As is required of all vehicles starting with the 2012 model year, the Murano comes with antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. The front seats include side-impact airbags and active head restraints, and there are side curtain airbags to protect both the front and rear seats.
Perhaps another sign of the Murano’s age is the absence of active safety features, things like radar-based blind spot warning and a lane departure warning system.
A longtime Cars.com Best Bet, the Murano lost the designation in 2012 due to its below-average mileage and substandard roof strength, but it remains a favorite among Cars.com editors, thanks to all its benefi ts. If you aren’t concerned about a mile per gallon here or there, the Murano still stands tall against newer competition.
