Pros: Peppy acceleration; inviting and comfortable interior with top-notch assembly quality
Cons: Fuel economy; fewer comfort and convenience features and less passenger- and cargo versatility than most class competitors
CG Says: For 2015, the Nissan Quest gets a new model name (the previous LE grade is now called Platinum) and 5-inch audio display screen in place of the previous 4.3-inch unit. Also, the continuously variable transmission (CVT) gets a “D-Step Shift” programming update that mimics the shifting of a conventional automatic transmission. A strong engine, inviting interior, and easy controls are what make the 2015 Quest an appealing minivan. And even though no one drives a minivan for its style, the Quest nevertheless sports some interesting design touches inside and out that make it stand out from the pack. However, Nissan doesn’t offer a second-row bench seat like some competitors do, and most class rivals offer more comfort and convenience options as well. Quest’s positive traits make it worth a look for shoppers who appreciate its unique style, but we’d check out the Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, and Honda Odyssey as well.
