Nissan Maxima Performance Features

The Nissan Maxima is all new in 2018. The sedan has gotten some unique upgrades that have changed its style and design, as well as performance. The four-cylinder engine has gone away, leading to a base engine that has more power and fuel efficiency compared to many other in its class. While many consider the Maxima to be fun to drive, it's the stable handling and braking, as well as safety features, that made it a top pick in the large car market.

At the base, you'll get a 3.5-liter V6 engine that can put out 300-horsepower. The acceleration is incredible for pickup and merging in lane. With CVT automatic transmission, it's also the smoothest ride yet from Maxima. You can take the highways with ease and still get rather good fuel efficiency as well with up to 30 mpg on the highway.
