Gas mileage: 19 city and 24 highway mpg
Macho factor: All the high-tech bells and whistles.
When it comes to a mine-has-it-and-yours-doesn't argument, the owner of the Nissan Quest LE is going to come out on top nearly every time. Its standard features are staggering.
Brimming with all the must-have features, such as hard-drive-based navigation system, rear-seat DVD entertainment system and second-row, 11-inch DVD monitor, blind-spot warning system, power-folding/return third-row seat, power liftgate, rearview camera and iPod integration, Quest LE is the whole package.
The 260 horsepower developed by the 3.5-liter V-6 engine are delivered to the front wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission.
Nissan has a reputation for sporty handling and this includes Quest.
Seating for up to seven is comfortable. The second- and third-row seats don't fold flat with the cargo floor, but when folded down, make 108.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo room.
In addition to the standard equipment already listed, the Quest LE provides full power accessories, leather seating, tri-zone automatic climate control, trip computer, heated front seats, leather-wrapped, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with redundant audio controls, and a 13-speaker, Bose-infused audio system with 8-inch color display, CD player and USB port.
