2017 Nissan Murano vs. 2017 Ford Edge: Compare Cars

Car shoppers who decide they want a stylish, roomy mid-size utility vehicle—one that drives like a car—and they don’t need a third row, or any rugged pretense, have two solid choices in the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano. And if they narrow priorities to vehicles that look conceived for adults—not just as rolling cribs and diaper bins—then the Murano and Edge stand atop an even smaller list.

We rate the Murano a 6.5 out of 10. The Edge outpoints it by a slim margin, at 6.8. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Edge skips third-row seats for better road manners, but it could stand a round of comfort and safety upgrades. The 2017 Nissan Murano is smooth and polished—and that may be just the ticket for buyers who want a high seating position and the availability of all-wheel drive.
