What Is the 2016 Nissan Murano?
The 2016 Nissan Murano is a mid-size, five-seat SUV that competes with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Subaru Outback. The Murano is offered in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and Platinum. All-wheel drive is available for all trims.
What's New on the 2016 Nissan Murano?
There are no significant changes to the 2016 Nissan Murano.
How Does the 2016 Nissan Murano Compare to Other SUVs?
When it comes to comfort and space, the 2016 Nissan Murano delivers. It offers more cargo room than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the top-tier Murano Platinum comes with a generous array of features. On the other hand, its steeper prices and unconventional styling may put off some shoppers.
What Features in the 2016 Nissan Murano Are Most Important?
The 2016 Nissan Murano is powered by a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Other highlights include LED daytime running lights and taillights, a backup camera, keyless entry, push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control. Front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard as in all vehicles of this model year.
Drivers have a choice between front- and all-wheel drive. Exterior options include a panoramic moonroof and a power liftgate, while the cabin can be outfitted with a navigation system, leather seats, heated and cooled front seats and heated rear seats. Forward collision warning and emergency braking, a blind spot warning system and a driver attention monitor are also available.
Should I Buy the 2016 Nissan Murano?
If you want an SUV that stands out in the crowd and offers a luxurious interior, the Nissan Murano is a good pick. Ride quality is smooth, although the steering feels disconnected and visibility could be better. Additionally, the Bose stereo system is lackluster, compared with the quality of the Murano's other features.
