The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's less spacious and less flexible than before, but the 2012 Nissan Quest drives better than other minivans. The 2012 Honda Odyssey is the priciest of the minivans, but innovative seating and excellent handling set it apart from all the rest.
