I did a tremendous amount of research before buying this vehicle, Edmunds, Car and Driver, Consumer Reports, etc. Even attended an auto show to compare midsize crossovers. If you are looking for a premium,two row crossover the Murano wins hands down. The interior makes you feel that you are in an Infiniti and the seats are very comfortable. Except for a little wind noise from the side mirrors the cabin is very quite. Performance wise the engine-cvt combination provides excellent power in all situations and the handling is very good for crossover. The Murano is responsive with good feedback from the road. The Murano is fun to drive.
Engine and handling, the power liftgate, rear seats that can be raised or lowered with one button, rear view camera, the Bose sound system, the dual moon roof, the smart key.
For a vehicle like this a navigation system should be standard and not part of an expensive equipment package.
