The Murano, a mainstay of Nissan's lineup since 2003, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. It handles mud, snow, and sand with ease with optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Strong on technology, it has offered Android Auto since 2020 and Apple CarPlay since 2017. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2017 Nissan Murano is below average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2017 Nissan Murano has a score of 73, implying a 0.051% chance of driver death (4.6% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.048%, and the chance of injury falls to 4.3%.

We estimate that the 2017 Nissan Murano has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0513% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.862%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0513% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.862% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2017 Nissan Murano is 10% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2017 Nissan Murano is 26% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2017 Nissan Murano offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 6%.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
