Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Nissan has given the Murano's safety game a boost for 2021 by making its previously optional suite of driver-assistance features standard across the range. Called Safety Shield 360, this package of features includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beams, among others. Gone is the SV Premium package and in its place Nissan will offer the Special Edition package, which includes a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree exterior camera system, faux-leather upholstery, heated front seats, and 20-inch wheels.

PROS
Bold styling, well-appointed interior, lots of standard driver-assistance tech.

CONS
Blasé driving dynamics, CVT is unrefined, low towing capacity.

The 2021 Nissan Murano’s windswept shape still looks good and safety is strong, but it’s showing its age.

PROS
Unique style
Comfy front seats
Plush ride
Lots of active safety gear

CONS
So-so cargo capacity
Interior and tech show their age
Surprisingly thirsty
Not as well-equipped as some rivals

The 2021 Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is an all-new variant of the recently redesigned Ford Escape.

Pros

Roomy and comfortable seating
Easy-to-use controls

No all-wheel-drive option
Slightly less cargo and rear-seat space than standard Escape
