2015 Honda Odyssey

The 2015 Nissan Quest is a well built minivan that should provide your family with convenience and efficient transportation here in the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area. However, even good safety scores and EPA ratings and a long list of standard features can’t push the Quest to the forefront when you compare it to the 2015 Honda Odyssey. In that comparison, the Quest consistently comes up second best in just about every category, so if you’re considering a vehicle for your family, you should definitely think of the Odyssey before the Quest.

Performance and Efficiency

The 2015 Honda Odyssey simply offers more miles per gallon while also providing more power to get you onto the highway, even when you’re loaded with passengers and cargo. The Honda gets a 3.5L V6 engine that makes 248 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Nissan Quest gets a 3.5L V6 that makes 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. While the Quest makes more horsepower, the torque rating is really more important for moving a loaded van around town or onto the highway. Plus, the Odyssey receives a 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway* rating from the EPA while the Quest earns 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway.

Features and Options

If you’re cross shopping these vehicles, you’ll be surprised how much the 2015 Honda Odyssey offers that is simply missing on the 2015 Nissan Quest. The Honda Odyssey gives you standard features including:

  • A power driver seat
  • A rearview camera
  • A stereo antitheft system
  • Automatic headlights
  • Fog lights
  • A rear parking assist system
  • Floor mats

None of these features come standard on the Nissan Quest.

That’s why you should take note that the 2015 Nissan Quest received a Poor rating in the small front overlap test from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Quest also only received an Acceptable rating in the roof strength test. The 2015 Honda Odyssey not only received a Good rating in all IIHS tests, but it’s also available with a forward collision warning feature.
