What's New in the 2020 Nissan Murano?

After receiving a face-lift for 2019, the Murano glides into 2020 pretty much unchanged. Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of active safety tech has been expanded to lower trims. Certain optional equipment is now standard on particular trims, while some option packages have been tweaked. Finally, "super black" has joined the Murano's exterior color palette. See the 2020 Nissan Murano models for sale near you

Which Murano is the Best?

When looking for any new car, it's generally worth considering a middle-of-the-pack trim level first. In the case of the Murano, these are the SV and SL trims. Both come with active safety features like automatic emergency braking and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, plus a power-operated driver's seat, remote start and automatic climate control. The SL adds leather seating, a 360-degree camera system and Bose audio, among a few other things. Given that every Murano offers the same infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, we'd probably opt for the SV trim. If you live in a climate that sees snow, you may be glad if you have AWD. Otherwise, we'd probably skip it and save the $1,600. Find a Nissan Murano for sale

2020 Nissan Murano vs the competition

2020 Honda Passport -- The new Pilot-derived Passport is pretty great. As far as 5-passenger, car-based midsize SUVs go, the Passport offers huge interior space and great, functional features, making it one of the more utility-oriented offerings in the segment and a polar opposite from the style-focused Murano.

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe -- The Santa Fe can match the Murano for comfort, features and style, but its base 4-cylinder engine isn't that powerful, and the optional turbocharged 4-cylinder still falls short of the Murano's standard horsepower. The AWD Murano gets much better fuel economy than its Santa Fe Sport counterpart, but the Hyundai has a better warranty.

2020 Ford Edge -- The Edge offers less polarizing styling and a bit more interior room, plus the choice of three powerful engines. The performance-oriented Edge ST offers something that no Murano can match.

2020 Kia Sorento -- The Sorento has a lower base price, a more powerful V6 engine and the option of a third-row seat. It doesn't look as modern as the Murano, but it does have a better standard warranty.

Used Lexus RX 350 -- For about the same price as a brand-new Murano SL or Platinum, buyers can pick up a nice 2016-2018 Lexus RX 350. Go with a certified pre-owned vehicle and you'll get a car that's been thoroughly inspected to Lexus' standards and comes with a warranty that lasts three years from your date of purchase or until the vehicle reaches 100,000 miles.
