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.

Great vehicle

I bought my Murano new. I now have 55000 miles it has been one of the best vehicles I have owned. I have owned over 70 vehicles this at the top. I have owned Lexus, Cadillac, BMW,s this Muranno is as good or even better.


Visibility issues over hood

Seeing over the hood is difficult and on left and right the way its designed. I have been up on curbs more than not. Unless, redesigned would not buy again. The navigation screen is hard to see.


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.
