We have to imagine that Albany drivers looking at the 2016 Nissan Quest have mpg ratings and fuel economy estimates on their minds—after all, a family vehicle like a minivan has to fit into the family budget—but is the Quest efficient enough to compete in the modern minivan world? We compared the latest Quest to the 2016 Honda Odyssey to give you an idea of what an efficient and capable minivan looks like.
More than just fuel-efficient, the Odyssey comes in six different trim levels, ensuring there’s something for nearly every driver when they visit a Capital Region Honda Dealer for a test drive.
Compare to the 2016 Honda Odyssey Fuel Economy
The 2016 Nissan Quest mpg ratings are comparable to the Odyssey, but they still fall short:
- 2016 Quest models earn up to 27 highway mpg thanks to their V6 engine.
- The 2016 Odyssey also sports a V6 engine, yet is rated at an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg.*
It’s a small difference, but it’s the first in a long line of many advantages that mark the Odyssey as a much more competitive vehicle than the Quest.
Honda’s Other Advantages
Perhaps the greatest advantage of the 2016 Honda Odyssey over the 2016 Nissan Quest can be seen in the trim levels. The Quest’s basic S trim is about as simple as a modern minivan can get without seeming outdated; it requires an upgrade for expected features like Bluetooth and a rearview camera (both of which are standard on the Odyssey).
Honda also gives drivers more options. With six trim levels on the Odyssey, it’s much easier for you to find one that has the features you want at the price you can afford. The Quest’s four trim levels can be quite limiting (especially when the features of the basic Quest S fall so far below the entry-level Odyssey LX).

The edge in fuel economy is a small one, but when you factor in all of the other advantages, the Odyssey comes out ahead by a wide margin. Let us show you what Honda’s minivan is capable of; visit a Capital Region Honda Dealer near you for a test drive today.
