2012 Nissan Quest LE Passenger Minivan

2012 Nissan Quest Review

(0 Stars)  Handsome and practical.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
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.
