The 2011 Nissan Quest SL minivan is offered in (3) different trim levels: base S, SV, SL and the top-level LE model.
The Quest offers the same amenities as most luxury vehicles with features such as Bluetooth connectivity, DVD player with a hard-drive, GPS Navigation, and the usual trinkets that we have become accustom to over the past years in automobile engineering.
There is never too much to get excited about when we are talking about the body styling of minivan, but Nissan Quest is one of the most futuristic looking carpool machines ever built. The design language was taken from the Nissan Forum concept, which recorded a 0.32 Cd in the wind tunnel. Pretty slick for such a big body!
The Quest comes stocked with a 3.5 liter V6 engine that puts out 253 horsepower. The Shifts are handled by Nissan’s Xtronic CVT gearbox.
The 2011 Quest achieves 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The sprint from 0-60 mph is not exact but is somewhere in the 8 second range…without the kids and the dog in the car.
Interior-wise, the Quest was designed to have a more “fluid sculpture” then other minivans in its class. It comes equipped with one-touch power sliding rear doors, 2nd row power windows, removable 2nd row console, dual moon-roofs, an advanced climate control system for the entire cabin, standard theater seating, and an available 11-inch color monitor to keep everyone nice and quiet in the back.
