2020 Nissan Murano Review
To get around Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton, you’ll need a dependable car. Many drivers prefer midsize SUVs that provide plenty of room for passengers or bulky items, yet are easy enough to handle on the road. The Nissan Murano remains a top choice for car buyers looking for a vehicle suitable for family vacations or carpooling to work. This comprehensive 2020 Nissan Murano review can help you determine if this car fits your needs.
The new Murano comes with just one engine, a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission that gives drivers a comfortable ride on city streets and sufficient acceleration on highways. The independent strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension help smooth out most road bumps.
While 4-wheel drive is standard on all trims, you can upgrade to all-wheel drive. For those drivers living in hilly neighborhoods, the Nissan features an anti-lock braking system and Hill Start Assist to help you keep control over your vehicle. The steering remains steady, even when you’re picking up speed. The Murano can tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.
Interior and Cargo Space
The 2020 Nissan Murano stands out from other crossover SUVs with its elegant interior. The vehicle seats up to five people, with plush seats and soft-touch materials providing additional comfort. For a more luxurious feel, the SL and Platinum trim levels feature leather seats and leather-wrapped steering wheels. Drivers can benefit from optional heated seats and sideview mirrors during the winter months.
The Murano also delivers plenty of cargo space for your suitcases or work equipment. Behind the second row, you’ll get 32.1 cubic feet of space, and with the second row folded down, you’ll get a maximum of 67 cubic feet.
Technology and Safety Features
The 2020 Nissan Murano gives drivers an excellent infotainment system in NissanConnect®. The system boasts a standard 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity, dual automatic climate control, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. With the navigation system and real-time traffic alerts displayed on-screen, you can find the best roads to reach your destination and take alternate routes if needed. Passengers can use the backseat USB ports to plug in their devices.
Nissan also makes safety a priority, so all 2020 Murano models except the base S trim come with Nissan Safety Shield® 360. This package includes essential tools such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, and driver attention alerts. Baby-seat sensors and backdoor alerts help prevent you from leaving your child inside a locked car.
