2014 Nissan Quest Manchester, NH
The 2014 Nissan Quest is a great choice for a minivan given its smartly designed interior and easy driving demeanor. For 2014, the Nissan Quest gains some new color choices but otherwise carries over unchanged.

2014 Nissan Quest Design
With an upright stance and lots of flared lines in front, the 2014 Nissan Quest's straight-edged passenger box bears more than a passing resemblance to the Ford Flex, mostly at its pillarless greenhouse and its almost vertical tail. Although not as long or wide as the segment leaders, the Quest is taller than most of its rivals, by as much as three inches, which helps create a more open and roomy cabin. The 7-passenger Quest's great interior volume and handsomely appointed interior set the class standard. Everything you touch has a premium feel worthy of an upscale Infiniti vehicle. The second-row seats fold forward, but don't disappear into the floor, and they can't be removed. The third-row seat folds flat, too, but stays in place. Its taller floor limits cargo space to 108 cubic feet of total cargo capacity, which is about 40 cubes shy of its rivals. The Quest's deep storage bin behind the third row also isn't as roomy, though its design still allows items to be stored there when that third row is folded down.
Power & Handling of the '14 Quest
The 2014 Nissan Quest is a seven-passenger minivan offered in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and LE. A 3.5-liter V6 engine making 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque powers the Nissan Quest. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) takes the place of a conventional automatic transmission on the Quest and sends power to the front wheels. Nissan's 2014 Quest achieves its superior fuel economy thanks to its gearless CVT. The Quest moves smoothly and quickly from a dead stop. The softer suspension results in the Quest's ultra-smooth ride, a tradeoff we think most minivan users will appreciate.
If your growing brood mandates a minivan in your driveway, we can't think of a more uniquely styled one than the Nissan Quest. When loaded, the Quest feels more like a luxury SUV than a rug-rat ride, and its 19-mpg city rating should go a long way to easing frequent trips to the pump.
