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.

Cost

The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Murano. 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 Chevrolet Traverse and the Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain

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.
