The 2018 Nissan Murano ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Nissan Murano has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-end cabin
Extremely comfortable seats

The 2018 Nissan Murano adds better active safety to complement its sharp looks and easy-driving nature.

Pros
Sharp exterior style
Comfortable drive
Better safety features this year
Every trim has navigation and big touchscreen
Relatively good fuel economy…

Cons
…but still no hybrid powertrain
CVT doesn’t like to be pressed on time
Lacking upper-level interior touches like wood trim
Style won’t be for everyone

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Nissan Murano now includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and navigation on every model. Options have been distilled into two packages, with options from previous model years (i.e., adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats) now spread throughout the lineup as standard features.

PROS
Delivers right balance of power and fuel-efficiency
Interior highlighted by high-quality materials and unique design
Front seats are exceptionally comfortable
Spacious rear seats accommodate passengers and car seats with equal ease

CONS
Stylish exterior design creates compromised outward visibility
Can't tow heavy weekend toys like some competitors
Modest cargo capacity limits practicality
