After a one-year sabbatical, the minivan will return to Nissan dealerships with a fully-redesigned exterior and more functionality than ever. Under the hood is a 3.5-litre V6 producing 260 horsepower through an adaptive CVT that improves mileage by 10 percent in the city and 4 percent on the highway. The seven-passenger Quest will also offer a pair of flat-folding rear benches, tri-zone climate control and one-touch power sliding doors.

Meanwhile, the Ellure Concept foreshadows Nissan's next-generation sedan, combining performance, driving excitement, cargo capacity, passenger comfort and sustainable mobility – basically everything a customer wants! The vehicle uses a hybrid powertrain and aerodynamic shapes to improve fuel economy.
