Nissan Murano Is The Best Midsize SUV of 2016

There's nothing on the road quite like our Nissan Murano, and and MotorWeek recently took notice. After putting five leading midsize SUVs through rigorous testing, and MotorWeek selected the 2016 Murano as the "Best Midsize SUV of 2016". 2016 has definitely been the "Year Of The Truck" for Nissan. back in January named the Titan and Rogue "Best Pickup Truck of 2016" and "Family Car of the Year"! 

"The Murano is the closest option to a luxury SUV in this group, with a level of cabin materials and styling flair that's largely missing among the others," said Editor in Chief Patrick Olsen. "The Murano's high points extend beyond its quality interior. The SUV is packed with technology and family friendly features, and thanks to its V6 power, the Murano is a blast to drive."

The competitors selected for this challenge were the 2016 Ford Edge, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Kia Sorento, and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Luckily, the Murano was the clear champion, and frankly, we weren't surprised. Nissan has taken a sharp approach to their truck and SUV segment over the last few years. From unique styling to unmatched tech and safety features. Nissan truly is a cut above the rest, and the competitors are trying to ride their wave at this point. 

"Murano has become a favorite of awards junkies and consumers alike since the introduction of the totally redesigned third generation Murano for the 2015 model year," said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. "The award is another great honor, adding to the 2015-2016 Murano crossover's streak of winning more awards over the last two years than any other SUV in its class." Up 35% in sales year to date, it's clear the public loves Murano

The exterior of the Murano is commanding with the V-Motion front end, boomerang lights, floating roof treatment and efficient aerodynamics. On the inside, the Murano offers an open living room feel through features like the refined lower height instrument panel, wide center console, advanced 0 gravity seats, and an overall aired-out atmosphere created by large windows, and a huge panoramic roof. 

SUVs are the family vehicle of choice in the Greater St. Louis area. The AWD V6 model is perfect for navigating through Winter weather, and the large windows and panoramic roof are perfect for a warm Summer day. Growing families in the Wood River and St. Louis area will appreciate the massive cabin space, and tons of storage. One of the safest and most advanced SUVs on the road, the Murano is clearly a step above the competition.
