The new Nissan Maxima has been redesigned specifically to make it one of the sportiest sedans on the market today. The new 2016 model really takes the self-touted “four-door sports sedan” identity to the next level thanks to a full redesign, including an improved platform and powertrain features. The Maxima is now 2.2 inches longer and 1.3 inches lower to the ground than the previous model, giving it an even more aerodynamic look and driving experience.
The new Maxima also has a new exterior design, which looks sportier than the previous model but also brings the Maxima closer in looks to the rest of the Nissan lineup. For example, it now has the famous V-shaped grill design, comes with bold exterior styling overall, and offers tons of great trim options and extra features as well. The trims go from the baseline S trim all the way up to the Platinum trim, which comes with LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, and premium leather seats.
The Maxima is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque, combined with a continuously-variable transmission (CVT). The powertrain is a front-wheel-drive setup, and lets it go up to 60 mph in just six seconds. With all that power and luxury, the new Maxima is obviously the best choice in the luxury sedan segment. Come see us at Blackburn Nissan to learn about the Maxima and the rest of our lineup today.
