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.
