2018 Nissan Murano review: Our expert's take

What it is: The Nissan Murano is a five-seat mid-size crossover SUV that fits between the compact Rogue and the larger Pathfinder, which comes standard with three rows of seats. The Murano stands out in the crowded SUV field for its leading-edge styling. All models use a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and continuously variable automatic transmission. Competitors include the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and a navigation system with an 8-inch screen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are now standard. SV trim levels add blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, while the SL trim gains adaptive cruise control and a motion-activated power liftgate.

Bulletproof and comfortable for the money.

By far one of the best suvs I’ve ever own, AWD, V6, Bose sound system, pano roof, nasa foam seats, CarPlay, you don’t need much else on it, even came with the blacked out wheels from factory, it was clean from the day I got it and it’s still great now, drove from Pittsburgh PA to Newport Beach, CA and I’d do it again in a heartbeat, no problems what so ever. Peeled the plastic off of it from the dealer myself.


great car for the money

Compare it to the Ford Edge, Honda Passport, Hyundai Sante Fe, and others. I think you will be impressed. Does everything well. Very comfortable, fuel efficient, and peppy. Has a straight Nissan V-6 that has been there best engine for many years.


Just bought it. But very comfortable

The car is very comfortable and has a lot of room throughout. Rides very nice, plenty of engine. Super nice color, and lots of gret features which will be great for long trips.
