The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior. If you don't require a third-row seat, the 2008 Ford Edge is a fashionable, satisfying alternative in the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers.
