To get started, we’ll head under the hood and check out what powers these SUVs.

A More Powerful Ride

The 2022 Murano and CR-V certainly have some things in common. They both provide a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, and offer available all-wheel drive systems.1

As you can see, they start to differ when it comes to engine power, as the Murano produces exceptionally more horsepower and torque capability than the Honda CR-V.

You’ll want to make sure your SUV is packed with features that are sure to keep you entertained no matter how long the drive ahead.

Larger, More Advanced Infotainment

With the Murano, you’ll get a standard NissanConnect® 8-inch color display with multi-touch control, and standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. This means you’ll be able to easily connect your smartphone to the audio system and stream music, make phone calls, send texts, and access your favorite navigation apps via simple voice commands.

Over in the CR-V, you’ll get a much smaller standard 5-inch color LCD screen, and the largest display screen they offer still doesn’t compare, because it only comes in at seven inches. Also, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ don’t come standard, so you’d have to upgrade to a higher trim level for that level of infotainment.

Finally, we’ll take a look at just how much room you’ll find in these SUVs.

More Room For Passengers

While both vehicles can comfortably fit up to five riders, everyone will have more space to spread out and relax in the Murano than they would over in the CR-V.

Cargo Space

When you pack up for a weekend getaway or head home from the grocery story, you’ll probably want to make sure you have plenty of trunk space for anything you need to bring along. We found that the Nissan Murano lets you pack in a bit more:

  • Nissan Murano Cargo Volume: 14.8 cubic feet
  • Honda CR-V Cargo Volume: 13.1 cubic feet

This difference means that the Murano might be able to fit an extra bag or larger gear you need to bring with you.
