The Nissan Murano really squares off best against the Ford Edge.
Neither model goes after family buyers and both deliver nearly luxury-level features inside and out.
They've both targeted the tremendously successful Lexus RX, which costs more—but also generally feels like it's worth the extra coin.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is also a rare five-seat SUV or crossover, and while it's capable off-road, it is a great on-road vehicle as well.
And from the Acura camp, the RDX and MDX essentially split the difference; the RDX is a five-seater at a lower price point with fewer luxuries, but the classy MDX is larger and pricier than the Murano.
