About the 2012 Nissan Quest
The 2012 Nissan Quest is more than just another standard minivan – it's a new take on innovation for the family. From its bold styling with full surround glass to its extensive list of family friendly innovations, Quest "gets" parenting better than any other minivan. Quest's sophisticated, modern exterior combines fluid sculptural elements with a dynamic mass and crafted details to provide a fresh take on minivan design – helping create a look as if Quest was carved from one solid piece of sculptor's stone. The 2012 Quest comes with standard Nissan Intelligent Key® and optional one-touch power sliding doors, which unlock and open the side door with the simple touch of a button. To assist entry further, the Quest's 2nd row features a standard walk-in device for easier access to the 3rd row. A one-touch unlock/open power rear liftgate is standard on Quest SL and LE models.
The easy-to-use convenience also carries over into the interior design with the fold-flat 2nd and 3rd row seats. The 3rd row folds forward - unlike any other minivan, there is no stowing required. The permanent rear storage well is always available, and a flat cargo floor is achieved without removing any seats. Third row power return seatbacks are also available on Quest LE.
One of the most innovative technologies is the Quest LE's standard Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) with Plasmacluster™ air purifier and Grape Polyphenol Filter. The system works three ways to help reduce allergens and unwanted odors within the Quest cabin. Quest's standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) includes a segment-first application of Nissan's Easy Fill Tire Alert.
All 2012 Quest models feature a standard VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V6 rated at 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, and an advanced Xtronic CVT™ transmission that provides a smooth driving experience. Fuel economy is estimated at 19 mpg City/24 mpg Highway. Quest also features 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes and vehicle-speed-sensitive power steering. As part of Nissan's "Safety Shield" concept, Quest is designed to incorporate a number of advanced safety systems, including the Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system, which is standard on Quest LE. BSW helps alert the driver by illuminating an indicator light in the outside mirror if another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area. If the driver then engages the turn signal, the indicator flashes and an audible alert sounds.
The 2012 Nissan Quest is offered in four well-equipped models: S, SV, SL and LE. Seven exterior colors are available, and there are two interior colors in a choice of cloth (S and SV) or leather-appointed (SL and LE) seating.
