Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Vehicle Overview A larger Maxima arrived in the summer wearing new American-designed sheet metal and powered by a stronger V-6 engine.
The front-wheel-drive Maxima is built from the same design as the Infiniti I30, the most popular model in Nissan's luxury division. The two cars share mechanical components but have different styling.
Interior This year's longer wheelbase pays off in a larger interior, and the extra space is most noticeable in the rear seat, which has ample legroom and adequate headroom for six footers in the outboard positions. The center position is hard and cramped. A split rear seatback that folds for additional cargo space is a new standard feature.
Controls for the climate and stereo systems are large and well marked. The power front windows have new, one-touch up and down operation.
Exterior The wheelbase has grown 2 inches to 108 and overall length is up about an inch to 189. The previous Maxima and I30 shared much of their styling, but the only body panel the new models share is the roof.
