Nissan Maxima SV 2017
Are you looking for full sized luxury sedan vehicle for your family in affordable price than here is what you are looking for. For many years this was known as four door sport car but last two generations of this car are not sporty any more in terms of performance and driving experience but in terms of its looks and interior this is more luxury and sporty. This car was introduced in 1981 as a midsized sedan car from that day there has been seen many major changes in this car even 2016 model has completely re-designed from previous year. There are no significant and visible changes in 2017 and 2016 model roundabout both are alike.
Maxima 2017 is more luxury and Premium vehicle; it is well equipped and builds on same platform as Altima, Path fighter and Murano. It will not be wrong to say that Nissan Maxima is the sedan version of Nissan Murano as it has so many similarities in its exterior and interior.
It is a worthy car that surely match your personality, exterior is so good and design in such enthusiasm way. Starting from front there has been added LED Headlights, LED day time running lights and big bold grill that cover its lot of front.
On side of Maxima there are given 18 inch machined aluminum alloy wheels and chromed door handlers. Side design of car is sportier as you can see its floating roof make it more Gorgeous. It is a full sized luxury sedan so does it rear end look bigger than mid-sized sedans and this make maxima more attractive and clearly has personality.
Dual chrome exhausts are standard in all versions more their added rear spoiler to enhance its external looks.
From driver seat you will come to know if how much this car has grown up if you have driven any of previous Nissan maxima model. The way dashboard is designed surely gives feeling of luxurious sporty vehicle specially the 8 inch infotainment screen embed in way.
Its 8 inch infotainment screen with Nissan connect is easy to use and very intuitive but if I will compare it with some other than Ford new Sink 3 is little better than this. High quality leather material used on seats, steering wheel and gear shift knob, This Nissan Maxima has 7 different versions named (S, SV, SL, SR, SR Midnight, and Platinum) current in Photo is Platinum version where you can see wood trim has been used on door interiors and under the dashboard, like these all other versions can have different design and color scheme.
Engine and Transmission:
Nissan Maxima has been loaded with 3.5 Liter DOHC 24 valve V6 engine that produce 300 horse power and 353 Nm @ 4400 Rpm peak torque. It is not a turbo charged engine but simple v6 whose 61 percent parts are re-designed according to Nissan.
Top speed of Nissan Maxima is 135 Miles per hour where it takes only 5.9 seconds to reach 0-60 miles per hour. It gives fuel economy of 21 miles per gallon within city where 30 miles per gallon on highway. If we count this car in terms of performance than this is not sporty and engineers require lot more work to make it better sporty.
It has same engine and transmission like found in many other cars of Nissan like Murano, Path fighter and altima. It has continuous variable transmission that look more like automatic, there is an issue with the CVT transmission if we take this car as sporty than this transmission is slow to shift at times and couldn’t just keep up.
Maxima is a better luxury full size sedan, it has massive trunk and lot of space inside as well. Its interior is inspired by aerospace technology which is more spacious than previous models, another credit goes to Nissan Engineers that this model is 82 pounds lighter as well. Its front rear seat are more comfortable and supportive, there is lot of space for rear seat passengers without any issue of head and leg room, if you still think this car is not suitable for you than you can go for Nissan Murano that is Mid-sized luxury crossover with similar interior and exterior design. Front seats are 0 gravity heated with 8 way power and lumbar support.
More to make it comfortable and delightful dual pane panoramic sunroof added that was usually seen in high priced luxury vehicles. It also has dual zone climate control again this feature was usually found in expensive high end vehicle but now it can be seen in lot other cars as well.
