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.

Lexus introduced the Black Line Special Edition package for the F Sport models. It comes with black exterior accents, black 20-inch wheels, blue stitching for the leather interior, and either an Ultra White or Grecian Water (medium blue) paint job. More notably, ordering the Black Line Special Edition package also adds a two-piece set of Zero Halliburton luggage. Elsewhere, the RX receives a new interior color—Glazed Caramel—which replaces Noble Brown. Blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and power-folding exterior mirrors are all now standard. A wireless smartphone charging pad is now optional and the Performance package has been rechristened as the Handling package.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrains,
standard driver-assistance features,
silky-smooth ride quality.

Cons
Lazy driving demeanor,
relaxed acceleration,
fussy infotainment touchpad.
