If You’re Shopping for a 2014 Nissan Murano Around Boulder, We Have News

The 2014 Nissan Murano is a hatchback crossover that Boulder drivers will likely encounter when searching for a family vehicle. To try and stand out from the vast selection of options in the segment, Nissan has updated this model with modern features such as:

  • A V6 engine
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • A six-speaker stereo

While the 2014 Nissan Murano is not a bad choice, we believe that there are more capable and advanced options out there. The 2014 Honda Crosstour is built for the modern driver from the basic trim all the way to the top of the line versions, and we think it makes for a better family vehicle.

We know that it can be tough to choose the right crossover for your family, but there are plenty of reasons why we think the 2014 Crosstour is simply a better fit than the Murano. To start with, Nissan drivers get stuck with a V6 engine whether they want it or not. Now, that may be fine for some drivers, but Honda gives you the choice between the standard four-cylinder, 192-hp engine or a 278 hp 3.5L V6. As if that’s not enough, Nissan’s V6 is only good for up to 260 hp.

Honda has also done an incredible job of giving drivers standard features that other automakers—like Nissan—expect you to upgrade for or are not available at all. Gas-charged shocks for better handling on rough terrain and computer-generated active noise cancellation for a quite ride are two of the amenities you can have with the 2014 Honda Crosstour that are not even options with the Nissan Murano.

Take a look at our side-by-side comparison and see for yourself why the Crosstour should be at the top of your list:
