Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2017, the standard Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone interfaces. A power liftgate and an automatic brake hold feature are also added to the already ample standard features list.

Pros
More standard features than many of its competitors
Heavily insulated cabin remains quiet at all times
Order the optional adjustable suspension for an especially supple ride.

Cons
Less room in the backseat and cargo area compared to many competitors
Slower than average acceleration from either of its available engines
Some interior materials look cheap considering the price point.

The 2017 Lincoln MKC ranks 8 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. If you're looking for a luxury SUV with a comfortable, relaxed ride and an upscale, feature-laden interior, the 2017 Lincoln MKC could meet your needs. However, if you can stretch your budget a bit more you can get an SUV with better performance and more cargo and passenger space.

Pros
Hushed cabin
Cushioned ride
Generous list of standard features

Cons
Little rear-seat legroom
Mediocre cargo room
Noticeable turbo lag from base and upgraded engines

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 MKC is a step in the right direction for Lincoln, thanks to controlled handling and interior luxury, but it lacks rear seat space and the cachet of its luxury rivals.

Pros
Strong turbocharged engines
Responsive steering, handling
Nicely detailed cabin
Real. Radio. Knobs.
Leather and wood (from Scotland, no less)

Cons
Tight back seat
EcoBoost engines aren't always 'eco'
Transmission doesn't always match engine's urgency
The anonymity of Lincoln today

The 2017 Nissan Murano is smooth and polished—and that may be just the ticket for buyers who want a high seating position and the availability of all-wheel drive.
The 2017 Nissan Murano is a five-seat crossover that sort of defies convention. Instead of following its rivals by trying to appeal to growing families or those intent on at least looking the off-road part, the Murano is plush and comfortable, something of a more palatable luxury crossover.

Pros
Dramatic exterior styling
Superb ride quality
Silent cabin
Classy interior design

Cons
Safety tech should be available on S, SV
Passenger seat lacks height adjustment
Ride harshness with 20-inch wheels
Value proposition not as impressive on SL, Platinum

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Nissan Murano ranks 6 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Nissan Murano offers the comfort, performance and refinement typical of luxury SUVs, but without the hefty price tag. Its interior outclasses those of most competing vehicles, and it delivers a cushioned, smooth ride over most surfaces. However, you may wish it were a bit more engaging to drive.

Pros
Posh cabin
Very comfortable seats
Intuitive tech features
Fuel-efficient for a V6 SUV

Cons
Poor rear visibility
Slow steering response

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Nissan Murano is a versatile five-passenger midsize crossover with ample room for all passengers. It's a smart choice if you want an upscale, V6-powered vehicle without the luxury brand premium.
For 2017, the Nissan Murano adds Apple CarPlay functionality and a drowsy driver warning system. New driver assistance features are now available for the SV trim, while the Platinum trim gets a new Midnight Edition styling package.

Pros
High-quality interior materials and unique design features
Exceptionally comfortable front seats
Right balance of power and fuel efficiency
Spacious rear seats that accommodate passengers and car seats with equal ease

Cons
Modest cargo capacity limits practicality
Can't tow heavy weekend toys like some competitors
Funky exterior design creates compromised outward visibility
Advanced safety features are only available on upper trim levels
