The Quest has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Acadia doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The Quest LE has a standard Around View ® Monitor to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Acadia only offers a rear monitor and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the front or sides.

Both the Quest and the Acadia have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

The Quest’s standard driver’s power window opens or closes with one touch of the window control, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths. The Acadia’s standard driver’s power window switch has to be held the entire time to close it fully. The Quest SV/SL/LE’s front power windows both open or close with one touch of the switches. The Acadia’s optional front passenger window doesn’t close automatically.

If the front windows are left down on the Quest SV/SL/LE the driver can raise them using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Acadia can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Intelligent Key standard on the Quest allows you to unlock the driver’s door, cargo door and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading groceries, getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The GMC Acadia doesn’t offer an advanced key system.

The Quest has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The Acadia doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

The Quest’s speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Acadia’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Quest has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Acadia only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

When the Quest LE is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Acadia’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

A built-in pollen filter removes pollen, exhaust fumes and other pollutants from the Quest’s passenger compartment. This helps prevent lung and/or sinus irritation, which can trigger allergies or asthma. The Acadia doesn’t offer a filtration system.

Insurance will cost less for the Quest owner. The Car Book by Jack Gillis rates the Quest with a number “5” insurance rate while the Acadia is rated higher at a number “10” rate.

According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the Quest is less expensive to operate than the Acadia because it costs $392 less to do the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance for 50,000 miles. Typical repairs cost much less on the Quest than the Acadia, including $386 less for an alternator, $107 less for front brake pads, $2 less for fuel injection, $89 less for a fuel pump and $35 less for a power steering pump.

Intellichoice estimates that five-year ownership costs (depreciation, financing, insurance, fuel, fees, repairs and maintenance) for the Nissan Quest will be $1838 to $5870 less than for the GMC Acadia.
