Overview

The Nissan Murano is a stylish midsize SUV with room for five. Introduced in 2003, the third-generation debuted in 2015. The current model is available in four trims with standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive.

What's New for 2017

Light changes herald this generation SUV’s third model year. New this year is Apple CarPlay availability, arriving later in the model year.

Nissan’s Driver Attention Alert system, standard on the SL and Premium trims, is now available as part of an SV Driver Assistance package. The alert system provides audible and visual warnings if it senses the driver may not be attentive.

Choosing Your Nissan Murano

Buyers can choose between S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim or grade levels in the 2017 Murano.

Standard features include halogen headlamps, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels wrapped in all-season tires, rear tow hooks, and dual folding side mirrors. Cloth seats, power accessories, a climate control system, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a seven-inch color display are standard.

Safety features include a rearview monitor, a suite of airbags including a driver’s knee airbag, and hill start assist.

All models are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine making 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The EPA rates this model at 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

A hybrid version, introduced in 2016, is marketed separately.

Nissan Murano

S

The Murano S is the base model priced at $30,640 (destination included). Add $1,600 for all-wheel drive. This model comes with each of the standard items listed earlier. Options available include HD radio, a rear USB port, and navigation, each item included as part of an available navigation package.

Nissan Murano

SV

Priced from $33,700, the Murano SV brings in such features as a remote engine start system, intelligent climate control, an eight-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, front, and rear passenger connection ports, and NissanConnect with Apple CarPlay and navigation. All-wheel drive models start at $35,300. The SV also adds halogen front fog lights, black roof rails, and introduces such options as adjustable cross bars, a dual panoramic moonroof, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, and an around view monitor.

Nissan Murano

SL

Nissan prices the 2017 Murano SL from $38,030 ($39,630 for all-wheel drive). This grade brings in leather-appointed and heated front seats, an around-view monitor, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, and a power liftgate. You’ll also find heated side mirrors, ambient lighting, and such safety features as blind spot warning, moving object detection, and rear cross traffic alert. Additional safety features and a power panoramic moonroof are part of an available technology package.

Nissan Murano

Platinum

The top-of-the-range Murano Platinum costs $40,080 or $41,680 for all-wheel drive. At this price point, you’ll find LED beam headlights, 20-inch machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, heated and cooled front seats, and a heated steering wheel as well as heated rear seats. This model also adds a power tilt and telescopic steering column, power flip rear seats, and upgraded NissanConnect services. A technology package is also available.

CarsDirect Tip

The sleek and evocative styling of the Murano is reason alone to consider this model. With the navigation package available at the S trim level, even the base grade is worth considering. If you need something slightly larger, then the Nissan Pathfinder should be considered.

Launched nearly 15 years ago, Nissan’s five-passenger Murano crossover is now in its third generation and ranks among the most contemporary and distinctively-designed models in the segment. Daringly stylish and lushly comfortable, it’s little-changed for 2017, apart from Apple CarPlay availability.

Pricing and Equipment

Starting at $30,720 (destination charge included) as a 2017.5 model, the Murano comes in S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. Every Murano comes standard with a 3.5-liter, 260-horsepower V6, which works with a continuously variable transmission – the only powertrain decision owners need to make is whether they want the optional, $1,600 all-wheel-drive system.

The Murano SL ($38,240) includes:

  • Heated, leather-upholstered, powered front seats with driver's memory
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Foglamps
  • Navigation
  • Bose 11-speaker audio
  • Apple CarPlay
  • 8.0-inch touchscreen

SL and Platinum versions include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and a surround-view camera system with moving object detection. Adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking are optional. A Midnight Edition of the Murano debuted during the 2017 model year.

Performance Pros

Nissan Murano
  • Splendid, gentle ride quality, unless 20-inch wheels – standard with Platinum trim – are mounted. The Murano’s suspension effectively irons out much of the worst pavement surfaces.
  • Predictable handling and easygoing feel stem from the Murano’s car-like foundation.
  • Steering feels relaxed when moving forward, tightening appropriately while rolling through curves.
  • Acceleration is peppier than we expected when starting off, while quickly-needed passing power is surprisingly strong – not the typical characteristics of CVTs. When accelerating swiftly, the CVT’s virtual “gears” mimic a conventional automatic transmission, but engine speed stays low when taking it easy on the gas pedal.

Performance Cons

  • Ride can feel a little too soft and mannerly to suit some folks’ tastes.
  • Body lean can be an issue when cornering hastily.

Interior Pros

  • Excellent sound insulation results in a practically silent cabin, which exudes a serene, refined ambiance.
  • Classy interior design is clean, simple, and particularly well-organized. Control interfaces use actual buttons, where appropriate.
  • Driving position could hardly be better, and exemplary seat height eases entry/exit. Relatively low instrument panel excels for drivers of shorter stature.
  • Contoured “Zero Gravity” seats are comfortable for long journeys. Rear seats are among the most comfortable in the entire crossover league.

Interior Cons

  • Lower cushions of seats don’t provide quite enough thigh support to please taller drivers.
  • Seat comfort in the center rear position is minimal – a distressing defect found in plenty of vehicles nowadays, essentially turning five-passenger models into four-seaters.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

Even the S and SV trim levels are generously equipped, making them the value leaders of the group.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

Crash-test scores have been inconsistent. NHTSA gave the Murano five stars for side impact, but only four stars overall and in the frontal collision event. IIHS awarded Top Safety Pick status, but only for SL and Platinum trims that were equipped with automatic emergency braking.

The Bottom Line

Ride comfort and cabin quietness are Murano high points. Unlike some stylishly modern models, what might be dubbed the extroverted exterior doesn’t shrink passenger space. The SL trim level includes at least some active-safety features, with others optional.
