The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's less spacious and less flexible than before, but the 2012 Nissan Quest drives better than other minivans. It's not as flexible as some minivans, but the 2012 Toyota Sienna is large, safe, and still has options for four-cylinder power and all-wheel drive.
