Reviews are in for the 2021 Nissan Murano and they're excellent! Here's what the experts are saying about this popular midsize SUV…

MotorTrend: #7 in midsize SUVs/ MotorTrend score 7.2/10

“Since it debuted as a 2003 model, the Nissan Murano has offered bold styling and spacious for five in a midsize SUV package. Now in its third generation, Nissan's curvaceous utility vehicle offers a generous list of standard features and an interior you can upgrade with extras like heated and ventilated front seats, as well as quilted leather upholstery. For 2021, the Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of driver assistance features are now standard on all Muranos.”

“Cushy seats and a quiet cabin create a relaxed driving experience, ideal for long drives especially when you consider the supple ride.”

“The 2021 Murano mates a CVT automatic to a 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 260-HP and 240 lb-ft of torque. There's no fuel economy penalty for selecting AWD; EPA fuel economy ratings are 20/28 mpg city/highway with FWD or AWD.”

“The Nissan Murano received a Good score in six crashworthiness tests (Good is the highest possible score). On the IIHS' front crash prevention test, the Murano received a Superior rating on the vehicle-to-vehicle category (Superior is the highest possible score).”

U.S. News: Finalist 2021 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money/ #17 in midsize SUVs/ U.S. News Score 7.3/10

“The 2021 Nissan Murano's solid combination of quality and value helped make it a finalist for our 2021 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money award. It has a spacious five-seat interior, a user-friendly infotainment system, and a gentle ride, making it a relaxing SUV to drive day in and day out. Its V6 engine is peppy, and it returns good fuel economy. Several active safety features come standard too, like blind-spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking.”

“The biggest difference between the 2020 and 2021 Murano is the addition of some standard safety features for 2021. Blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic high-beam headlights come standard in every 2021 Murano. All of these features were previously optional.”

“The V6 (engine) feels muscular and does a fine job of hauling the Murano around town. Off-the-line acceleration is smooth and reasonably brisk.”

Edmunds: 7.1/10 Score

“You want more space and power than a Rogue can provide without upgrading to Nissan's three-row Pathfinder. If so, there's the 2021 Nissan Murano. This five-passenger midsize crossover SUV comes with a standard V6 engine that provides snappy acceleration that the Rogue can only dream of. Its smaller size also makes it more agile and easier to maneuver in a crowded parking lot than the Pathfinder.”


“The 2021 Murano is a good pick for an SUV buyer who values comfort, style, and fuel economy over the last word in practicality. But while this Nissan does fall short on some rivals in its utility, it shines in overall refinement, safety features, and distinctive curb appeal.”

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: 5 Stars (out of a possible five stars) *The Murano earned five stars in the frontal and side crash tests, as well as four stars in the rollover test.
