2014 Nissan Murano vs. 2014 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Murano as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, 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 Chevrolet Traverse. 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 Chevrolet Traverse have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Nissan Murano seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The Nissan Murano has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

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