What's New for the 2018 Nissan Maxima?

This year, Nissan is kicking things up a notch for the Maxima. All models now come standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, so you can enjoy maximum smartphone integration, no matter what kind of phone you have. Later in the model year, you'll find the SR Midnight Edition out on the lot. Its handsome exterior styling elements, including blacked-out wheels, are designed to turn heads. Last year, the Maxima made forward collision mitigation technology standard for all models, so these sedans can automatically apply the brakes when they sense immediate danger.

Five Great Trims to Choose From

With five trim models to choose from, there's a Nissan Maxima for every kind of buyer. Check out the base S, mid-grade SV, stylish SL, sporty SR, and richly appointed Platinum to discover which is right for you. The base S is nicely equipped, with conveniences like an auto-dimming mirror and keyless entry and ignition to get you through the day as smoothly as possible. In the mid-range SV, you'll find a whole new level of comfort, with features that luxury-minded shoppers crave, like leather upholstery and heated front seats. In fact, if you're looking for the high-end style that the Maxima is known for, the SV is a great place to start. Next up is the SL, which has a modernizing effect, enhancing your ride with 12-speaker Bose premium audio and a dual-panel sunroof. In the athletic SR, you'll zoom to work in confidence, thanks to the sport-tuned suspension and column-mounted paddle shifters. In the top-trim Platinum, you can combine the SR's sporty performance with additional luxury features, such as upgraded leather upholstery and ventilated front seats. The Platinum is an excellent choice for drivers who crave all the class of a European luxury sedan without having to face an impossibly steep price tag.

Powerful Engine

Under the hood, the 3.5-liter V6 engine kicks out 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque, assailing you with the power you require for premium speed. And, in addition to world-class power and performance, the Maxima also feels smooth and controlled on the road. It certainly gives European luxury cars a run for their money - and does so without breaking your budget.

Modern Safety Technology

2018 Nissan Maxima RearBeginning with the 2017 model year, the Nissan introduced standard forward collision mitigation. That means that every single Maxima will automatically apply the brakes when it senses an oncoming crash. A rearview camera is also standard equipment; it gives you greater visibility as you pull out of a tight spot. Starting with the Maxima SL, you'll enjoy blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, which is helpful in heavy highway traffic, giving you a better understanding of your surroundings. When you upgrade to the Platinum model, NissanConnect emergency telematics help you solve unexpected problems. This technology includes automatic collision notification and emergency roadside assistance, providing you with the help you need in a pinch. The Maxima Platinum also introduces a 360-degree camera system. It's the perfect parallel-parking assistant, giving you a top-down look at your sedan as you pull into the last space on the block.
