The Murano, part of Nissan's lineup since 2003, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. It handles mud, snow, and sand with ease with optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Nissan Murano is 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 2022 Nissan Murano has a score of 83, implying a 0.038% chance of driver death (3.4% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Nissan Murano has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0379% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.3293%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0379% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.3293% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Nissan Murano is 19% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Nissan Murano is 7% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Nissan Murano: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
