2012 Nissan Quest LE: It's Like an Infiniti in Here
January 20, 2012
My colleague Mr. Frio was right (for once.) Our long-term 2012 Nissan Quest LE is grand. The interior is supremely luxurious for a van -- it's like an Infiniti in there.
Check out the rich leather upholstry -- with piping! Then there's the nice leather-wrapped steering wheel and quality wood (look) on the dash. Finally, there's that rotary knob/touch panel interface for the navi/radio. It looks and operates just like that on Infinitis.
But where our Quest differs from other Infinitis, in general, is in the ride. I've found the ride quality on our long-term M, FX, and some G-series that I've sampled to be too firm and uncomfortable. Not so on the Quest. Although I haven't driven it on the freeway for an extended time, the ride I've experienced is silky smooth -- and like a Lexus -- not an Infiniti.
Overall, the Quest is my favorite van, so far.
And like JLo and Pitbull, it's something else that Frio and I can agree on.
