Shift Maxima’s Drive Mode Selector into Sport and it’s like kicking in the afterburners. Throttle response gets sharper, steering gets heavier, shifts get quicker, and the engine growl becomes a roar. Switch back to Normal Mode and supersonic gives way to super-smooth, super-refined, and surprisingly fuel-efficient.
Under the hood lies the beating heart: Nissan's legendary VQ V6 engine. From sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, to the high-flow tuned induction system, more than 60% of the engine's components have been re-designed for the new Maxima. It even borrows some performance technology from the mighty GT-R®. This 300HP powerhouse exhilarates from idle to redline.
Maxima’s racing-inspired D-shaped steering wheel is flat on the bottom for added leg clearance. Double-stitched, textured, contoured, with an available contrasting Alcantara® insert. Even the wheel makes a performance statement.
Up front, the boomerang-shaped headlights feature a captivating LED signature line that stays illuminated at all times. In back, LEDs also accent the wraparound taillights, and “4DSC” is embossed in the lamp housings, front and rear — a subtle reminder of what the Maxima® is all about.
18” Aluminum alloy wheels are aggressively styled, exclusively for Maxima®, while Maxima® SR raises the bar with 19” aluminum-alloy wheels and specially developed Goodyear® Eagle® F1 Asymmetric tires that help give you razor-sharp steering response and outstanding grip.
Dual mufflers with rolled, chrome-tipped finishers.
Inspired by the layout of a modern fighter jet, Maxima® surrounds you in its luxurious, yet functional cockpit. A deeply bolstered sport seat helps keep you in place, the tall, angled center stack envelopes you and delivers all necessary information clearly and concisely, and every button, switch, and dial is exactly where you need it.
Maxima's sport-styled heated and cooled front seats are bolstered at just the right width and height to conform to your body and help keep you in place, even during high-G cornering.
Maxima’s cutting-edge technology connects you to your ride, and the road, like no other sports sedan. The standard 8” multi-touch control screen and the 7” Advanced Drive-Assist® Display keep key information as close as a glance. A standard navigation system guides you to where you want to go, and with navigation “Swipe to Meter”, you can even send map directions from one screen to the other with just a swipe. Standard NissanConnect, standard Bluetooth® hands-free communications, an available Bose® Premium Audio system, turn-by-turn navigation—the list goes on. And of course, the Display Commander is there, letting you dial it all in from a single, central location.
There are few things worse than getting into a cold car on a frigid winter morning, or into a sweltering car on a summer afternoon. With the Remote Engine Start System, you can use your compatible smartphone to heat up or cool down your Maxima® to the comfortable temperature it was when you left it.
Tight squeeze? Maxima’s available Around View Monitor features four cameras to give you a virtual 360º bird’s-eye view of your vehicle. Selectable split-screen close-ups offer front, rear, and curbside views to help you slip in and out of spaces like a pro.
Connected and Assisted Search gives you the ability to conduct a point of interest search around your vehicle, while Destination Download gives you access to embedded map providers like Google® Maps so you can send searches directly to your Maxima®
One look at Maxima’s "floating" roof appearance and the aeronautical influence is clear. The A, B, and C-pillars meld seamlessly into the glasswork, so the roof appears to hover over the cabin, just like the canopy of a fighter jet. Also available is the one touch dual panel panoramic power moonroof.
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System has front air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. In addition, Maxima® features front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensors.
