Expert Quotes:

There are even rear-facing air vents mounted in the B-pillars. It's thoughtful touches like these that set this Nissan apart from the crossover status quo.
Edmunds

wide seat backs could use more side bolstering, as the available leather seats can be slippery in turns
Consumer Guide

plenty of soft-touch materials on display along with pleasing aluminum accents, as well as a boatload of available luxury features
Car and Driver



The 2014 Nissan Murano is what it should be: a comfortable, useful space. It also goes a little bit farther than many crossovers, presenting a look and feel that's more premium than much of the competition.

The front seats in the Murano are particularly comfortable, even across a wide range of body types and sizes. Taller occupants will note that the sunroof does cut into headroom, and rear-seat use is best reserved for two people rather than the theoretical maximum of three, but on the whole, it's a well-executed cabin space.

Nissan's choice to put styling first with the Murano does come with some drawbacks, however; there's just not much space behind the already tight second row, and even with the rear seat folded down, the unusual shape and high cargo floor compromise its utility as a load bay even further.

That folding second-row seatback can be had in power-operated form on higher-trim models, however, and a power liftgate is also available. Unless you have difficulty reaching that high, however, the bulk and size of the Murano's hatch doesn't really make the power liftgate a must-have feature.

Quality, fit, and finish of materials throughout the cabin are generally very good, on par with the Maxima sedan in most respects, and in others, as good as as luxury-brand alternative. Trims and materials feel as good as they look, and the cabin is well-insulated against both road and wind noise.

Conclusion

Though the design-first exterior compromises cargo space a bit, the 2014 Murano's cabin is comfortable and well-made.

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.
