You can only tow 1500 pounds with the Murano. If the Murano would not look so good, I'm not sure Nissan would sell so many! They also have great discounts. The Outback is is more traditional and very functional (built-in retractable crossbars, higher ground clearance, X-Mode AWD, directional LED head lights). However it's missing the wow factor (no pano sunroof, no around view monitor, no foot operated tailgate, etc.) It's hard for me to tell you which one is better as it depends on many factors. My neighbor's wife has a 2018 Outback Limited H6 and his brother-in-law has a Murano; he finds the latter more comfortable but you would have to make your own comparison as we're all different.
If you want to keep the vehicle for a long time, I would recommend the Outback. The H6 has proven to be very reliable vs the 2.5L. Good luck with your choice, two great vehicles IMO but quite different.
