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

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

The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow.

Pros
Makes the most of its size
Lots of standard equipment
Great gas mileage
Shift it yourself, if you like
Composed, absorbent ride

Cons
Thin acceleration
Crash-test scores are mixed
Doesn’t offer latest safety tech
Road manners: meh

The 2018 Honda HR-V ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Honda HR-V has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Adult-friendly back seat
Versatile cargo area

Cons
Awkward available touch screen
Firm front seat cushions
Slow to reach highway speeds

By: 
usnews.com

Honda’s mini ute switches to 2018 with a new paint color—Aegean Blue Metallic—and a new dark-colored wheel design on EX and EX-L trims. Other than that, the HR-V sees no other changes, mechanical or otherwise.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrain,
cargo-hauling leader,
handsome styling.

Cons
Lackluster acceleration,
frustrating infotainment system,
short on small-item storage.
