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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"With the CVT transmission this car is very smooth to drive. Power from the 3.5 V6 is more than adequate. Handles very well although the ride seems more focused on comfort and quietness than sporty handling."

Alan V., IA (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Handling"

Anonymous, MN (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Love the handling -- my Murano has plenty of cargo room, and moves easily in and out of tight parking spaces. It gives plenty of acceleration when needed - as in, merging into heavy traffic."

Anonymous, VA (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Drives extremely nice."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Nissan Murano)

Dennis F., NJ (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Six cylinder motor provides very good acceleration via no shift transmission. Handling good with Michelin tires."

Don S., AL (2017 Nissan Murano)

"I love the way this car drives, it has great acceleration and handles well. There are blind spots where the side mirrors are and you have to get used to turning without hitting a curb in tight spots."

"The adaptive cruise control is great when traveling long distances on the highway."

Anonymous, ID (2017 Nissan Murano)

"The car came with one tire out of round , the vibration was felt throughout the car. The car handles well with good acceleration. The V-6 has plenty of power and climbs hills effortlessly. The best safety feature is the cruise control passive feature it works extremely well. The car did not come with backup sensors, which we have had in most of our previous cars. I installed the backup sensors on the car. The warning beeps are not loud for me, I am a senior with mild loss of hearing. They should be adjustable."

Robert Z., CA (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Excellent handling & speed control. Best engine in the auto business.cvt trans outdoes any normal gear & hilly roads no shifting feel at all. Owned three Muranos & no trans or car problems at all!!!"

Eugene J., AR (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Excellent handling in-town or on the highway. Easy to park. The 360 cameras make maneuvering a breeze. Good acceleration when necessary, love the cvt transmission. The intelligent cruise, blind spot and FEB system have saved me more than once. AWD works extremely well on rain slick roads and beach sand. Simply effortless to drive."

Roger H., TN (2017 Nissan Murano)

"It is a naturally aspirated V6 that runs on regular fuel, gives good performance and reliability and reasonable fuel economy."

Ray O., MB (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Acceleration is excellent. The Intelligent Cruise Control is fantastic, we love it."

Comfort

"All good, zero gravity seats are great, low noise level, smooth ride"

W B., MA (2017 Nissan Murano)

"Overall, the seats are comfortable but due to my back problems I'd prefer the seat back to be straighter and firmer. Also, the headrests push my head forward forcing my body into a less ergonomic position."

Carole O., CA (2017 Nissan Murano)
