The Maxima’s exterior is aggressive and eye-catching. Featuring a unique V-Motion grille with the chrome Nissan insignia in the center and LED daytime running lights surrounded by angular LED headlights, the hood has a sculpted look. The Nissan Maxima comes in five different trim levels. Buyers may choose between the S, SV, SL, SR, Platinum, and Platinum Reserve. The base S trim comes with quad-tipped exhaust finishers, all-season tires, automatic headlights, acoustic glass, speed-sensing windshield wipers, and 18-inch wheels. Buyers can choose to add 19-inch wheels, fog lights, a spoiler, heated side mirrors with turn signals, an auto-dimming driver-side mirror, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a dual-panel power panoramic moonroof.
The Maxima delivers a smooth ride and quick acceleration. The 2021 model outperforms competing full-size sedans in its class. The 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission puts out 300 horsepower and a zero to 60 mph acceleration in just 5.7 seconds. You’ll be navigating tight turns and sprinting down the straights in the nimble Maxima.
Beyond the quick acceleration and the tight turn navigation, the new Maxima outperforms the competition in more ways than one when it comes to performance. While you might suspect fuel economy to be a sacrifice of the impressive power capabilities, the 2021 Maxima is great for everyday commutes and long road trips with an impressive fuel economy of 30 mpg on the highway.
