Earning an USN Overall Score of 8.7 out of 10, the 2011 Juke is a great option if you’re looking for “an alternative to a small car,” according to U.S. News & World Report writer Cherise Threewitt.
Securing a higher spot on the list and USN Overall Score of 9.0 out of 10, the 2010 Nissan Murano was praised for its V6 engine rated at 265 horsepower and adept handling.
“Inside, a lot of shoppers (and professional auto critics for that matter) were surprised to find an upscale and comfortable interior, perfect for five passengers and nicer than most competitors’ cabins,” reports Threewitt. “It’s not really up to us to decide whether or not the Murano’s exterior styling has aged gracefully, but if it works for you then you might just find yourself a deal.”
The editors at Kelley Blue Book noted the power, comfortable interior, and lower price tag of the 2010 Murano. They noted in their expert review:
“Fresh from its complete makeover last year, the 2010 Nissan Murano joins the crossover utility vehicle market with a sharp new design, an improved powertrain and new standard and optional technological features,” reports KBB. “Although the new Murano is still roughly the same size as the first generation and still lacks a third row seat, it does offer a level of interior sophistication bordering on Infiniti-grade luxury, something many of its competitors can’t claim.”
