Most minivans are about going fun places with the kids, or making sure the kids have fun along the way, but the 2015 Nissan Quest lets the driver have some fun too. If you live in Alabama, in or near Anniston, the place to buy one is Benton Nissan of Oxford.
The 2015 Honda Odyssey tries to make minivans fun to drive too, but going head to head against the Quest it just loses in a few key comparisons.
Both of these minivans are powered by smooth and powerful V6 motors, but the Nissan puts out 12 useful horsepower more than the 248 Honda has. Combine that with the more efficient CVT transmission and the Quest is slightly faster to 60 mph, while getting almost the same highway mileage and slightly better city mileage, according to EPA estimates.
You want to drive the safest minivan to protect the kids in the back. The Nissan Quest and the Honda Odyssey both score “good” ratings in IIHS moderate frontal offset and side crash tests. Part of being safe is avoiding the accident, and the Quest will stop from 60 mph in 125 feet, 6 less than the Honda can do it. The Quest also has a slightly smaller turning radius too, so it is more maneuverable with an almost sporty feel from behind the wheel.
The Quest is almost 2 inches narrower and not as long, yet it packs an extra 5 cubic feet of passenger space inside. Nissan uses this to give you more headroom in all 3 rows, meaning full grown adults can sit in the 3rd seat. Nissan also gives drivers several inches more legroom than Honda, so this is the van for taller families.
If you need a minivan, why not buy the one that is the best from behind the wheel, not behind the DVD entertainment system? You’ll find the 2015 Nissan Quest is the most fun to drive minivan around, and all it will take is a quick drive at Benton Nissan in Oxford, AL to convince you.View Inventory
