Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

By Fred Meier

Competes with: Ford Edge, Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe

Looks like: A slightly more aggressive tweaking of the 2018 model

Drivetrain: 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6; continuously variable automatic transmission; front- or all-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: December 2018

Nissan has given its 2019 Murano mid-size SUV a light once-over as it takes on such stiffened 2019 competition as a freshened Ford Edge, redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe and all-new Honda Passport.

The refreshed 2019 Murano, which will be unveiled this week at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show and go on sale in December, will continue to be offered in the base S, SV, SL and fully loaded Platinum trim levels, and with front- or all-wheel drive. Just two options packages are offered: An SV Premium Package adds a panoramic moonroof, a 360-degree camera system and Bose premium audio. The SL Technology Package, meanwhile, adds a moonroof and advanced safety and driver assistance technology.

Exterior

The Murano's look has been tweaked with a little more drama in the Nissan "V-Motion" grille as well as in the redesigned LED headlights, taillights and foglights. There also are new 18- and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheel designs and three new exotically named paint colors: Sunset Drift Chromaflair, Mocha Almond Pearl and Deep Blue Pearl.

A multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support is standard on all Muranos. The midrange SL trim level and above include standard in-car navigation, which has been upgraded for 2019 to include door-to-door guidance with 3-D building graphics and satellite images, an online point-of-interest search and traffic data.

Under the Hood

The Murano's powertrain carries over for 2019. All models have a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Murano is available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Safety and Driver Assistance

A front collision system with automatic braking again has been standard on all Muranos. Also standard for 2019 is a new rear door alert for you to check the backseat before leaving the vehicle parked, as well as a driver alertness warning, second-row side airbags and a front passenger knee airbag.

New for 2019 as an option on the SL trim level and standard on the Platinum is the bundle of advanced safety and driver assistance tech that Nissan has branded Safety Shield 360. It includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic high beams and rear automatic braking. Nissan has been extending this bundle across its lineup and will also offer it for 2019 on the Altima, Rogue, Rogue Sport and Maxima.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
