Vehicle Profile: 2019 Nissan Maxima
A sedan that’s as safe and smooth as it is suave
Conquer the road and look great while doing it when you get behind the wheel of the 2019 Nissan Maxima. Refreshed for the model year, this sedan delivers the energetic response you demand with the comfortable interior and modern safety tech you crave.
A 3.5-liter V6 engine under the hood churns out a healthy 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with the brand’s XTRONIC CVT® for enhanced performance. This translates to smoother gear shifts and acceleration, as well as a 15-percent improvement in fuel economy.* Its poised handling makes it feel more agile than other rivals in the large-sedan segment.
Luxurious and convenient details
The Maxima includes the latest comforts and conveniences to make each drive more pleasant. Choose the SV trim or higher to enjoy heated front seats and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, as well as leather-appointed seating. Heated outside mirrors means that you won’t have to spend time de-icing these surfaces before driving in wintery conditions. The SL trim includes a heated steering wheel and a power-liftable front passenger’s seat. Higher trims offer available perks such as the 11-speaker Bose® Premium Audio System and NissanConnect® Services powered by SiriusXM®.
Progressive safety tech
The automaker’s commitment to passenger safety is evident in the 2019 Maxima’s multi-layered defenses. It incorporates zone-body construction with front and rear crumple zones that will absorb the impact of a collision. Thanks to Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control System, you can maintain steering precision and enjoy reduced wheelspin when traveling on slippery roads. Each model also includes Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which will alert you to obstacles up ahead that you might not have noticed.
The Maxima also makes driving with young passengers less stressful. The LATCH System makes it easy to install a car seat, so you can spend more time actually driving than preparing to drive. In addition, the brand’s exclusive Rear Door Alert uses door sensors to activate the horn and display an instrument-panel message, reminding you to check the back seat after you park the car.
If you want a sedan that touches all of the bases, the 2019 Nissan Maxima aims to please. Whether you’re single or have children, you’re bound to fall in love with this well-rounded living room on wheels.
