Babble Best Picks:
2011 Minivans for the Family
Want to know the difference between all the minivans on the market? Babble asked me take each of them out for a spin to figure out which were best for which families. Most minivans got a thorough refresh this year, and many received better interior materials, more power, and higher fuel economy. After cargo capacity, safety is typically a minivan shopper's main concern. These large family haulers tend to do well on crash safety tests, and we included the results from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety's independent crash test results. To find out what others thought, we added the Consumer Reports score and their Customer Satisfaction rating when available as well.
We hope you find this information helpful in your search for a family crossover. Don't see your favorite vehicle on the list? Nominate it here! - Liane Yvkoff
2012 Updates | 2012 Nissan Quest
FUEL ECONOMY: 19/24
Who says change is good? The 7-seater 2012 Nissan Quest remains the same as last year’s model, but with no shortage of great tech features such as keyless entry and push-button ignition. For long car rides, the Quest also features one of the biggest navigation screens at eight inches with one of the more comprehensive business and points-of-interest databases we’ve seen. In the backseat, an 11-inch video screen and two included wireless headphones will keep kids entertained – as long as you don’t have three or more passengers fighting over the remote.
