2011 Nissan Murano Comfort & Quality

8.0
On Comfort & Quality
While the 2011 Nissan Murano is very satisfying in terms of styling and performance, space and utility are disappointments. The front seats are comfortable and adjustable for a wide range of drivers, the backseat has just enough legroom, and the seating position feels somewhat low. Three adults can fit across if need be, but the Murano is primarily a four-passenger vehicle.

Due to the roofline, the cargo area is a bit small with the second row up in place, and the cargo floor is higher than you might guess from the outside; but the back seat does fold forward easily—it's even power-operated on top models—for a nearly flat cargo floor. A power liftgate is also an option.

The Murano's cabin is very nicely appointed—on par with the Maxima sedan and feeling, in most respects, like a true luxury-brand vehicle. There's a high-quality feel in most of the materials and switchgear. Road noise is also well controlled for this type of vehicle, although the engine noise with the CVT can take some getting used to.

The 2011 Nissan Murano isn't especially roomy, but with beautiful design details and impressive refinement, it can feel like a true luxury vehicle.
