Both the F-Pace and Murano have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The F-Pace has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The Murano’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the F-Pace. But it costs extra on the Murano.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the F-Pace’s standard All Surface Progress Control allows you to creep down safely. The Murano doesn’t offer All Surface Progress Control.

The F-Pace R-Sport/S’ lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane and gently nudges the vehicle back towards its lane. The Murano doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

The F-Pace has standard InControl, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Murano doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

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

The F-Pace comes with a full 5 year/60,000 mile basic warranty, which covers the entire truck and includes 24 hour roadside assistance. The Murano’s 3 year/36,000 mile basic warranty expires 2 years and 24,000 miles sooner.

The F-Pace’s corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the Murano’s (6 vs. 5 years).

Jaguar pays for scheduled maintenance on the F-Pace for 5 years and 60,000 miles. Jaguar will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Nissan doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Murano.

To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the F-Pace has a standard 800-amp battery. The Murano’s 550-amp battery isn’t as powerful.

The battery on the F-Pace is in the trunk, which protects it from hot underhood temperatures which can degrade battery life. By keeping the F-Pace’s battery 20 to 30 degrees cooler, its life is increased by years. The Murano’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.

The F-Pace’s optional 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 80 more horsepower (340 vs. 260) and 92 lbs.-ft. more torque (332 vs. 240) than the Murano’s 3.5 DOHC V6. The F-Pace S’ standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 120 more horsepower (380 vs. 260) and 99 lbs.-ft. more torque (339 vs. 240) than the Murano’s 3.5 DOHC V6.

The F-Pace’s 2.0 turbo diesel produces 78 lbs.-ft. more torque (318 vs. 240) than the Murano’s 3.5 DOHC V6.

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace with its standard Diesel engine gets better fuel mileage than the Murano (26 city/33 hwy vs. 21 city/28 hwy).

Regenerative brakes improve the F-Pace’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Murano doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the F-Pace’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Murano doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the Murano (255/60R18 vs. 235/65R18). The F-Pace’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Murano (265/40R22 vs. 235/65R18).

The F-Pace Base’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 60 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Murano’s standard 65 series tires. The F-Pace’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the Murano Platinum’s 55 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace offers optional 22-inch wheels. The Murano’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

The F-Pace offers an optional full size spare tire so your trip isn’t interrupted by a flat. A full size spare isn’t available on the Murano, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The F-Pace offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Murano’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-Pace’s wheelbase is 2 inches longer than on the Murano (113.2 inches vs. 111.2 inches).

The F-Pace’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (51% to 49%) than the Murano’s (58.8% to 41.2%). This gives the F-Pace more stable handling and braking.

The F-Pace handles at .86 G’s, while the Murano Platinum AWD pulls only .82 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The F-Pace executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.9 seconds quicker than the Murano Platinum AWD (25.9 seconds @ .69 average G’s vs. 27.8 seconds @ .64 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the F-Pace has a 1.5 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Murano (8.4 vs. 6.9 inches), allowing the F-Pace to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo area than the Murano with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 32.1 cubic feet).

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S’ available cargo door can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The Murano doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its cargo door, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S offers an optional heads-up display which projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Murano doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The power windows standard on both the F-Pace and the Murano have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the F-Pace is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Murano prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

The F-Pace’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Murano’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to open or close them fully.

The F-Pace’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Murano S’ standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted. The Murano SV/SL/Platinum’s intermittent wipers change speed with vehicle speed, but can’t turn on and off or change speed based on changing rainfall.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the F-Pace to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Murano doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The F-Pace offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Murano doesn’t offer headlight washers.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the F-Pace detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Murano doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the F-Pace offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Murano doesn’t offer cornering lights.

The F-Pace’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Nissan only offers heated mirrors on the Murano SL/Platinum.

The F-Pace Premium/Prestige/R-Sport/S has standard automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Murano offers an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

The F-Pace R-Sport/S’ optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Murano doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
