Unlike its competition, the Quest employs a very cohesive exterior look. The grille arrangement and headlights show a unique, geometrical look. The rear of the Quest is a big vertical square hatch.
Nissan powers the Quest with its 3.5-liter V-6, and engine that has found its way into many Nissan and Infiniti cars over the last decade. It produces 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque.
A high point of the drivetrain is the continuously variable transmission, which leads to smooth acceleration. It reacts well to accelerator input, dropping down to a lower ratio for more power.
