Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet than the Lexus IS 350C, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus IS 350C and the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus IS 350C as you will with the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, as they get the same number of miles per 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). The Lexus IS 350C is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus IS 350C will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus IS 350C is much slimmer than the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus IS 350C is slightly shorter than the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, which may make it easier to park.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus IS 350C transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus IS 350C and the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. The Lexus IS 350C has less cargo capacity than the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
