2018 Nissan Murano vs. 2018 BMW X3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Murano than in the BMW X3. The BMW X3 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano as you will with the BMW X3, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Murano will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X3. 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 Nissan Murano and the BMW X3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Nissan Murano is a little wider than the BMW X3, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan Murano, which is slightly longer than the BMW X3.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Murano doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X3.

Handling
The Nissan Murano has the same turning radius as the BMW X3, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the BMW X3 is clearly the choice over the Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Murano has a little more horsepower than the BMW X3.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Murano and the BMW X3. The Nissan Murano has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X3.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Murano is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW X3.
