The Car Connection's Take

7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Nissan Murano isn't the most practical choice among crossovers, but it's a gem for style and refinement. You won’t find much excitement or flair in the 2011 Toyota Venza, but it makes a lot of sense as an alternative to either a large sedan or a mid-size SUV.
