Vehicle Overview

Redesigned for the 2011 model year, the Nissan Quest minivan can seat up to seven people in three rows. It competes with the Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. It comes in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and LE.

New for 2012
Satellite radio is now standard on SV and SL trims.

The Quest is distinguished by black pillars that combine with tinted rear and side windows to lend a floating-roof appearance. All trim levels have a prominent chrome grille strip, chrome door handles and a spoiler atop the squared-off rear end. Exterior features include:

  • 16-inch steel wheels are standard
  • 18-inch alloy rims are available
  • Available power-sliding side doors
  • Available moonroof
  • Available xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Available power liftgate

The Quest seats seven, with three seats in the third row and two captain's chairs forming the second row. The captain's chairs flank a removable center console. All five rear seats can be folded forward to form a flat cargo floor. Because the third row folds forward rather than back, there's a deep well behind it that remains usable even when the seats are flat. A rigid cover over the well keeps the load floor continuous when the seats are lowered. In the SL and LE, the two third-row segments are spring-loaded to fold flat at the pull of a lever. A power seatback return feature comes on the LE trim. Interior features include:

  • Standard cloth upholstery
  • Available leather with heated front seats
  • Available memory feature for driver's seat
  • Available backup camera
  • Available iPod hookup and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Available navigation system
  • Available Bose stereo
  • Available backseat entertainment system

Under the Hood
A 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 teams with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:

  • Front-wheel drive
  • Runs on regular gas

Nissan has enhanced the standard tire pressure monitoring system with Easy Fill Tire Alert, which flashes the hazard lamps to confirm when a tire is being filled with air and also chirps the horn once the specified pressure is reached so you know to remove the air hose. Safety features include:

  • Front seat-mounted side-impact airbags
  • Front-seat active head restraints
  • Side curtain airbags protect all three seat rows in the event of a side-impact collision or rollover
  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Blind spot warning system optional
