Despite we are still relying on rumors only, it looks like there’s a big chance to see a comeback of the familiar minivan. According to the latest reports, the 2020 Nissan Quest is about to come back. This minivan has been in production for decades and we have seen five generations of it so far. The last one ended its production cycle a couple of years ago and Nissan decided not to redesign it. We can speculate about true reasons but the fact is that minivans aren’t as popular as they used to be.
With numerous three-row crossovers in the offer, these vehicles aren’t the only choice for large families anymore. However, there is still a lot of potentials for such vehicles. After all, the market is full such models and most of them are selling pretty well. Therefore, it will be no wonder to see the 2020 Nissan Quest already in the next year.
2020 Nissan Quest Redesign
We expect to see lots of novelties on the 2020 Nissan Quest. Still, we count on a pretty similar base approach as on previous versions. Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind is the platform. We are pretty sure that the new model will continue its long-lasting relationship with the Altima and share a lot of parts once again.
The popular sedan has been redesigned recently and now rides on a new version of a familiar CMF platform. With such an upgrade, we have no doubt that the 2020 Nissan Quest would significantly improve comfort and overall driving characteristics. Traditionally, the two models would share lots of mechanics, though the new minivan would feature significantly longer wheelbase. We presume it would measure around 120 inches.
When it comes to minivans, you can’t expect miracles from designers. The overall shape can’t change too much, though we count on a more modern aesthetical approach. Of course, the focus would be on the new front end. At this point, it is still early for details, but we can presume that the 2020 Nissan Quest will follow the brand’s latest design language. It wasn’t always the case to see Quest sharing design language with the rest of the lineup, so we won’t exclude the possibility to see some unique appearance either. Still, the first options look far more likely.
We expect to see the implementation of the company’s latest, V-Motion grille design language, of course, as much as it is possible to adapt it to a minivan. The rest of the vehicle will come in a typical minivan body style. With these vehicles, it’s all about interior space and functionality, so there isn’t too much freedom for designers. The overall shape is about to remain quite similar, though we count on sharper lines and all the other things that are typical for today’s automotive industry.
When you have to compete with models like Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey, it’s pretty clear that you have to put a lot of effort to make a comfortable and convenient cabin. Nissan is perfectly aware of this fact, so we have no doubt that the new model would come with lots of improvements compared to the previous model. As we already mentioned, the new version will probably be slightly bigger than the previous generation, which indicates more space on the inside. Count on a typical three-row seating configuration, though with even more legroom this time, as well as on a completely new layout.
New seats, new features, new dashboard design. Those are the things we expect to see in the new 2020 Nissan Quest. Although these vehicles are mostly about passengers, we also count on a pretty luxurious approach when it comes to the dashboard design. Also, count on a full load of standard equipment, which would include the latest tech features in terms of convenience and entertainment, as well as in terms of advanced safety features.
2020 Nissan Quest Engine
We have no doubt that the new model would stick to its tradition. So, a familiar 3.5-liter V6 would be offered for sure. Of course, we count on the latest version of this engine, characterized by more power and better overall efficiency. Max output wold probably go around 300 horsepower, which is at the same level as competitors. Still, don’t exclude the possibility to see a turbo-four version. Of course, we count on a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 250 horsepower. Due to additional torque, this amount of power would be more than enough to provide a decent quality ride. When it comes to transmission, Nissan sticks to a CVT gearbox, which may not be the best choice for the great driving experience, but definitely ensures better fuel economy compared to traditional automatic gearboxes. AWD version is also possible.
2020 Nissan Quest Release Date and Price
The 2020 Nissan Quest is still just a rumor. Still, many reports are suggesting that the new model could come already in the next year. If it arrives, the base price would probably go around 30.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Pacifica etc.
