2016 Nissan Maxima OVERVIEW

The Nissan Maxima brands itself as a four-door sports car, but with front-wheel drive, an automated continuously variable transmission (CVT) and options to rival the big name luxury brands, it’s a practical and affordable alternative to European sport sedans.

What's New For 2016

The Maxima has been completely redesigned.

Choosing Your Nissan Maxima

All Maximas have a 3.5-liter V6 and a CVT with a sport mode for faster throttle response, improved steering feel and transmission programming. There are no options. Rather, buyers choose from five trim levels that add features progressively as they graduate from the base S to the range-topping Platinum.


Starting at $32,410, the entry-level S is far from entry-level. You get the NissanConnect Infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen display in the dash, and a 7-inch display in the gauge cluster. This system has Bluetooth connectivity, navigation and a backup camera. Also included are 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and LED signature lighting.


Priced at $34,390, the SV adds key features like leather seating, heated in front and with power adjustment for the driver. It also includes front and rear parking assistance and LED turn signals on the rearview mirrors.


With an MSRP of $36,890, the SL is notable for a dramatic panoramic moonroof, an updated sound system from the experts at Bose, and a heated steering wheel. Safety features include a host of driver aids like forward collision emergency braking and warning systems for both blind spots and rear cross traffic.


The $37,670 SR is the sportiest model and the only one to get athletic 19-inch wheels, a sport suspension and a Dynamics-Control Module that constantly adjusts the chassis, engine, brakes and transmission for fully optimized performance driving. The sportiness continues with Ascot Leather and Alcantara on seating surfaces, and a steering wheel with paddle shifters.


At $39,860, the Platinum is geared more toward luxury than the Sport. Buyers still get the supple Ascot leather, but have the choice of diamond-quilted leather or Alcantara inserts. The front seats are heated and cooled for maximum comfort. The Platinum also comes with an AroundView Monitor that gives the driver an unobstructed 360-degree perspective.

CarsDirect Tip

Most buyers will find what they're looking for in the mid-range SV and SL. The performance-oriented SR is still a good value, though, as is the Platinum, which is a luxury car without a luxury car's price tag or pretense.
