Does the 2016 Nissan Quest Price Mean Sacrificing Key Features?

June 23rd, 2016 by

2016 Honda OdysseyThe 2016 Nissan Quest is just one of the minivans that families might consider, especially given its relatively low starting price of $26,580 (MSRP). That’s a great price for a family-hauler, but will your money buy you everything you need? Will a good price translate to good value?

The 2016 Honda Odyssey LX is priced at $29,400 MSRP,* with EX, SE, EX-L, Touring, and Touring Elite trims also available. To see how its standard features stack up against those of the 2016 Nissan Quest, read on.

Premium Features as Standard

The 2016 Nissan Quest’s low starting price frequently begins to lose its shine for drivers once they take a look at the equipment list, particularly if they’ve already taken a look at the 2016 Honda Odyssey. The Odyssey offers the following amenities as standard, but you won’t receive them with an entry-level Quest:

  • Rearview camera
  • Automatic headlights
  • Privacy glass
  • Power driver seat
  • Infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen interface

Drivers would need to upgrade to a higher-priced trim level of the Nissan Quest in order to receive just some of what the Odyssey is prepared to equip as standard.

Room to Breathe

With the 2016 Honda Odyssey, you won’t just be able to take advantage of more features—you’ll literally be receiving more minivan. Here’s how the interior specs match up against each other:

  • Standard Cargo Volume: The Odyssey takes up to 38.4 cubic feet of cargo behind the third-row, while the Quest manages an unimpressive 25.7.
  • Extended Cargo Volume: Flip the second- and third-row seats to enjoy up to 148.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the Odyssey versus a meager 108.4 in the Quest.

The Odyssey continues to put more at your command beneath the hood, with up to 250 lb-ft of torque hp to call upon versus only 240 with the Nissan Quest. Even the 2016 Toyota Sienna only comes in at 245 lb-ft.
