Safety

Our experts’ favorite Murano safety features:

Automatic Emergency Braking (optional)

Front radar monitors proximity to the vehicle ahead. In an imminent collision, the Murano can apply the brakes to avoid/mitigate impact.
Blind-Spot Monitoring

The Murano's stylish exterior also makes for reduced side and rear visibility. This feature helps compensate. Standard on SL and Platinum.
Around-View Monitor

Four cameras display a 360-degree bird's-eye image of the car. Selectable curbside view works great for parking. Standard on SL, Platinum.

Superior choice!
Having owned two Nissan Altimas previously, I was aware of the quality of Nissan cars. My current needs dictated that I step up to a larger vehicle and test drove Nissan Pathfinder, Rogue and Murano. While all three provided the extra space that was needed, the biggest selling feature on the 2017.5 Murano was the comfort with the styling of the interior and exterior sweetening the decision. The final deciding factor was the fact that my physically challenged mother was easily able to get in and out of the car because the seats are chair level. Transferring from a wheelchair or walker is incredibly easy with this car. It should be noted that I had also test drove popular cars - Toyota Rav 4 and Highlander, Honda CRV and Pilot, Mazda CX5 and CX9 among others (all for at least 24 hours each), my mother and husband both had problems getting in and out of these cars and the design and handling of these vehicles were in a different league than the Murano. I have my 2017.5 SL AWD Murano for 3 months now and my fondness for this car increases with each ride. I am impressed with the turning radius, advanced safety features, intuitive placement of all controls, lovely styling of the interior ambient light, sure handling with quick response and sense of security in this car. My six months of research have paid off! The only thing that I would suggest to the designers of this car would be to add another light in the rear of the car. Other than that, it is very evident that a great deal of thought went in to the safety, styling and comfort of the Murano. I am looking forward to many more years of being satisfied!
Like riding on clouds!
This is the most comfortable car I have ever driven or ridden in. I knew exactly what I wanted, not a lot of extras, the car comes with almost everything I wanted, drove 142 miles to buy it. I drove it home and wasn't miserable. I have been driving a Volvo XC90 and thought it was a comfortable car until I got the Murano... I am still learning how to operate all the newer gadgets, but it is not difficult at all. So far, the only thing I wish I had added is darker tint on the glass. The Apple play is not useful for those of us who don't care for iPhones. I had heard that the 20 inch wheels were not as smooth as 18s, but I would fall asleep if it were any smoother. Even my husband, who is a very tough sell on new ideas, is very impressed. He is 6'3", weighs about 240 lbs and can drive the car very comfortably. I have not folded the rear seats, not sure I ever will, so I can't comment. So far, so great!!! Six months later and I still love the car! Okay it's a year old now and I still love this car!
This car makes you feel good!
The engineers at Nissan designed a great vehicle. The Murano satisfies all my needs and gives me a lot of extras found on luxury cars. As a matter of fact, it beats luxury cars in styling, roominess, and value. It's like looking at a piece of art. It's plenty quiet, accelerates quick and smooth, and contains many safety and convenience features. You can spend less for a competitor's crossover, but you won't get anything close to the Murano. I got the SL package because you need the all around view camera system to see in tight spots. The SL package also gives you the leather seats.

BRYN MACKINNON: I'm Bryn MacKinnon, and this is an Edmunds expert rundown of the 2017 Nissan Murano. [MUSIC PLAYING] For 2017, the Nissan Murano gets a few new items, like the addition of Apple CarPlay functionality and a drowsy driver warning system, but everything else carries over from last year's model. Overall, that's a good thing. It has a sleek exterior design, good ride quality, and comfortable seats for even the longest road trips. There's plenty of room in the back seats for adults and there are lots of available tech features. Unfortunately, despite some virtues, the Murano isn't quite at the top of its class. There's a decent amount of cargo space in the back, but the Murano falls behind class leaders by a few cubic feet. [MUSIC PLAYING] Also a bit lower than average, is the Murano's tow rating. It's a modest 1,500 pounds, where most rivals can tow at least 2000 pounds. If we're honest, though, those are some pretty minor complaints. Inside, the Murano certainly feels classy and that's one of its stronger suits. There's leather everywhere, plenty of space for adults, both front and rear, and lots of soft material, where your elbows spend most of their time. [MUSIC PLAYING] The bottom line is that the 2017 Nissan Murano is a comfortable, quiet, and stylish choice in the mid-size crossover segment. It may not offer a fancy luxury badge on the front, but it certainly feels fancy on the inside. Other class leaders we recommend checking out include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Toyota Highlander, and the Ford Edge . For more Edmunds expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe.

There are luxury vehicles, and there are luxury brands, and occasionally the twain shall meet. Such is the case with the five-seat 2017 Nissan Murano crossover SUV. Though Nissan is not a luxury brand, the Murano is a decidedly upscale vehicle, with advanced visual design and upscale interior trim that would be right at home coming from Nissan's upscale Infiniti arm. Higher trim levels feature leather-lined cabins that further narrow the gap between the Murano and pricier luxury-branded SUVs. Yet when it comes to price, the space between the Murano and these luxury brands is immense.

We are of two minds when it comes to the Murano's exterior styling. It is funky and futuristic, which we can appreciate, but the price is paid with limited outward visibility, particularly to the rear. The interior is similarly unconventional though this design has little negative effect on functionality. And we like the way the accent lighting highlights the three-dimensional elements. We found the front seats to be extremely comfortable and the backseats offer plenty of room. Cargo space, however, is strictly middle of the road.

We think of the Murano as a forward-thinking vehicle, so it's disappointing that some of the more advanced safety and driver assistance features are only offered on upper trim levels. The new-for-2017 drowsy driver system isn't offered on the two lower models and forward collision, automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control are only available as options on the two priciest versions.

All Murano models are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that develops 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. Nissan pairs this engine with a CVT transmission, which provides smooth, shift-free acceleration. In Edmunds testing, the Murano accelerated to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds, which is about average for the class. The EPA fuel economy estimate for the 2017 Nissan Murano is 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway) for both front-wheel- and all-wheel-drive versions. The Murano's ride is quiet and comfortable and it is clearly tuned for serenity over sportiness.

There are four versions of the Murano: S, SV, SL and Platinum. All are well equipped, with the S as the entry-level offering. SV steps it up a bit. The SL borders on the luxury class and the Platinum barges right in. Yet even with all the trimmings, the Murano's price barely approaches that of true luxury-branded five-seat SUVs. Which model is best? Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Nissan Murano for you.
