The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Murano lures in empty-nesters with its flamboyant new design, then hooks them with just the right mix of confident performance. The Toyota Venza gives up all SUV styling pretenses in favor of big-hatchback utility and a truly carlike atmosphere.
