ASG Awards Nissan Quest with Best Overall Performance
Nissan was a big hit with Automotive Science Group this year with three vehicles winning “Best Overall Performance” in their class. The Nissan Quest took the title for the Minivan class and was also recognized as having the Best Environmental Performance.
The group uses a complicated formula that considers many factors such as sustainable manufacturing, cost of ownership, and environmental impact to come up with its Automotive Performance Index for each vehicle. The vehicle that performs best in these three areas earns the title of Best Overall Performance.
The 2015 Nissan Quest rocks a pretty decent 27 highway miles per gallon and offers 260 horsepower with space for seven people.
When you’re carrying that many people, safety is a top priority, so the 2015 Quest offers the latest driver assistance tech from Nissan, including the available Blind Spot Warning and Around View Monitor that help the driver keep an extra set of electronic eyes on the world around them.
Kelley Blue Book recently awarded the Quest as the Most Affordable 3-row vehicle and Kiplinger awarded it as the “Best Car of 2013” in the Most Fuel Efficient Vehicle category.
