Editor's Overview

Nissan describes the 2016 Murano as a “social lounge” and who are we to disagree? This is not, exactly, a family SUV, but aimed more at style-conscious adults looking for supple comfort, quiet refinement, a full complement of features, driving ease, assured capability, peace of mind and all at a reasonable price.

Great loading space, great steering wheel!

I can't say we had any problems, so far, even though we bought it used. We only had to do regular oil change, changed tires and we've been advised, since it's an all wheel drive, to rotate tires at every oil change (we do it every 5000 miles) since this will double the life length of the tires. I can't think of anything else, right now

Exceptional performance vehicle.

Tightly made, quality vehicle. Extremely reliable. Comfortable seats and smooth riding. Features include safety features including warnings for swerving and braking. Excellent sound system. Very roomy with great storage in back including seats that lay flat. Heated and air conditioned seats. Multiple cameras including backup camera.

- Regina C

Est features of the murano.

I love the comfortable ride and the style. The car has just the right amount of safety features and technology to help the driver see the blind spot and change lanes safely. The visibility is good and I like the heat/cooling seats. The rear seats go down for added space i. The trunk for transporting plants and gardening supplies.
