Testing, which included round-robin expert evaluation on a set course, a mileage drive to determine real world MPG and testing by an in-market family, resulted in the following ranking:
- 2016 Nissan Murano
- 2016 Ford Edge
- 2016 Kia Sorento
- 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
- 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
"The Murano is the closest option to a luxury SUV in this group, with a level of cabin materials and styling flair that's largely missing among the others," said Olsen. "The Murano's high points extend beyond its quality interior. The SUV is packed with technology and family-friendly features, and thanks to its V-6 power, the Murano is a blast to drive."
