What's New for the 2018 Nissan Maxima?

The 2018 Nissan Maxima continues its role as the brand's sports sedan. The emphasis is on the sport, and this year's Maxima has plenty of horsepower to prove it. Signature boomerang lights and a black-accented V-Motion grille suggest the car's racy attitude. A floating roof and kick-up C-pillars add to an upscale curb appeal.

Great Trims to Choose From

As a premium car, the Maxima comes packed with standards even at its affordable entry price. With push button start and a programmable thermostat, fine technologies make life easier. Made with Zero Gravity foam, the front power chairs are remarkably comfortable, even on long trips. A big backseat welcomes passengers. SV trims have leather upholstery and heated seats with manual thigh support extensions. Shades of Cashmere beige and rich Camel keep the interior lighter than typical black upholstery. Even the Charcoal upholstery keeps things lighter with a special blue stitch for accent. Standard on the SL, a panoramic sunroof may change the way you view the world. A lush Ascot leather with Alacantara inserts dress up the SR edition. Mahogany accents and diamond-quilted leather combine for the upscale look of the Maxima Platinum. Drivers will appreciate a power-adjustable steering wheel. The power-operated rear sunshade can reduce glare and heat for everyone. Every Maxima comes with the NissanConnect system. A touch screen provides full navigation, helping the Maxima driver find the way. Apple CarPlay helps you make more out of the system when you have an iPhone. Android Auto does the same for Android phone users. HD radio and NissanConnect apps add more ways to find entertainment and information. Adding to the premium feel, Maximas have active noise cancellation to offset road noise.

Powerful Engine

2018 Nissan Maxima ExteriorPart of the Maxima's allure is its powerful V6. The engine kicks out 300 horsepower to make the Maxima fun to drive. A continuously variable transmission regulates the car's 261 lb.-ft. of torque. Built lighter than most cars in this class, the Maxima uses its horsepower-to-weight ratio to great advantage. Using electronics to control for errors, Active Trace Control improves cornering. Active Ride Control recognizes unwanted motions such as bumps and vibrations. It can reduce the throttle to offset them and ensure a premium ride quality for those aboard the sports sedan. The SR utilizes a sport-tuned suspension to give the driver more excitement behind the wheel.

Safety First

2018 Nissan Maxima RearThe Maxima has a good record of keeping people safe. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given it five stars in all crash categories. The Insurance Institute named it a Top Safety Plus. Maximas comes with an Intelligent Forward Collision Warning system. Watching further ahead than the normal system, the driver has more time to avoid a bad situation. The warning is backed up by an emergency autobrake. This valuable standard costs much more on other premium and upscale sedans, but it is part of your purchase with any Maxima. Other available features include the Intelligent Around View® monitor with exclusive Moving Object Detection. The Intelligent Driver Alertness system will monitor for signs of drowsy or distracted driving. A blind spot monitor reveals side traffic and helps with lane changes. With this blanket of assistance, a driver has more peace of mind every day.
