2012 Nissan Quest
2012 Nissan Quest
The Quest was redesigned for the 2011 model year and thus enters 2012 mostly unchanged. Last year's redesign brought with it a completely new look, but the real story with any minivan is what's inside. The good news for the Quest is that its innovative interior makes it one of the most versatile and usable minivans on the market. A unique design for the sliding doors means that the step-in height is lower than on other minivans. The second- and third-row seats fold easily, but the second-row seats can't be removed and the third row doesn't tumble into the floor. More useful for most families, however, is the deep, 11.4-cubic-foot cargo well behind the third row that can be enclosed with a 60/40-split cover that can support up to 200 pounds. Keyless entry and push-button start are standard on every Quest; a backup camera and power sliding doors are standard on all but the base Quest S. Other options include a huge, eleven-inch rear DVD video screen, Bose audio, touch-screen navigation, and dual moonroofs that slide open. Under the hood, Nissan's ubiquitous 3.5-liter V-6 engine offers 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque and operates more quietly in the Quest than in other Nissan vehicles. A continuously variable transmission provides silky-smooth acceleration and helps keep fuel economy figures competitive. The Nissan Quest has long lagged behind other minivans, but the new model is more competitive than ever and merits a test-drive by anyone shopping for a versatile family hauler.
2012 Nissan Quest 3 5 LE Front Left Side View
Although the slab-sided styling isn't very appealing to me, I generally was impressed with the Nissan Quest. I get the impression the entire vehicle has been carefully designed to make it as practical and as sensible as possible. The extremely low step-in height and quick power sliding doors are very convenient. All the switches and instruments are incredibly easy to use. The third row of seats offers enough space for me to sit there comfortably, and it can effortlessly be folded flat.
