If you’re looking to buy a Nissan Murano but can’t decide which year to go for, 2016 or 2017, our vote is for the newer one. Prices aren’t going up, so it makes sense to opt for the 2017. But you’ll want to find make sure you ask about new CarPlay and driver safety systems that won’t be available until later the model year.
Apple Carplay will be added to the NissanConnect system at some point. It comes with an 8-inch nav screen. The package for it comes standard on the SV, SL, and Platinum models. The base model offers it as an add-on.
Sales of the Murano have been on the up and up since January 2015. Nissan predicts the 55% uptick will continue into 2017.
The 2017 starts at $30,640. Front-wheel drive comes standard. All trims offer all-wheel drive for $1,600 more. The other trims are the SV, SL, and Platinum. They start at $33,700; $38,030; and $40,080 each.
