Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Arona is perfectly ok, but Seat found it too easy to leap on the small-crossover bandwagon. They just faxed it in. Get a Leon instead.

Pros
Decent chassis,
good infotainment system and tech

Cons
Updated cabin still a little drab,
trim levels restrict your kit choices

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Looks great
Well equipped across the range
Nice and easy to drive

Cons
Tight on space for rear passengers
Lags behind on boot space
Some cheap-feeling interior bits

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.

Pros
Interior highlighted by high-quality materials and unique design
Spacious rear seating
Front seats are exceptionally comfortable

Cons
Modest cargo capacity limits practicality
Can't tow heavy weekend toys like some competitors
Stylish exterior design creates compromised outward visibility

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.
