5 reasons to buy the 2022 Nissan Maxima

1. Powerful engine

Taking advantage of lessons learned from Nissan's performance vehicles, the 2022 Nissan Maxima delivers a sporty performance with a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to provide smooth and constant acceleration while maintaining power. If you're looking to maximize the sporty feel, enable Sport Mode for a more engaging driving experience, including increased steering weight and more aggressive shifting under braking.

2. Advanced technology

The 2022 Nissan Maxima comes with a range of standard technology features for a more convenient and enjoyable drive, such as intelligent cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and Intelligent Driver Alertness. Plus, Nissan's suite of driver-assist features includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot warning, and lane departure warning. For hands-free phone and audio streaming, the 2022 Nissan Maxima offers a premium Bose® sound system (standard on all but the base trim), wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot.

3. Luxurious interior

The 2022 Nissan Maxima isn't your typical sedan. This car boasts a performance-luxury style interior with comfortable seating. In the front, you get Nissan's special Zero Gravity seats, which provide exceptional support and comfort during long commutes. The Maxima also offers a standard heated steering wheel, climate control, and active noise cancellation to improve your driving experience and give you a home-away-from-home feel.

4. Comfortable ride

You don't have to sacrifice your comfort for sportiness. The 2022 Nissan Maxima's integrated dynamic-control module system ensures that the brakes and vehicle will smooth out bumps and reduce body motion. That, coupled with hydroelectric power-assisted steering and independent suspension, provides even more of a cushioned ride for passengers—making it more comfortable than other vehicles in its class. Whether you're commuting to work or embarking on a long road trip with little ones, the 2022 Maxima ensures a relaxing journey no matter where you're headed.

5. Sporty design

The 2022 Nissan Maxima's modern and sporty design sets it apart from other sedans in its class. The Maxima features a deep V-motion grille, jewel-like LED headlights, and a floating roofline. The SR trim level adds 19-inch wheels, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof, and a rear spoiler for an even sportier look and feel. Choose from seven available exterior colors: Super Black, Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Deep Blue Pearl, Pearl White TriCoat, Scarlet Ember Tintcoat (red), and Sunset Drift (a rustic orange).
