The Nissan Murano is a two-row crossover that competes with the Ford Edge, Honda Passport and Chevrolet Traverse.
In 2003, the Murano was one of the first ripples in what is now a giant wave of compact and midsize crossovers. The third-generation Murano debuted for the 2015 model year. The vehicle has been mildly refreshed for 2019 to include a new front-end design, new wheels, three new colors and additional standard safety features. The base S model comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, along with pedestrian detection and proximity-based keyless entry and start, but advanced safety features like blind-spot monitors and lane-departure alerts are reserved for higher trim levels.
