Safety

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Nissan Murano are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar I-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

In the past twenty years hundreds of infants and young children have died after being left in vehicles, usually by accident. When turning the vehicle off, drivers of the Murano are reminded to check the back seat if they opened the rear door before starting out. The I-Pace doesn’t offer a back seat reminder.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The Murano (except S/SV) offers optional Rear Automatic Braking which use rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The I-Pace doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Both the Murano and the I-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available all-wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, and with its optional front crash prevention system, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the Murano the rating of “Top Pick” for 2017, a rating granted to only 139 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The I-Pace has not been tested, yet.

Warranty

There are almost 7 times as many Nissan dealers as there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Murano’s warranty.

Reliability

J.D. Power and Associates rated the Murano third among midsize suvs in their 2018 Initial Quality Study. The I-Pace isn’t in the top three in its category.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Nissan vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Nissan 10th in initial quality, above the industry average. With 63 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 30th, below the industry average.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Nissan vehicles are more reliable than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Nissan 10th in reliability, above the industry average. With 26 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 20th.

Fuel Economy and Range

The Murano’s maximum EPA estimated driving range on a full tank of fuel is 532 miles, after which it can be refueled at any gas station in minutes. The I-Pace’s range is only 234 miles, after which the minimum recharge time is 1 hour and 25 minutes for only a 80% charge at a specially configured quick charge station not available in most areas. A full recharge at a conventional charging station can take up to 12 hours and 54 minutes.

Tires and Wheels

The Murano has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The I-Pace doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.

Suspension and Handling

For better maneuverability, the Murano’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the I-Pace’s (38.7 feet vs. 39.3 feet).

Chassis

The Nissan Murano may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 800 to 950 pounds less than the Jaguar I-Pace.

Passenger Space

The Murano has 1.9 inches more front shoulder room, 1.7 inches more rear headroom, 3.7 inches more rear legroom and 4.3 inches more rear shoulder room than the I-Pace.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Murano’s rear seats recline. The I-Pace’s rear seats don’t recline.

Cargo Capacity

The Murano has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the I-Pace with its rear seat up (32.1 vs. 25.3 cubic feet). The Murano has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the I-Pace with its rear seat folded (67 vs. 51 cubic feet).

The Murano’s cargo area is larger than the I-Pace’s in almost every dimension:
