Entering its 36th year of production, the Nissan Maxima has evolved into one of the most balanced four-door sedans on the market today. Powered by a robust 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque, each of the Maxima’s five available trim levels are totally free of optional extras, simplifying the car-buying experience. Starting with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $33,905 (which includes an $885 destination charge), the 2018 Nissan Maxima’s aggressive body lines, interior comfort, and ample technology features offers new car buyers value across the board.
What's New for 2018
Currently in its eighth generation in the United States, the 2018 Nissan Maxima adds Android Auto to the Maxima’s base trim infotainment system, which currently includes Apple CarPlay. Automatic emergency braking and forward-collision warning have also been added to all trims, while dual, rear-seat USB charge ports have been added to the SL, SR, and Platinum for 2018.
Choosing Your Nissan Maxima
The 2018 Nissan Maxima is available in five trim levels – the base S, SV, SL, SR, and Platinum. All trim levels feature multiple standard upgrades, but except for the SR, none of them have added equipment packages. The only real options available are dealer-installed accessories.
All Maxima’s are powered by the same robust 3.5-liter V6 engine, which produces 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable transmission is standard and helps the Maxima return an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon city and 30 mpg highway for a 25-mpg combined rating. Each of the 2018 Nissan Maxima's also includes a navigation system.
The 2018 Nissan Maxima is a balanced four-door crossover that can both appeal to sporty drivers and serves ably as a family sedan. While the lack of equipment packages might be a turn-off to some, the Maxima SL is a capable, reasonably priced package that comes with just the right amount of comfort for well under $40,000.
