2018 Nissan Murano OVERVIEW

Although the Nissan Murano last saw a major revision in 2015, continuous updates to the feature content have resulted in a well equipped vehicle, even in base trim form. The progressively shaped exterior continues to stand-out while the interior’s smooth design and no fuss powertrain work to deliver a relaxed and comfortable overall feeling.

What's New for 2018

Across each of the four trim levels, the Murano receives increased levels of standard equipment, ranging from safety to entertainment to creature comforts.

Choosing Your Nissan Murano

The Murano is available in S, SV, SL, and Platinum with significant content differences among them.

Powering all Muranos is a 3.5-liter V6 that is mated to a continuously variable transmission. The engine puts out 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque and is routed through an optional, $1,600 all-wheel drive system. Front wheel drive is standard. There is no fuel economy for choosing all-wheel drive so all Muranos are EPA rated 21 miles per gallon city, 28 highway, and 24 combined.


The base S trim is $31,525 (including a $975 destination fee) and for that it comes well equipped. New for 2018 is an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD radio, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. Additionally, SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link, which can provide fuel prices, weather, and sports scores, is also included with an initial trial period. A large seven-inch color screen in the gauge cluster displays turn-by-turn directions, audio information, and more.

Gaining entry is fairly easy with Nissan’s proximity key although it still requires pressing a button on the door handle. Push-button start is also standard. Once inside, the comfortable Zero Gravity seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and upscale interior materials provide a comfortable and open space.

LED daytime running lights and taillights create unique lighting signatures for the Murano while 18-inch alloy wheels, body-color mirrors with integrated turn signals, and a black finish on the headlight housing keep the exterior looking up to date.

Active safety tech includes an forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. A rearview camera is standard.

There are no significant packages offered on this base trim although, a wifi hotspot and remote engine start are available as dealer-installed accessories.


The SV trim, $34,825, receives upgrades in the areas of exterior, interior, and safety.

A ten-way power adjustable driver’s seat (and four-way power passenger seat), auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated Homelink technology, leather wrapped steering wheel, and a remote engine start system are all newly standard equipment. The exterior gains fog lights and black roof rails.

Active safety features now include blind spot warning with rear cross traffic alert.

The Premium Package ($2,790) is not inexpensive but includes some desirable features, like adaptive cruise control, surround-view cameras, a driver alertness monitoring system, heated mirrors, dark 18-inch wheels, a panoramic moonroof, heated front seats, and an 11-speaker Bose premium audio system.


The SL trim, $39,225, builds on the SV trim and adds active cruise control, surround view cameras, heated leather seats and mirrors, a motion activated power tailgate, driver’s seat position memory, ambient interior lighting, and a Bose audio system. New this year are standard heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. The Moonroof Package features a panoramic moonroof for $1,420.

Also new for 2018 is the Midnight Edition styling package for $1,395. As the name suggests, this dark styling theme includes black 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents and mirror housings, black roof rails, and black splash guards.


The Murano’s most luxurious trim, priced at $42,995, features all of the previously optional equipment (save for the Midnight Edition package) and adds ventilated front seats, 20-inch wheels, power tilt and telescopic steering (with memory position system integration), LED headlights, and a power folding second-row seats. Nissan’s connected services, which can work through Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant, can be used to start the Murano remotely, control the locks, lights, and horn, schedule dealer services, and can also be used to set up customizable alerts to monitor the vehicle’s activity such as position and speed.

There are no available option packages featured on this trim level.

CarsDirect Tip

Even though the base S trim is well equipped, the SV trim with the Premium Package brings desirable safety and convenience features that help solidify the Murano as a competent, stylish family crossover.
