2016 Chevy Traverse vs 2016 Nissan Murano

Crossovers are continuing to gain popularity these days, especially ones that have impressive interiors and a strong fuel economy. Consumers want that car-like ride but the ability to tow and carry lots of stuff when they need it. When in the market for a new crossover, it's best to decide what's important to you. Do you want a crossover with power or one that gets better gas mileage? Do you want something within a budget or something with all the latest technology? We compared the 2016 Chevy Traverse against the 2016 Nissan Murano in hopes that it will help you narrow down what you are looking for.

When it comes to these two crossovers, they couldn't be more different, especially in size. The 2016 Chevy Traverse was made for those who need lots of space, whether that be for the family or for the carpool lane. On the other hand, the 2016 Nissan Murano is a little on the smaller side for a crossover, still offering space in the second row but lacking that third row of seats or the available cargo capacity to keep it on par with the Traverse.
