2016 Nissan Murano Trim Comparison in Amherst, NY
Which Trim Level is Right for You?
Those who are in need of a stylish and feature-packed midsize crossover often make the smart decision to purchase the Nissan Murano. But, before you do, you have the tough decision of which of its four trim levels is right for you. To help you distinguish between your choices, we at Mike Barney Nissan have broken each down for you with our 2016 Nissan Murano trim comparison in Amherst, NY.
To start things off, the base S trim level sits on bold 18-inch split 5-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels and has sparkling LED Daytime Running Lights and taillights. There’s also power outside mirrors with LED turn signals so vehicles around you are aware of your next move. On the inside, there’s a 6-way manual-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 60/40 split-folding seats that collapse to reveal 69.9 cubic ft. of cargo space1. There are also three 12V power outlets to keep everyone’s devices charged.
In terms of technology, there’s a 7-inch touchscreen display that is home to NissanConnectSM with Mobile Apps2, which boasts hands-free text messaging3, the Bluetooth® hands-free phone system4, a 6-speaker audio system, and the RearView Monitor5. Also standard is the Advanced Drive Assist® Display6. This 7-inch screen between the two gauges shows you a variety of pertinent information, like fuel stats and tire pressure readings.
Regarding performance, all trim levels are powered by the 3.6L V6 engine with 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. The Xtronic CVT® is standard, and AWD is available to be added on all four trims.
The next option within our 2016 Nissan Murano trim comparison in Amherst, NY, is the SV. You’ll now have NissanConnectSM2 with Navigation on an 8-inch display. This also includes SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link7 for updates regarding traffic, weather, sports, stocks, and more. Additionally, you’ll have fog lights for prime visibility, black roof rails for more cargo options, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. To kick style up a notch, there’s also a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The next trim level on the 2016 Murano is the SL, which upgrades to silver roof rails, heated side mirrors, 20-inch wheels, and a power liftgate. Inside, your tunes sound even better when played through the Bose® audio system with 11 speakers. You’ll beat with cold East Coast winter with heated front seats, and leather upholstery cradles you in comfort. There’s also upgraded safety features that include the AroundView® Monitor5 for a 360-degree view around the Murano and the Blind Spot Warning8 to help you change lanes.
The top-of-the-line trim is the Platinum, which upgrades your visibility with LED headlights. The Remote Engine Start System syncs with Intelligent Climate Control to get your cabin to a comfortable 72 degrees upon startup. There’s also now heated rear seats so everyone can be comfortable during the winter, and a heated steering wheel so you can ditch the gloves.
