So we got a 2016 Nissan Maxima
The Maxima has always been a bit different from the rest of the Nissan line. Touted as a “Four Door Sports Car,” this latest one is more flamboyant than ever.
The exterior styling is as original as it can get for a front-wheel-drive midsize sedan. It makes quite an impact when it rolls up. However, that impact is about to get diluted in the near future, as even the Altima and the Sentra are lined up to get the same front-end treatment by the end of this year.
Inside, it is very premium, enough to rival pricier Infinitis. There’s stitched leatherette, a capacitive touchscreen and what not.
Sharing a platform with the Altima, space inside is decent. The boot is huge.
This new model is Nissan’s best effort after a decade’s worth of lukewarm Maxima generations. More in the full review.
