The 2018 Nissan Maxima is powered by a standard 3.5L V6 engine generating 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque. It's a potent engine that offers strong acceleration and overall performance that helps make the Maxima feel sporty. According to manufacturer's claims, it goes from zero to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds and can reach a top speed of 133 mph. With this type of athletic behavior, the 2018 Nissan Maxima is a great choice if you're looking for a spacious vehicle that is also exciting to drive.
Another factor that sets the 2018 Nissan Maxima apart is the level of equipment that comes as standard on all trims. The base Maxima S model includes lots of tech features, which you can often only find on top-level trims with other cars from the same model year. The dual-zone automatic climate control and adjustable driving modes are just two of those features, making every ride as comfortable as possible for all passengers. An infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration contributes to this as well, along with the navigation system and the eight-speaker audio system.
Inside the 2018 Nissan Maxima, you will find a welcoming and refined environment with room for five and pretty much all the amenities you need for a pleasant ride. The seats are roomy and comfortable, with 39.4 inches of front headroom and 36.7 inches of rear headroom. If you want to stretch out, front legroom measures 45 inches with rear legroom at 34.2 inches. An eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat is standard, along with a four-way power-adjustable passenger seat. You can also look forward to the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob as part of the standard equipment.
The great performance and upscale interior of the 2018 Nissan Maxima are complemented by its attractive exterior. It's a good-looking car that breaks the midsize sedan mold, with the large "V-shape" front grille as one of its most distinctive features. This is accompanied by a raised hood rounding out the aggressive, athletic front end. The boomerang-shaped headlights are another eye-catching feature, while the creases along the front and rear fenders give the Maxima a nice rounded look.
For a car that's powered by a 300-hp V6 engine, the 2018 Nissan Maxima gets great gas mileage. With this engine, which is paired with a continuously variable automatic (CVT) transmission, the 2018 Nissan Maxima gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined.
