2017 Nissan Murano vs 2017 Honda CR-V

Over the last few years, you may have noticed quite a difference on the roads. Essentially, while other styles are not exactly in danger of vanishing, crossover SUV models have really taken over the streets as a dominant force. These models provide a happy medium between the things people love about an SUV (cargo capacity, horsepower, riding height) and what they love about sedans or coupes (maneuverability, fuel efficiency). It is no wonder that these vehicles have become so popular. If you are part of a family, you know how important it is to be able to fit everyone inside for summer vacations as well as weekly errands, and crossovers are a great way to do that while remaining inside a fuel economy budget your wallet can enjoy. With so many options out there, which one is right for you? We are here to help with a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Murano vs the 2017 Honda CR-V. 

Each of these models is a fine example of a crossover from a popular automaker, but the Murano pulls ahead in a number of areas.

More horsepower and standard features you've grown accustomed to in the Murano

If you are packing everyone into the family automobile for a night of shopping or for a trip across the state, you need to be sure that the vehicle has the kind of power to confidently carry you forth into your adventures. The 2017 Nissan Murano has a standard engine capable of delivering 260 horsepower, which far surpasses the 184 horsepower offered by the standard 2017 Honda CR-V. Tack on the 19-gallon fuel tank and the 21/28 city/highway miles per gallon fuel economy, and you have a crossover that is powerful and efficient.

Something else to note is the lack of a CD player inside the 2017 CR-V. Roll with the times, yes, but why force people into conforming to them? The 2017 Nissan Murano found a way to incorporate an AM/FM stereo, a CD player, MP3 capability, an auxiliary audio input jack, a front USB connection port, and even SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. This is proof that including a CD player does not have to come at the expense of the kinds of technology that have come after it. You can still play your college mix CDs as well as your latest playlist from your phone!
