Nissan Maxima Summary

In its five generations of production for North America, the Nissan Maxima has built a reputation as a sedan with a perfect blend of luxury, solid engineering and performance. The latest generation’s 3.5 L V6 engine, combined with a luxurious interior and long list of easy-to-use tech features, will keep it at the top of its class.
