The 2018 Nissan Maxima was designed with the driver experience in mind. Not only does it pack a punch in terms of power and efficiency, this sedan also has a luxurious interior stacked with various convenient technology features and remarkable active and passive safety systems.
Below, you’ll learn more about the highlights of what makes the Maxima stand out, starting with what you can find under its front hood.
Under the Hood of the Maxima
The 2018 Nissan Maxima has one engine for all six of its trim levels. The Maxima’s 3.5L DOHC V6 engine has many capabilities to be excited about, including its efficient EPA-estimated 30 highway/21 city MPG.1
This vehicle’s mechanical capabilities are enhanced by its front-wheel drivetrain and Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) with Drive Mode Selector. The combination of these systems allows for the Maxima to put out a notable 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque.
In a sedan, this much power output is helpful when it comes to handling. Additionally, you can opt for even more control with the available paddle shifters. Switch into manual shift mode using the Drive Mode Selector and shift up or down with ease to accommodate your driving conditions.
Impressive Interior Technology
To go along with its advanced power and efficiency, the 2018 Nissan Maxima is equipped with many standard and available technology features that will take your entertainment and convenience satisfaction to the next level.
In this sedan, you’ll be able to enjoy two different smart screen systems. The Advanced Drive-Assist® Display, which lives behind the steering wheel, will keep you updated on everything you need to know – like safety alerts, tire pressure, audio information, and more – without having to take your eyes too far off the road.
Additionally, you’ll be able to enjoy an 8-inch multi-touch infotainment center that will take care of all your entertainment needs. With standard features like Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Nissan Voice Recognition for audio and navigation, and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, you’ll stay safely connected wherever you go.
A Multitude of Safety Features
The 2018 Nissan Maxima is the recipient of several distinguished safety ratings, including a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration2 and a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.3
The Maxima’s many standard safety features are responsible for these ratings. Among its many other features, the Maxima is equipped with standard Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control System, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning.
In addition to these standard features, you can upgrade to access other available features like Bling Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. These two features use sensors to monitor the various blind spots of your vehicle, so you can back up and changes lanes with confidence.
