Comparison Review

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

Convenience

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). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Nissan Murano, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan Murano.

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

Performance

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Traverse more than the Nissan Murano, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan Murano.
