2015 Nissan Quest Overview
- Seats up to seven passengers
- Carryover model for 2015
- Comfortable seating with upscale materials
The seven-seat 2015 Nissan Quest is comfortable, stylish transport for families.
There are no substantive changes to the Quest for the new model year; in fact it appears much the same now as it did when the new design debuted all the way back in 2011. But the Quest’s progressive design still feels very much in tune with the times. The rear pillars are blacked out, which makes the roof appear to be floating over the rear part of the minivan (a look aped by the Murano SUV in its latest redesign). 16-inch steel wheels are standard, with larger 18-inch cogs optional. Also available are power sliding doors and a power liftgate for added convenience.
Under the hood, the Quest opts for Nissan’s tried and tested 260-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that comes mated to a CVT with updated tuning for the new model year that is designed to make it feel more like a conventional automatic. All Quest models are front-wheel drive. Fuel economy figures are estimated at 20/27 mpg city/highway, which beats last year’s model by a couple mpg.
Inside, the Quest seats seven passengers across three rows of seats. The second row is only offered as captain’s chairs, there is no available second row bench. The Quest has always impressed us with its cabin, offering high-quality materials and good roominess in a refined cabin that punches above its price point. Standard features include push button start, air conditioning, power windows/locks, and an auxiliary audio input jack. Moving up to the SV trim from the base trim nets Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a 120v power plug. Also available are navigation, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a Bose stereo, and a backseat entertainment system.
Standard safety features include six airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system. Blind sport warnings and a rearview camera are optional, as is Nissan’s Around View Monitor system, which uses cameras located around the Quest to display a top-down view of the minivan as you navigate through tight spaces.
