The 2013 Honda Odyssey vs. the 2013 Nissan Quest

2013 Honda OdysseyMinivans are the most popular and valuable vehicle choice for families with children, and the reasons why options like the 2013 Honda Odyssey are popular among Orland Park and Frankfort drivers are obvious. Here at Community Honda, drivers tell us that they choose minivans for their versatility, space, comfort, and convenience, and the Odyssey offers all of that and more.

There are several quality minivan choices out there, though, and the 2013 Nissan Quest might sound appealing at first. If you want to see how it stacks up to the Odyssey, read on.


The Odyssey Comes Out Ahead in Several Categories

Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? Honda’s minivan is simply a better choice, and here’s why:

  • Residual Value – A vehicle’s residual value is the projected worth of the car after a few years of use. After 36 months, the Odyssey is projected to keep 56% of its original value, while the Quest only has a 53% residual value. After 60 months, the Odyssey keeps 38% of its value, and the Quest only keeps 35% of its value. Honda gives you a minivan that’s a better investment.
  • Highway Fuel Economy – The 2013 Odyssey LX with automatic transmission has a higher fuel economy on the highway, with an EPA-estimated 27 mpg.* The 2013 Nissan Quest only gets 25 mpg on the highway.
  • Comfort and Convenience Features – The 2013 Odyssey has several standard features that the Quest does not have. These include a rearview camera, floor mats, a power driver seat, an anti-theft system for the stereo, privacy glass, automatic headlights, foglights, and electronic parking assist. When you factor in Honda’s innovative i-MID system, it’s clear where the comfort lies.
  • Roominess – For all of that random stuff that families carry around, the Odyssey has more cargo space, with 93 cubic feet vs. the 63 cubic feet of the Quest. It also has much more legroom in the second and third rows.
