How Much Does the 2015 Nissan Murano Cost to Own?

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Murano?

The 2019 Murano is a part of the same generation as the 2015 Murano, but they differ in some significant ways. The 2019 model starts at around $31,300 and has refreshed interior and exterior styling, an updated navigation system, and a slew of features that weren't standard in the 2015 model, including forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, rear-seat reminder and driver drowsiness warning systems, the Nissan Connect infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The new model is also available with features like pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, high-beam assist, rear automatic braking, and front and rear parking sensors, which were not available in the 2015 Murano. If any of those features are important to you or you like the new model's refreshed look, go for the 2019 Murano. If not, stick with a used model to save some money.

For a new midsize SUV that's within the same price range as a used 2015 Murano, consider the 2019 Kia Sorento, which starts at $25,990. It offers three rows of seating compared to two in the 2015 Murano. The uplevel 2015 Murano SL with all-wheel drive is comparably priced to the base 2019 Sorento and has more features, including leather seats, push-button start, rear parking sensors, satellite radio, navigation, and a nine-speaker Bose sound system. Both make a good choice, but the 2015 Murano gives you more bang for your buck.

Which Model Year of the Nissan Murano Is Best?

The 2018 Murano is a part of a generation that began with the 2015 model. The 2014 Murano, the last model of the previous generation, has lower safety scores, is not as fuel-efficient, and has less overall cargo space. For the best value, stick with a 2015 Murano. It's nearly identical to the 2016 and 2017 models, and while the 2018 Murano offers more standard features, most are available in the 2015. You won't find Apple CarPlay or Android Auto in 2017-and-older models though, so if that's important, you'll want a 2018 Murano.

What Does Nissan's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Nissan offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 80,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each Nissan CPO vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like rental car reimbursement, a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio trial subscription, a Security+Plus Extended protection plan, towing, and 24-hour roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

Nissan’s CPO program is about average for an affordable auto manufacturer, according to our research. Mazda, Honda, and Chevrolet all have more robust programs.

2015 Nissan Murano Versus the Competition

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

Both the Murano and the 2015 Ford Edge have an upscale interior, easy-to-use tech features, and a good balance of ride quality and handling ability. The Edge has a sometimes-sluggish turbo-four base engine, but its two available V6 engines offer more power. The Edge also provides some handy tech features, like active park assist and a hands-free power liftgate. Both midsize SUVs offer great value for the money, so the choice may come down to preference.

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

Seating and cargo capacity are two significant differences between the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder and the Murano. The Pathfinder seats up to seven in three rows, and it offers about 10 extra cubic feet of cargo space, enough for a few large suitcases. However, the Pathfinder has a below-average reliability rating and doesn’t come standard with a rearview camera like the Murano does, though it’s available in upper trims.

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

If you can justify spending an extra $5,000 or so for a luxury midsize SUV, the 2015 Lexus RX 350 is a better option. Like the Murano, the RX 350 offers a luxurious interior and a comfortable ride. Unlike the Murano, the RX 350 comes with a top-notch reliability rating, standard power-adjustable front seats, and a 12-speaker audio system. It also has plenty of passing power, greater cargo space, and more available advanced safety features, like parallel park assist and forward automatic emergency braking.

2015 Murano Interior

The Murano’s front seats are comfortable, even on longer journeys, but the low-mounted rear seats could be a problem for taller folks.

The Murano has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats and an upper tether on the rear middle seat.
