Discover how the Land Rover Discovery Sport Stays Miles Ahead of the Nissan Murano

We know that a great deal of automotive shoppers on the hunt for the perfect SUV are looking for strong capabilities, impressive versatility, a striking design and a sophisticated interior with the latest in automotive technology.

If this is an accurate description for your vehicle-purchasing process throughout the Savannah, Hardeeville, Garden City, Bluffton, Hilton Head Island and Charleston areas, we welcome you to discover how the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport certainly wins the race against the competing 2017 Nissan Murano.

We think that you'll soon realize that the new Discovery Sport checks off all of the right boxes in your search for a rugged, refined and versatile SUV.

Rugged Capabilities

When you are behind the wheel of the new Discovery Sport model, you will be able to conquer nearly any off-road paths or harsh weather conditions confidently! The advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) Terrain Response® system by Land Rover is included standard, as is the innovative Hill Descent Control (HDC®) feature. Take your pick between General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud & Ruts and Sand modes depending on the terrain that you are driving on!

The Nissan Murano indeed offers a basic all-wheel drive system, but it is nowhere near as capable as that of the Land Rover's. It also does not come standard, so you'll have to pay extra if you desire to ever drive off of the beaten path.

The Discovery Sport is powered by a strong and all-aluminum 2.0-liter turbo engine combined with a lively 9-speed automatic transmission, offering an efficient and enjoyable drive on both paved streets as well as off-road trails. And you're in luck if you need to tow, as a towing capacity of up to 4,409 pounds proves to handle heavy duty jobs.

Refined Interior Cabin

Another key difference that sets the Discovery Sport ahead of the Nissan Murano is the interior. From the second you step inside the cabin, you will be surrounded with a plethora of sophisticated amenities that the Land Rover brand generously equipped this SUV with. If you have a taste for the finer things in life, you will love experiencing the highest levels of luxury that the Discovery Sport has to offer. The new Nissan Murano simply cannot keep up in this regard, and a great deal of its optional features can get expensive quick.

Available for this luxurious vehicle consists of high-tech and refined features such as a push-to-start button, heated and cooled leather seats, the InControl® Touch™ infotainment system with full smartphone connectivity, the Meridian™ Digital Surround Sound System with 16 speakers, an informative Heads-Up Driving Display with holographic techniques, configurable ambient interior lighting along with so much more!

You can equip the Nissan Murano with some of these features, however some are not available at all, and the ones that are again will definitely cost you extra. While the interior cabin of the Murano is definitely an enjoyable place to be, it can't compare with the remarkable sense of genuine luxury that a Land Rover is so well-known and admired for.

Outstanding Versatility

Thanks to comfortable and roomy seating for up to 7 people, a class-exclusive third row of seats, and a whopping 60 cubic feet of cargo space, you and your family will easily be able to pack up all of your belongings into this SUV without breaking a sweat. Cargo management and seating configurations are versatile enough so you can adapt to any situation you may find in your path.

You can finally go on that adventurous road trip that you have been planning, and the Discovery Sport is the ideal SUV to be your reliable travel companion! With the Nissan Murano, the third row of seating is not available at all, so you'll have to make other arrangements if you have more passengers to drive around.
