2017 Nissan Murano vs 2017 Lexus RX near Attleboro, MA

2016 Nissan Murano Platinum AWD shown in Pacific Sunset with 20-inch Machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels

Which of These is the Luxury Vehicle Again? 

We all want an SUV that suits our every need that doesn’t break the bank. At Milford Nissan, we’re hoping we can provide just that with the 2017 Nissan Murano. We’ll even pit it against the 2017 Lexus RX 350 to show you just how luxurious the Murano really is! Whether we’re talking about style, cargo space, or interior amenities, the Murano simply has the 2017 RX 350 beat. If you have any questions while reading through, know that your friends at Milford Nissan are here to chat through any lingering doubts. Give us a call at 774-462-3001, utilize our online chat function to the bottom, right-hand corner of the screen, or pay us a visit in person!

There’s no denying it — we like our ride to look good. We want to choose a color that suits our personality, and have that edgy, modern vibe on display. We argue that the Murano definitely has more flair and far more diversity in paint job options. With the colors like Pacific Sunset, a vibrant, fun orange, and Cayenne Red, a spicy, prominent option, the Murano has a style that the RX 350 just can’t match. The RX doesn’t even offer an orange tone for you to choose! Not to mention that both of the SUVs boast a floating roofline — a chic, upscale addition that always incites a double-take. Opt for the Cashmere or Graphite leather inside of the Murano, and it’s no wonder that this SUV is often labeled a luxury model.

Murano Interior with Cashmere Leather

While the exteriors of these two models may both be stylish, you’ll find that what lies beneath the hood and inside of the cabin have their differences. Both boast a 3.5-liter V6 engine, but the Murano’s prizes frugality more than the RX 350, if the 28 MPG hwy1 rating says anything. The RX clocks in a tick lower with only a 27 MPG hwy2 fuel rating. You’ll notice a discrepancy in numbers when it comes to cargo space, as well. The Murano designers clearly understand this basic fact: people come with stuff, and stuff requires room. It provides a hearty 32.1 cubic ft. of area3 behind the second row, whereas the RX 350 can only claim a meager 18.4 cubic ft. of storage space4 — that’s not a lot when you have five people in the same cabin!

Amenities are always a hot topic inside of vehicles these days, in particular, their integration with the latest and greatest smartphones. While the RX 350 does provide Siri® Eyes Free5, you’ll notice a distinct lack in anything more involved than that. The Murano pulls out the big guns and can be equipped with Apple CarPlayTM6, the big kahuna of integrative vehicle systems.

It’s time to feel the difference in this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Murano vs the 2017 Lexus RX near Attleboro, MA. Take the RX for a spin, prepare for the sticker shock, and then visit us at Milford Nissan where you can affordably grasp the wheel of a luxurious vehicle that provides all of the flair, thoughtful crafting, and amenities you need. We’re talking about the Murano, of course. We hope to see you soon!

Just all around excellent to deal with. No games, no high pressure sales tactics. Was able to do an end-of-lease purchase spending less than an hour total between phone calls and dealership visits. Eric P in financing was excellent, business-like, and supremely honest. I can not recommend them highly enough.

I couldn’t be happier with my purchase of a used 2017 Nissan leaf. Milford Nissan’s Staff —especially Chris and Guy were incredibly informative, helpful, accommodating and responsive along the entire process. I live in New Hampshire and have a very busy schedule – on top of the coronavirus situation-they helped me do the entire purchase onlineAnd over the phone and even brought the car to me at my town hall to finalize everything! I would wholeheartedly recommend this dealership to my friends and family.

I never knew a car-buying experience could actually be enjoyable! Jan Janiek was absolutely wonderful to work with. Unlike other dealerships, the folks at Milford Nissan made me feel comfortable and valued as a customer. I never felt pressured or rushed; I love that they didn't feel the need to "play the game" when negotiating, which is a tremendous relief! Jan gave me a full personalized tutorial of my new vehicle to make sure I felt comfortable with all the new features. I could tell that his customers' safety and satisfaction is a top priority. Thank you, Jan! I am very happy to be a part of the Milford Nissan family.

Had a vehicle ready and waiting for me to test drive when I got there. Once I got to signing, everything was smooth sailing. Very pleased with the deal I got and will be going back!

We recently bought a 2020 Nissan Armada from Tony Chamoun, General Manager. He was a dream to deal with. We are from out of state and this was our first time buying an online vehicle. Tony put us at ease on this purchase. He facetimes us to show us the vehicle. He was extremely great at communicating with us and keeping us informed on all the steps in buying the vehicle, receiving our money and transportation of the vehicle. I highly recommend Tony and his team at Milford Nissan. I dealt briefly with Jim Farrell, Sales Associate and he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable too. Great job Milford Nissan. We love our vehicle and you made the process seamless.

As a recent satisfied customer, I can’t say enough good things about the Milford Nissan dealership especially since my dealings with them were in the midst of the pandemic. In my initial telephone interactions their responses were prompt, clear and helpful making the ride to Milford worthwhile. Upon my arrival I was greeted by Eric Taylor, who made every effort to make me feel comfortable that all appropriate health precautions were being practiced while helping me identify the right vehicle. Eric was by far the most respectful, knowledgeable and genuine car salesman I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not only was he very familiar with the Nissan options, he was also patient with my questions and never made me feel rushed or pressured. Once I decided on a vehicle, he made the process as streamlined as possible. From negotiating my trade, to discussing financing, to coordinating the final logistics to get me in my new car, his professionalism was consistent. I don’t typically write reviews but buying a car through Milford Nissan, and in particular working with Eric, was an exceptionally smooth and pleasant transaction worthy of this review. In my opinion, you can’t ask for more from a car buying experience.

My family has bought 5, and soon to be 6 cars from Tony and I am not sure I can put into words what a great experience we have all had. Originally, we purchased a Nissan Armada as a family car and we had such a great experience with Tony that when it was time to buy a first car for my son, we came back. Well, kids being kids, my son managed to total the Nissan Rogue, not once but twice. Replacing the car was secondary to Tony - all he was concerned about was how my son was doing. I literally bought 3 Nissan Rogue's in less than 18 months and to say that the transaction was flawless is an under-statement. In fact, I believe my son got a big Tony hug after each new car! I spoke so highly of Tony and Milford Nissan that when my Dad's Infiniti lease was up, he too became a customer and I will attest that his review would be the same as mine. If you are interested in buying/leasing a car without the hassle you are used to from other dealers, and you want someone you feel is on your side, look no further. I promise you won't regret it one bit. Keep it up Tony and Milford Nissan! Who's next?
