2023 Nissan Murano Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

The 2023 Nissan Murano, which was once the obvious and cutting-edge choice among midsize SUVs, is now barely scraping by on appearances. While those seeking tranquillity may enjoy its quiet cabin and comfortable ride, everyone else may find its drowsy driving qualities to be a bit of a bore. The 3.5-liter V-6 is the only engine available, and it produces plenty of power. The disadvantage is that it's coupled to a CVT, which eliminates all the enjoyment. The mid-size SUV market offers more affordability and usefulness as the competition has gotten really hard and advanced. Nissan hasn’t performed any notable upgrades on the Murano for 2023. The Murano not only feels out of date, but it also appears that way given the spectacular redesigns of the smaller Rogue, bigger Pathfinder, and the similarly sized completely electric Ariya. Although the Murano is still a fantastic value in its class, it will continue to lose market share to a variety of newer rivals, such as the Honda Passport, the Hyundai Santa Fe, and the Ford Edge.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The Nissan Murano is distinguished by its eye-catching external styling and plush interior. Additionally, it features a strong engine. But there is a price for that styling. The Murano appears larger than it is due to the sloping roofline, which also reduces rearview. Additionally, this SUV does not carry a strong towing capacity like what a few of its rivals offer.


Features

Nissan will not make any changes to the trim line and will not be introducing a new variant of the Murano for 2023. The lineup will be carried over while the pricing is revised and the base Murano will now start at $33,660 for the FWD variant while the fully loaded Platinum trim with the AWD will sell for $46,910. AWD option will be accessible on all trims for additional costs and there is also a Midnight Edition available for around $1,500 dollars over the SV trim which adds in blacked-out components like the 20-inch wheels, badges, and exterior accents. The Murano will feature an 8-inch touchscreen, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED headlights, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity by default along with a few more functions.

We Recommend

We believe that the SL trim is when this midsize SUV really starts to shine. It includes a hands-free liftgate, GPS, and an improved sound system in addition to replacing the faux leather upholstery seen in the SV. It is also recommended to pick the AWD variant as the handling feels much more planted and stable.

Release Date

There wouldn’t be a grand unveiling of the 2023 model as it’s pretty much going to be a carryover model. The 2023 Murano will hit the dealers towards the end of 2022.

Engine and Performance

All Murano variants have a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 260 horsepower under the hood. A CVT transmission is used in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, with the front-wheel drive being the default setup. Few Murano customers will frequently engage in the exercise of burying their foot in the accelerator, and the CVT spikes and retains engine rpm at that level, producing a loud, droning grumble from beneath the hood. On lengthy highway trips, where the powertrain disappears into the background and the ride is serene, the Murano excels. The Murano's suspension is optimized for comfort, making long drives a breeze. It smooths out even the worst potholes for a comfortable ride. With a low towing capacity of 1500 pounds, the Murano falls behind and suffers when needing to tow anything heavier.

Both Nissan and Honda produce higher power figures due to their larger engines. This is the reason why the Hyundai is much more affordable as it offers a smaller engine in comparison. The Nissan Murano is the only SUV here to use CVT transmission, making it slightly noisy at higher revs.

2023 Nissan Murano Ride and Handling

The Nissan Murano hasn’t changed much over the years and the drive hasn’t advanced when compared to what the rivals offer. The Murano won't amuse you along the route, but it will safely take you to the next intersection if the road is winding. On highways, the steering provides adequate stability, but on winding two lanes, it is uninteresting and uncommunicative. The car is more of a comfort rider but for those looking for an engaging vehicle to be behind the wheel of, the Murano may not be the answer.

2023 Nissan Murano Braking Performance

The brakes aren’t the most responsive or the sharpest. To get optimum stopping power, you really need to pound on the brakes, but other than that, the pedal feel is steady, and the actual braking capability is adequate. The brakes are adequately sized and since the Nissan Murano is a light vehicle, it is capable of stopping within short distances.

The Murano has the weight advantage and the lighter body helps the vehicle stop within an impressive 120 feet while traveling at 60mph. The Honda being the heaviest vehicle takes the longest distance to stop despite having larger brakes than the Nissan.

Fuel Economy

The Murano will have a 20 mpg city rating and a 28 mpg highway rating. Adding all-wheel drive has no negative effects on either rating. Real-world test results did slightly fall shorter than what was claimed but the difference isn’t drastic. Since the Murano comes with a larger engine than a few of its rivals, the fuel economy isn’t something the Nissan is very confident about. Nissan has also managed to equip the Murano with a large gas tank that gives the buyers hope and makes them confident in hitting cross-country routes. The claimed figures are rather impressive for its class, increasing the overall reliability of the Murano.

The Hyundai extracts more miles per gallon of fuel while the Honda covers more distance without refueling due to its larger tank. The Nissan closely follows in terms of the overall range and the Ford falls behind as the gas mileage figures are on the lower side and the gas tank the Edge carries is the smallest among the group.

