The 2020 Nissan Murano comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.Advanced safety features now standard on SV trim and above.These same features are now optional on all other Murano models.

For 2020, Nissan makes only minor changes to the Murano lineup. This includes expanding the availability of its suite of safety and driver assists—called Nissan Safety Shield 360—to all models. The Murano SV now has standard adaptive cruise control, heated exterior mirrors, and rear parking sensors. The SL model adds traffic-sign recognition and the Platinum has a new leather-wrapped steering wheel. Super Black joins the list of paint colors.

Pros
Unmistakable appearance, luxurious interior, every model has cutting-edge content.

Cons
Indifferent driving experience, transmission exacerbates engine noise, minimal tow rating.

For 2019, the QX30 merely adds new option packages for the Luxe model. These include the Navigation package with Infiniti's InTouch services that allow users to unlock and lock the doors and schedule maintenance remotely using a smartphone app, and the 19-inch Wheel package that adds—you guessed it—19-inch Gun Metallic wheels rolling on run-flat summer tires. Otherwise, the QX30 lineup carries over unchanged.

Pros
Concept-car styling,
nicely crafted interior,
Sport model truly feels sporty.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
cramped cabin,
fully loaded versions are pricey.
