Nissan Quest

Nissan has released a series of images of the fourth-generation US market Quest minivan, set to be unveiled at the 2010 LA auto show and due to go on sale in early 2011. Details of the car are scarce, though from what we can see in these images, it appears that the Quest may have grown in all dimensions, particularly in width.

The third generation Quest stood out in the minivan market due to its wave-like shoulder line, and its unorthodox resolution with the base of the A-pillar, hood, and fender. Nissan's images of the new car are darkened in an attempt to give a ‘teaser' feel but from what we can see, the profile of the Quest has retained some of the forward-diving nature of the previous car, but the overall resolution is much calmer. The car also features a striking new DRG. Yet the overall effect appears to have created a much more boxy, typically minivan style vehicle.

Inside, the Quest features some familiar Nissan parts and switchgear, the IP flowing in a double wave from a neat center-console, albeit one that contains a large gear-shifter, which we suspect may obscure some of the infotainment and HVAC controls from the driver's reach.
