's appeared before can't win. BUT, there was one vehicle, in particular, that had me excited BEFORE the show and when I finally saw it, the sport-utility vehicle juiced me up.

That would be the all-new Nissan Murano, folks.

Sporting a design influenced by the all-new Sport Sedan Concept we saw in Detroit, it's a good looking SUV. It's edgy and has a bit of spunk. We like that. And then if you actually take a second to check out the interior it's pretty bananas — in a good way. With that light colored interior and white wood — it looks like a BMW Individual trim — it looks snazzy as hell.

Of course the doors still shut in that Nissan way. They're tinny. But we're sure most buyers won't care or will be whisked away by its sporty design and plenty of space in all directions.

Speaking for myself here, I am really looking forward to Nissan's new design direction. In recent years the only cars that stood out were the 370Z and GT-R. Perhaps we're going to see a more lively and vivacious Nissan going forward? Let's see how the next-gen Maxima turns out.

Congratulations, Nissan!
