Smaller than the Murano but with the optional 250HP turbo on top trims, I would certainly consider it! 2020 turbo models bring a slight bump in torque 320 vs 310. Pretty good reviews but a smaller than average trunk and stiffer ride could be a downer. Apparently very quiet and quite luxurious. If anyone tried it, please post your comments.

Did a quick read, not impressed. Especially after starting the review with: "all trim levels include a new key fob design and a new font for all badging and interior text".

Yes, very important info, NOT.

Have a good day.

A few months ago, I took a look at the GT and Signature models on the lot of my local Mazda dealer. I did not sit in them nor took one for a road test because of COVID-19; since then, I decided to keep my Murano and had the CEL finally fixed and new front brakes replaced.

I found the GT white interior too light and the Signature dark brown, well, too dark...Perhaps the upcoming 2021 100th Anniversary Edition with red leather would be the perfect choice (white pearl paint only); it would certainly look upscale à la Lexus/Audi/BMW/M-B, etc. They will probably ask a small fortune for that jewel...!

The Mazdas have had consistently good road test reports in every automotive mag I have read for the past few years. I'd give it serious consideration.

I had a look at the 2021 100th Anniversary Edition on the dealer lot and yes it looks really nice with the red leather and carpets. It's just a little more than the Signature. It was marked "Sold" and they had no other on the lot. My feeling is that they will sell like hot cakes. My heart says go for it but my head says are you crazy? It would cost me about CDN $30,000 to trade in my very low mileage 2017.5 Murano...

The devil is in the details as they say; no panoramic sunroof, no hood struts, no hammock style cargo net (I've had that in all my cars for the last 30 years) and in Canada we don't get the new 10.25" infotainment screen. Perhaps the next gen will address these issues.

If I may add...Also missing wireless charging pad, hands free tailgate, rear passengers blinds. All this comes on most luxury vehicles and even on some non luxury ones like Kia/Hyundai to name one. I'm picky, I know!
