If you’ve arrived here, you’re unquestionably in the market for an SUV, and if you’re a discerning shopper, you might even end up in a Nissan. And there, at the top of our crossover SUV lineup, lurk two that can’t be ignored under any circumstances: the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2015 Nissan Murano. Both boast a similar sticker price, both boast the same powerful 3.5L V6 powertrain, and longtime drivers of both will insist that theirs is the better choice. However, comparing the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2015 Nissan Murano isn’t just a question of taste; rather, it’s a question of which model’s approach to crossover SUV better suits your lifestyle.
In one corner, you’ve got the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. Extremely spacious, incredibly economical for its size, and capable of seating seven passengers in its three rows. In the other, you’ve got the 2015 Nissan Murano. Fully redesigned with energetic style cues, quicker off of the line than the Pathfinder, and a welcoming chariot for five in two spacious rows. While any driver would be lucky to enjoy a journey in either one, their differences in approach speak to the outstanding versatility in Nissan’s lineup. The Pathfinder is generally understood to be more of a “family-oriented” vehicle, a safe and sturdy vehicle with class-best standard towing and a true “everything you need, nothing you don’t” ethos. The Murano, meanwhile, generates comparisons to many luxury SUVs with its vibrant interior design, gregarious style and upscale feel.
It’s the rare case where you could conceivably flip a coin and be happy with either option. However, purchasing a new car certainly isn’t a coin-flip, especially when you’re getting a vehicle for the entire family to enjoy. The key factor, of course, is space. If the ability to travel with six or seven passengers is a key feature in your next vehicle, then the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is likely headed to your garage. If the idea of driving Nissan’s newest redesign with four of your favorite passengers is more akin to your line of thinking, then the 2015 Nissan Murano might better suit your needs. In either case, you are certain to drive away happy.
