Review Video


All 2018 Nissan Maxima models are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. The engine sends power to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). In independent testing, Maxima posted a 0 to 60 time of 6.1 seconds. It employs a number of active performance features to improve handling: Active Ride Control uses the brakes to smooth over bumps in the road; Active Trace Control uses selective braking to keep the vehicle on its intended course; and Active Engine Braking helps slow the car if its rushing headlong into a corner or approaching a stop. Two driving modes, normal and sport, do their job nicely. The brake pedal is firm and confidence-inspiring. Steering is precise.


Maxima features a nice mix of high-quality interior materials and numerous equipment choices. Standard are a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats and a 60/40-split fold rear seat. Mid-level trims add heated front seats, leather upholstery and an upgraded driver seat with extendable thigh support. The top-of-the-line Premium trim adds ventilated front seats that blow cold air rather than re-circulated cabin air and upgraded leather upholstery with quilted suede seat inserts. The presence of sound-reducing glass along with active noise cancellation create a noticeably quiet cabin environment. Those are just the highlights. There are numerous other equipment choices. It should also be noted that both cargo and storage space are above average for the segment.

2018 Nissan Maxima Interior


Among Maxima’s lengthy list of features are remote start, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic wipers and a navigation system. Sensors on each of the four corners of the vehicle use sonar to provides a heads up when it's about to bump into something. Maxima’s infotainment interface is both attractive and easy to use. It makes controlling Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration a breeze. The 12-speaker Bose audio system is music to the ears, and satellite radio allows the driver to select music genres with the touch of a button. Finally, Maxima uses the internet of things to send out automatic collision notifications, make emergency calls, and, if necessary, pinpoint the location of a stolen vehicle.


All 2018 Maximas come standard with six airbags, stability control, anti-lock brakes, a rearview camera, and a forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking. Mid to high trim models add a blind spot monitoring and warning system that sees where the driver’s eyes can’t and warns when it detects a vehicle hiding there. Rear Cross Traffic Alert detects when traffic is about to creep up from behind on either side. Intelligent Cruise Control turns off cruise control when the vehicle is getting to close to one in front of it. To top it off, the 2018 Nissan Maxima gets the highest score possible on both IIHS and NHTSA crash tests.
