The powerful 3.0-liter 300 horsepower Maxima is unmatched in speed and performance in its class and the 2018 Nissan Maxima has even more zing, even more refinement and ultimate in luxury and styling both on the Exterior and Interior. The Nissan dealer appraised that the Maxima is no new kid on the block and debuted over two decades ago under the Datsun banner before it became Nissans platform favorite 4-door sport car to introduce all its newest features and its now in its eighth generation.
The Maxima delivers exhilarating performance with its V6 engine that can be switched between Normal and Sport modes to pump up the adrenalin with the easy to use drive mode selector. You are also looking at Nissans Xtronic Continuous Variable Transmission that breaks out of the bounds of traditional transmission systems without compromising fuel economy. For the sport perfectionist community, you have the steering mounted paddle shifters, so you can shift gears efficiently.
Performance and handling apart, the Nissan Maxima is one of the most stylish and sleek sport car you would lay your eyes on. We take a quick look at the exterior and interior styling of the 2018 Nissan Maxima.
Breathtaking Exterior Styling
The Nissan Maxima is one enchanting luxury sport vehicle with its smooth flowing almost wavy frame from front to back. The inclined windshield rises subtly from the elongated curvy hood and blends smoothly into the glass roofline assisted by the blacked-out side support pillars that gives the appearance of a ‘floating roof’ adding a feeling of lightness and speed. The aerodynamic design is perfectly complemented starting with the luxurious bold accents on the front grille that aid dynamism. The Maxima sports signature boomerang shaped headlights and tail lights with the headlights incorporating an illuminated LED signature line and the tail lights incorporating the integrated LED signature.
Coming in six luxurious trims, the S, SV, SL, SR, SR Midnight Edition and Platinum, the Maxima sports precision sculpted 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels on the S, SV, SL and 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels the SR upwards. LED Daytime Running Lights and intelligent auto headlights are standard across the trims. The Black exterior accents, black alloy wheels and black sport spoiler on the Midnight Edition is quite mersmerising.
Exhilarating and Luxurious Interiors
The interior of the 2019 Nissan Maxima let you know you are looking at no ordinary car with its visible comfort, color tones, trims, elegance, concentrated layout or the dash, console and controls and sculpted shapes. Most noticeable in the interiors is the amazing all round visibility of the outside, especially the dual panel panoramic moonroof. Drive out in the evenings and after sunset and you pleasantly realize that everything in the vehicle is still optimally visible thanks to its ambient lighting.
The Nissan dealership showcased the entire range of seating appointments that are available in a wide variety of premium perforated leather in a variety of color tones such as the Charcoal Asccot Leather, Camel Leather and Alcantara Accents. The side trims are exuberant as well with Razor Steel, Liquid Chrome, Aluminum and Mahogany Wood Tones.
The driver gets a power 8-way seat with the SV upwards getting the 4-way power lumbar support as well. 4-way power front passenger seat is standard across all trims.
