2016 Nissan Maxima

The 8th Generation Maxima Delivers More Intensity

Nissan has always provided cutting edge style, but the new 8th generation Maxima takes it to a whole new level. Starting with an interior inspired by the F/A-18 fighter jets flown by the Blue Angels and other U.S. Navy pilots the 2016 Nissan Maxima combines the ultimate in style and sophistication. The 2016 Nissan Maxima sedan is built to wow even the most discerning car buyer – in fact, count on the new Maxima to compete favorably with comparable BMW, Lexus and other luxury cars.

The Unveil

Nissan unveiled the new Maxima in New York this April and right away everyone noticed that the sedan is almost as sporty as the Sport Sedan concept that made such a big splash at last year’s New York auto show. So, what can you expect from the 2016 Maxima? First, it’s a lot like last year’s concept car. The rear window hails back to the classic fastbacks of days gone by, but with a distinctly modern feel. The side panels are sharply creased and the quarter panels and fenders give it a tough look that will appeal to the staunchest car guy while still offering enough luxury and style to appeal to those with more sophisticated taste. The unveiled model also featured a dual panoramic moonroof – an option many Nissan buyers will undoubtedly want to consider.

Of course, looks are important, but what really matters is what’s under the hood. The 2016 Maxima won’t disappoint here, either. The 2016 Maxima will continue to feature a 3.5L 24-valve V6 that Nissan customers have come to expect, albeit with more than half of the engine parts upgraded and replaced. The transmission has been reworked and designed for optimum continuously variable performance. All told, the changes to the powertrain have hiked the horsepower to 300, an improvement over the 290 HP of the 2014 Maxima.

So, how much will it cost to put yourself behind the wheel of a 2016 Maxima? They start at a cool $32,410.

Nissan knows that it’s a challenge to woo BMW, Mercedes, Lexus and other luxury car drivers, but we’re confident that the 2016 Maxima delivers the kind of precision performance, sporty styling and luxury amenities that those who expect the best demand. Let a BMW driver test-drive the new Maxima just once and we’re convinced they’ll be hooked.

So, why is Nissan rolling out a full sized sedan, now of all times? Let’s face it; typical full sized cars have not been the best sellers in recent years. But this is no typical sedan. You have to get behind the wheel to appreciate it, but Nissan is confident – as are we – that those who want a sporty alternative to the luxury car will find what they’re looking for in a 2016 Maxima sedan.

So, what are some of the other changes in this year’s Maxima? Here are a few:

  • Lighter weight steel that drops the weight while improving strength and rigidity at the same time.
  • Heated, flat-bottomed steering wheel.
  • Tilted Nav-screen, giving the driver’s seat a feel reminiscent of a jet fighter cockpit.
  • Improved safety features, including warnings for drowsy driving.
  • Improved interior panels and seating, made to be a step above standard production models, comparable with luxury brands.

The Maxima has long been one of the most popular Nissans. Look for the new 2016 Nissan Maxima to raise the bar and set entirely new standards for our brand.
