If you’re a parent and an innovation buff as well, you’re probably going to like the 2012 Nissan Quest minivan. It comes with bold styling and boasts of full surround glass on top of its many family friendly innovations. The 2012 Quest appears like it was carved from one solid piece of sculptor’s stone.
It has a sophisticated and modern look, merged with fluid sculptural elements with a dynamic mass and crafted details to have a fresh minivan design. The 2012 Quest is equipped with standard Nissan Intelligent Key and optional one-touch power sliding doors. This means that at just a touch of a button, the side door can be unlocked and opened.
Entry to the third row is easier since a standard walk-in device was placed on the second row. Quest SL and LE models offer this one-touch unlock/open power rear liftgate as standard. The 2012 Nissan Quest is mostly a carryover model and it shows in the price.
The base Quest 3.5 S has a price tag of $28,560, similar to the 2011 model. The price goes up to $42,160 for the range-topping Quest 3.5 LE, which has the following features as standard: HID headlights, DVD entertainment system, 8-inch color display, and blind spot warning system.
The Quest 3.5 SV has a starting price of $31,860, and the Quest 3.5 SL has a price tag of $35,310. The Quest SL is slotted under the LE model, and is equipped with these standard features: leather seats, 18-inch wheels, and a power liftgate.
Additional revisions to the 2012 Quest include Nissan’s Intelligent Key as standard on all models, and standard XM satellite radio on SV and SL models. A 3.5-liter V-6 engine powers the Quest. It produces 260 hp and 240 lb-ft., and is coupled to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
