Impressively quick acceleration
Comfortable and quiet ride
Generous cargo and passenger space

Cons
Very low handling capabilities
Longer-than-average braking distances
Disconnected steering feel
Uncomfortable front passenger seat

The all-new 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime has a potent powertrain and a comfortable, welcoming cabin with plenty of features. This vehicle does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested or rated for reliability.

Pros
Good all-electric driving range
Strong acceleration
Roomy, comfortable seats
Long list of features

Cons
Slightly outdated touch-screen graphics

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
