SUVs become more popular each year, and understandably so. They offer excellent performance and amenities with the benefit of more versatility than smaller offerings. In today’s competitive SUV market, three of the most popular offerings are the 2018 Nissan Murano, Toyota Highlander, and Ford Edge. While each of these models has some appealing features, the 2018 Nissan Murano emerges as the clear winner when we compare it to both of the others.
2018 Nissan Murano vs 2018 Toyota Highlander
While the 2018 ToyotaHighlander is a capable SUV in its own right, it can’t keep up with the 2018 NissanMurano when we compare the two head-to-head. Aside from its polarizing, somewhat awkward styling, one of the major downfalls of the 2018 Highlander is its uninspiring performance. The 2018 Highlander is capable of a maximum horsepower of just 185 while achieving an EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway.* The 2018 Murano, on the other hand, is capable of an exhilarating 260 horsepower while also managing a higher 28 mpg highway*.
Add to this the fact that the 2018 Toyota Highlander comes with a base price that is significantly higher than the 2018 Murano and drivers are left with little incentive to pick the Toyota over the more exciting 2018 Murano.
2018 Nissan Murano vs 2018 Ford Edge
Like the Toyota Highlander, the 2018 FordEdge doesn’t compete with the 2018 Nissan Murano when it comes to performance. The maximum 245 horsepower of the Edge pales in comparison the 2018 Murano’s more robust 260 horsepower, while the inclusion of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility Suite for increased safety on the 2018 Murano pushes things even more in its favor.
The 2018 Murano also wins when it comes overall interior comfort. The 2018 Ford Edge is a hair larger than the 2018 Murano, but the Murano delivers a more premium experience despite this, offering premium materials, excellent infotainment interface, and plenty of high-end amenities like Driver’s Memory System automatic adjusting seats.
