Starting Price: $25,775 | Price Yours

Above Average: Class-above interior, fuel efficiency

Below Average: Resale value, driving refinement

Consensus: Sophisticated ride that checks all the boxes 


2018 Nissan Murano 

Starting Price: $31,775 | Price Yours

Above Average: Swooping style, power, space and comfort

Below Average: Fuel economy

Consensus: The middle-ground choice with enough to offer


The Nissan Rogue was already a great, versatile choice, but this year’s edition adds more new features including ProPILOT Assist autonomous technology that helps drive the Rogue itself. The Rogue Hybrid is one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs in its class. It boats plenty of space inside while not feeling too big on the road or in the parking lot. The Nissan Murano is the roomy, sleek choice in the middle of Nissan’s lineup of SUVs. The Murano is a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Four trim levels are available, all powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with a continuously variable automatic transmission.

Nissan Rogue Advantages

A hybrid version that improves on its already better fuel economy

Nissan Murano Advantages

3.5-liter V6 comes standard on all trim levels, more cabin room


Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety suite, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto supported infotainment

Final Recommendations

The Murano is a modern, upscale 5-passenger SUV that’s reliable, powerful, comfortable and has lots of new tech and safety features. However, the Rogue is a great value, and is a smaller, easier ride that’s more fuel efficient and cheaper.
