What's New for 2012:
- Satellite radio is standard on two medium-level trims

Exterior Features
The 2012 Nissan Quest seats 7 passengers and features a much boxier and utilitarian design than the previous model. The Quest is offered in four trim levels. Power sliding doors unlock and open with a single touch, and two moonroofs open overhead.

Interior Features
Standard amenities on the Nissan Quest include cruise control, trip computer, ambient interior lighting, and a 4-speaker sound system. The second- and third-row seats are raised above the front-row floor level for better outward visibility. The Quest also offers two captain's chairs in the middle row rather than a bench seat.

Optional Features
Trim packages for the 2012 Nissan Quest begin with the SV, which includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 3-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth connectivity, 6-speaker sound system, and full audio-electronics interfaces. The SL package adds such amenities as heated front seats and an 8-way power driver seat, as well as one-touch, fold-flat third-row seats. The top-of-the-line LE trim adds a blind-spot warning system, power passenger seats, power-return third-row seats, sunshades, advanced air filtration, 13-speaker Bose sound system, 8-inch display, and satellite radio.

Under the Hood
The 2012 Nissan Quest is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine rated at 260 horsepower and mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy figures for the 2012 Nissan Quest are 19/24/21 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Safety
Standard safety equipment on the Nissan Quest includes anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, several air bags, tire-pressure monitoring system that audibly lets the driver know when the tires are full, and a rearview camera on the three highest trim levels. The top trim level includes a blind-spot warning system.

To date, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not tested the 2012 Nissan Quest. In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Quest received \"Good\" ratings--the Institute's highest--for frontal-offset, side-impact, and rear-seat crash protection, and an \"Acceptable\" rating for roof strength.
