Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Compared to most minivans, the Quest is fun to drive, providing the best acceleration and steering feel in that vehicle class. Steering beats all competitors, and performance excels, though some may not appreciate the relatively sluggish CVT.

With a smaller footprint than rival minivans, Quest doesn’t feel as big as it looks. Due largely to electro-hydraulic steering, it’s the most nimble of the group, delivering the most natural steering feel. Ride comfort is helped by an effectively-damped, fully independent suspension. It doesn’t bound over long bumps like Chrysler minivans. Despite such impressive handling talents, a Quest seems to corner and accelerate with safety uppermost.

Smoother and quieter than most Nissans that use the same V6, the Quest almost never feels strained or lacking sufficient power. Even the CVT behaves well, thanks in part to Nissan’s D-Step shift logic. Those virtual gears help keep the CVT fairly responsive. While CVTs often feel sluggish to respond and amplify noise and vibration, stepped “gears” help it feel fairly responsive, and few will be bothered by occasionally slow reactions to throttle inputs.

The CVT helps make Quest one of the most fuel-efficient minivans, EPA-rated at 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

More upright and boxy-profiled than in the past, with a straight-edged passenger compartment, the Quest comes across as more trendy than most minivans. Quest’s roots stem from Japanese-market models, while other minivans are typically more curvaceous.

Thanks to large air intakes, the front end looks lower and smaller, whereas the tail ends rather abruptly, or even harshly. Large taillights make it easier to find the Quest in a parking lot, or in the dark.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

On the inside, Quest appears more typical of minivans: passenger-friendly and pragmatic. Yet even here, it feels somewhat formal, with a dashboard of plain-looking LCD displays and stacked rectangles. Atop the controls is an LCD screen: five-inch on midrange models, or eight inches on upper versions. Piano-key type buttons sit below the screen.

Audio controls can be confusing, and some controls are in non-intuitive places. The transmission lever may block the view of certain knobs and buttons.

Though purposeful, Quest fails to offer the cargo and seating benefits of the best minivans, lacking some of the practicality expected in a family vehicle. Front riders get ample leg and head space, and the plushy-upholstered bucket seats allows for large adults to fit comfortably.

Second- and third-row seats are supportive and neatly angled, but they don’t move; seatbacks merely fold over. Seats do fold easily enough, using levers and pull straps. The third-row seat is tight and cramped for adults, but acceptable for youngsters. Squeezing a car seat through the narrow sliding-door opening can be tough.

In addition to having a relatively high load floor, the Quest feels small inside. There’s no telescoping steering wheel, though a high seating position helps.


New Car Test Drive

Taking its pluses and minuses into account, the Quest isn’t an easy vehicle to recommend in the minivan segment. In safety, space, and features, the Quest doesn’t quite compete. To get Bluetooth capability and a rearview camera, you have to step up to a Quest SV, which is the version we recommend. With a full load of amenities, you could spend more than $44,000.
