It challenges every conventional notion of what a 4-door sedan is. With 300 horsepower, a performance tuned suspension, a luxurious driver’s cockpit loaded with technology, striking aerodynamic styling, and a Sport Mode setting that’ll get your heart racing, it really isn’t a sedan after all. It’s the 4-Door Sports Car.
Maxima’s premium sport-styled front seats feature available diamond-quilted leather inserts, a material usually seen only in the highest of high-end performance cars. Maxima’s sport-styled front seats are bolstered at just the right width and height to conform to your body and keep you in place even during high-G cornering.
Under the hood lies the beating heart: Nissan’s legendary VQ V6 engine. From sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, to the high-flow tuned induction system, more than 60% of the engine’s components have been re-designed for the new Maxima. It even borrows some performance technology from the mighty GT-R®. This 300HP powerhouse exhilarates from idle to redline.
Maxima is a driver-focused car, so we rotated the center console 7° to focus on the driver. Inspired by the GT-R® cockpit, this subtle shift perfectly positions every button, knob, dial and display toward the driver for immediate, intuitive information and command.
Active Trace Control (ATC), Active Engine Brake (AEB), Active Ride Control (ARC).
ACTIVE TRACE CONTROL
Active Trace Control automatically optimizes your line through turns by precisely applying the inner or outer brakes.
ACTIVE ENGINE BRAKING
Active Engine Braking automatically downshifts the CVT when under braking, slowing your Maxima with less effort while readying the gears to power you out of an apex.
ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL
Active Ride Control reacts automatically when Maxima is unexpectedly jolted by a bump in the road. It subtly applies the brakes to level the chassis, helping to keep the ride controlled and comfortable.
