The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Top safety scores and spaciousness are in place, even if the VW Routan doesn't have all the same utility and tech options of the related Chrysler minivans. Road manners are good--but when it comes to core minivan duties like seating and safety, the 2013 Nissan Quest falls behind every other minivan on the market.
