It can sometimes be difficult to determine if you should get the newest year of a vehicle or if the prior year’s model will suffice. Both are made by your chosen brand, and both have the quality core of the model you chose. However, the year of your future model can make a difference. That’s why we are here to compare the 2019 Nissan Murano to the 2018 version here at Glendale Nissan. For this comparison, we took the lowest trims of both models. That means you’ll see the Murano S for the 2019 and 2018 models in the table below. If you are looking for more information about other trims please don’t hesitate to check out our blog or contact us!

Let’s get started. First off, you’ll find both models have the same 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. So, if you are looking for power, you’ll find the same in the 2018 as you will in the 2019. However, there are features you can find in the 2019 Nissan Murano that you won't in the 2018 version. Check it out below!

Features of the Nissan Murano

While you won’t find Park Assist on the 2019 Murano S you can find it on other trims. This is not the case for the 2018 Murano S, which doesn’t have this feature at all. This is similar to the availability of other technology features as well. You have the option to add convenient technology features like a remote engine start and an auto-dimming rearview mirror on the 2019 Murano S, but you can’t find these features on the 2018 Murano S.

So, if you are looking primarily for space and power, the two Murano vehicles are pretty much the same. However, if you are looking for technology features to go along with the space and power, you’re probably better off going with the most recent model.
