Depending on which safety agency you check with, the 2010 Nissan Murano either gets decent or great scores, but all the expected safety features are included.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the 2009 Nissan Murano earns a four-star rating for front crash protection—actually average with the way today's vehicles are rated—and a five-star rating for side-impact protection. The agency also gives the Murano a four-star rollover rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ranks the 2009 Nissan Murano a Top Safety Pick, as it scored a “good” rating in all crash tests and offers standard stability control.

Cars.com adds that the Murano’s curtain airbags “are designed to deploy in the event of a rollover, too.” MyRide notes the Murano’s impressive list of standard safety features, such as anti-lock brakes and its available all-wheel-drive system. The Murano also has curtain airbags and standard tire-pressure monitors, and Edmunds.com reports that active front head restraints are standard features.

According to ConsumerGuide, visibility is good to the front, but to the rear, the Murano’s sloping roofline cuts into sight lines.

Conclusion

The 2010 Nissan Murano has imperfect crash-test scores, but it's well-equipped in the safety department.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
