Safety ratings aren't quite top-notch for the Murano, although it does include an impressive list of standard safety features.

For 2013, the Murano gets newly optional active-safety systems: Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, and Lane Departure Warning systems. All are included with the Platinum Edition or SL Navigation Package, and should help the visibility issues that the curvier body design introduces.

Otherwise the Murano has earned a mix of four- and five-star ratings in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing, and mostly 'good' ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), except for a 'marginal' rating in the roof-strength category--related to the likelihood of rollover injury.

All the other safety equipment you'd expect in this class is standard, including anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, front side airbags, and side-curtain bags, plus active front head restraints.

When changing lanes or backing up, outward visibility can be a bit obscured by the sloping roofline and thick rear pillar.

Conclusion

Safety features are respectable, even though the Murano's safety ratings haven't been class-leading.

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.
