Discovery Sport vs Nissan Murano

Explore What Sets the Discovery Sport Apart from the Competition in Columbia, SC

While the Land Rover name has built a reputation for offering opulent driving experiences to drivers around the world, our staff at Land Rover Columbia has been able to win over interested SUV buyers with our inventory of Land Rover Discovery Sport models. As one of the more budget-friendly vehicles in the brand's model lineup, drivers from Lexington, Irmo, Cayce, and Augusta, GA have been able to take this superb SUV into consideration as the successor to their current ride. As a result, models such as the Nissan Murano have been forced to handle the pressure from our well-equipped Discovery Sport SUVs - making the market segment even more competitive in the local area.

Land Rover Discovery Sport vs Nissan Murano

  • One of the most important factors behind the Land Rover brand is the ability to conquer any terrain or road condition that stands in your way. Thanks to the Advanced All-Wheel Drive Terrain Response® system that comes equipped as a standard feature within the Discovery Sport, interested customers can transition between the vehicle's typical handling, Grass/Gravel/Snow conditions, as well as Sand, Mud & Ruts, and even sharp descents with Hill Descent Control. The Murano, on the other hand, includes a standard all-wheel drive system that is better for idyllic situations.
  • Both models come with a sole powertrain under their respective hoods, while their performances are similar yet strikingly different. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder of the Discovery Sport rides impressively well with a 240-horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque performance - complete with a 9-speed automatic transmission and the superb Haldex all-wheel drive system. The Nissan Murano is able to impress with a 3.5-liter V6, which can produce 260-horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. While Nissan's SUV can offer more power with less torque, the ride quality of the Land Rover still proves to be the victor.
  • As a more sophistated model for local drivers, the Discovery Sport is eager to stand out with its interior stylings. From the start of the engine at the push of a button, to the InControl® infotainment system, Meridian™ 16-speaker Digital Surround Sound System, and holographic Heads-Up Display for drivers, there is no lack of lavishness for our owners to experience. The Murano, while commendable, is simply out of its class in this regard, with its available features not able to come close to the unique capabilities of the Land Rover.
  • If you're on the hunt for a vehicle with plenty of seating for up to 7 adult passengers, made possible by its exclusive third-row of seating, then the Land Rover Discovery will surely stand out in the local area. While the Murano can only seat up to 5 passengers, you and your family can rest assured with greater seating potential and a hearty 66.9 cubic feet of cargo volume with both rows of seats folded down.
