Los Angeles, California – Unveiled today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the redesigned, fourth generation Nissan Quest minivan, offers an extensive list of family friendly innovations and amenities, says the company.  It’s set to go on sale at Nissan dealers in early 2011.

“The all-new Nissan Quest ‘gets’ parenting,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.  “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.”  “While it can’t promise to make parenting easier, or your kids better behaved, the new Quest can make your life as a parent a little less chaotic,” added Castignetti.

Among the new Quest’s available “Innovation for Family” design features are:

– One-touch power sliding side doors that easily unlock and open with a single touch, even with arms and hands full of groceries

– Dual Opening glass moonroofs (two), providing refreshing breezes to front and rear occupants when open

– 2nd row power windows

– Standard Quick Release Fold-Flat 2nd and 3rd row seats to make a flat load floor, and available 3rd row power-return seatback on LE

– Quick Comfort heated front seats with advanced staged heating system design

– Removable 2nd row console with cupholders and lid

– Always-available large, covered Permanent Rear Storage Well

– Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) intelligent HVAC system with Plasmacluster air purifier, Grape Polyphenol Filter and auto recirculation

– Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system and RearView Monitor

– Conversation mirror, which helps enhance visibility and conversation with children in the 2nd and 3rd rows

– Standard 2nd and 3rd row theatre seating with available large rear 11-inch color monitor and auto bright function

– Easy maneuverability, with small turning radius and front triangle windows for enhanced visibility

– Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy Fill Tire Alert, which alerts you when proper tire inflation is reached

“This new dimension in minivans was conceived to provide smart prioritization, fulfilling the traditional, often child-centric needs of everyday life, but also the more emotional aspects of personal style, driving pleasure and unforgettable family vacations,” said Castignetti. “It’s designed to mirror the multi-purpose comfort and warmth of a home’s ‘great room’ and lets you take it along on the road.”
