What to Expect in the 2016 Nissan Maxima

During this year's New York International Auto Show, we had the opportunity to
observe the unveiling of the all-new Nissan Maxima sedan -- which has been fully
redesigned for the 2016 model year (1) -- in order to deliver a combination of sleek
design, good performance and luxury appeal. (2)
Available at Ferman Nissan of Tampa, (3) the new Maxima is a four-door (fivepassenger)
full-size sedan that shares its platform with the current Altima model and
features a slightly lowered roof and a longer body. (2) In addition, the 2016 model also
benefits from new exterior styling elements, excellent interior materials and comfort,
several intriguing technologies — and in terms of driving the car, you can expect strong
acceleration and very good handling from this updated model. (4)
Style and Features
According to Forbes, the 2016 Maxima features an expressive exterior design
language, which — in citing Nissan — is called "energetic flow." Those two words are
meant to describe the vehicle's new dramatic style: the 'V-motion' grille, crisp body
lines and "floating roof" treatment, among other details. Overall, it's a visually
appealing look. (2)
Inside, you'll find a comfortable and modern-looking interior that sports goodies such
as an Active Noise Cancellation system that helps to enhance the overall quietness of
the cabin. Or, if you prefer to hear the sound of the engine when in Sport mode,
Edmunds says an Active Sound Enhancement feature is available. (5)
Depending on the model, you'll get a navigation system and an eight-way power driver
seat (S-trim), heated leather front seats (SV), a Bose sound system, panoramic sunroof
(SL) and several active safety technologies, such as blind spot alert, adaptive cruise
control, forward collision warning and rear cross-traffic alert. Rear parking sensors and
Driver Attention Alert (for drowsy motorists) are also among the features offered with
the new 2016 Nissan Maxima. (5)
Power and Performance
Under the hood, you can expect to find a revised 3.5-liter V-6 that will provide you
with a total 300 horses on tap. It's paired to a new Xtronic Continuously Variable
Transmission that incorporates the automaker's "D-Step Programming -- based on
news from Forbes — resulting in less noise from the CVT.

Overall, Nissan's 2016 sedan is a nice improvement over the previous Maxima model.

trim. (5)
