The 2019 model year is poised to be a busy one for Nissan, which recently updated both of its mid-size offerings. For the sporty and upscale Maxima, the Japanese automaker has given the model a mid-cycle refresh that also comes with a slightly higher price tag.

As a refresher, the 2019 Nissan Maxima, which made an appearance at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show, has an updated design with a new grille, revised front and rear bumpers, new headlights, and LED daytime running lights that feature a boomerang design. The interior of the sedan has been updated, as well, with a new Rakuda Tan semi-aniline leather package that's available on the range-topping Platinum trim, which adds an extra level of luxury.

On top of these changes, the Maxima now comes with more tech features. Every trim gets an eight-inch touchscreen as standard that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Standard safety features include a front collision system, automatic emergency braking, Nissan's rear door alert, and a driver alert warning. Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of technologies – which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic emergency braking, and automatic high beams – is standard on the Platinum trim and available on the SR as an option.

With all of the changes, it shouldn't come as a surprise to hear that pricing for the Maxima has increased for 2019. Pricing for the entry-level Maxima S starts at $34,845 (including destination), which is $530 more than last year. Jumping up to the SV trim costs $36,855, which is $540 more. The mid-level SL is now priced at $39,335, which is an increase of $600 from last year. At $40,425, the SR trim is now $850 more expensive than last year, and is the model that sees the highest price increase. Pricing for the range-topping Platinum starts at $42,335, an increase of $350 from 2018.
