2019 NISSAN MURANO VS 2019 ACURA RDX

The 2019 Nissan Murano and the 2019 Acura RDX are two compact SUVs that have plenty to offer both their drivers and passengers. With having a stunning design on both the interior and exterior, these two crossovers make a great addition to anyone's driveway. While they both offer a wide range of advanced features, the two vehicles offer completely different features. There are several different advantages to owning both of these SUVs.

When you first glance at the 2019 Nissan Murano and the 2019 Acura RDX, they look like very similar cars. However, once you get inside and look under the hood, you soon realize that these two vehicles are completely different. To help you better understand what we are talking about, here is an in-depth comparison of the 2019 Nissan Murano and the 2019 Acura RDX.

Spacious Interior

The interior of the Murano is specifically designed to give all occupants of the vehicle an adequate amount of room and comfort. The zero-gravity climate-controlled seats help to ensure that both the driver and passenger stay comfortable on long trips. If the back seat passengers want to feel more relaxed, all they have to do is simply pull a lever and the second-row seats recline to a comfortable angle.

For drivers that need to haul a lot of cargo, the rear seats fold down flat in a 60/40 split, giving the car an impressive 1,897 litres of cargo space. The back seats also have a no-hassle lever that allows you to quickly lay the seats down or put the seats back up with a simple pull of the handle.

As far as cargo space goes, the RDX only offers 881 litres and that is including the under-the-floor secret compartment. Extra long objects would be difficult to haul in this vehicle.

First-Class Safety

To help ensure that all occupants of the vehicle are able to stay safe during the entire trip, the Murano has Nissan's Safety Sheild Technologies available that include a Rear Cross Traffic Alert System that detects when there is a car or other object behind you while the Murano is in reverse.

Other safety features that come standard in the 2019 Murano include:

  • Rear door Alert
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness
  • Front seatbelts with pre-tensioners
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Zone Body Construction for more protection during a collision
  • Energy-Absorbing steering column
  • Nissan's Advanced Airbag System
  • LATCH child safety system
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Power and Fuel Efficiency

Both the 2019 Nissan Murano and the 2019 Acura RDX have powerful engines. However, the Murano has a smoother-shifting CVT transmission and has slightly better fuel efficiency.
