2016 Nissan Quest vs. Its Competition

2015 Nissan Quest
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Nissan Quest drives well but lacks the space and safety most buyers desire.

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

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

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

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica plays to all the traditional minivan strengths, while it strikes out in exciting new directions in styling and in plug-in hybrid technology.
7.8
The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is an exceptional value among minivans, but some crash-test scores are cause for concern.

The 2016 Honda Odyssey stands at the top of the minivan heap, with more design flair and more driving enjoyment than most other three-row rivals.
8.0
The 2016 Kia Sedona is a viable alternative to the four top-selling minivans, with a quiet and spacious interior, a very comfortable high-end seating option, a smooth ride, and a modern infotainment system.

The 2016 Toyota Sienna posts some of the best gas-mileage and crash-test scores among minivans; only the Chrysler vans are more flexible.
