Vehicle Overview
Nissan's Maxima returns for 2010. The Maxima is offered in two trim levels, 3.5 S and 3.5 SV, both of which have a 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine. As Nissan's flagship sedan, the Maxima competes with cars like the Toyota Avalon and Ford Taurus.

New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.

Boomerang-shaped headlights and a wide grille sit low on the Maxima's front end, and the taillights are also low on the tail. There are few exterior changes because the Maxima was recently redesigned, but they include new finishes on the wheels and two new exterior colors.
  • 18- or 19-inch wheels
  • Optional fog lights

The Maxima's cabin could probably get away with an Infiniti badge. It draws elements from Infiniti's G and M sedans, while the wraparound dash looks much like the one in the Altima. All told, it easily rivals the cabin in a Buick Lucerne, another upscale player in this group.
  • Standard moonroof
  • Standard power-adjustable front seats
  • Standard 60/40-split folding rear seats
  • Standard dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Optional heated seats
  • Optional ventilated driver's seat

Under the Hood
The Maxima's 3.5-liter V-6 makes an estimated 290 hp and 261 pounds-feet of torque. A continuously variable automatic transmission is standard.
  • Sport and manual modes
  • Optional paddle shifters

Safety features include:
  • Standard side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard traction and electronic stability control
