Nissan Murano vs. The Competition for Sale in West Springfield, MA

Overview

The 2020 Nissan Murano is a sleek and sporty coupe-inspired midsized crossover that not only looks great but comes packed with practical standard features. With its responsive V6 engine and comfortable cabin, the Murano is a great family vehicle, especially for those who like to get away. Of course, in such a crowded segment it must contend with the Ford Edge, Kia Sorento, Honda Passport, Toyota Highlander, and Jeep Cherokee. While each of these vehicles does its best to give the Murano a run for its money, they all fall short in some notable ways. So, if you’re searching for a new vehicle in this class but don’t know which one to go with, this page should help you put things into perspective.

Safety Features

The standard inclusion of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility driver-assist technology on all but the base Murano (on which it’s optional) makes occupants feel safer on the road. All 2020 Muranos get standard automatic emergency braking and intelligent forward collision warning. Compared to the forward collision warning in rival vehicles, though, Nissan’s is superior in that it can detect not just one car in front of you but two. By monitoring the distance and velocity of both vehicles, the Murano is able to detect potential hazards and alert you to take the necessary precautions. This technology is not available with any of the competitors mentioned on this page. Additionally, the Murano has an available intelligent around-view monitor that sends visual and audible alerts to let you know if there are any objects moving around your vehicle. Neither the Passport nor the Edge offers this technology.

The exterior side mirrors on the 2020 Nissan Murano have integrated LED turn signal indicators to help drivers in your blind spot see when you intend to change lanes or turn. These safety-enhancing indicators aren’t provided on the base models of the Ford Edge, Honda Passport, or Jeep Cherokee. What’s more, the base Passport and Cherokee both lack HD and satellite radio as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. All trim levels of the Murano have these desirable features, and while the Highlander gets a lot of these features, too, its starting MSRP is higher ($34,600) than the Murano’s ($31,530).


Spaciousness and Engine

The Murano provides more cargo space than the Sorento and Cherokee, with 32.1 cubic feet of storage area behind the second row. On the other hand, the Cherokee only yields 25.8 cu. ft. behind the second row. To top it off, the Murano’s base V6 engine also makes 260 horsepower, edging out the Edge’s 250 hp while easily beating out the Sorento (185 hp) and Cherokee (180 hp).
