2019 Nissan Maxima OVERVIEW

The 2019 Nissan Maxima, the brand's flagship sedan, gets a mid-cycle refresh with emphasis on style and safety technology. The Maxima retains the sophisticated character that has always defined it as a premium offering.

What's New for 2019

The Maxima receives styling updates to the front and rear, standard LED exterior lighting, new wheel designs, and rear seat-mounted side airbags. Surround-view cameras and rear automatic braking are available for the first time. The sporty SR model gains an optional Premium Package, and the Platinum Reserve serves as the new top trim.

Choosing Your Nissan Maxima

Every Maxima runs with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) delivers power to the front wheels. The Sport driving mode heightens throttle, transmission, and steering response. The Maxima is EPA-rated at 20 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway, and 24 combined.

Buyers now have a choice of six trim levels:


Priced at $34,845 (all prices include the $895 destination fee), the S comes thoroughly equipped with features like power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED running lights, push-button start with remote activation, a seven-inch driver information display, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. The infotainment system features satellite radio, an eight-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. There are no packages available on the S trim.


The $36,855 SV adds leather seats with front heat and driver lumbar adjustments, navigation, automatic high beams, heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Once again, there are no packages available.


For $39,335, the SL furnishes an array of extras: a panoramic sunroof, an 11-speaker Bose sound system, a heated steering wheel, a universal garage door opener, expanded passenger seat adjustments, LED interior accent lighting, and active noise cancellation for a higher level of quietness. The SL also gets no package options.


The $40,425 SR takes the Maxima in a sporty direction with specially tuned suspension and exhaust systems, 19-inch gloss black wheels, a gloss black rear spoiler, and body-color door handles. The inside gets paddle shifters, diamond-quilted leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, dark chrome trim, aluminum pedals, and a charcoal headliner. Safety gets a boost from automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. The panoramic sunroof reverts to option status. It's available in the $1,820 Premium Package, which also includes a surround-view camera system, rear automatic emergency braking, driver seat memory, and auto-tilting side mirrors with automatic dimming on the driver side.


The $42,335 Platinum comes standard everything available on the SR, minus the sportier suspension and trim. Exclusive upgrades include a power-adjustable steering wheel, expanded driver memory functions, wood-tone interior trim, a rear power sunshade, and 19-inch aluminum wheels.

Platinum Reserve

Topping off the Maxima line, the Platinum Reserve trim starts at $43,475. It gets adds 19-inch dark silver aluminum-alloy wheels, semi-aniline leather seating with unique inserts, heated rear seats, a two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel, Satin Bronze interior trim, and a charcoal headliner.

CarsDirect Tip

If you can live without a sunroof, the 2019 Nissan Maxima SV provides the feel of a luxury car for the price of a loaded family sedan. Whether to upgrade from there is a matter of how much you're willing to spend on better trim and assorted high-end features.
