Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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:

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

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

The 2017 Audi Q7 gets a rakish new sport-wagon look, a finely detailed, tech-savvy interior, and serious chassis advancements underneath—including a dramatic weight loss, available rear-wheel steering, and a plug-in hybrid version.
Most models with a third row really put a damper on most kinds of driving enjoyment, whether that be zigzagging through tightly mountain-road esses, or just maneuvering through the parking lot of your local supermarket.

Pros
Sportier, more carlike look and feel
Finely detailed cabin
Innovative rear-wheel steering
Weight loss and better mpg

Cons
Best tech features limited to top trim
Third row not all that usable
Potentially very expensive

The 2017 Audi Q7 ranks 4 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The completely redesigned 2017 Audi Q7 scores well in the very competitive luxury midsize SUV class. In particular, its combination of interior quality, passenger and cargo space, and performance stand out. Each of these are important considerations for shoppers in this segment.

Pros
Potent V6 engine
Nimble handling
Luxurious interior

Cons
Less cargo room than rivals

By:

Few three-row luxury crossovers are as desirable as the fully redesigned 2017 Audi Q7. Thanks to a supremely comfortable cabin, a powerful V6 engine and the latest high-tech features, the Q7 delivers capability and elegance in a package that'll make you feel as if you've arrived.
After a one-year hiatus, the Audi Q7 is back and fully redesigned for 2017. Highlights include revised styling, a roomier interior, new technology features, improved fuel economy and a new four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

pros
Plenty of the latest safety features and driving aids
Powerful supercharged V6 engine
First-class cabin comfort with vault-like quietness
Excellent IIHS safety scores

cons
Limited cargo space compared to most other midsize SUVs
