U.S. News & World Report evidently thinks very highly of the 2016 Nissan Murano. It already received the “Best Cars for the Money” award from the publication, and it was just announced that the Murano is also the recipient of the “Best 2-Row SUV for Families” award.

The Murano’s luxurious interior and low price first caught the eye of U.S. News, but its safety ratings and interior space led to the Best for Families award.

U.S. News editors wrote, “The Murano, however, isn’t just a great value. It’s also our Best 2-Row SUV for Families because it has the leading combination of interior space, available family-friendly features, and safety and reliability ratings in its class.”

The 2016 Nissan Murano offers available technology features like NissanConnect with Navigation, Around View monitor, and the Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System. Safety features include Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), and Driver Attention Alert (DAA).

After earning the top spot in the 2015 J.D. Power APEAL Study Midsize SUV category, the Murano has quickly become one of the best choices for consumers in its segment.

“Given its bold new design, the APEAL Study results showed that exterior and interior styling are by far the leading purchase reasons for Murano buyers,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing and Operations for Nissan North America.

The Nissan Murano’s redesign offers a sleeker, more refined silhouette and a more comfortable cabin. New features include advanced Zero Gravity seating and a Power Panoramic Moonroof. Along with the Murano, the APEAL Study also recognized the 2015 Altima, which tied for second in the Midsize Car segment and 2015 Frontier, which finished third in the Midsize Pickup segment.

To determine which vehicle received the honor, WardsAuto editors spent months driving 42 different vehicles and evaluating their interiors based on several criteria, including ergonomics, driver information, fit-and-finish, materials, value, safety, comfort and design harmony.

The 2015 Murano immediately stood out to the editors because of its luxurious styling and materials.

“First time I saw the new Murano interior, I was blown away by the pearlescent film that’s used to lovely effect on the doors, instrument panel, center console and armrest,” said Tom Murphy, executive editor, WardsAuto World. “The rest of the interior is brilliantly executed as well, from the smooth, flowing lines of the instrument panel to the ample cargo hold. Beige interiors often are perceived as boring, but this one is stylish and contemporary while achieving a serenity uncommon among midsize CUVs.”
