It seems like the recent discontinuation of the familiar minivan is only temporary and that the company already works on a new 2019 Nissan Quest. This minivan has been around for years. Characterized by compact size but plenty of space inside the cabin, it was the first choice for many buyers. Still, the last version ended its production cycle about a year ago. Many of us believed that this would be the end.
However, it looks like this is only a break and that the new generation will come quite soon. So far, this minivan has been closely related to the popular Altima sedan. Considering that this model was redesigned recently, we can expect same kinds of changes on the 2019 Quest. This means a lot of novelties, especially in terms of styling, interior design, and fuel economy. According to the latest reports, the new model should come in the next year.
2019 Nissan Quest redesign
This potential redesign is about to bring a lot of novelties. The 2019 Nissan Quest should come in improvements in all aspects. Considering that previous versions were closely related to familiar sedan Altima, we could expect the same from the new model. The new Altima came quite recently with a bunch of changes. Of course, there is a new platform, which brings a lot of benefits. One of them is weight saving, which should be significant in this case. In practice, this means better driving dynamics, as well as fuel economy.
Also, count on a more spacious cabin. This minivan has always featured a lot of space inside the cabin but we expect improvements in this aspect as well. Finally, there is a new styling, which should provide much better visual appeal that will attract a wider range of buyers.
2019 Nissan Quest styling
When it comes to visual appearance, we expect 2019 Nissan Quest to be much more attractive compared to the previous model. The new minivan should be adapted to the brand’s newest design language. That means a lot of common details, such as grille, headlights etc. Still, consider that this is a minivan, so specific shape requires a bit of reshaping of these exterior parts. Expect a lot of sharper lines which should provide not only a more attractive stance but better aerodynamics as well.
When it comes to the interior design, expect to see a completely new cabin, characterized by better-quality materials. Also, expect to see a completely new styling, highlighted by the new dashboard design, which should mimic the Altima’s one. Besides new shape, the new dash should come with the completely new organization of controls, probably in a more digital manner that before.
2019 Nissan Quest engines
When it comes to powertrain, we presume that the 2019 Nissan Quest will stick to the proven V6 power. It means a familiar 3.5-liter unit, which powers the previous-generation model as well. Of course, expect to see few tweaks that will provide better overall efficiency, which in practice means more power and better fuel economy. Still, there is also a chance to see one more engine in the offer.
Some reports suggest a company’s new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Backed up with a turbocharger, this unit offers excellent efficiency, so it’s no wonder that the total output goes up to 250 horsepower. Seems like more than enough power for such type of vehicle.
2019 Nissan Quest release date and price
Although there is no official confirmation, many reports suggest that the new 2019 Nissan Quest could come already in the next year. More precise details are still unknown, though. Same goes for the price, which is yet to be announced, although we don’t expect some significant differences compared to the previous model.
