Editor's Overview

Roomy, comfortable and refined, the 2018 Nissan Murano fits in the center of Nissan’s extensive lineup of SUVs. Larger than the Rogue, but smaller than the Pathfinder, the new Nissan Murano is a 5-passenger midsize SUV with daring design, a luxurious interior and a powerful V6. A Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Murano competes with the Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Toyota Highlander.

Murano is reliable SUV for everyday use.

The Murano is very reliable and fun to drive. The cabin is nice, materials are high-grade, and everything is easily accessible for the driver. All passengers have a good amount of headspace and legroom, and the trunk has more than enough space to carry items, plus the back seat folds down very easily.

- Nick P

Comfy ride stylish great gas mileage.

No problems, this is the third one I have owned the most comfortable car I have ever driven or ridden in it is perfect for long road trips or quick trips to the store very stylish and great gas mileage I would highly recommend this car to anyone who likes to drive in comfort.

- Barbara H

This SUV is amazing, the ride is as smooth as its appearance.

I have had no problems with this vehicle. It is a very smooth ride. Though it is not a problem, but more of a preference, I wish the GPS had more route options. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoy the amount of passenger and storage space in this car (especially in the trunk).
