Review: 2013 Nissan Murano

The 2013 Nissan Murano is a Crossover SUV that adds a sense of refined luxury. If you want luxury and all the options at your price, we suggest testing the Murano today.

The Murano has become a familiar face in the Nissan lineup. It still comes with the thin headlights and the long grille that stretches the length of the front end. No matter which trim you choose, the Murano comes with alloy wheels, something not always found on comparable models. Inside, no matter what color or fabric you choose, we think the Murano is a classy vehicle.

You can get  get woodgrain trim, leather seats and even a panoramic sunroof with a Nissan Murano.

The Murano is designed for safety, and Nissan provides additional technology that makes this SUV even safer. The Murano received a 5-star rating for side-impact crash safety. Safety technology available on the Murano includes blind spot warnings, lane departure warning system and moving object detection. When you shift into reverse, Nissan’s RearView Monitor displays what is behind. And, if it detects something moving int the rear of vehicle when you are in reverse, it gives you a visual and audible alert.

The Murano also comes in available All Wheel Drive, so no road or road condition is too tough to tame behind the wheel of your Murano.

Other safety features include ABS Brakes, Traction Control and Vehicle Dynamic Control.


There are 3 available trims for the 2013 Nissan Murano, and Nissan other separate packages that let you build the Murano of your dreams. No matter what trim you choose, the Murano comes standard with Intelligent Key Push Button Ignition, LED Taillights, alloy wheels and safety features. Move up trims to add the backup cameras, Bluetooth, USB plugs for your iPod, panoramic sunroof, heated leather seats and leather wrapped steering wheel.


The Murano is powered by a 3.5L engine delivers a 260 hp, 240 lb ft torque and fuel economy that reaches up to 24 MPG on the highway. The CVT Transmission was a game changer when it was introduced and it still provides the fuel economy you have been looking for.


The Car Connection

When it made its debut, and still today, the Murano is a clean break away from the crossover-vehicle mainstream. The current version, we’ve thought, carries itself more assertively as a crisply detailed, high-shouldered tall wagon and less than the single-piece designer-footwear look of the first-generation Murano.


The 2013 Nissan Murano is a well-rounded midsize crossover that offers an engaging driving experience and overall sophistication.

Pros: High-quality cabin; spacious backseat; responsive powertrain; confident handling; smooth ride; user-friendly controls.

Kelley Blue Book

“If you’re looking for a crossover SUV that has sports-car styling and room for people and cargo, the 2013 Nissan Murano is a tempting option.” 

Consumer Guide

“Though it’s starting to feel a bit long in the tooth, Murano remains a likable SUV that offers a comfortable interior, versatile cargo utility, and a strong, refined powertrain. All models are pricey, but offer a generous level of standard features.”
