The minivan market has fallen on hard times. A category that once garnered more than a million sales annually has fallen to less than half of that. The Nissan Quest has followed the trend downward. The last generation model was introduced for 2004, and it sold some 46,000 vehicles that year. Odd styling inside and out somewhat undeservedly ate into sales, which fell to 8400 in 2009, prompting Nissan to cancel the 2010 model. But Nissan feels the minivan market is going to rebound to at least 500,000 sales and figures there is room for a new Quest. Enter the 2011 Quest, a completely redesigned minivan looking to get a foothold among some tough Honda, Toyota and Chrysler Group rivals. Let’s see how it stacks up.
