The 2017 NissanMaxima is one of the most dynamically styled sedans in its class. It also boasts performance to match. Buyers will love its sharp handling, long list of standard features, and the extra security in knowing it received top crash test scores.
The Nissan Maxima is available in five trim levels: S, SV, SL, SR, and Platinum.
Powering the Maxima is a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. This comes standard on all models and is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive.
The Maxima has a sharp, sporty exterior design that is unlike anything else in its class. Standard exterior features on the S trim include 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, automatic headlights, and LED running lights. Higher trims add parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, heated exterior mirrors, a sport-tuned suspension, a rear spoiler, and more.
Take a seat inside and you might think you just climbed into a luxury brand vehicle. High-quality materials are used throughout the cabin. With Nissan’s Zero Gravity seats, you will stay comfortable and supported even on the longest trips.
The Maxima includes standard safety features like traction and stability control, airbags, antilock brakes, and a rearview camera. The SL, SR, and Platinum trims also include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a forward collision warning and mitigation system that includes automatic braking. With the Platinum model, it adds a 360-degree camera system with moving object detection, and a driver drowsiness monitor.
The 2017 Nissan Maxima earned a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating.
