Crossovers have completely taken over the automobile market with their compatibility, versatility, and reasonable prices. Today, people own a crossover to balance their passion for an SUV while looking out for their family’s needs. Do you want to own one, too? Here, we are comparing the two most preferred crossovers of 2018.

The Nissan Murano is the best buy in its class. It gives you a posh cabin and a highly efficient V6 performance at probably one of the best prices for a crossover. Experts say that the interiors of this compact SUV are better than some of its costlier competitors, and the seating comfort is again the best in its league on all kinds of surfaces.

The Murano seats five people on the standard cloth upholstery. It has power-adjustable seats, heatable and ventilated front seats, along with heated back seats and an awesome heated steering wheel. Now, that’s a perfect package for a place that’s cold! This car gives a comfortable ride for long drives and has plenty of leg room in both the rows. In terms of fuel consumption, the Murano gives 21 mpg in the city and 28 on highways. This car is probably the best buy in its budget.


Now, let’s talk about Ford Escape: it is one of the top-rated crossovers owing to its sportiness mixed with high-end utilities. The Escape comfortably accommodates five adults in it and the seats are wide, comfortable, and come in the standard cloth upholstery. Other options include heated front seats and a heated steering.

The Escape has the biggest cargo space in its class and the space doubles up when the rear row is folded. Escape comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder base engine that gives the car 168 horsepower. Fuel economy wise, Escape is cool, given that it clocks an impressive 20 to 23 mpg in the city and 27 to 30 mpg on the highways.

If you go into the nuances, you will realize that the Nissan Murano is a better option than the Ford Escape. the Murano has better interiors, leg room, engine performance, and handling. Yes, it is more expensive, but it’s absolutely worth its price.
