2014 Nissan Maxima Overview

The 2014 Nissan Maxima is extremely sleek. The Maxima mimics the design cues of sports cars, and its comfort and driving experience surpass many sportier competitors. This combination creates a unique vehicle that pairs the style of a sports car and the cabin comforts of a semi-luxury car.

As a whole, the Maxima remained relatively unchanged for 2014. Instead of a refresh, Nissan developed a new S Value Package for the Nissan Maxima. With the Altima taking on the more practical midsized car segment, Nissan positioned the Maxima as a sportier sedan.

2014 Nissan Maxima History

  • The 2014 Nissan Maxima closes out the seventh generation of Maxima models.
  • The seventh generation was introduced in 2009; the Maxima has remained relatively unchanged throughout this time.
  • Nissan's flagship sedan entered the 2014 model year with a new S Value Package. It had all the standard features, and the SV gained the Monitor package.
  • This 2014 Maxima is also available in two new colors: Gun Metallic and Midnight Garnet.

How It Drives

The 2014 Nissan Maxima's steering is extremely crisp. It handles well for a car its size and feels smooth and powerful around turns. It also has excellent steering and simple-to-use tech features that make the Maxima a pleasure to drive. It may not be the quietest vehicle on the road, but its suspension ensures a firm and stable ride.

Used 2014 Nissan Maxima Value

Over the years, Nissan has worked hard to craft a family sedan suitable for drivers with a need for speed. If you're shopping for a family sedan that has a few creature comforts for driving solo, the 2014 Nissan Maxima must be considered.

The 2014 Nissan Maxima straddles the line between family sedans and more expensive luxury sedans. It's extremely stylish, but not nearly as sporty as its exterior implies. It's understated, yet the features are high-quality and the driving feels sharp. In fact, the standard Maxima S model is loaded with conveniences and optional extras. The continuously variable transmission (CVT), standard on all vehicles, also makes for a smooth ride. Stepping up to the Maxima SV model, however, will create a more desirable vehicle overall and make it worth considering over other large sedans like the Hyundai Azera or the Toyota Avalon.

Design & Performance

It's a challenge to make a front-wheel drive sedan reasonably sporty, but the Maxima was designed to accomplish just that. It has a sleek and stylish exterior, ensuring visibility on the road and jealousy in the driveway. The Maxima is offered in two trim levels new to this model year, the Nissan Maxima S and the Nissan Maxima SV. Both trim levels are equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine.

  • The 2014 Nissan Maxima S is built with the S Value Package. It includes new headlights, an 18-inch wheelbase, fog lights, integrated turn signals, and other trim features.
  • The 2014 Nissan Maxima SV model, as the higher trim level, has a lot more to offer. It gains USB connectivity, a rearview camera, and the Monitor feature package as a standard.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2014 Nissan Maxima's 3.5L V6 engine is standard across all trim levels. Though it doesn't drive quite as sportily as it's marketed, the front-wheel drive sedan has respectable acceleration capabilities - the Maxima can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. The engine is paired with a CVT that ensures smooth and controlled highway cruising. Additionally, the CVT has a manual sport mode to help drivers easily access high-performance driving capabilities.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Nissan Maxima has managed to stay relatively graceful in terms of design. It has retained the same sporty exterior since 2009. It's surprisingly comfortable, too - its suspension ensures passengers feel stable on the road.

  • The gauges are simple and useful.
  • The Maxima SV has a seven-inch touchscreen in the center console.
  • The standard 18-inch wheels can be replaced with 19-inch wheels.
  • The moonroof available on all Maxima models can be upgraded to a dual-panel panoramic moonroof.
  • The Maxima seats five adults comfortably; however, tall adults may find the headroom a bit tight.
