2015 BMW X1 vs. 2014 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the BMW X1 than the Nissan Murano. The Nissan Murano offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X1, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Nissan Murano, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the BMW X1 or the Nissan Murano, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Nissan Murano, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Murano.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X1 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Murano.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Murano, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Nissan Murano. The BMW X1 has less cargo space than the Nissan Murano, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Nissan Murano.
