More awards for the dramatic crossover By ,

Eye-popping style and premium substance at a surprisingly low price is exactly what the new Nissan Murano offers.

Is it the best midsize SUV of 2016? The folks at thought so following a rigorous evaluation that also included the Ford Edge (2nd), Kia Sorento (3rd), Hyundai Santa Fe Sport (4th), and Jeep Grand Cherokee (5th).

“The Murano is the closest option to a luxury SUV in this group, with a level of cabin materials and styling flair that’s largely missing among the others,” said Editor-in-Chief Patrick Olsen. “The Murano’s high points extend beyond its quality interior. The SUV is packed with technology and family-friendly features, and thanks to its V6 power the Murano is a blast to drive.”
