"The all-new Nissan Quest 'gets' parenting. While minivans remain one of the most maligned symbols of adulthood, where some see them as a surrendering of youth and fun, Nissan sees the minivan as a celebration of family life – not only for moms on weekdays, but for fun times with the entire family on weekends," said Al Castignetti, Nissan North America general manager.
The new Quest has been priced at $27,750.
