Nissan Quest Interior

The 2015 Nissan Quest’s cabin features a handsome design, excellent build quality and upscale materials that wouldn’t seem out of place in an Infiniti luxury vehicle, according to test drivers. Though it has fewer standard feature than its rivals, reviewers note that the Quest has easy-to-use audio, climate and navigation systems. The Quest has a small cargo area for the class, but auto writers report that its seats fold flat conveniently and are comfortable in all three rows.

  • "Interior materials are above average in the lower trims, while the leather-appointed cabins in the SL and Platinum versions create a luxurious and serene environment." -- Edmunds
  • "Inside, the Quest is surprisingly luxurious, with an attractive, Infiniti-like dashboard and abundant high-quality materials." -- Left Lane News
  • "The 7-passenger Quest's great interior volume and handsomely appointed interior set the class standard. Everything you touch has a premium feel worthy of an upscale Infiniti vehicle." -- Kelley Blue Book (2014)
  • "Interior assembly quality is top-notch. Quest's cabin is inviting and comfortable, with standard woodgrain trim in the first row and padded soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Seating

The 2015 Nissan Quest seats seven on standard cloth upholstery. Available features include leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and heated front seats. Reviewers praise the Quest for its comfortable first-, second- and third-row seating positions. They also note that the second and third rows have raised, theater-style seating positions, which provide good visibility for passengers.

  • "There's ample room for seven passengers to sit in comfort (eight-passenger seating isn't available), however, and theater seating means that second- and third-row occupants have an excellent view out the windows." -- Left Lane News
  • "The Quest's second-row seats slide and recline, and are quite comfortable." -- Edmunds
  • "The first- and second-row captain’s chairs (there is no second-row-bench option) are superbly comfortable, and even the third row isn’t a penalty box, thanks to theater-style seating and the absence of a second-row center seatback." -- Car and Driver (2011)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2015 Nissan Quest include a four-speaker audio system, an auxiliary audio input and push-button start. Available features include a sunroof, power sliding doors, a power liftgate, a USB port, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation, tri-zone automatic climate control and blind spot monitoring. Nissan's Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection is also available. It uses multiple cameras to provide a 360-degree view around the Quest and warn when moving obstacles are nearby.

According to automotive journalists, the Nissan Quest has user-friendly audio and climate controls. Test drivers also note that the optional navigation system is easy to use and has a large screen. However, rivals like the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna have more standard features, including a rearview camera and Bluetooth. To get those features in the Quest, you’d have to spend over $30,000.

  • "Its elegantly sweeping dashboard smoothly blends into the door panels, and the center stack's controls are logically grouped within easy reach of the driver. Even on the upper trim levels, operating the various climate, navigation and entertainment systems is simple and intuitive." -- Edmunds
  • "The available navigation system's screen is large and inset into the dashboard for easy visibility. It can be operated via touchscreen or a combination of buttons and a large central dial. It's fairly intuitive and doesn't absorb audio and climate functions." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Cargo

The 2015 Nissan Quest has 108.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row of seats, 63.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 25.7 cubic feet behind the third row. Test drivers write that the Quest has an unusually small cargo area because its second- and third-row seats can’t be removed or stored under the floor, although they do fold flat. There is also a large under-floor cargo area behind the third-row seat, which reviewers like. Several auto writers report that the Quest has a number of convenient storage areas in the cabin.

  • "Unlike most of its rivals, the Quest's third-row seats fold forwards onto the floor instead of folding backwards into the floor, resulting in a relative paucity of space." -- Left Lane News
  • "Also, Nissan's convenient flat-folding seats result in less maximum cargo space than rival minivans." -- Edmunds
  • "Small items storage is decent and comprised of several cubbies, a large glovebox, and 16 cup and bottle holders." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "In addition to the cargo space above the folded seats, the Quest features a huge cargo well behind the third-row. How large? Big enough for your 5-foot 9-inch author to climb in and close the twin covers over his only slightly folded body." -- Automobile Magazine (2011)
