Well, now you’ve gone and done it. You’ve started looking for a crossover SUV, and as happens with an increasingly large number of Houston-area drivers, you’ve realized that two models--the 2015 Nissan Rogue and the 2015 Nissan Murano--are simply operating on a level that most competitors are dreaming of. But once you’ve realized that you’re going home in either the Rogue or the Murano, perhaps the toughest decision of your life looms: which one is best for you?
On one hand, you’ve got the 2015 Nissan Rogue. Incredibly fuel-efficient, seating for seven, low cost to buy and even lower cost of ownership. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is quiet and composed, and perfectly suited to daily commuting and long-distance vacations. At a price starting at under $23,000, how can you go wrong.
And then you look across the parking lot, and you see the 2015 Nissan Murano. It’s been fully redesigned for the new model year, and it’s bold V-Motion Grille, floating roofline and muscular exterior lines are beckoning you as well. You’d hate to make a decision based just on your emotional response to such a viscerally pleasing vehicle.
Well, let’s look at where each vehicle shines, shall we? The Rogue receives its highest marks for several of the areas noted above; namely, it seats seven passengers, offers amazing fuel economy, and is offers technology features--NissanConnect Apps, the 360-degree Around View Monitor, to name two--that make it an amazing value in its class. If you’re a young family looking for the ideal vehicle to house your growing brood while offering a fair bit of road-ready versatility, the Rogue might be for you.
The Murano, meanwhile, operates at luxury-brand levels of sophistication. Its performance profile, afforded by a 260-hp 3.5L V6, is truly upscale, while its interior cabin boasts only the finest upholstery materials and technology features offered today. If you’re willing to spend a bit more for the finer things in life, the 2015 Nissan Murano might be more in your wheelhouse.
Both the 2015 Nissan Murano and 2015 Nissan Rogue are now available at Robbins Nissan, and we’d love to show them off for you. To learn more or to schedule a test drive, visit our Houston-area dealership today!
