2011 Nissan Quest Road Test and Review: Introduction
Just 30 years ago, if a family of more than six wanted to go on a road trip, the only cars available were station wagons. Nowadays, new-car buyers have plenty of family-friendly vehicles from which to choose including crossovers, station wagons, SUVs and, of course, minivans. After booming in the early to mid 1990s, the minivan is the car that everyone loves to hate, but it is hard come up with a vehicle design that delivers better space, fuel economy and versatility all in one package. Following a brief respite, the Nissan Quest is back for 2011 with a new look to go with the same generous size that was a staple of the previous model. The 2011 Nissan Quest kicks off the fourth generation of Nissan’s minivan, and after spending a week in the Quest for this road test and review, it’s clear that Nissan has made improvements in everything from luxury and styling to ride quality and passenger comfort.
