The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Nissan Murano isn't the most practical choice among crossovers, but it's a gem for style and refinement. Provided you don't need a third-row seat, the 2011 Ford Edge is at last, at the leading edge of mid-size crossovers, with one of the best driver interfaces in the business.
