2017 Nissan Murano S vs SV trims
You have many options when it comes to picking a midsize sedan, but the 2017 Nissan Murano proves to be a stellar choice for both style and available features. Looking at the S vs SV trims, it quickly becomes apparent that Nissan isn’t playing around when it comes to standard and available features. These two options stand in as the starting options out of five total trim levels. If they already almost seem too good to be true, it might be shocking to find that things get even better as you upgrade.
As you can see below, there is something of a price jump between the first and second trim levels. You may find yourself wondering if it’s worth the extra cost for the 2017 Nissan Rogue SV. Mechanically, you’ll find both trims offer the same 3.5-liter V6 engine with its maximum system output of 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, with optional AWD, and a CVT is standard across trims. So what are the main differences?

Features in the 2017 Nisan Murano S vs SV
You’ll find the biggest differences between trim levels come in the form of standard and available features. The 2017 Nissan Murano S, as the base model, sets the standard for what you’ll find in all other trims. That is to say, anything in higher trims will build upon or upgrade these features. For example, the base model comes with a simple radio with features like Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth and hands-free texting, but the SV trim upgrades this to an 8-inch infotainment system with built-in navigation, NissanConnect and Apple CarPlay integration.
Both trims will have modern necessities like the RearView Monitor and dual-zone automatic temperature control, but the SV trim adds on a host of premium features such as remote engine start, speed-sensitive windshield wipers, 8-way power for the driver’s seat and 4-way power for the front passenger’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, HD radio and more.
Of course, the best way to get a sense of which vehicle is right for you is to stop by Glendale Nissan for a test drive. We look forward to your visit.
