2013 Nissan Maxima 4.4 11
$ 13,747-24,903
August 23, 2012
Vehicle Overview

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. The five-seat Maxima serves as Nissan's flagship sedan and competes with cars like the Dodge Charger and Ford Taurus.
New for 2013
A number of new option packages are offered. There's an SV Value Package that includes a Bose stereo, satellite radio, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and heated side mirrors. A Bose Audio Package includes just the stereo and satellite radio. The Sport Package, meanwhile, gains a 7-inch color screen with a backup camera, USB and iPod inputs, a climate-controlled driver's seat, and a dark-silver finish for the 19-inch alloy wheels.
Boomerang-shaped headlights and a rectangular grille sit low on the Maxima's front end, and the taillights are also mounted low. Nissan describes the Maxima's styling as "liquid motion," similar to the undulations of a wave. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Available 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Standard power moonroof
  • Optional dual-panel panoramic moonroof
  • Optional xenon headlights
  • Optional rear spoiler

The Maxima's upscale cabin could probably get away with an Infiniti badge. It draws elements from Infiniti's G and M sedans, and all told, it easily rivals the cabin in a Ford Taurus, another player in its segment. Interior features include:

  • Standard power front seats
  • Standard 60/40-split folding backseat
  • Standard dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Optional heated and ventilated front seats
  • Optional heated steering wheel
  • Optional Bose premium stereo

Under the Hood
The Maxima's 3.5-liter V-6 makes 290 hp and 261 pounds-feet of torque and requires premium gas. A continuously variable automatic transmission is standard. Mechanical features include:

  • Sport and manual modes
  • Optional shift paddles
  • Optional sport suspension

Safety features include:

  • Side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system with traction control
  • Active front head restraints
  • Available backup camera
