Sometimes it’s not a bad idea to borrow from a supercar, especially if its performance and not trunk space we’re talking about. The almighty GT-R shares some of its performance technology with the Nissan Altima, boosting horsepower to 300 and enabling it to rocket off 0-60 in just 6.1 seconds.
The latest trim level to be introduced to the Maxima is the stealthy SR Midnight that adds 19-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels, black sport spoiler and black rear diffuser. In total there are six trim levels for the Nissan Maxima that are as follows: S, SV, SL, SR, SR Midnight, Platinum.
Stay connected to the music, contacts, and media that you love. Nissan’s infotainment system, NissanConnect now also allows for iPhone users to sync their phone and Maxima through Apple CarPlay. The convenience of a platform that you use on a daily basis helps to make for a more connected and less distracted driving experience.
One of the biggest roadblocks to buying a sports car, second to price, is practicality. For those with a family, live in a state with all four seasons, or want a reasonable amount of storage and passenger space, a sports car is going to be more problems than it’s worth. As a four-door sports car, the 2016 Nissan Maxima is one of the most energetic and thoroughly enjoyable daily drivers.
A bit of an oxymoron, the Maxima is an affordable luxury mid-size car that has achieved a number of awards that drivers might seriously want to take into consideration when shopping around for a new sedan. For one, the Maxima was named one of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors for 2016 as well as one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2016.
Bridling all 300 horses of the 2016 Maxima is easy to do because it’s such an energetic and responsive sedan.The dynamic handling of the Nissan Maxima is attributed to the independent subframe-mounted strut/coil spring design in the front; helping to balance things out is the rear independent multi-link double wishbone design and the ZF Sachs dampers.
We could describe the cushioning support of the Maxima’s sport-styled heated/cooled Zero Gravity front seats, but instead we’d rather just welcome you here to Jack Ingram Nissan to take the 2016 Nissan Maxima for a test drive. It’s a driver-focused car that places every button, knob, and bit of technology perfectly within reach of your fingertips that no words can truly do it justice.
