My Murano Rocks!
N.A. Benson, 4/24/2018
I researched a lot of SUV's before deciding on the Murano. The thing that grabbed my attention the most was the stylish look of the car. Its very Sexy looking and the only other SUV that looks close to it is the Lexus RX, in which I hate the front grill on that car. Everything about the Murano looks stylish and works for me. The panoramic sun roof is awesome , the ride is smooth and the CVT trans is even smoother. Lots of room in the back and trunk space. I bought the Platinum with all the bells and whistles. I feel I chose the right SUV for me. No regrets!

I owned my first Murano for 7 yrs, 145,000 miles. I liked it so much I bought another. This one has many more electronics. The front seats are much more comfortable. I am getting better mileage than the older model.
Very comfortable.
C. Lanetti, 6/1/2018
Traded 2017 Nissan Pathfinder for the Murano. The Murano rides, handles and is just way more comfortable.
Luxury for Less
Annette Berge, 7/5/2018
We owned a 2016 Cadillac SUV Luxury Edition. Our Nissan Murano SL has so many more features that our Cadillac did not have and we have gotten so much more with our Nissan Murano for less money. Better gas mileage, intelligent navigation, lane departure warning, awesome styling, and all-around camera for parking with forward and side view cameras. I could go on and on. We love the Murano.

More about the 2018 Nissan Murano

There are luxury vehicles, and there are luxury brands, and occasionally the twain shall meet. Such is the case with the five-seat 2018 Nissan Murano crossover SUV. Though Nissan is not a luxury brand, the Murano is a decidedly upscale car, with advanced visual design and upscale interior trim that feels at home coming from Nissan's upscale Infiniti brand. 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 with little detriment to functionality, and we like the way the ambient lighting highlights the cabin's three-dimensional elements. We found the front seats to be extremely comfortable and the back seats plenty roomy. Cargo space, however, is strictly middle-of-the-road.

The Murano feels like a forward-thinking vehicle, so it's disappointing that some of the more advanced safety and driver assistance features only come on upper trim levels. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking come standard on every 2018 model now (previously not the case). But you'll need to move up to higher trims to get features such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a 360-degree parking camera.

All Murano models are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 (260 horsepower, 240 pound-feet of torque). Nissan pairs this engine with a CVT automatic, 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 2018 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. The SV steps it up a bit, while the SL borders on 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 2018 Nissan Murano for you.
