Even with the current popularity of crossover vehicles, the minivan is still one of the most versatile and smooth-riding family haulers available. After all, there's nothing quite as convenient as the dual sliding doors that you'll find on the side of any new minivan. When you're searching for a spacious yet fuel-efficient new minivan at a reasonable price, do yourself a favor and check out the 2016 Nissan Quest. The 2016 Quest offers a superb list of standard features and a wide range of options to fit the lifestyle of just about any family. Santa Barbara Nissan, serving Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Monte Cito, Lompoc, and Goleta, has a nice selection of Quest models in stock. If you're in the area, bring your whole family down to our Santa Barbara, CA showroom and test drive a 2016 Nissan Quest!
Let's see how the 2016 Nissan Quest minivan compares to Toyota's Sienna.
If your family is like most, every dollar counts, and paying thousands more for a similarly-equipped minivan just doesn't make financial sense. If you want the reliability of a brand new, well-equipped minivan but at an affordable price, Nissan can provide you with real savings compared to the competition. The 2016 Nissan Quest minivan starts at an affordable $26,530 MSRP. Isn't it great that you can drive a versatile new minivan without breaking the bank? A similarly equipped base 2016 Sienna, though, starts at $28,700 MSRP -- or over two thousand dollars more than the Quest! If getting into a brand new minivan at a low price is important to you and your family, you have got to take a closer look at the 2016 Nissan Quest minivan.
The number one reason that many families purchase a minivan is for the ability to transport seven or more passengers in comfort and safety, with the added convenience of wide, sliding doors. If you care about the comfort of your precious cargo, you've got to test drive the 2016 Nissan Quest minivan. The 2016 Quest provides 177.8 cubic feet of passenger volume, while Toyota's 2016 Sienna offers just 164.4 cubic feet. Just imagine how peaceful a ride in your minivan can be if your children have more personal space. The additional space that you'll find in the Nissan Quest is certainly a major plus for road trips or weekend adventures, as it allows every passenger to stretch out a bit more than if they were riding in Toyota's Sienna.
Both the 2016 Quest and the 2016 Sienna minivans are powered by 3.5-liter V6 engines. While the 2016 Quest features a modern and advanced continuously variable transmission (CVT) for improved fuel efficiency and smoother acceleration, Toyota's Sienna relies on a traditional six-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately for Sienna drivers, Toyota's minivan just can't match the fuel economy of the 2016 Nissan Quest. The 2016 Quest minivan achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway and 20 mpg city, while the Sienna falls a bit short with an estimated 25 mpg highway and 18 mpg city rating. As its common for minivan drivers to regularly use their vehicles for weekend family adventures and road trips, having that two miles-per-gallon better fuel efficiency can really add up to some serious savings at the pump!
Both of these minivans offer a number of desirable options and packages, but when it comes to standard features, the 2016 Nissan Quest once again tops the 2016 Toyota Sienna. On every 2016 Quest minivan you'll find convenience features like intelligent key doors and push-button start, dedicated keyfob button for unlocking the cargo area trunk/hatch/door, driver seat height adjustment, an illuminated glove box, and exterior temperature display. It may be hard to believe that none of these features come standard on the 2016 Toyota Sienna minivan, but nonetheless, Nissan's versatile and well-rounded minivan takes yet another win over the Sienna.
