Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Fresh-faced and better equipped, the 2020 CR-V is now an even more compelling choice among compact SUVs. Aside from the styling improvements versus last year's model, Honda is now offering a hybrid powertrain which consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors; the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder has been dropped and the previously optional turbocharged 1.5-liter engine is now standard on all non-hybrid CR-Vs. More standard and optional equipment enhances the CR-V's value for 2020, starting with a suite of driver-assistance features that includes automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control that will be standard on all models.

Pros
Classy interior trimmings, two fuel-efficient powertrains, voluminous cargo hold.

Cons
Lackluster infotainment performance, could be quicker in acceleration testing, limited towing capacity.

Comfortable ride…
..and a comfortable interior
Affordable base trims

Cons
Group-study looks

Pros

Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

Cons
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob

Nissan has given the Murano's safety game a boost for 2021 by making its previously optional suite of driver-assistance features standard across the range. Called Safety Shield 360, this package of features includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beams, among others. Gone is the SV Premium package and in its place Nissan will offer the Special Edition package, which includes a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree exterior camera system, faux-leather upholstery, heated front seats, and 20-inch wheels.

PROS
Bold styling, well-appointed interior, lots of standard driver-assistance tech.

CONS
Blasé driving dynamics, CVT is unrefined, low towing capacity.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2021 Nissan Murano’s windswept shape still looks good and safety is strong, but it’s showing its age.

PROS
Unique style
Comfy front seats
Plush ride
Lots of active safety gear

CONS
So-so cargo capacity
Interior and tech show their age
Surprisingly thirsty
Not as well-equipped as some rivals
