2015 Nissan Murano Overview

Is the 2015 Nissan Murano a Good Used SUV?

As our 2015 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money and 2015 Best 2-Row SUV for Families, the Nissan Murano is a terrific used SUV. Its user-friendly features, comfortable cabin, and sterling safety and predicted reliability scores make it a solid choice for midsize SUV shoppers.

Used 2015 Nissan Murano Performance and Interior

The Murano comes standard with a V6 engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Engine power falls short of the Murano’s rivals, but fuel economy is good for the class. Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models return 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The Murano has a comfortable ride, even on bumpy roads. Its composed handling exhibits minimal body roll, but the steering feels somewhat numb.

Cloth upholstery and seating for five come standard in the Murano. Available niceties include leather seats, heated front and rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. Materials are luxury-grade, similar to what you’ll find in an Infiniti or other luxury brands. The Murano’s NASA-inspired front seats are like those in the Nissan Altima, and they’re comfortable even on longer journeys. The Murano’s low-mounted rear seats, however, could be a problem for taller folks. Forward visibility is excellent, but it can be difficult to see through the back window. The Murano can hold up to 69.9 cubic feet of cargo, which is good for an SUV with 2 rows.

Standard features include dual-zone climate control, a proximity key, and push-button start. The standard NissanConnect infotainment system features a six-speaker audio system and a 7-inch display. The available navigation system has straightforward menus and an 8-inch touch screen with dazzling graphics. Other available features include a nine-speaker Bose audio system, a power liftgate, and a panoramic sunroof.

Should I Consider Another Used Murano?

The 2015 Murano marks the beginning of the third generation of the crossover, which includes the 2017 Nissan Murano. Since the 2016 and 2017 models are nearly identical to the 2015 model, save yourself some money and go for the 2015 Murano.

Which Used Nissan Murano Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Nissan Murano comes in four trims: S, SV, SL, and Platinum. For premium amenities like leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a Bose audio system, look for the SL trim, which also comes with driver assistance features like a 360-degree parking camera and blind spot monitoring. For even more safety tech, SL models with the Technology package add adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning. 

For added peace of mind, consider a certified pre-owned Murano. For its CPO vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

2015 Nissan Murano and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Murano or 2015 Nissan Pathfinder?

Seating and cargo capacity are two major differences between the Nissan Pathfinder and the Murano. The Pathfinder seats up to seven in its three rows, and it offers about 10 extra cubic feet of cargo space (enough for a few large suitcases). However, the Pathfinder has a cramped third row and a below-average predicted reliability rating. Also, the Pathfinder doesn’t come standard with a rearview camera.

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Murano or 2015 Lexus RX 350?

If you can justify spending the extra dough for a luxury midsize SUV, the Lexus RX 350 makes a better option. Like the Murano, it offers a top-notch predicted reliability rating, a luxurious interior, and a comfortable ride. Unlike the Murano, the RX 350 comes standard with power-adjustable front seats and a 12-speaker audio system, and it has more available advanced safety features, like parallel park assist and automatic emergency braking. It also has plenty of highway passing power and more cargo space than the Murano.

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Murano or 2015 Ford Edge?

Both the Murano and the Ford Edge have an upscale interior, easy-to-use tech features, and a good balance between ride quality and handling ability. The Edge has a sluggish base engine, but its two available engines offer more power. It also offers some handy features, like active park assist and a hands-free power liftgate. Both midsize SUVs offer great value for the money, so it comes down to your personal preference and model availability in your area.
