Nissan has long positioned the Maxima as a “four-door sports car” – and while that term might sound silly to some drivers, the description certainly fits the bill. Hidden under its sedan strappings is the heart of a sports car, promising incredible on-road performance and solid engine power that’s well-balanced with creature comforts and conveniences.
Take one look and you’ll quickly see what we mean. Anchoring the 2018 Maxima SV is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that pushes out 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque. Paired to a front-wheel drivetrain with a continuously variable automatic transmission, you’ll go from zero to 60 mph in a slick 6.1 seconds. On the road, the Maxima hugs corners and dives into turns, providing above-average handling for the segment, as well as reactive steering that's supported by a stability control system.
Inside the cabin, everything about the SV trim is lush and plush from its leather upholstery to the upgraded driver’s seat with extendable thigh supports and two-way power lumbar adjustments. This model is also equipped with front and rear parking sensors, along with a navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for your convenience. Premium sound fills the interior, as well, thanks to the eight-speaker sound system with satellite radio and a CD player.
