The 2016 Nissan Murano is a versatile midsize crossover that offers Regina and Swift Current drivers more than the 2016 Ford Edge. Along with an upscale interior that boasts forward-thinking comfort features, the Murano treats drivers to a number of Class-Exclusive technologies, making it an easy front-runner within the crossover segment. Let’s explore both the 2016 Murano and the 2016 Edge now to see how they compare.

Comfort and Space

With the 2016 Nissan Murano, you receive plenty of space for both passengers and cargo, plus state-of-the-art comfort features to ensure a relaxed ride during even the dullest of morning commutes.

The Zero Gravity seats – which are used in both the front and rear of the vehicle – are one of the vehicle’s most innovative enhancements. They have been designed to replicate the weightlessness of space, meaning that you’ll arrive feeling refreshed after each and every journey. Competitors like the 2016 Ford Edge don’t offer such a feature.

Features

The interior of the 2016 Nissan Murano hasn’t just been designed to make you comfortable – it also puts a whole host of features at your fingertips that are not available with competitors like the 2016 Ford Edge.

Examples include:

  • Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection: Provides a virtual bird’s eye view of your surroundings, and even alerts you to moving objects within that field. Maneuvering just got that little bit easier and safer.
  • 8-Inch Multi-Touch Control Colour Monitor: You won’t find such a large touchscreen on any of the Murano’s rivals, including the 2016 Ford Edge.
  • Class-Exclusive Rear USB Connect Port: Rear passengers get their own USB port with smartphone interface. They can plug in their devices, then project everything on the screen up front.

Safety

Each year, the IIHS take every new car introduced to the North American market, then put them through an exhaustive battery of crash test simulations. Only those that score a top mark of ‘Good’ across all tests, plus either ‘Advanced’ or ‘Superior’ in terms of Frontal Crash Protection, earn the institute’s Top Safety Pick+ status. The 2016 Nissan Murano made the cut – the 2016 Ford Edge did not.

The Murano also offers a string of advanced driver assistance features that you won’t find with the 2016 Edge, including Predictive Forward Collision Warning with Forward Emergency Braking. This cutting-edge protection system is able to monitor the distance and velocity of the vehicle in front of you, meaning that it will detect when a collision becomes imminent and provides a warning to help you slow down. If you don’t, the emergency braking system will step in to help.

The 2016 Nissan Murano is Able to Leave Competitors Like the 2016 Ford Edge Far Behind
