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

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 Nissan Armada ranks 6 out of 6 Large SUVs. Nissan reintroduced the Armada for the 2017 model year, and it has a quiet ride, above-average cabin quality, a powerful engine, and spacious second-row seats. However, the front seats are less roomy than in rival SUVs, and the infotainment system feels a step behind many rival systems.

Pros
Powerful engine
Quiet ride
Quality cabin materials
Sprawling second-row seats

Cons
Antiquated infotainment system
Subpar cargo space
Disappointing first- and third-row seats

By:

After rotting on the vine for years, the 2017 Nissan Armada's redesign brings it upscale and makes it competitive with its recently updated truck-based full-size SUV rivals.
With the 2017 Armada, Nissan has adopted what is basically a U.S. version of the global Nissan Patrol SUV. The new Armada is a soul mate of the Infiniti QX80 once again, with a body-on-frame design and its eight-passenger seating. To distinguish it from the QX80, it gets new styling and new engineering, plus additional safety features.

Pros
More modern looks
Quiet cabin
Ready power
Good choice for towing
Room for people and their stuff

Cons
Thirsty
Big and heavy
Slow steering
Tight third-row seat

By:

The redesigned 2017 Nissan Armada is a substantial improvement over the vehicle it replaces. If you're looking for a big three-row SUV that can tow and venture off the beaten path but also comfortably handle the daily urban grind, the new Armada will be a great choice.
After a one-year hiatus, the Nissan Armada is back for 2017. Fully redesigned, it boasts a higher quality interior, a more powerful V8 engine and a new, more chiseled look for its exterior styling.

Pros
Higher-quality cabin that betters most competitors
Smooth and quiet V8 engine
More comfortable and less trucklike to drive than some rival SUVs
Plenty of ground clearance for off-road adventures.

Cons
Fuel economy is poor, even for this class of vehicle
Third-row seat is less spacious and comfortable than those of some SUV and crossover rivals
Heavy steering in parking lots.
