Anyone who is searching for their next SUV has come to the right place. We know there are a lot of options out there for you to choose from, making the final decision trickier than you might want. In order to help you, we are looking at just two of the top competitors on the market today. They include the 2021 Nissan Murano and the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe. The Murano comes into the 2021 model year with Nissan Safety Shield 360, a few special edition packages, rear emergency braking, and a few exterior colors that we haven’t seen before! The Santa Fe tries to keep up with new styling, an updated interior, a few new safety features, and a new trim level in the lineup. Are you ready to figure out which of these vehicles is right for you? Keep reading down below where we go more in-depth with each of them!
You will be able to find one standard engine when you choose the 2021 Nissan Murano. This is great because it has allowed Nissan to really perfect this one engine, ensuring that you can get real capability, no matter the weather or terrain. This engine is a 3.5-liter V6, which can produce 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. Paired up with this engine is a continuously variable automatic transmission, which is one of the best CVTs on the market today. You can also choose all-wheel drive throughout the entire Murano lineup, making it perfect for anyone who wants added traction when they drive.
2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Power & Handling
One gasoline engine is also offered with the 2021 Santa Fe. This standard engine is a 2.5-liter inline-4, which, in its base configuration, produces 191 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. On a higher trim it can be upped to 277 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. The weak standard engine is fairly disappointing. You’ll also be getting FWD or AWD, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Nissan Murano Features & Design
You not only want a powerful SUV, but something that is comfortable that you can really rely on. That’s why we’re so impressed with the four trims that are offered with the Murano. Some of the standard features even include Nissan Safety Shield 360, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Available features include navigation, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, a dual-pane moonroof, ventilated front seats, driver’s seat position memory, traffic sign recognition, and heated/leather front and rear seats.
2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Features & Design
To try and keep up with the Murano, we’re looking at the Santa Fe’s feature lineup. Some of the standard features here include adaptive cruise control, wireless Apple CarPlay, and an eight-inch touchscreen. Available features include Blue Link, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, Nappa leather, a color head-up display, power-folding side mirrors, unique accents, heated/cooled front seats, and a surround-view blind-spot monitor.
The competition isn’t as close as some might have expected. The 2021 Nissan Murano just gives you a much better, and reliable standard configuration. The engine is powerful, and the features are everything you could possibly need when really trying to live your life to the fullest. Stop by our dealership and allow us to help you out!
