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

New TRD Sport trim level.

Pros
Impressive off-road capability
Wide variety of configurations to suit many buyers
Versatile cargo area, especially with the optional slide-out floor

Cons
Choppy ride quality compared with more modern crossover SUVs
V6 engine is not particularly fuel-efficient
Tall step-in height makes for awkward entry and exit

For 2022, the 4Runner family welcomes a new TRD Sport model, which for the longest time has only been offered on its pickup counterpart, the Toyota Tacoma. The 4Runner TRD Sport isn't as sporty as its 20-inch wheels, hood scoop, and Sport badges suggest, but unlike most other models except for the more luxurious Limited, it features adaptive dampers that are designed to improve body control. Inside, the TRD Sport features faux-leather upholstery instead of cloth. All 2022 4Runners now illuminate the road with LED high-beams.

Pros
Actually able to excel off-road,
packed with standard driver-assistance tech,
inside boasts generous passenger and cargo space.

Cons
Fuel economy isn't great,
interior materials are unimpressive,
not nearly as refined as newer mid-size SUVs.

By:
