2016 Nissan Quest Buyer's Guide

The People-Mover for Nonconformists

The most distinctly styled entry in the segment, Nissan's minivan backs up its bold look with an interior fit for a luxury SUV. Combined with buttery driving dynamics thanks to a segment-exclusive "gearless" automatic transmission, the Nissan Quest is worth more than just a double-take.

Driving It

From our 2016 Nissan Quest full review: "The Quest's is near the top of the class with up to 27 mpg, falling just under the Honda Odyssey's highway rating but topping the Honda in city and combined driving. The Quest's 260-horsepower V6 engine enables no-fuss acceleration, and the transmission's revised programming that came last year makes this family van more responsive when you put your foot down."

Cool Features

The Quest is available with the company's impressive Around View Monitor, which makes it easier to navigate parking lots and is especially handy in a minivan. The Advance Climate Control System works in three ways to keep cabin air fresh: it automatically switches to recirculated air when it senses exhaust odors from other vehicles, it has an air filter specifically designed to reduce allergens and it has an air purifier to get rid of any odors in the minivan.

Consumer Feedback

KBB.com visitor and Nissan Quest owner D. had this to say about Nissan's minivan: "It's not bad gas mileage or space for cost- plenty of easily accessible room- lots of conveniences inside- bluetooth, steering wheel controls for stereo and bluetooth, lots of airbags for safety- all and all not too shabby. However, the road noise in this van is pretty bad- and if you sit in the back seat during travel you can't hear conversation or the radio unless it's exceptionally loud."
