2015 Honda Pilot vs. 2015 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Pilot offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Murano, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Nissan Murano.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Pilot 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 Honda Pilot 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 Honda Pilot and the Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Nissan Murano, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Murano.

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

Handling
The Honda Pilot has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Murano, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Honda Pilot more than the Nissan Murano, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Honda Pilot has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Murano.

Warranty
The Honda Pilot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Murano.
