The Maxima has always been Nissan’s luxury leader thanks to its family-oriented features and equipment, however, a too familiar resume and a rather conservative resume similar to that of the Altima has made it a tough sell in its class especially with the recent growth in the number of fresh and newer vehicles in the midsize family segment. Nissan, nonetheless, hopes the Nissan Maxima redesign will help alleviate some of the drawbacks.

Indeed, Nissan has offered the Maxima with several changes and updates that are meant to reinvigorate it. The infotainment system, for instance, is sleek and offers a faster response time than the existing model. Aerodynamics have also been spruced up with the newest model sitting 1.3” lower and 2.2” longer than the previous model. Furthermore, Nissan says the Nissan Maxima 2017 has a lightweight body thanks to clever engineering and use of lightweight materials during construction. The result is a fuel efficient vehicle that has improved handling and steering precision.

The cabin upholstery is upscale and extravagantly offered with some of the latest technologies. All this will, of course, cost you an extra but even sticking with the basic iterations will offer you value for the money.
