2022 Nissan Murano vs. Its Competition

2022 Nissan Murano
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The five-seat Murano is one of the older designs in its niche, but still merits consideration against lots of fresher and compelling rivals.

The Toyota Venza is a frugal choice thanks to its hybrid powertrains, and it has classy lines that will grab attention.

If you don’t need a third row of seats but want decent stretch-out room, the Hyundai Santa Fe is an especially strong choice.

You’ll spend more for a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but this evergreen off-roader remains a favorite, especially now that it’s been redesigned and has plug-in hybrid power on the way.

The Honda Passport is essentially a shorter Pilot, and while it’s light on charm it is spacious and well-equipped.

Ford’s Edge delivers good turbo power and sportier moves than some rivals.
