Honda manages to make the 2015 Odyssey minivan into more than just a big box for hauling kids around. It’s an attractive and enjoyable vehicle to drive. If you need room for your whole family, or just like ease of entry and an upright driving position, check out the vans and crossovers at Honda of Superstition Springs in Mesa, AZ, serving the entire Phoenix area.
Nissan tried hard with the latest design of the 2015 Quest minivan to make it fun, and attractive, but somehow ended up with an even boxier design.
Odyssey vs. Quest Space
These 2 vans are very similar in size, externally, with the Honda being just 2 inches longer and about 1.5 inch wider overall, but 3 inches lower. Somehow, through brilliant packaging no doubt, Honda manages to translate this into nearly 13 cubic feet of extra cargo room in back, when compared to the Quest. Honda offers you optional seating for 8 as well, not just 7 like the Quest. The Odyssey does this while also giving rear seat passengers 4 more inches of leg room, and 3rd row passengers 2 extra inches. So if you want to put adults or teenagers in the back, the Honda is the way to go.
Odyssey vs. Quest Crash Tests
The Honda Odyssey manages to score 5 stars across the board in every NHTSA crash test and has been named as a 2015 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. The 2015 NIssan Quest has not yet been tested and rated by NHTSA, but it’s going to be hard to beat the Odyssey’s perfect score. Honda only gets 4 stars out of 5 in the rollover rating, but that is typical of tall vehicles like minivans, and the Quest is taller than the Odyssey.
Odyssey vs. Quest Features
Nissan has a habit of leaving out in-demand features, as a way to lower the base sticker price and attract more shoppers. Honda doesn’t play that game, which is why its base price is a little higher, but here are some of the extra features you get in the Odyssey:
- Rearview camera
- Power adjustable driver and passenger seat
- 7 speaker stereo
- Automatic on and off headlights
So if you want a minivan that not only does the job, but is entertaining for the driver as well take a test drive in the 2015 Honda Odyssey. Honda of Superstition Springs has them in stock in Mesa, AZ, and we’re easy to get to from Phoenix or anywhere in the area.
