The striking, third-generation Nissan Murano serves up a decidedly premium interior feel. While the curvy, swoopy concept-car like styling impedes outward visibility, the Murano is otherwise easy to live with. Interior accommodations are generous, with easy access and mostly simple-to-use controls, including a well-designed touch-screen infotainment system. The plush cabin is impressively finished and quiet.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"The 2016 Murano has excellent acceleration and handling."

ALLAN F., OH (2016 Nissan Murano)

"My Murano has Wisconsin forward breaking. It also has warning lights for your blind spots. I have Parkinson's disease. It is unlikely that I would be able to drive to the extent that I do without the forward breaking and cruise control. Additionally, I was in a car accident in 2015, and without the warning lights for blind spots, I would not have been able to drive. Additionally, the car handles like a dream"

HELEN B., TX (2016 Nissan Murano)

"Very quiet ride. Very roomy."

Anonymous, IL (2016 Nissan Murano)

"The ride is quiet and smooth. The climate control responds quickly, and it is quiet. The seats are very comfortable -- they just seem to wrap around me, while providing lumbar support. I wish air conditioned or ventilated seats had been an option on the SL model."

Anonymous, GA (2016 Nissan Murano)

"Seating is very comfortable"

WILLIAM P., MD (2016 Nissan Murano)

"Lumbar is not affective ,simply to smal and to high up installed for a woman like me at 5'2 it is ineffective because it hits to high up in back instead of lumbar region were it should be perdruding like my previous vehicle."

DORA A., FL (2016 Nissan Murano)

"Seats are very comfortable."

Anonymous, MA (2016 Nissan Murano)

"Insufficient driver's legroom. There is more legroom in the Altima than in the Murano. There was a small storage area (shelf) under the dash (below the radio and climate controls) on prior Murano models. It's been removed in 2016 which was a bad move. That was a very convenient storage area for phones, etc. while driving."

Anonymous, TX (2016 Nissan Murano)
