2010 Nissan Murano Review

The five-seat 2010 Nissan Murano is one of the sportier SUVs in its class. When it was new, some test drivers thought that its sleek, futuristic looks may be a bit polarizing, but as long as you don’t need a third row of seats, most reviewers thought that the Murano is a very good choice.

Pros & Cons

  • Attractive, high-quality interior
  • Sporty driving dynamics
  • Spacious back seat

2010 Nissan Murano Overview

The 2010 Nissan Murano is a stylish and fun-to-drive crossover, which should appeal to shoppers who don’t want a frumpy family SUV. The Murano ranks highly in its class with sporty performance and an unusually upscale interior for the class. If you need seating for seven, you’re out of luck, since the Murano can only seat five, though reviewers noted that its seats were comfortable and had plenty of legroom. Additionally, it’s not the best 2010 midsize SUV for towing, its rearward visibility isn’t great and other competitors have a bit more cargo space.

In 2010, the Murano was available in three trims: S, SL and LE. All come with a V6 engine and front- or all-wheel drive. Fuel economy in both trims is fairly good, at 18/23 mpg city highway, but shoppers should note that the Murano uses premium fuel, so you’ll pay more per gallon at the pump. Notable standard features include push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control. Upper trims, like the LE, can come with luxurious features like a Bose stereo system, a power liftgate, rain sensing intermittent windshield wipers and heated front and rear seats.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Ford Edge offers a similarly upscale interior, as well as better safety scores. And unlike the Murano, the Edge runs on regular gas, which should save you a little money at the pump. Plus, test drivers loved the Edge’s smooth, sleek looks when it was new and said the Ford Edge’s ride was tuned more for comfort and sport.

If performance isn’t a priority, and you want the most comfortable five-seat SUV you can find, you should consider the 2010 Toyota Venza. Test drivers praised its smooth, coddling ride, although most were quick to note than the Venza isn’t fun to drive. The Venza gets better safety scores than the Murano, and all trims of the Venza get better fuel economy.
