Nissan may be best known for their excellently designed but competitively priced family and off-road vehicles, so the Quest has a lot to live up to. The 2009 Nissan Quest is the manufacturer’s latest entry into the minivan market. Sporting power and comfort, it’s easy why the Quest is one of the nation’s most popular minivans.
A little known fact is that Nissan wanted to distinguish the Quest from the competition, they did this by making the van sexy, or at least as sexy as a minivan can be. When you set eyes on it, the differences in design are not immediately obvious but they build to create the impression of a far more streamlined and curvaceous vehicle than most minivan drivers are used to.
The Quest remains a family car, though, a fact which is demonstrated by Nissan with clever design rather than marketing. The basic Quest is equipped with a message center with outside temperature display, rear air conditioning, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an AM/FM stereo and CD player with 2nd-row audio controls with two headphone jacks for back seat head bangers.
The 2009 Nissan Quest sets out to do a few things differently. It’s clear that there have been a few compromises with space and configuration to accommodate the sexier look, but not so much that its value as a family car is seriously damaged. If you like the look, you’ll get what you want from the Quest
