2015 Nissan Murano: Offers Abundant Room for Rear-Facing Convertible Car Seats

June 12, 2015

2015 Nissan Murano

Families of four or even five will be quite happy with the 2015 Nissan Murano. It's incredibly roomy for a five-passenger, two-row crossover SUV.

The third-generation Murano easily passes my personal car seat test: My oversize convertible car seat (a First Years True Fit C680 SI) fits in all its side-bolstered glory, and there's still space for an average-size adult to sit up front quite comfortably.

Seen above, not only does my front passenger have ample legroom, he's able to recline the seat to a reasonable angle. This setup would certainly work for a road trip.

I didn't need to do anything special to snug down the car seat in our long-term Nissan Murano. The lower anchors are pretty accessible. Although it's sometimes hard to get my seat's chunky, push-button LATCH connectors hooked onto anchors located between the seat-back and bottom cushions (you kind of have to push the cushions apart to get access to the metal loop), I didn't have much trouble here.

The Murano only has LATCH anchors in the rear outboard position. I didn't try a seatbelt install in the rear center position, because I didn't think my seat would fit well between the front seats. With a narrower convertible car seat, this would certainly be worth trying.
