Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

As a luxury car from a non-luxury brand, the Nissan Maxima occupies an unusual position in the market. And that has been working in the buyer's favor. Nissan routinely offers exceptional rebates and incentives for the Maxima, placing its price within punching distance of people with Altima budgets.

We expect a new Maxima for the 2015 model year, which should make dealers even more open to discounts on outgoing 2014 Maximas.

What's New for 2014

The Maxima rolls into 2014 with just a few minor changes.

Nissan Maxima

Choosing your Maxima

The Maxima is powered by a 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 linked to a continuously variable transmission with available paddle shifters. The big front-wheel drive sedan delivers 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway—numbers that aren't bad for a five-passenger vehicle with a sporty attitude.

The process of choosing your Maxima is relatively simple—there are two models:

Nissan Maxima

3.5 S

The base S model comes well-equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, a moonroof and power front seats. The optional Limited Edition Package features smoked-appearance Xenon headlights, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, fog lights, outside mirrors with integrated turn signals and additional metallic trim.

3.5 SV

The SV adds around $3,000 to the price of an S, but brings amenities like leather upholstery, a rearview camera and xenon headlights. The SV trim level also grants access to a host of option groups that include the Sport Package (sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels, sport-style grille and rear spoiler) and Premium Package (dual panel moonroof, Atlantic cherry wood-tone trim and rear-window power sunshade).

Maxima's wide range of available technology available à la carte includes a Bose premium audio system with nine speakers as well as Nissan's hard-drive navigation system.

CarsDirect Tip

The Maxima is ideal for buyers who want the luxury of an INFINITI with a less showy Nissan badge. Because of exceptional discounting, we see the best value in a well-equipped SV.
