Model Highlights

The Quest has rather unconventional styling for a minivan, but its powertrain fits right in with the pack. All Quest models get a smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine and front-wheel drive. The engine makes 253 horsepower, thanks to variable valve timing, as mated to a continuously variable transmission.

As is expected in a minivan, the Quest handles like a car, albeit a tall and heavy one. The 4-wheel independent suspension includes front and rear stabilizer bars to help composure in tight corners, and 4-wheel vented anti-lock disc brakes bring secure stops with a full load and included Brake Assist to help in panic stops.

Safety-wise, the Quest includes dual front and side-impact airbags and curtains for the rear occupants. There are anti-lock brakes of course and traction and stability control systems as well. Tire pressure monitoring comes standard.

While the 2011 Quest isn't quite as quirky as its ancestor, it sacrifices none of it style. The inside is roomy and comfortable. The seats are stylish for a vehicle designed to carry up to 7. Seats, that can fold-flat and a center console that can be removed completely. Seats are cloth on the S and SV trims, but leather on the SL and LE. The second-row features dual captain's chairs, and they fold-forward to allow three third-row passengers to squeeze their way back.

All that stylishness doesn't detract from function. The Quest comes with everything expected of a minivan in 2011, including variable wipers, a 6-CD changer audio system with an auxiliary audio input, a trip computer, power doors and locks, an auto cinching rear liftgate, keyless entry and front and rear air conditioning.

On the base S trim, those wheels become alloy, fog lamps get added as does Bluetooth and an upgraded audio system that integrates a 4.3-inch display and iPod integration. The driver seat is power adjustable, the steering wheel has integrated audio controls and is leather-wrapped. The doors slide on their own power by the push of a button. The climate control can vary temperatures for three distinct zones. There's a rearview monitor as well.

On the SL, the wheels are of the 18-inch alloy variety, a roof rack gets added on top, the upgraded mirrors include integrated turn signals, the seat trim is leather and heated in front and the third-row is so-called "quick release" for easy stowage.

On the top-of-the-line LE, the headlamps are xenon HID, the audio system is powered by Bose and features 12 speakers, a subwoofer and satellite radio. There is a rear entertainment system that can play DVDs and includes a 9.3 GB storage drive for digital music. On the LE, the liftgate can be opened with one touch and it's powered as well.

One especially noteworthy feature optional on the Quest remains the dual-panel moonroof, which is a step ahead of conventional sunroof designs and allows direct light into the second and third rows.


Model News

The Quest disappeared last year and now comes back completely redesigned for 2011. It comes back with all-new sheetmetal, a 3.5L V6 and continuously variable transmission, as well as all the typical minivan accoutrements.


Value Writeup

The Quest has always distinguished itself in the bland minivan market by offering distinctive styling and unusual ergonomics. The newest Quest is no different. With a boxy rear end and a smirking grille, as well as Nissan's typical reliability and fun-to-drive attitude, on top of a base price under $28,000, it's a package that's tough to beat.
