All Maximas get a 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower, mated to a continuously variable transmission. It's a more powerful version of the setup used in vehicles like the Murano crossover, Infiniti JX and the new Nissan Altima V6. Every model gets front, side and curtain airbags, electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, split-folding rear seat and tilt-and- telescoping steering wheel.Read more »
The S trim level comes with a long equipment list, even though it's the base Maxima. Standard on all S models are 18-inch alloy wheels, leather- wrapped steering wheel that tilts and telescopes, Bluetooth with iPod integration, cloth seats with 8-way power adjustments for the driver and 4-way power for the front passenger, keyless entry and start and a trip computer. The optional Limited Edition package nets dark silver wheels with matching grille, xenon headlamps, foglights, rear spoiler and a compass in the rearview mirror.
The SV not only includes another flood of standard features, but also opens up the Maxima buyer to options like navigation and sports suspension. All SVs get leather seats, 9-speaker Bose audio with satellite radio and Homelink. The Monitor Package adds a 7-inch screen with backup camera and a USB connector. The Cold Weather Package adds heated front seats, steering wheel and outside mirrors. The Premium Package packs in a dual-pane moonroof, power sunshade for the back window, a cooled driver's seat, ambient lighting, xenon headlamps, power adjustment for the steering wheel and bucket seats for the back that replace the 3-place bench. The Sport Package has a sport- tuned suspension, 19-inch wheels, premium leather seats and extra chassis reinforcement. And the Technology Package includes Nissan's excellent navigation system with SiriusXM traffic and weather.
