What’s Under the Hood of the 2017 Nissan Murano?

The old adage - you get what you pay for - remains true when you consider this 2017 Nissan Murano vs 2017 Honda CR-V comparison. With a reputation for unrivaled quality that goes hand in hand with an incredible array of standard features, the Nissan Murano is worth the price of admission. Standard Nissan Murano S editions start at an affordable $29,770 with overwhelming power and a wealth of features that the Honda CR-V cannot match.

In a class that puts an emphasis on fuel economy, the 2017 Nissan Murano stands out with a potent powertrain that provides a brilliant combination of power and efficiency. At the heart of the Nissan Murano design resides a 260-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine that manufactures 240 pound-feet of torque. Married to a signature Nissan Xtronic CVT® continuously variable transmission, the Nissan Murano still makes 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Available Intuitive All-Wheel Drive will amplify your driving experience when faced with poor weather or road conditions.

Honda CR-V models counter with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that provide lackluster power numbers by comparison. Standard Honda CR-V editions feature a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pairs with a continuously variable transmission to make 32 mpg on the highway. An upgrade to the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder provides a meager boost in performance to 190 horsepower with improved fuel economy.

With frugal fuel-economy specs, the 2017 Honda CR-V is an impressive option, although it falls well short of the Nissan Murano in terms of power and performance. Another advantage that the Nissan Murano possesses is a long list of high-end features that impact safety and convenience. Equipped with a standard seven-inch touchscreen display and rearview camera, the base Nissan Murano makes peerless entertainment just one touch away and improves safety with a rearview camera - elements that cost extra when you opt for the Honda CR-V.
