2015 Nissan Quest vs. Its Competition

2015 Nissan Quest
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Dodge Grand Caravan is preparing its exit from the minivan scene, but it's still around, and so is its Chrysler Town & Country kin.

The duo's Stow 'N Go seating remains a huge feature, one that creates a flat floor that converts the minivans from people movers to cargo haulers in a few seconds.

The Toyota Sienna works well for drivers in colder climates, thanks to its available all-wheel drive.

The Honda Odyssey becomes expensive quickly, but offers plenty of space, options and practicality.

The Mazda 5 is small for the segment, but has excellent driving dynamics and a considerably lower price than its competitors.
