The first Nissan Maxima arrived in North America in 1981. At the time, it was called the Datsun 810 while the Maxima nomenclature was applied to the most luxurious version of the 810 range. Over the years, Datsun became Nissan and the 810 became the Maxima. Today, we are entitled to the 8th generation of Nissan’s top-of-the-line sedan.
Here are three things to know about the 2017 Nissan Maxima.
The 2017 Nissan Maxima is an example of comfort
We start with comfort, because the 2017 Nissan Maxima is not only one of the most comfortable and refined cars in its segment, but it is able to compete with much more expensive models when it comes to quietness and general comfort.
Zero Gravity seats designed to offer maximum support are partly responsible, but also the sound isolation in the cabin to go along with the supple suspension need to be considered in the equation. Traveling long hours on the highway or driving in the city in complete peace will be your daily life with the 2017 Nissan Maxima.
Buyers will definitely appreciate the quality of the cockpit and the space offered inside as well. Indeed, the new 2017 Nissan Maxima offers a lot of leg and head room both in the front and in the back while the trunk offers up to 405 liters of cargo space.
It is powerful, but also fuel-efficient
Sold starting at $ 34,400, the new 2017 Nissan Maxima is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine developing 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. The power is sent to the front wheels through a continuous variable automatic transmission that not only performs very well, but also achieves a very reasonable fuel consumption rating of less than 8.0 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
It offers a lot of standard equipment
The new 2017 Nissan Maxima is not only powerful and comfortable, it is also very well equipped. Available in five versions, it comes standard with the NissanConnect navigation system, an 8-inch center screen, 18-inch wheels, heated seats and a rear-view camera.
Leather seats are available from the SV model available starting at $ 36,560, as are the front and rear parking sensors.