Interior

The Murano's cabin is more opulent than the majority of Nissan cars and ranks among the nicest, best-equipped cabins in this segment. The Murano's dials and buttons are simple to operate. There is a lot of headroom and shoulder room, and it's simple to find a good driving posture. However, for a midsize SUV, the rear passenger legroom is a little restricted. It is simple to enter and exit because of the enormous doors and wide openings, but because of their size, precautions must be taken in confined spaces. The Murano's distinctive appearance also impairs its visibility. Small front and rear windows result from the large hood and sloping roofline. You must rely on the blind-spot warning system because the SUV feels larger than it is. The seats, door panels, and armrests of the Platinum trim are covered in soft leather. The dashboard's sweeping design is split by a border of dark teak-wood trim. It should come as no surprise that the Murano can only stow about nine carry-on luggage behind its back seat, while its competitors can fit more, given that its cargo bay is smaller than normal for its class.

The Nissan does not have the largest cabin but it sure is ample enough to accommodate passengers comfortably. The Hyundai carries the largest passenger room with massive legroom on both rows. Nissan falls behind the competition when it comes to cargo space while the Honda carries the largest storage area with over 10 cu-ft of space more than what is found in the Murano.

Some standout interior features on the 2023 Nissan Murano include

  • Heated steering wheel
  • Reclining rear seatbacks with center armrest
  • Driver’s seat memory function
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated mirrors
  • Simulated/Genuine leather upholstery

How intuitive is the 2023 Nissan Murano infotainment system?

All Murano models now come standard with an 8.0-inch color touchscreen running Nissan's NissanConnect infotainment system, which includes navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM with Travel Link weather and traffic updates. Both USB-A and USB-C connections are available in the Murano, and there are two of each on the back of the center console so passengers in the back seat may charge their cell phones. The music buffs get a 6-speaker audio setup as the default option but pick the higher trims and you’re welcomed by a Bose sound system with an 11-speaker configuration.

Some of the standout infotainment features on the 2023 Nissan Murano are

  • 8.0-inch touchscreen
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Voice recognition
  • 11-speaker Bose audio system
  • Sirius XM and traffic update
  • 4 USB ports
Exterior

The Nissan Murano stands out from the other cars on the rival list thanks to its distinctive design and style. The SUV comes with 18-inch wheels as standard, giving it a commanding presence on the road. Clean LED headlamps complete the front fascia look, making it look sporty and modern. Bigger 20-inch wheels are included on the SL and Platinum models, giving them a distinct stance. The majority of the exterior features, such as the grille, mirrors, lower bumpers, and roof rails, are covered in black on the Midnight Edition, which also includes 20-inch black wheels.

The Nissan Murano suffers when going off-road due to its low ground clearance and but its height is ideal for allowing occupants to step in and out without having to struggle. The Hyundai Santa Fe has the highest ground clearance, closely followed by the Ford Edge. However, Nissan might look like the biggest car here as it’s longer than its rivals.

Some of the standout exterior features include

  • Active grille shutter
  • LED headlights and taillights
  • Dual panel panoramic sunroof
  • 18/20-inch wheels
  • Automatic headlights
  • V-shaped grille
Safety

The enhanced safety features are usually impressive, and they normally function effectively. Smartly slowing down with the flow of traffic, the adaptive cruise control system is hesitant to pick up speed again. The 2023 model hasn’t received its safety ratings yet but the 2022 model scored 5-stars on NHTSA and the “Top Safety Pick +” label from IIHS despite being the oldest platform and design among its rivals.

Some of the standout safety features available with the 2023 Nissan Murano are

  • Forward collision warning
  • Blind-spot monitor
  • High beam assist
  • Rear automatic braking
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Intelligent lane intervention
Competition

2023 Nissan Murano vs 2023 Honda Passport

A popular three-row crossover we love is the Honda Pilot, and the Honda Passport is essentially a two-row Honda Pilot. Each has an incredibly pleasant ride, a roomy cabin, a well-done touchscreen interface, and a potent V6. When the Passport and Murano are directly compared, the Passport wins easily.

2023 Nissan Murano vs 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai is a more composed and mellowed-down SUV in terms of performance as it carries a smaller engine. This also makes the Hyundai very affordable in comparison. Both these SUVs offer ample cabin room but the major win for the Hyundai comes in the form of cargo space and fuel economy. However, if driving pleasure and engagement is what you’re looking for, the Murano is the better option of the two.

2023 Nissan Murano vs 2023 Ford Edge

Despite the Ford looking much more modern and updated, the build quality of the Murano is far superior. The Ford does offer larger storage space but considering that there isn’t much of an improvement on the Ford against the Murano, the Edge isn’t worth the additional money it asks for. The Murano feels sturdier and offers the better value of the two despite it not receiving any major update in recent times.

Final Verdict

Despite Nissan giving a refresh to many of its models, the Murano remains to be similar to the outgoing model. However, that does not mean the Murano is a poor choice in the midsize SUV segment. For the price it sells for, the Murano carries a lot of value and is one of the more powerful options available today. The Murano could feel dated in the cabin in terms of its design but the fit and finish earn it the image and reputation for being a sturdy vehicle. Maintaining a Nissan is much easier than other brands too as the dealership network is strong and replacement parts are readily available. The ones who were looking for an update might have to wait for another year as Nissan could be introducing the next generation of this long-run model.
