2013 Honda Odyssey vs. 2013 Nissan Quest
Minivans are still the go to style of vehicle when it comes to moving families around from work, to school, to soccer practice; and for good reason. Minivans are capable, safe and efficient. Not to mention flexible in helping with weekend home improvement products. Competition in the segment is very tight and two of the top competitors are the 2013 Honda Odyssey vs. the 2013 Nissan Quest. Both minivans have their strong suits, but the Honda Odyssey takes the lead with more flexibility and fuel-economy.
The Odyssey and the Quest are both powered by sufficiently strong V-6 engines. The Nissan minivan does offer more horsepower (260-hp to 248-hp), however the Honda Odyssey gets better fuel-economy and both are rated to tow the same amount when properly equipped. Comparing the 2013 Honda Odyssey vs. the 2013 Nissan Quest in terms of available torque, the Odyssey wins again with 250 foot-pounds to the Nissan Quest’s 240 ft.-lbs. This has implications when towing and when navigating less than ideal road conditions.
