2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Murano, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Murano.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Murano, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Traverse 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. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Nissan Murano, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan Murano.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Traverse more than the Nissan Murano, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Murano.
