2020 Nissan Murano vs. Its Competition

Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Ford Edge and Honda Passport are both in-betweeners, bridging the gap between compact and mid-size like the Murano.

While the Ford offers great luxury options and a sporty ST model, the Passport takes a more rugged approach with an adventure-oriented setup.

Hyundai’s Santa Fe offers style, great features, and a just-right size for less than the Murano in most forms.

Jeep’s Grand Cherokee is expensive and long in the tooth, but there’s a reason Americans buy them by the thousands each year.

Mazda’s stylish CX-9 has great interior quality and room for seven, but its infotainment system is among our least favorite.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Nissan Murano is stylish and sophisticated, but its powertrain and practicality leave something to be desired.
The 2020 Ford Edge crossover SUV splits differences nicely, between compact and mid-size, and value and luxury.
When the Pilot’s too big and the CR-V is too small, the 2020 Honda Passport two-row crossover SUV is just the ticket.
The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is a sure bet for safety, space, and swiftness.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee impresses with style and performance, but lags behind in safety and fuel economy.
The 2019 Mazda CX-9 delivers heavily on style, but it’s just adequate in other respects.
