Looking for a luxury sedan without the luxury price? Behind the wheel of the 2017 Nissan Maxima, consumers are awarded refinement, style and excitement. For a family sedan that raises the bar, the 2017 Nissan Maxima is the one.
It's easy to remember the 2017 Nissan Maxima, just remember the number five – five-passenger seating and five trim levels.
No matter which trim is chosen the Maxima features luxury content, like leather upholstery, keyless ignition and entry, automatic wipers, and 360-degree parking camera system. The SR model is the most exciting choice for those seeking some sporty fun. The SR rides on 19-inch wheels and features sport-tuned suspension and paddle shifters that engage simulated gear ratios. It's also equipped with LED headlights, heated and ventilated front seats, and special interior trim.
For those who want to add a bit more edge to the sporty SR trim, the Midnight Edition package is an optional add-on must. This package equips the Maxima SR with a sporty rear spoiler, rear diffuser and attractive gloss black wheels.
Consumers are also intrigued by the Maxima SR's Active Ride Control and Active Trace Control braking systems. Active Ride Control uses the brakes in order to eliminate body motion over bumps to create a smooth ride, while Active Trace Control uses targeted braking to keep the Maxima on its intended path. Also working in the SR's favor is its active engine braking that helps slow the Maxima down when aggressively heading into corners or when approaching a stop.
The Nissan Maxima has been a popular family sedan for some time due to its ability to make driving fun. Now, sitting in the driver's seat just got even better in the Maxima with its 2017 powertrain that boasts increased acceleration and speed. Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Maxima shows off 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) comes standard. Consumers enjoy the 2017 Maxima's peppy power that zips from zero to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds – a quicker-than-average time for a midsize sedan with a V6 engine.
Safety is a must, which is why Nissan strives to produce vehicles that will protect their consumers. For optimal safety, the 2017 Maxima is one of Nissan's best. It's equipped with a great list of safety features, like a blind-spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision mitigation system with automatic braking. Consumers who splurge on the top Platinum trim get even more high-tech features, including:
Along with high-tech content that helps increase safety, the 2017 Maxima also proves its safeness with impressive crash test scores. In government crash testing, the Maxima scored top marks in all categories, including:
