Its basically a front wheel drive version of a G37 with out the cost. The car accelerates smoothy with the CVT transmission, and if you want a more sport feel you can shift the car into manual mode and it will give you a virtual 6spd gear box. The BOSE Stereo system is amazing as is anything tuned by BOSE. The Navigation system is easy to program and very intuitive to use. Plenty of inputs for auxiliary devices and chargers; memory seats for 2; rear sunshade for comfort of rear passengers; supportive rear buckets for rear passengers, standard with the Sport Pkg.; AC'd drivers seat; heated driver and passenger seat; Panoramic sunroof for great visual feel. Best of all its great to drive with 290hp enough power for real driving and then some.
Aside from being a beautiful looking car I love the way it drives. The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) makes it ride so smooth and you can feel the extra power as soon as you give it gas. I love the keyless start and the interior is very comfortable for long trips.
If you've ever seen the Nissan commercial where the new dad has to trade in his 370Z sports coupe for a family hauler, but still wants to have fun (spoiler: he gets a Maxima), that commercial really rings true with this car. I, myself, am a recent father (one year now) but I still want to have fun in my suburban street pounder. The Maxima is a great fit for that.
With nearly 300 horsepower under the hood coming from Nissan's highly acclaimed and aggressive sounding VQ35 3.5 liter V6 engine, the car's got more than enough going for it to keep the blood flowing at stoplights. Couple that with a suspension that feels agile and athletic, even in the standard version, and you can't wait for the next family errand in it.
