Nissan Murano vs Honda Pilot: Efficient Performance

Both SUVs offer you the enhanced capability of available all-wheel drive systems. The Nissan Murano has available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. It can switch from powering two wheels to powering four, in the blink of an eye. This enhances efficiency, handling, and control.

The Honda Pilot is equipped with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission, but the Murano comes standard with an Xtronic CVT®. It offers virtually seamless shifting power and enhanced fuel economy.

Speaking of fuel efficiency, which model will save you time at the pump? The Pilot gets an EPA-estimated 19 MPG city and 27 MPG highway. The Murano, however, gives you just a little bit more with an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 28 MPG highway.1

Nissan Murano vs Honda Pilot: Comfort

When it comes to standard comfort, the Nissan Murano is the front runner. It has a Dual-Zone Climate Control System standard. The Pilot comes standard with a manual air conditioning system.

Finally, both models offer you the ability to personalize your support with available 10-way power-adjustable driver's seats, which also include lumbar support. There are available heated front seats, as well.

Nissan Murano vs Honda Pilot: Innovative Technology

When it comes to staying connected on the go, you'll be able to see and do more with the standard NissanConnect® 8-inch touchscreen display on the Nissan Murano. The infotainment system on the Pilot comes standard with only a 5-inch LCD screen.

Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ come standard on the Murano, as well. That means you'll be able to stay in touch with your apps and music. These technologies only come as available options on the Honda Pilot.

To keep you in confident control behind the wheel, both models have available Blind Spot Warning. So, whichever model you choose, you know it'll be looking out for you and your family's safety.
