West Michigan drivers looking for a new family vehicle like the 2015 Nissan Quest should have cargo space as a high priority. After all, the demands of a family vehicle are diverse, and you can never know when you’ll need to switch from hauling the kids around to helping a friend move (or moving those kids off to college a few years down the road).

While the Quest certainly gives you more space than a family sedan would, we think you should look to the 2015 Honda Odyssey for your next minivan for its cargo space and standard features.

Honda Gives You More Room

While both minivans start off with seating for seven passengers, the Odyssey is available with eight-person seating and more than enough room for everyone to feel comfortable. And unlike the Quest, second- and third-row legroom leaves plenty of space for full-sized adults in the Odyssey.

When you don’t need all of that passenger space, you can just fold down some or all of the rear seating and expand the cargo area:

  • The 2015 Nissan Quest cargo space starts at 25.7 cubic feet and expands to as much as 108.4 cubic feet.
  • The 2015 Odyssey LX, on the other hand, features 38.4 cubic feet of cargo room to start with and a maximum of 148.5 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded down.

If you know you’re going to need plenty of cargo room or simply want to be prepared for whatever life throws at you, the Odyssey looks far more capable of getting the job done than the Quest.
