Overview

What's New in the 2015 Nissan Murano?

The Murano is all new for 2015. Highlights include better fuel economy and a more luxurious interior, plus more high-tech options.  

Which Murano is the Best?

If you can live without a power driver's seat, panoramic sunroof and the available safety features to help with blind spot detection and collision warning, we think the base S model is a great value. Even with all-wheel drive, the price still stays right around $35,000. If you can't live without the goodies mentioned above, go for the Platinum with the Technology Package. It's only about $2,000 more than the SL, and at this price point the difference in your monthly payment will hardly be noticeable. Find a Nissan Murano for sale

Competition

2015 Nissan Murano vs the competition

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport-- The Santa Fe Sport can match the Murano for comfort, features and style, but its base 4-cylinder engine is weak, and the optional turbocharged 4-cylinder isn't all that much better. Its fuel economy is also rather poor.

2015 Ford Edge -- The Edge is also new this year, with a bit more interior room and the choice of three powerful engines. Fuel economy is on par with the Murano, but the Edge's base price is about $2,000 less than the Nissan.

2015 Kia Sorento -- The Sorento has a lower base price, a more powerful V6 engine and the option of a third-row seat. The Sorento isn't as modern looking as the Murano, however, but it does have a better standard warranty.

Used Lexus RX 350 -- For about the same price as a Murano SL or Platinum, you can pick up a nice 2012-2014 Lexus RX 350. Go with a certified pre-owned vehicle, and you'll get a car that has 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.
