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

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

For 2019, Infiniti has simplified the Q50's trim levels, offering just one version of the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder (available with either rear- or all-wheel drive).Streamlined model lineup.Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are now standard.

Interior design looks dated and plain
Allows significant road noise into the cabin
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are unavailable
