2012 Nissan Quest: Why Minivans are Better Than SUVs

Short of their ability to tackle rough terrain or tow anything sizable, minivans are almost always a better alternative to SUVs. Case in point -- room behind the third row seats.

As you can see, our Quest had plenty of space for cargo even when the third row seats are in place. To get that kind of space in an SUV you need to go big, really big, like Suburban big.

Would I rather drive a Suburban? Of course I would, but that's just not practical for most people. Plus the Quest has cool powered seat that raise and lower at the push of a button. Nice.
