2014 Nissan Murano vs. 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Nissan Murano, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Nissan Murano and the Nissan Pathfinder.

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

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

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Nissan Murano and the Nissan Pathfinder are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder is clearly the choice over the Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Nissan Murano and the Nissan Pathfinder.

Utility
The Nissan Murano has less seating than the Nissan Pathfinder, making the Nissan Pathfinder the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Nissan Murano has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Pathfinder.

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