The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's stylish and refined, but the 2012 Nissan Murano isn't the most space-efficient crossover. The 2012 Subaru Tribeca has excellent all-weather handling and top-notch safety, though it's fallen behind the curve in features and interior appointments.
