Vehicle Overview

Nissan's 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 2013
A backseat DVD entertainment system is now available on SV models, and a surround-view camera system now comes on the LE trim.
Exterior
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

Interior
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 and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Available navigation system
  • Available Bose stereo
  • Available backseat entertainment system

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

  • Front-wheel drive
  • Runs on regular gas

Safety
The standard tire pressure monitoring system includes Nissan's Easy Fill Tire Alert, which flashes the hazard lamps to confirm when a tire is being filled with air and also chirps the horn when 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
  • Available blind spot warning system
  • Available surround-view camera system
