The desire to go paperless has been sweeping the United States for years now, and the national parks want to do their part in joining the movement. Subaru has teamed up with Chimani to cut down on waste in parks by working to eliminate the paper maps and travel guides that used to get passed out to visitors. The two companies are joining forces to release 59 apps that will serve as digital travel guides for different national parks across the country.
If you have a child heading in for another year of high school or trekking off to college, you might be thinking about helping them get a car so they have a bit more independence. To make that choice easier, the editors at Kelley Blue Book compiled a list of the 10 best back-to-school cars of 2016.

Plenty of parents are on the lookout for a new crossover that can fit the whole family, and Nissan offers the perfect fit: the 2016 Nissan Murano. The Murano was just recognized as one of the 10 Best Family Cars of 2016 by Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com for the second straight year earlier last week. The editors of both outlets base their selections on a range of factors to determine what makes a vehicle one of the best. Features that are considered include safety, comfort and capacity, fuel efficiency and “kid-friendly” features, among numerous other factors.
“The redesigned Murano has terrific passenger and cargo space, including comfy contoured rear seats that kids – and even adults – will appreciate,” says Parents Editor-in-Chief Dana Points. “Plus its utter lack of cabin noise ensures that kids can nap undisturbed on long drives.”
The available technologies in this crossover will leave you, and everyone you bring along, entertained. The optional NissanConnect℠ will allow you to connect to your compatible smartphone, so you can enjoy your music, podcasts and SiriusXM® Sports while seeing traffic flow and more. The best part is you can enjoy all of this on your 8-inch touchscreen.
The technology doesn’t stop there, as the Murano provides plenty of the latest safety technologies to allow you to drive with more confidence. This remarkable crossover offers the available Around View® monitor with 360° moving object detection, so you can know that your vehicle is looking out for your safety as well. Another optional feature is blind-spot warning, which will help you to be more aware of your surroundings on the road before you make a lane change.
These are just a few reasons why the 2016 Murano was named one of the 10 Best Family Cars of 2016. If you want to test-drive it yourself, be sure to head down to our Nissan dealership near Easton, MA, today!
