2016 Infiniti QX80

One of the most luxurious and roomy SUV’s on the market!

2015 Nissan Murano

The Murano is categorized as an SUV or Crossover vehicle. The 2015 Nissan Murano is one of, if not, the best looking vehicle in its segment on the market today. It displays a futuristic aura with a bold and tasteful design, and looks good from virtually every viewing angle. The overall design language lends a feeling of uniqueness and exclusivity in its class.

The performance is adequate as far as acceleration and handling goes, but there are some circumstances such as passing on a grade, where more power would certainly be a plus. The ride quality is smooth, stable and well planted, with the steering providing a positive feel.

The powertrain, a 260-HP 3.5-L V-6 engine mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) carries over, but fuel economy numbers are much improved. The new Murano is EPA rated to 21/28 city/highway MPG; in our mixed driving, we averaged a very respectable 25 MPG.

The NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats deliver excellent support along with a pleasing level of comfort.

Overall, the Third generation Nissan Murano certainly seems to reset the standard bar level in the midsize crossover segment. The content level is impressive even in the Base S trim, while the flagship Platinum level leave little to be desired.

Price as Tested: $43,745.
