Land Rover Discovery Sport vs Nissan Murano

The 2019 Discovery Sport and Nissan Murano are two of the most highly sought-after crossover SUVs on the market today. Both offer capable powertrains, spacious cabins, and plenty of technology to enjoy.

So, if you're shopping for a crossover SUV near Hardeeville, Bluffton, or Hilton Head Island, you'll want to pay close attention to this car comparison. In it, we at Land Rover Hilton Head will show you how these vehicles measure up to their competition!

Discovery Sport vs Murano: Performance

You'll have plenty of power behind the wheel of the 2019 Discovery Sport or Murano. The Nissan SUV has a 3.5L V6 under the hood. With 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque on tap, it provides adequate acceleration for driving around town and running your most essential errands.

The range-topping turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder under the hood of the Discovery Sport is even more robust. It kicks out 286 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque to make your drive a more thrilling experience!

Test drivers have found that both these SUVs offer a comfortable ride and remain composed around turns.

Off-Roading Prowess

When it comes to off-roading, there's a major difference between these two SUVs. The Murano was built for the roads, although with features like available all-wheel drive (AWD), it can handle light off-roading in certain circumstances.

The Discovery Sport, on the other hand, is just as comfortable off the beaten path as it is on the roads. It offers standard four-wheel drive (4WD) along with a host of off-road technologies to help it handle virtually any terrain with ease.

Terrain Response® especially comes in handy. This feature offers modes for many driving conditions, from Sand to Mud/Ruts and Grass/Gravel/Snow. The Murano, unfortunately, lacks these selectable drive modes.

Advanced Technology for the Road

The Land Rover Discovery Sport and Nissan Murano come with plenty of standard technology. The sleek InControl® Touch Pro™ system in the Land Rover SUV features an available 10.2-inch touchscreen, while the Murano uses an available 8-inch NissanConnect® touchscreen. Both are intuitive and easy to use.

One of our favorite features in the Discovery Sport is the head-up display. This system projects key vehicle information on the windshield, so you can see your speed, gear position, navigation directions, and more without looking away from the road. This is one feature you won't find in the Nissan SUV.
