Nissan Maxima Overview

The Maxima soldiers on mostly unchanged, with a 2016 redesign coming this spring. The highlight of the Maxima is its smooth, powerful 3.5-liter V6 that gives it very quick acceleration and 22 mpg overall, but on premium fuel. The steering is oddly weighted. It's overly light at low speeds, but then firms up rather abruptly, which takes away from the car's handling. The ride is comfortable enough, and the cabin is quiet. A low roofline inhibits rear access and visibility. Controls are simple to use, and the front seats are very comfortable and supportive, but interior materials and rear-seat room aren't as impressive.
