The 2015 Honda Crosstour and the 2015 Nissan Murano both offer a compelling choice for drivers in the Schaumburg and Elgin, IL area. These crossovers put utility first but still provide the smooth car-like ride and admirable fuel economy that you want. Take a closer look to see how they really compare!

Fuel Economy

When it comes to fuel economy, a top priority for many Chicagoland drivers, the 2015 Honda Crosstour comes out ahead. When equipped with the 2.4L four-cylinder and five-speed automatic, the Crosstour is rated by the EPA at 31 mpg highway and 22 mpg city*. The EPA only rates the 2015 Nissan Murano at 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway, making the Crosstour the clear winner when it comes to efficiency.


The 2015 Honda Crosstour gives you the option of an efficient four-cylinder or a powerful V6 that makes 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. The only available engine in the 2015 Nissan Murano is a V6 that makes 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque.


The 2015 Honda Crosstour will set you back $27,530 MSRP in the most basic trim level, while the 2015 Nissan Murano starts at $29,560 MSRP. Think of all the things you could do with that extra $2,000!

Exterior and Interior Features

On the outside, the 2015 Honda Crosstour is equipped with standard features that include:

  • A power moonroof
  • Heated exterior mirrors
  • Automatic headlights
  • Fog lights

You won’t find those features on the 2015 Nissan Murano.

  • A rearview camera
  • Floor mats
  • A power driver seat
