Minivans aren't generally praised for their forward-looking design qualities. Nissan’s Quest is an exception, striving to make a contemporary styling statement with its pillarless greenhouse and nose-toward-the-ground profile. Underneath that rather distinctive exterior, the Quest is quite a capable family hauler with a relaxing interior. Even more surprising, you get uncommonly good handling for the minivan class.

Bodywork is just the beginning. The Quest's unique design carries over to its interior, which features standard second-row captain's chairs and a removable console between the two.

Fuel economy is estimated at 20 mpg in city driving and 27 mpg on the highway (23 mpg combined).
With its four trim levels, the Quest covers a broad span of market territory:
Although the Quest S is attractively priced at $27,430 (including destination charge), it isn't eligible for any options. The midlevel SV and SL offer everything most families need in a minivan.
