2019 Nissan Maxima and Murano get subtle refresh
Nissan is updating its lineup for 2019, as two models receive facelifts — the 2019 Nissan Maxima, and the 2019 Nissan Murano.
Nissan’s flagship four-door sedan, the 2019 Nissan Maxima, gets improved looks and more safety features. For starters, there are the 19-inch “Hyper Silver” wheels standard on the range-topping Platinum Reserve model and new alloy wheel designs across the range. There is a new body colour as well, called Sunset Drift.
Inside the Maxima, there are new seat materials and dashboard inserts. The rear seats get heating, which may, obviously, not make it into our market.
Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 driver assist features are offered as an option in the lower trims while the top Platinum and SR Premium Package models come standard with this suite. It includes driver aids like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, high-beam assist and rear automatic braking. The engine of the Maxima remains unchanged for another year.
The changes on the 2019 Nissan Murano is mostly aesthetic and they work well to bring the Murano on the same lines as the other Nissan models. The V-Motion grill gets a good makeover and it gets flanked by redesigned LED headlights. The LED fog lights are new units so is the LED tail lamps. There are three new body colors, Mocha Almond Pearl, Deep Blue Pearl, and Sunset Drift Chromaflair, as well.
Inside the 2019 Murano, not many changes reside. New leather options along with three new interior shades: Dark Wood-Tone, Light Wood-Tone, and Metallic are offered. All 2019 Muranos are equipped with Nissan’s Rear Door Alert and Intelligent Driver Alertness safety systems.
The current generation of the Murano is not offered in the UAE or GCC, but the Maxima should show up in a few months.
