2014 Nissan Quest Safety

7.0
On Safety

The Quest lacks some of the newest safety technologies found in a few of its competitors, and it hasn't yet been rated by the agencies that crash-test cars for 2014. 

The Quest does have a good amount of standard safety equipment, though it's far from class-leading. Dual front, side and curtain airbags are standard; so are anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control. A rearview camera is standard on the top three trim levels, with a 360-degree-view camera on the LE, but none is unavailable on the base Quest. The top Quest model also has a blind-spot warning system.

With a low rating in the roof-crush crash test, the Quest doesn't earn safety scores as high as its competition.

Nissan's tire-pressure monitors are standard as well, and they beep a warning at drivers when a tire is low. On models with power sliding side doors, a periodic beep signals the doors' closing.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't yet crash-tested the current Quest. 

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tested the 2013 Quest under its new regimen, which includes a roof-crush score. The Quest does well in front-impact and side-impact tests, but in the roof-strength test, it earns an "acceptable" rating--the lowest in the segment, aside from the outgoing Kia Sedona. That score prevents the Quest from earning the IIHS' Top Safety Pick designation, a key for a vehicle in such a safety-conscious segment.
