2015 Nissan Murano vs. 2015 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. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Murano.

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). Whether you pick the Nissan Murano or the Nissan Pathfinder, 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 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 the same turning radius as the Nissan Pathfinder, so they both maneuver the same 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 less cargo space than the Nissan Pathfinder, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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