Nissan Intelligent Mobility
Behind the wheel of the 2020 Maxima, you’ll feel a greater sense of confidence and control thanks to the automaker’s innovative standard Safety Shield® 360, a suite of driver assist technologies designed to alert you to dangers surrounding your vehicle. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection will engage the brakes when necessary to help avoid or minimize a frontal impact, while Rear Automatic Braking and Rear Cross Traffic Alert monitor possible problems behind you. Blind Spot Monitoring reveals issues in your blind spot, and Lane Departure Warning helps to keep you safely in your lane. High Beam Assist automatically adjusts lighting levels as to not impair other drivers at night. Driver fatigue is closely checked by the Intelligent Driver Alertness system and serves as a vital reminder that driving breaks are necessary for your safety.
Sports car performance
The 2020 Nissan Maxima not only looks like a sports car; it performs like one, too. Powered by the 3.5-liter VQ V6 engine paired to the automaker’s next-generation Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission, the 2020 Maxima thunders over the road with the power of 300 horses and responsive torque rating of 261 lb-ft. More impressive, though, is the Maxima’s fuel efficiency ratings of 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.* You can customize your driving experience with the Drive Mode Selector, which offers two driving modes, Normal and Sport.

The Bluetooth® hands-free phone system and the Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant allow you to reach out to your office, friends or family without taking your hands off the wheel. For concert-level quality sound, opt for the available Bose® Premium Audio System complete with 11 speakers.
The exterior of the 2020 Nissan Maxima is unmistakable thanks to signature elements such as boomerang headlights, LED taillights, a quad-tipped exhaust finisher and a “floating” roof. The sleek four-door car is grounded by lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels.
The luxurious cabin of the 2020 Nissan Maxima elevates your comfort on the road with features such as available climate-controlled front seats and zero gravity front seats with 3D bolsters. The dual-zone automatic temperature control helps keep everyone comfortable while Rear Door Alert serves as a vital reminder to look in the back seat before leaving the vehicle.
