Subaru Outback vs. Nissan Murano

The Pre-Owned Subaru Outback vs. The 2019 Nissan Murano: See how this used SUV bests even the latest models on the market!

The Subaru brand name has always commanded respect in the world of SUVs. But if you're like a lot of drivers here in the greater Terrell, TX area, you're interested in a new ride, but aren't sure you want to shell out for something that just rolled off the assembly line. Fortunately, as one of the premier used Subaru dealers serving drivers from Forney to  Rockwall these days, we know exactly where you're coming from.

We know that a new SUV isn't always the right fit for every budget, which is why we've always got plenty of used Subaru SUVs in stock at our Terrell, TX dealership. In fact, one of the most popular models in our pre-owned Subaru inventory is the used Subaru Outback, and we think you'll love how well it fares against even the latest models in the market.

Subaru Outback vs. Nissan Murano

Powertrain and Performance

Now, you might be wondering how a pre-owned Subaru Outback could go up against a new 2019 Nissan Murano, or any new SUV for that matter, and come out on top? Well, let's dive right into the performance credentials of these two cars, and we think you'll see how our used Subaru models for sale here in Terrell, TX have a distinct edge.

As far as powertrains go, the new 2019 Nissan Murano has a slight edge on the used Subaru Outback, given that its 3.5-liter V6 engine puts out up to 260 horsepower. But even then, the used Subaru Outback doesn't lag far behind, as its available SUBARU BOXER 3.6-liter V6 engine churns out a respectable 256 horsepower.

But power is only half the story of the contest between these two SUVs, there's also efficiency to consider. And in that regard, the used Subaru Outback handily beats the 2019 Nissan Murano. When properly equipped, a used Subaru Outback can achieve up to an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city / 32 mpg highway. By comparison, the new 2019 Nissan Murano can barely manage an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city / 38 mpg highway. This makes a used Subaru Outback the clear choice for folks who not only want to save on their purchase, but also save money in the long run.

And if all that weren't enough to entice you to the used Subaru Outback, it should be mentioned that it comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which provides greater control and dynamic support in inclement road and driving conditions, such as unpaved surfaces or travel in the rain. Unfortunately for those shopping for a 2019 Nissan Murano these days, all-wheel drive is only available as an option with that model, so you'll have to pay more to get it.

Safety and Security

Subaru has always been a forward-thinking force in the car industry for its approach to designing cars with driver's security in mind. And you'll see that design philosophy fully represented with the used Subaru Outback models for sale at our dealership near Rockwall, TX. With available safety technology as part of its Subaru EyeSight safety suite that includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and much more, it's no wonder that the Subaru Outback has been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for the past several years running.

However, while the new 2019 Nissan Murano offers many comparable safety features, it simply doesn't measure up in practice. In fact, the new Nissan Murano didn't even earn a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety this model year, which is telling to say the least.

Test the mettle of our pre-owned Subaru Outback SUVs near Forney, TX for yourself

Now, we may seem biased, but in our honest opinion, there's no reason to choose a new 2019 Nissan Murano when you have the compelling options available to you with our used Subaru Outback inventory. So, if you're interested in saving on your next SUV and still getting a great ride out of the deal, drop by Randall Noe Pre-Owned Super Center to take one out for a spin today.
