2012 Nissan Quest
Quest flips and folds like no other minivan
Sometimes the simplest innovation is the most helpful. In Quest, both the 2nd row and 3rd rows fold flat, forward and out of the way. Customize the interior to seat up to seven adults comfortably, or fold everything flat for up to 119.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
Quest does cargo smarter
Unlike other minivans, instead of storing seats, the cargo well behind the 3rd row is a permanent place to put whatever you like, without ever emptying it out. The rear cargo area has two separate lids, allowing you to keep a flat cargo floor on one side and leave the other lid open to carry taller things.
Access at the touch of a button
Quest’s available one-touch power sliding doors make loading up easy, even with your hands full. Just tap the button on the handle, and the door unlocks and slides open without effort, and without skipping a beat.
The next best thing to your own personal doorman
When your hands are full, Quest’s available one-touch power liftgate is your ally with. With the tap of a finger, it opens wide – all the way up to the roofline, so you can stand under it – giving you unobstructed and fumble-free access to the cargo area.
The choice is up to you
Quest is all about versatility and choice, so the second-row center console gives you options. It offers cup holders and well-placed storage space for small items, or you can remove the console completely to create some walk-through space.
Embrace the chaos in unexpected luxury
Whether it’s your daily routine or a family road trip, enjoy it all in first-class accommodations. The interior is complemented by stylish chrome accents and an elegant standard wood ton trip, all bathed in natural light from the available dual opening glass moonroof. Adding function to the interior’s form, an oversized, removable console provides ample storage and extra cup holders.
Comfort that goes the distance
Engineered specifically to reduce fatigue over the long haul, the seats in Quest use an innovative combination of seat frame, structure and padding to provide support and comfort all the way through even your longest journeys.
Get cozy quicker
Chilly mornings and cold weather are no match for Quest’s available Quick Comfort heated front seats. They focus on key areas of the body, heating them in sequence to get you warmed up as soon as possible.
Clean the air
The available Advanced Climate Control System with Plasmacluster™ air purifier automatically keeps smells outside, while an air scrubber works on inside odors, and a special filter reduces allergens inside the cabin.
The sky truly is the limit
Quest’s available dual opening glass moonroof is about more than just visibility. Day or night, both panels can be opened to cool down the cabin. And of course, they let in light to create a feeling of openness and space for you and your passengers.
A nice breeze and a bit of shade - the back seat no longer takes the back seat
Provide shade, comfort and fresh air to the second- and third-row passengers. An available set of factory-installed sunshades easily pull up to provide discreet protection from sun’s glare, while standard power second-row windows offer instant backseat ventilation.
Travel in peace and quiet
In a vehicle equipped to transport large groups of small people, the last thing you want to deal with is the sound from outside. An interior engineered for smart acoustics, including optimized sound insulation and deep, plush carpeting helps keep road and traffic noise outside.
A home-away-from-home theater
Simulating the layout of theater seating, the heights of the 2nd and 3rd rows are staggered to optimize the view of the largest 16:9 viewing screen available in a minivan. A set of 13 strategically placed speakers complement an acoustically designed cabin, delivering theater quality sound to every passenger in the vehicle.
The “are we there yet?” eliminator
Whether it’s a long trip or just a day of errands, Quest’s available class-leading 11” 16:9 widescreen DVD monitor with gaming inputs will have them begging to come along wherever you go.
Go Bluetooth®. Go hands-free
Stay in touch on the move and stay safe. With the available Bluetooth® technology on hand, Quest will store your phone’s address book so you can use the voice-activation feature to make calls by name. Coupled with the available Nissan Navigation System, Bluetooth® also allows you to stream music wirelessly from your phone.
Move to your own beat
Quest features a USB input that is ideal for an iPod® or playing MP3s off a thumb drive. And in case you have any music you want to play from a different source, there’s a standard auxiliary audio input jack. Plus, the USB interface can be operated through the available steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
Stay charged up on the road
An available 120-volt AC power outlet in the center console works just like a power outlet in your home- use it to charge your phone, laptop or other small electronic devices.
Performance with people in mind. Up to 7 people, to be specific
Need to execute a lane change? Done. How about getting up to highway speed on the on-ramp? Piece of cake. Quest’s powerful V6 engine gives you the confidence and power to get around the way you need to. The Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission maintains engine rpm instead of shifting and ensures a seamless wave of acceleration.
Steering that adapts to the situation
So responsive, it gives you the assistance you need at different speeds. Steering is easier at low speeds for parking, and then firms up at higher cruising speeds.
Leave the keys in your pocket – you’ve got more important things to do
Need to open your Quest but your hands are full? Forget about digging out your keys. Quest’s standard Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition allows you to unlock your doors without dropping everything to work the lock. And once you’re inside, just push the ignition button to start the engine – no keys, no fuss.
Navigate like you are right at home
With the available hard drive-based Nissan Navigation System, you can get your bearings and prepare for what’s ahead. Avoid pesky traffic tie-ups and congestions with real-time updates and alternate routes from XM NavTraffic®. Know instantly about current weather and road conditions from XM NavWeather™. With built-in Zagat Survey® reviews, an expert restaurant suggestion is just a voice command away.
Say goodbye to your tire pressure gauge
Take away the guesswork when it comes to your tire pressure with Quest’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy Fill Tire Alert. Sensors monitor tire pressure and indicate, through an illuminated icon on the dash, when pressure is low. When you are filling your tires, Quest lets you know when the pressure is ideal with a friendly beep of the horn. No tire pressure gauge required.
A better way to back up
Make backing up or parallel parking that much more convenient. Shift Quest into Reverse and the available RearView Monitor displays what’s behind you on the dash-mounted interior monitor. Plus, the automatic reverse-tilt-down feature automatically angles your outside mirrors increasing your rear visibility.
Technology that transforms the way you drive
Located on the Quest’s extra-large outside mirrors, the available Blind Spot Warning System™ illuminates to let you know if there’s someone in your blind spot and sounds an audible alert when you engage your turn signal.
Stay connected with both hands on the wheel
Quest’s Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System lets you make and receive important calls using steering wheel-mounted controls and your speakers so you never need to let go of the wheel, or lose sight of the road.
It changes the way you see the road
A light sensor on the dashboard signals the High Intensity Discharge headlights to turn on when conditions require. The HID lights provide a brighter, more defined beam pattern than traditional headlights.
After Quest’s windshield wipers have cycled 2 times (up/down, up/down), the headlights will turn on automatically. When the windshield wipers are turned off, the lights turn off 3 seconds later.
A comprehensive commitment to safety
The Nissan Advanced Air Bag System incorporates seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor to inflate the dual-stage supplemental air bags built into each front seat so they move with you as you adjust your seat. And two roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for all of the outboard occupants.
Active Head Restraints
These help reduce the chance of whiplash injuries to you and your front passenger by moving up and forward during certain rear-end collisions.
Active safety systems
Stay on your steered path with the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system that senses understeer or oversteer and compensates accordingly. And maintain grip with the Traction Control System (TCS). It senses drive-wheel spin and reduces engine power or applies front brakes to help maintain traction.
The best accident is the one that never happens
In sudden-braking situations, the Anti-lock Braking System pumps the brakes quickly to help prevent wheel lockup. Electronic Brake force Distribution monitors weight distribution and adjusts rear brake force for balanced braking, and the Brake Assist feature boosts braking pressure in emergency situations.
Experience incomparably smooth automatic shifting with Nissan’s Continuously Variable Transmission.
Brake Override Technology
A vital component of the Nissan Safety Shield, Brake Override Technology has been standard on every Nissan vehicle since 2005.
