Drivers shopping for a new minivan are often looking for a vehicle with plenty of seating and space for extra belongings. Large families are perfect for minivans because they’re spacious and comfortable. Long road trips with children can be difficult, but if your vehicle is set with entertainment features and a lot of space, then the adventure will be a lot more bearable. Our team here at Cox Toyota is taking a closer look into the 2016 Toyota Sienna and the 2016 Nissan Quest to show drivers what each one has to offer.
It’s important to point out we’re going to compare the vehicles at their base models, so the 2016 Toyota Sienna L and the 2016 Nissan Quest S. Drivers will notice the 2016 Sienna does have a slightly higher starting price point, but for a good reason. Aside from the impressive amount of cargo space in the Sienna, it’s also packed with standard features that are not available on the 2016 Quest. Let’s take a closer look at these two minivans to see what each one brings to the table.
