The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's less spacious and less flexible than before, but the 2012 Nissan Quest drives better than other minivans. The aging Kia Sedona still offers the usual minivan virtues of people-carrying and cargo-toting, but there are newer, more flexible, safer choices.
