Pros: Peppy acceleration; inviting and comfortable interior with top-notch assembly quality
Cons: Fuel economy; fewer comfort and convenience features and less passenger- and cargo versatility than most class competitors
CG Says: The Nissan Quest is unchanged for 2017. Quest is a front-wheel-drive minivan with seating for seven passengers. The sole powertrain is a 260-horsepower V6 engine paired with a CVT automatic transmission. Available features include dual sunroofs, power sunshades, blind-spot alert, and around-view camera. A strong engine, inviting interior, and easy controls are what make Quest an appealing minivan. And even though no one drives a minivan for its style, the Quest nevertheless sports some interesting design touches inside and out that make it stand out from the pack. However, Nissan doesn’t offer a second-row bench seat like some competitors do, and most class rivals offer more comfort and convenience options as well. Quest’s positive traits make it worth a look for shoppers who appreciate its unique style, but we’d check out the Chrysler Pacifica, Toyota Sienna, and Honda Odyssey as well.
Availability of Quest may be limited in 2017, as Nissan decides the fate of this slow-selling minivan.
