The assortment of gauges and controls on the center stack disappear from the 2007 Nissan Quest. They now reside in a more traditional location—on the dash and in front of the driver. The Quest keeps much of its signature exterior look, but it offers a new grille, headlights, and accents.
The exterior sports a new grille, a revised roof rack, new headlights, and modified accents. Other than these improvements, the 2007 Nissan Quest keeps its iconic look, setting it apart from other minivans on the market. Wheels measure 16 inches and come with wheel covers, or Nissan offers 17-inch alloy wheels. The Quest sits on a wheelbase of 124 inches, and has an overall length of 204.1 inches.
When properly equipped, the Quest has a maximum towing capacity of 3500 pounds.
The base 3.5 comes equipped with 16-inch wheels, variable intermittent wipers, privacy glass, a rear defogger, swing-out rear quarter windows, a rear window wiper, a rear liftgate door, power mirrors, and two manual-sliding side doors.
The interior of the 2007 Nissan Quest looks spacious, offering comfortable seating for seven. The instrument cluster and controls now seem well-placed and easy to operate. One detractor remains the lack of a split-folding third-row seat. Also cargo capacity behind the third-row seat remains less than in other minivans. Nissan’s redesign for 2007 improves the fit and finish of interior components and reduces road noise, which makes it more appealing to buyers.
