2015 Honda Odyssey vs. Nissan Quest
Just because it has seating for five doesn’t mean that it’s the most comfortable, which is why the minivan is such a popular option for families in Miami, Coral Gables, and Gladeview. But with so many models to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you?
In this 2015 Honda Odyssey vs. Nissan Quest vehicle comparison, our team at Braman Honda explores the different design, technology, and safety features of both family vans so you can decide which is a better fit for you.
Honda Odyssey vs. Nissan Quest: Interior Design
The interior of the Honda Odyssey has been carefully built and designed using soft-touch surfaces and quality materials. In terms of space, the Odyssey has a lot of it. In fact, you’ll find 148.5 cubic feet of total cargo volume and 172.6 cubic feet of total passenger volume for up to eight passengers in the EX trim. The 2015 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite features a convenient vacuum built into the rear cargo area that can easily reach the front row seats.
The 2015 Nissan Quest doesn’t have an available vacuum built into the design of the van, so you’ll have to resort to other means, such as your local car wash, for a quick interior cleaning. In terms of seating, the Nissan Quest has limited seating for up to seven passengers. Even cargo room takes a dip compared to the Honda Odyssey, with the Nissan Quest offering just 108.4 cubic feet of cargo volume.
Technology of the Honda Odyssey and Nissan Quest
There are a lot of things to consider when looking at technology packages for your minivan, but arguably one of the most important aspects is the entertainment package for your back seat passengers. The 2015 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite has a 16.2-inch Honda DVD Ultrawide Rear Entertainment System with HDMI® Technology. That means your passengers can enjoy a movie together or split the screen and connect a compatible gaming system or other media player.
The Nissan Quest comes with its own DVD Entertainment System – an 11-inch DVD monitor – and although the system can accommodate video game play, it only provides RCA jacks, not HDMI®.
Odyssey and Quest Safety Features
The 2015 Honda Odyssey was named a 2015 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The 2015 Nissan Quest wasn’t. In fact, the 2015 Nissan Quest received a poor crashworthiness rating in small overlap front and an acceptable rating for roof strength. The child seat anchors (LATCH) ease of use, meanwhile, got the 2015 Nissan Quest a marginal rating.
