The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Nissan Quest isn't the safest or most practical vehicle in the segment, but it is one of the better driver's choices. The 2014 Mazda 5 offers the flexibility, space, and versatility of a minivan, but with the personality of a sporty small car, it's a lot more enjoyable for the commute.
