Nissan just announced pricing for the 2018 Murano and while the SUV’s price has gone up, so too has its list of advanced safety features. A base 2018 Murano with front-wheel drive carries a starting price of $31,525, including the $975 destination and handling fee. That's $780 more than the short-lived 2017.5 Murano's starting price.

But with the price increase, the Murano adds forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking as standard throughout the entire lineup – that's a big win. Moving up to the $34,825 SV trim adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert as standard. To get adaptive cruise control on the SV trims will require opting for the Premium Package, which was standard on last year’s SL and Platinum trims.

Adaptive cruise is now standard on the $39,225 SL trim, as is a power liftgate, while the range-topping, $42,955 Platinum trim comes with all of the available safety features and a dual-panel moonroof.

All Murano trims offer a revised center console design that the automaker claims improves accessibility and storage. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard on all Murano and controlled through an eight-inch color display.

All-wheel drive variants are available across the range and add $1,600 to the price tag.
