2018 Nissan Maxima

Introducing the 2018 Nissan Maxima

Nissan embraces the idea that driving should be a pleasure and not a chore. They have injected the perfect mixture of exhilaration and luxury into the 2018 Nissan Maxima, creating a four-door sports car that can make you smile with every press of the accelerator. 

Sleek and Sculpted

From front to back, the Maxima looks good no matter how you look at it. It features a sporty and aggressive front fascia that can be intimidating when the driver ahead of you sees it in their rearview mirror. LED daytime running lights accentuate the Intelligent Auto Headlights and add extra flair to the design. Standard fog lights help you see what is around the next corner. Sleek body lines make their way from the front of the car over the hood and fenders, and flow effortlessly along the side to create a stylish profile.  It comes to a finish in the back with a floating roofline, taillights with an LED signature, and a dual exhaust with rolled chrome-tipped finishers.

Luxury Level Interior

The interior of the Maxima is just as impressive as the exterior, if not more so. No matter if you choose a base trim or the top of the line Platinum trim, the cabin is filled with high-quality materials, luxurious details, and premium fit and finish.  There is comfortable seating for five with generous leg and headroom. Invitingly plush seats are designed to respond to pressure points to help prevent fatigue for all-day driving. High-quality cloth seats with accent stitching comes standard with S trim, and all other trims come with heated leather seats. For even more extravagance, SR and Platinum trims receive premium Ascot Leather seats with diamond-quilted Alcantara (SR) or leather (Platinum) inserts and heated and vented front seats. The Maxima can even provide a prime view with the available dual-panel panoramic moonroof. 

Top-Notch Tech

Not only does the Maxima offer style and comfort, it also hosts a number of impressive features too. You can make sure your Maxima is at a comfortable temperature before you get in, no matter the season, with the standard remote engine start system with intelligent climate control. A drivers-centric interior places controls ergonomically for the driver for natural, easy access. The center console is also angled seven degrees towards the driver for a better view of the infotainment system's 8-inch touchscreen display, which comes standard on all Maxima's. With the infotainment system, you will have seamless connectivity with Bluetooth connection, Apple Carplay, Android Audio, and GPS navigation.  Thanks to intuitive multi-touch controls, you can easily tap, pinch, and swipe through infotainment screens and options. The infotainment system can also be controlled with the display commander dial at the base of the center console, through the steering wheel controls, and even through voice prompts. 

A Grin-Inducing Drive  

With decades of racing history, Nissan knows how to make a fast car with superb handling, and they have applied this knowledge into the 2018 Maxima. They have created a car with 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque that can push you deeply into the seat when called upon. Not only is the engine powerful, but it is efficient too, producing an estimated 30 highway MPG.* The impressive fuel mileage numbers are possible thanks to the engine being paired with the Next-Generation Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). 

You can choose your driving experience with the Drive Mode Selector. In normal mode, the vehicle-speed-sensitive steering makes it easy to maneuver around town while the engine and transmission work together in a perfect harmony to provide you with an ultra-smooth ride and remarkable fuel economy. Select sport mode to unlock the full four-door sports car experience. When sport mode has been selected, it sharpens throttle response, tightens steering feel, and adjusts for more aggressive transmission tuning. This will have you craving curvy roads and grinning with every press of the gas pedal.

Safety is Key

Nissan has engineered the Maxima to keep you and your passengers safe. Not only has it been designed and equipped with many safety features to achieve top safety ratings from NHTSA and IIHS, they have also made available the latest in technology to help prevent an accident in the first place. These features include:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Braking - Monitors your speed and senses the proximity to the vehicle ahead of you, as well as the vehicle ahead of them. A warning is provided if you need to slow down and it can also apply braking if you fail to respond. The system will also apply the brakes if a collision is unavoidable, helping to reduce the impact
  • Blind Spot Warnings - Detect the presence of vehicles to the side of the Maxima using radar. Warning indicators alert you if the system detects a vehicle to help you during lane changes. 
  • Cross Traffic Monitor - Sensors detect vehicles approaching from either side when you are backing up and provides a warning.
