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.

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Handles very nimbly and agile while not compromising on comfort and quiet - an EXCELLENT automobile in ALL respects and QUITE A VALUE for the money - especially when compared to the Luxury SUV models which are in the marketplace."

James B., FL (2018 Nissan Murano)

"The automatic speed control"

Anonymous, MN (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Accelerates and handles extremely well."

Anonymous, IL (2018 Nissan Murano)

"I can beat any car on the road!!"

Judy A., TX (2018 Nissan Murano)

"The Cruise ONLY works when the Automatic Emergency Braking feature is enabled. Unfortunately, during the first several months the AEB would intermittently report an error and therefore disable the Cruise. The service department was frustrating. First they said dirt on the sensor. Two more trips where they couldn't detect problem. The fourth trip they were able to identify the problem and then a fifth trip to make the repair."

Anonymous, LA (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Smooth acceleration"

Anonymous, WI (2018 Nissan Murano)

Anonymous, CA (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Great acceleration. Really steps out. It has been said the handling is a bit loose. I don’t feel that. I really like the steering feels. Really good turning radius."

Carole D., FL (2018 Nissan Murano)

"The All Wheel Drive and large tires offer an outstanding ride. The seats and noise level in the cabin are excellent and feel like a luxury car."

David W., NJ (2018 Nissan Murano)

"The seats are luxury feeling and the heat/ventilation is a fetrue I will look for from now on whe purchasing a new vehicle!"

Michael H., VA (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Plenty of adjustments available to customize seat. Inside noise is minimal, ride is exceedingly smooth"

Mark A., TN (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Never had a transmission this smooth. Very comfortable seating"

Anonymous, WI (2018 Nissan Murano)

"It's smooth as silk because of the nitrogen in the tires."

Judy A., TX (2018 Nissan Murano)

"I have had a serious back operation (fused from s1-t10) and I can drive easily for long distances in this car with no pain. Also my husband has a severe hearing disability and previous cars we’ve owned we have not been able to talk. He can hear me in the Murano because it’s a quiet ride. The only thing I’d change is the location of the seat heater buttons. When there are drinks in the cup holder it’s hard to get to them and they are small for old people’s arthritic fingers. I love this car very much though. Easy to get in and out of."

Steve W., VA (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Our family has several tall drivers, including one that is 6'5. This was the most comfortable AWD vehicle for us."

"Very comfortable. Zero gravity seats."

Craig P., FL (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Seats very comfortable however the front seat heat and cooling are not up to par with this vehicle. Both heating and cooling are slow before you feel anything."

Patrick C., WA (2018 Nissan Murano)

"I only purchased this vehicle last week, but the luxury leather seating and overall amazing smooth ride were two of the immediate favourites."

Anonymous, ON (2018 Nissan Murano)

"This Vehicle is as quiet and comfortable as other LUXURY SUV models costing over $20K Higher. I'd put the Murano up against a Mercedes Benz, BMW, or Lexus for overall comfort, quiet and smoothness of ride"

James B., FL (2018 Nissan Murano)

"Seats and ride are great. The road noise is still there. Overall, I am very happy with our Murano!"

F A., VA (2018 Nissan Murano)

"The best layout and comfort of any car we’ve ever had"

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
