The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.2
7.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2021 Nissan Murano’s windswept shape still looks good and safety is strong, but it’s showing its age. The 2021 Toyota Venza brings an upscale flair to the compact crossover class to go with its efficient and reasonably powerful hybrid powertrain.
