2014 Nissan Murano vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza than in the Nissan Murano, due to its greater 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 Toyota Venza.

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

Dimensions
The Nissan Murano is a little narrower than the Toyota Venza, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Murano takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Nissan Murano transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The Nissan Murano has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Murano greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Murano and the Toyota Venza. The Nissan Murano has less cargo space than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.
