 2012 Nissan Quest: Showing Off At Preschool

A fellow dad at my daughter's preschool was checking out our long-term Quest yesterday. He frequently drives his daughter to school in the pictured red Sienna. Twenty years ago we would have been comparing muscle cars or sport compacts. Now ... minivans.

I asked him what he thought of the Quest. "Well, it's ugly," he said. But I did show him the Quest's upscale interior and told him about it's impressive V6/CVT combo and nice ride. He seemed reasonably impressed.

Then he said, half jokingly: "So, want to race?" Ha! I had to politely decline, but remember you can see the Quest compared to the latest Sienna and Odyssey in our most recent Minivan Comparison Test.
