Under the hood lies its beating heart: Nissan’s legendary VQ V6 engine. From sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, to the high-flow tuned induction system, it’s designed to exhilarate.
Adrenaline on tap. Put it in Sport, and you’ll sharpen throttle response, steering feel and transmission tuning for a pulse-raising ride. The system even pumps a more powerful engine note into the cabin, thanks to available Active Sound Enhancement.
Engineered to satisfy even the most die-hard enthusiast, Maxima’s next-generation Xtronic CVT features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. The result is a more connected, spirited driving experience – all without sacrificing fuel economy.
The available paddle shifters are mounted on the steering column, so they’re always within easy reach – even on corners when Maxima’s steering wheel is clocked 90° – making the perfect gear ratio just a fingertip-blip away.
Available climate-controlled front seats offer individual heating and cooling for driver and passenger, making comfort as easy as turning a knob.
Using the Nissan Intelligent Key® or your compatible smartphone, you can start the Maxima remotely and heat up or cool down the cabin before getting inside. So every time you climb in, it’s at the perfect temperature.
Maxima’s sport-styled front seats are deeply bolstered to help keep you in place – even during high-G cornering. Plus, inspired by zero-gravity space travel, their natural, neutral seating position can help reduce fatigue.
Maxima was designed with the listener in mind. And when equipped with the Bose® Premium Audio System, you don't just get premium audio, you get an elevated auditory sound experience.
The Nissan Advanced Air Bag System features front air bags with seat belt and occupant- classification sensors. Maxima is also equipped with front and rear seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensors help keep you safe.
Under certain hard braking situations, the ABS is able to pump the brakes faster than you possibly can, helping to prevent wheel lockup and allowing you to continue to steer while braking heavily.
This advanced body constructioncombines impact-absorbing structures with a high-strength cabin, which helps provide protection for you and your passengers.
