The Nissan Murano vs. the Ford Edge in Winston Salem


From its strong V-6 capabilities to the unique styling, the new Nissan Murano is a great choice for a midsized SUV, with seating for five and plenty of high-end technology. A lot of the features found in the new Murano aren't offered in competitors like the new Ford Edge, and you can see below why the Nissan SUV is clearly the better choice. If you're looking to stand out with your family vehicle, but need all the utility and conveniences and of a solid SUV, the new Murano is clearly the right choice.

  • Prepare to say 'neigh' to the Edge, because it only offers 245 horsepower while the Murano boasts 260.
  • The Edge offers a 2-liter I-4 engine, while the Murano offers a 3.5-liter V6.
  • Do you want your SUV to support your SiriusXM Satellite Radio? The Edge doesn't support satellite radio, but the Murano can so you don't have to miss out on your favorite stations.
  • The Murano is equipped class-exclusive features like available predictive forward collision warning, around view monitor with moving object detection and zero gravity seats for greater comfort and reduced fatigue, all of which can't be found with the Edge.

The Nissan Murano vs. the Lexus RX 350 in Winston Salem


While luxury SUVs like the Lexus RX 350 are appealing in terms of styling and technology offerings, the new Murano offers you a respectably well-equipped package for a lot less. And you won't find some of the Murano's unique offerings like the zero gravity seats in the RX 350, which also boasts a considerably smaller cabin in terms of passenger space. See what else below makes the new Murano the better choice.


  • Fuel economy is a big deal with the Murano, getting up to 28 highway miles per gallon while the RX 350 only gets up to 25.
  • Prepare to have a tight fit if you're going to pack your friends or family into the Lexus RX 350, because it offers less rear legroom than the Murano.
  • For added convenience and utility, the new Murano features a far greater cargo capacity than the RX 350, giving you a highly versatile SUV for all your family travels.
  • Price matters with the Murano, and this model is focused on saving you money by being available at more than $10,000 less than the RX 350.

The Nissan Murano vs. the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport in Winston Salem


With unique styling, class-exclusive features and a strong sense of performance, the new Murano is usually the clear choice over competitors like the new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The lower price of the Santa Fe Sport might be convincing, but there's great value in all the standard and optional features found in the Murano, not to mention its dynamic styling. See below what makes the Nissan Murano the best choice.

  • With a standard V-6 engine, the new Murano greatly outperforms the Santa Fe Sport, all while earning practically identical fuel efficiency ratings. In fact, the Murano actually edges out the Santa Fe Sport in terms of highway mpgs.
  • From class-exclusive features like predictive forward collision warning, around view monitor with moving object detection and zero gravity seats, to optional navigation and standard front and rear A/C, the Murano is far better equipped inside than the Santa Fe at its starting package, and throughout its higher trims.
  • The NissanConnect telematics and communications system is far more comprehensive in the starting package of the Murano than whatever Hyundai system comes as an option in the Santa Fe Sport.
  • The Murano better accommodates backseat passengers with a rear USB connection port with smartphone interface, which is lacking in the Santa Fe Sport. This is a great way to keep the little ones connected and occupied during longer trips.
