Nissan Quest shows off its useful cargo space in new ad – Click above to watch video after the jump

After skipping a model year in transition, the new 2011 Nissan Quest is on the scene, and Nissan needs to win over prospective minivan shoppers. So, it's time for the ad onslaught to begin. In this new spot, Nissan highlights the Quest's storage capacity by showcasing a harried mom balancing (literally) a Herculean shopping load, two kids and her poor cone-wearing pooch. Naturally, it all goes south, but the Quest magically saves the day and eradicates rank dog breath to boot. See for yourselves after the jump.

      This new Quest looks HUGE.

      So I take it that while in some other segments, vehicles are getting a little smaller, the minivan race is still going the other way. :rolleyes:

      I love how marketers have convinced parents that they somehow "need" a vehicle the size of a bus to transport their rug-rats, while so many of us grew up just fine in the cramped rear seats of some econobox back in the 70s and 80s.

        "Having more than 2 kids, with the necessity of car seats, makes any standard car impossible."

        Oh come one now, that's hyperbole.
        My buddy just added another kid to his family and his Civic easily fits 2 child seats in back (with room to spare) with no issues at all... and while the Civic is most definitely larger than it was in generations past, its still a fairly small car.

        @ Hazdaz:
        Perhaps I was not clear. 2 kids are easy. My daily driver is an '01 Wrangler, and I have 2 kids. Now you can't get much less practical than that!
        It is the 3rd kid that makes most cars tough. Until Age 8 they are stuck in a car seat or booster, and by age 12 they are getting big enough that a "bump" of a middle seat won't cut it. So you get a sweet spot for a few years, and that's it.

        Now, part of the problem is the car seats and boosters. You cannot find one that is narrow. They are all wider than Oprah's a$$ after she fell off the diet wagon (again.)

        Anyone that wants more than 2 kids should first be checked by a shrink because I've seen my buddy and his wife running around and with just 2 kids they seem to never have a moment's rest.

        I think there is a very good reason why the US averages about 2.1 kids per couple... any more than that is insane.

      That is the first minivan that I've seen that I wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen in.

      Nicely don't Nissan.

        Nice "don't" ??

        I need to stop drinking when I post.

      they should have bought it here WITH the JDM front end...
        • 3 Years Ago
        I agree with you. But Nissan has been doing a good job already. Always support you, Nissan. Bring us some more JDM models, especially the Urvan.

      Breaking from the rest, it's horrible. Not as bad as the new Honda, but not a fan of the squared off look. Styling wise I think the new Toyota is the best. Some of these vans are heading into SUV sized territory with fuel economy to match. Sticker says 19 MPG, my Tahoe was doing 17.

        I don't feel the need to squander my money on more vehicles than I can drive. I guess that makes me a loser.

        And yet, somehow, my life goes on...
        • 3 Years Ago
        Funny, it's almost like the sticker has nothing to do with real-world fuel economy! Imagine that.

        MajorGeek, your immaturity tells me you have 6 cars...in Gran Turismo 5.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Ya all know im right. Oh wait, unlike you posers here, I buy 2 or more cars a year and all you people do is comment on vehicles you DON'T buy which is why this newest Quest looks like this. There are posres and there are actual consumers.

      Looks like a giant step ahead of the previous Quest

      @Hazdaz: In your Civic example, 2 car seats fill the back seat. Where's the 3rd child and wife sitting? They can't both sit in the front?

      Cool minivan! Also, one of the readers mentioned the dvd screen not opening, but that screen opens automatically not manually. Like the ones in some airplanes.

      By far the best minivan on the market...
