Three-row SUVs may be an expansion, but they are still far away from minivans when it comes to comfort and interior functionality. So, it’s no wonder that there is still a very high demand for these passenger-oriented vehicles. The Japanese manufacturer is perfectly aware of this, so a new version of a familiar nameplate is under consideration. Allegedly, we are about to see a comeback of a familiar nameplate, which will this time come as the 2020 Nissan Quest.
The new model would come with a lot of improvements compared to the previous model, which ended its production a couple of years ago. This time, Nissan would offer something that could compete with rivals more effectively, especially if we consider that this segment if full of some pretty serious names, such as Honda Oddysey, Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica. Latest reports are suggesting that the 2020 Nissan Quest could come already in the next year.
2020 Nissan Quest Redesign
Although this minivan has been out of production for a couple of years, we can legally call this a redesign. The new generation is about to come as the 2020 Nissan Quest and it should bring a lot of novelties. We presume that the company would like to fix all the issues that characterized the previous model.
One of the first things that come to mind is efficiency. Thanks to a new platform, the new version should be notably lighter, which would definitely play an important role in terms of fuel economy and overall fuel economy. On the other side, the 2020 Nissan Quest will probably be slightly bigger that the predecessor. One of the main reasons for such expectation is the cargo area, which should be more generous than before.
In terms of styling, these vehicles are pretty limited. No matter how creative you are, you can’t make minivan to look much different compared to rivals. The overall shape is always pretty much the same, though a new aesthetical approach could bring a little bit sharper lines, though we must say the previous model was quite sharp as well. On the other side, the front face will definitely be different. The new 2020 Nissan Quest is about to come with the front end that closely resembles Nissan’s latest design language. Therefore, we are about to see the familiar V-Motion grille, and it would be very interesting to see it on a minivan.
2020 Nissan Quest Interior
Minivans are all about comfort, so we have no doubt that the company will put a lot of effort into a cabin design. The previous model features pretty nice interior design, but we expect from the 2020 Nissan Quest to take everything to the completely next level. Of course, you can count on three spacious rows of seats. Moreover, all seats should be massive and supportive, on par with those in the first row. Of course, hi-quality materials also seem like a certain thing. Finally, we count on a long list of standard equipment. This list should be great in all aspects, starting from the latest infotainment system, touchscreen and other gadgetry. On the other side, we also count on a full load of advanced safety features and other driver assistance features.
When it comes to tech goodies, base models should come standard with all the essentials. That would include things like a touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, multiple USB ports, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, , smartphone-app navigation, voice control and many other things. Of course, higher trims will have even more things to offer.
2020 Nissan Quest Engine
All minivans in the segment feature V6 engine. So, we expect the same from the 2020 Nissan Quest. At this point, it is still early to talk about exact specs, but there is no doubt that we are about to see a well-known 3.5-liter V6 unit under the hood. Most likely, a max output would go around 300 horsepower, which are typical ratings for the class.
There is a chance to see a hybrid version in the offer as well. Unfortunately, we have no details about it at the moment.
2020 Nissan Quest Release Date and Price
At this moment, the 2020 Nissan Quest is just a rumor, so take all these paragraphs with a big reserve. Still, keep also in mind that some quite reliable sources suggest we could see this model back already in the next year. In any case, if it arrives, the price should be pretty typical for the segment, which means around 30.000 dollars for base versions.
Although minivans aren’t the most popular segment of the automotive industry, the competition is quite tough. There are several excellent models, such as Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Pacifica etc.
