Nissan Murano vs Toyota Highlander Dayton

Nissan Murano vs Toyota Highlander Dayton


The Superior Choice in Every Category

With superior gas mileage, power, safety features, and cargo space that far outpaces the Toyota Highlander, the Nissan Murano is the clear choice for mid-sized SUV shoppers in Dayton, OH.



Better MPG Means More Money in Your Pocket

Notching 21 city and 28 highway miles per gallon to the Highlander’s 19 and 26, the Nissan Murano gets you further on less.

With both vehicles sporting a V6 power plant, Nissan’s innovative transmission allows for some of the SUV market’s best gas mileage. So you can get the get-up-and-go you need while saving precious dollars at the pump.

The Most Efficient Transmission Available

One of the main reasons behind the Nissan Murano’s excellent fuel mileage is the continuously variable transmission, or CVT, which takes no “steps” between gears. This technology allows the engine to stay at the most fuel-efficient speed as the Murano moves through the gears while allowing peak horsepower indefinitely, affording the maximum acceleration. It’s an advantage the Highlander just does not offer.

Goes Faster, Stops Faster

With a 3.5 liter, 24-valve dual overhead cam V6 that puts out 75 more horsepower and 56 more pound-feet of torque than the Highlander, the Murano has a whole lot more get up and go than its counterpart. It’s a difference you’ll feel the instant you put your foot to the gas.

But all that speed and added power don’t mean much without supreme stopping ability. With vented front and rear disc brakes standard, the Murano stops up to sixteen feet sooner than the Toyota when going from 60 to 0. The Highlander’s solid brakes do not afford you that ability.

More Space at the Push of a Button

We drive SUVs for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is cargo space. With optional push-button folding rear seats, the Murano makes increasing your cargo capacity easier than ever. No more bending, pulling, tugging, and pushing to get the most out of your mid-sized SUV. Just press a button and start loading. Like so many other things, it’s an option you just don’t have with a Toyota Highlander.
