The 2017 Nissan Murano proves itself to be one of the top models in its class. Competitors, like the Mazda CX-5, bring a versatile offering, but they fall short of matching the Murano’s sheer versatility. From performance to styling to space, the Nissan Murano packs a wallop. See how it compares to the Mazda CX-5!
The Mazda CX-5 features a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that offers 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. While that amount of power isn’t a bad thing, it may not offer the responsiveness required when getting up to speed on the highway.
The Nissan Murano, on the other hand, comes stocked with a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers a thrilling 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. That sets the Murano apart as one of the most powerful models in its class.
When it comes to shifting, the Nissan Murano takes the lead once more. The latest model features a standard Xtronic CVT® that keeps things smooth, no matter the speed. The Mazda CX-5 offers a standard six-speed automatic transmission. The Murano’s transmission makes seamless shifting the standard.
The Mazda CX-5 is designed for the average driver with its compact design and conservative styling. The Nissan Murano is much more attractive on the road thanks to its swept-back styling and iconic front end. When an owner walks out to the parking lot, it might take a minute to pick the Mazda CX-5 out from the crowd, but the Nissan Murano catches a driver’s eye right away.
The Nissan Murano’s roomy interior comes into play when compared to the Mazda CX-5. Passengers will enjoy an impressive 108.1 cu ft. of space in the Murano. Those who choose to travel in the CX-5 will have to settle for a less spacious 103.8 cu ft.
