Forget everything you ever knew, and everything you ever heard, about Continuously Variable Transmissions. Completely re-engineered for both enthusiast and economist, Maxima’s all-new CVT features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. The result: more distinctive shift points, a more connected, spirited driving experience, and increased fuel economy.
Shift Maxima’s Drive Mode Selector into Sport and it’s like kicking in the afterburners. Throttle response gets sharper, steering gets heavier, shifts get quicker, and the engine growl becomes a roar. Switch back to Normal Mode and super-sonic gives way to super-smooth, super-refined, and surprisingly fuel-efficient.
Up front, the boomerang-shaped headlights feature a captivating LED signature line that stays illuminated at all times. In back, LEDs also accent the wraparound taillights, and “4DSC” is embossed in the lamp housings, front and rear—a subtle reminder of what the new Maxima is all about.
If someone – let’s just say, oh I don’t know, maybe one of your kids – is a little heavy on the gas pedal, NissanConnectSM Services will send you a text, email, or even call you if your Maxima® exceeds a preset speed limit.
Zero Gravity Front Seats
Maxima’s sport-styled front seats are bolstered at just the right width and height to conform to your body and keep you in place even during high-G cornering.
Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control
There are few things worse than getting into a cold car on a frigid winter morning, or into a sweltering car on a summer afternoon. With Remote Engine Start, you can use your smartphone to heat up or cool down your Maxima to the comfortable temperature it was when you left it.
Nissan Advanced Drive-Assist® Display
Maxima’s cutting-edge technology connects you to your ride, and the road, like no other sports sedan. The standard 8” multi-touch control screen and the 7” Advanced Drive-Assist® Display keep key information as close as a glance. A standard navigation system guides you to where you want to go, and with navigation “Swipe to Meter”, you can even send map directions from one screen to the other with just a swipe. Standard NissanConnectSM, standard Bluetooth®hands-free communications, an available Bose® Premium Audio system, turn-by-turn navigation—the list goes on. And of course, the Display Commander is there, letting you dial it all in from a single, central location.
Automatic Collision Notification
In the event of an accident that causes your Nissan’s air bags to deploy, this feature will connect you—through a hands-free voice call—to a live Response Specialist who can dispatch emergency services if needed.
Stolen Vehicle Locator
Vehicle theft, unfortunately, does occasionally happen. Some creep could conceivably steal your Maxima. With the Stolen Vehicle Locator, the boys in blue can locate and, ideally, recover it for you.
