The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors. If you don't need a rugged SUV, the 2014 Toyota Venza is a practical, even stylish alternative with some strong wagon and hatchback leanings.
