The Buick Envision vs Nissan Murano
Crossover SUV’s are definitely popular vehicles, and for many good reasons. Taking into account their off-roading capabilities, additional cargo volume, spacious interiors, and other notable features, this comes as no surprise. Noticing the popularity of these vehicles it also doesn’t shock us that a number of manufacturers are putting their best foot forward in this class. There are two vehicles in particular that are neck-in-neck in the competition: the Buick Envision and the Nissan Murano. While these vehicles line up closely to each other in terms of notable features, we will highlight some of the Envisions selling points in a quick comparison.
Safety is of course one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a new vehicle. The term “safety first” definitely holds true for the Buick Envision, which resulted in its high praise from NHTSA and IIHS and landed it a title as a Top Safety Pick+. This was as a direct result of it earning the highest score of “Advanced” in its front crash prevention test. In an impressive test of the vehicle’s automatic braking feature, the Envision successfully slowed 9 mph when it detected a collision was going to occur. The Driver Confidence package is standard on the Buick Envision, and plays a huge role in the safety of this vehicle in the best way possible. Features such as Stolen Vehicle Tracking, Theft Deterrent Radio, and In-Vehicle Assistance are safety features that the Nissan Murano does not offer, yet come standard on the Envision.
While the base model Buick Envision is on the market at $33,995 compared to $29,740 of the Nissan Murano, the generous warranty package that comes along with the Envision makes it well worth it. . The warranty is as follows: Powertrain – 71 months/70,000 miles, Roadside Assistance – 71 months/70,000 miles, Free Maintenance – 24 months/24,000 miles, Corrosion – 72 months/unlimited miles. The Nissan Murano offers the following: Bumper to Bumper – 36 months/36,000 miles, Powertrain – 60 months/60,000 miles, Roadside Assistance – 36 months/36,000 miles, and Corrosion – 60 months/unlimited miles. This is definitely a factor that will sway shoppers in favor of the Buick Envision, as they will end up saving money down the road in the case of an incident.
Buick has long been known for producing luxurious, safe, and trustworthy vehicles, and the Buick Envision holds true to this standard and is one we highly recommend for the upcoming year.
