Nissan Motors released a single, closely cropped image of its redesigned versoin 2011 Quest minivan. This version has a broad grille and skinny headlights give it a sharper front-end appearance than the outgoing van. It is also has a new rear end design with newly styles rear light cluster and bumper. The interior shows various new styling elements.


New Quest will feature a 3.5-litre DOCH V6 engine under its skin, which is rated at 253 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque. It uses a4-wheel independent suspension, brakes through 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake force Distribution and Brake Assist while steering is done through a vehicle-speed-sensitive power-assisted rack-and-pinion design.

The Nissan Quest exterior styling combines fluid sculptural elements with crafted details to provide a fresh approach to minivan design. In front, the bold bumper and horizontal grille and headlights blend into the dramatic side character line and distinctive wheel forms filled with standard 16-inch or 18-inch wheels. The bold door sections and surfaces flow seamlessly into the rear “boomerang” taillights and tailgate finisher, helping create a look as if Nissan Quest was carved from one solid piece of sculptor’s stone.

The most striking aspect of the new Quest design, however, is the full surround privacy glass, black sash molding and chrome trim accents, which combine with the wide, low stance and muscular front end to give Nissan Quest the most dynamic and distinctive appearance in class. The styling of car should at least generate second glances from minivan consumers, with blacked-out D-pillars that recall the Ford Flex, this segment’s unofficial competitor. The front view is all Nissan, with angular headlights joined by a thick bar of chrome, connected to a distinctive six-sided grille.

The previous model Nissan Quest was objectively a pretty good van, but it was marred by some questionable styling decisions. The new van also has distinct styling, but from what the pictures show it sets itself apart from the competition for all the right reasons. The new nose is probably the most controversial aspect, featuring a stretched out hexagonal grille flanked by headlights and topped with a thick chrome bar. However, in profile it cuts a distinctive shape, with a sharp cutoff at the rear that bears a strong resemblance to the Ford Flex. The sculpting on the sides looks muscular without being heavy handed, and in general it all looks very nice. Our only quibble: The wheels, at least in the profile shots Nissan has distributed, look too small against all that sheetmetal.
