In this episode, we test out the fuel economy in the all new 2016 Nissan Murano. Featuring one of the most dramatic redesigns we've seen in this segment, the Murano certainly stands out from the competition. Although only slightly larger than the cheaper Rogue, the Murano is a premium Nissan offering with more power output from a larger engine. Similar to other Nissans however, the Murano features a similar CVT transmission that yields decent fuel economy numbers.
Our tester was equipped with a 3.5-litre 6-cylinder engine. Our test yielded 671 km on a full tank of gas and gave a fuel economy rating of 10.4L/100km.
After using up a half tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $60 at a fuel cost of $0.99/liter.
