2012 Honda Odyssey vs. 2012 Nissan Quest

2012 Honda OdysseyIf you’re in search of a quality minivan, look no further than the 2012 Honda Odyssey, available at our Honda dealership near Longmont. Here at Fisher Honda, we’re trying to dismantle the notion that minivans are solely for families, and the latest Odyssey does a great job of providing a quality vehicle for any driver.

There are quite a few minivans on the market today, and while we’re confident in the performance of the Honda Odyssey over the competition, we thought drivers could stand to see just how brightly it shines. So let’s take a look at how it compares to the 2012 Nissan Quest.

Honda Offers Superior Engineering and Safety

Honda is an automaker that has become synonymous with safety in the modern auto market. It’s a reputation that they have earned year after year on many of the vehicles here in our Boulder showroom, and the Odyssey is no different, earning 5 stars in all crash ratings from the NHTSA. The Quest has not been safety-tested by the NHTSA.

The Odyssey also has a rear-parking aid to help keep your vehicle safe from unintended dings or scratches when trying to fit into that perfect parking spot. Drivers of the Nissan will be craning their necks backward to make sure they’re not about to bump into the vehicle behind them, as rear-parking assistance is not available on their model.

Your passengers won’t be fighting over who has to sit in the back seats if you’re driving the 2012 Odyssey — when compared to the Quest, it’s got over 4 inches of extra legroom in second-row seating and over 2 inches of extra legroom in third-row seating. You’ll also get a maximum cargo storage of 148.5 cubic feet in the Odyssey, a full 40 cubic feet more than the Nissan.

Finally, you’ll be spending less at the pump with the Odyssey, thanks to its EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg on the highway (EX-L models and below)* compared to the Nissan Quest’s 24 highway mpg.
