"For many people, the stigma of owning a minivan is too much to bear. Instead, they turn their focus to the latest crossover SUV. Shame really, since the minivan remains one of the most sensible ways to move your family around."
The 2018 Toyota Sienna eclipses the Quest in nearly every category there is to compete, but New York residents prefer a more detailed explanation of why, so we're here to provide that for Valley Stream, Long Island, Bayside, Westbury, and Greenvale citizens. The uncertain future of the Quest alone should hint that the Sienna is the king in nearly every automotive category. And while the Quest had a decent run and provided many people with a reliable vehicle, it just didn't have the personality and style of the Sienna. Here's why.
First things first: The Sienna is well-known as a stylish and sleek mini-van. It's definitely not dull or to be outdone by today's SUVs. Instead, this one is going to turn head for its stylish choice of colors. Select from Silver Sky Metallic, Salsa Red Pearl, and Midnight Black Metallic, to name just a few exterior color choices. And the more sculpted, sleek exterior makes for a startling and pleasing appearance. The Quest? Not so much on the looks. What they went for was efficiency and sufficiency. Nissan didn't quite hit the mark. With a starting price of just over $30,000, the Sienna promises to be one of the most exciting mini-van releases of the year and certainly a milestone for Toyota. New York drivers have a treat in store.
The Sienna annihilates the Quest in performance. Toyota presents a mini-van that can go from 0-60 in 6.9 seconds, compared to the 7.9 seconds it takes the Quest to reach the same speed. That's largely due to the difference in horsepower. The Sienna has 296 horsepower compared to the 260 horsepower of the Quest. Both are darn impressive in any universe, but the Sienna just gets it done faster and with more power. If you're in NY and want a high performance mini-van, you can't do better than the Sienna.
Greenvale NY customers can be a bit picky about their interiors, and this is never more important than in a family mini-van. You need ample comfort, convenience, and entertainment for passengers of all sizes and ages. Cargo space is also very important. The Quest can only carry 7 passengers compared to the 8 passengers that can comfortably ride in the Toyota model. Nissan loses out there again. And Greenvale residents are typically searching for a mini-van when they need ample space for passengers AND cargo, so it's vital that the mini-van they purchase has enough space. You can count on Toyota to provide that.
Toyota Safety Sense is a premier suite of safety features that are featured on this model as well. You won't find that on the Nissan model. With Safety Sense, you get Lane Departure, Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Traction Control, and oh so much more. It's the suite of tools that every New Yorker needs to get safely to every destination. For its own part, Nissan did their best to keep up.
Toyota gives you the terrific Entune App to take care of all your entertainment needs. And that's important, especially if you have children as passengers. Explore Yelp, Pandora, and a whole league of other apps that will make your days on the road easier. Easy Speak allows you to control everything effortlessly through voice commands, increasing your safety even further. The Nissan just doesn't live up these expectations but they do have some nice features, such as a touchscreen HD display for navigation and entertainment needs. All in all, Toyota wins out big in this race.
The Toyota difference.
