2018 Nissan Murano vs 2018 Mazda CX-9 nearChicago, IL

2018 Nissan Murano vs 2018 Mazda CX-9 near Chicago, ILThe vehicle pictured above is the 2018 Nissan Murano with available features.

With so many vehicles on the road, it sometimes is hard to differentiate which is best for you and your family. We decided to pin the 2018 Nissan Murano up against the 2018 Mazda CX-9, so you can see why the Murano outperforms its competitors. The best part is that the Murano can be found right here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet. All you have to do is swing by our dealership, located at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, to speak with a representative of our friendly staff, and to take the Murano out for a test drive.

Let’s start this comparison under the hood where the Murano boasts a thrilling performance. This crossover is equipped with a 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that generates a marvelous 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. When compared to the CX-9, there is no competition. This Mazda crossover SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder motor that produces a meager 227 horsepower. The Murano will also save you some money at the pump thanks to the 21/28 MPG city/hwy1. While the AWD version of the CX-9 offers a 20/26 MPG city/hwy1 fuel economy, not as efficient as the Murano.

Safety is the most important feature of any family vehicle, and you can rest assured that the 2018 Murano will protect you and your family. This crossover is equipped with the standard Nissan Advanced Airbag System2 with dual-stage supplemental front airbags2 and seat-belt and occupant-classification sensors. Taking safety to new heights is the standard roof-mounted curtain supplemental airbags2 for side-impact and rollover head protection for front and rear-seat outboard occupants. The CX-9 includes advanced airbags2 that will keep you safe, but not to the extent of the Murano.

Having a vehicle that is equipped with advanced technology will add more joy to every commute down I-355. The Murano comes standard with six speakers, but you can opt for the available Bose® Premium Audio System with AM/FM/CD, and that includes 11 speakers including dual subwoofers. With this type of technology at your disposal, you can jam out to your favorite tunes with concert-quality sound. So now, when you drive to Millennium Park for a day out with the family, let your kids jam out to their playlist. You will also have upwards to 150 channels of music and talk shows thanks to the standard SiriusXM Satellite Radio®3. The best part is that it comes with a 3-month complimentary trial subscription.
