2016 NISSAN MAXIMA
PERFORMANCE IS A FOUR-DOOR WORD
When we unveiled our Sports Sedan Concept last year, it raised both eyebrows and expectations.
The press and public alike were blown away, but they were also a bit skeptical. Would the final product
deliver on the vision? Would we actually build this jetfighter-esque concept?
Well, it's official: we built it.
300-HP 3.5L V6 engine
Under the hood lies the beating heart: Nissan's legendary VQ V6 engine. From sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, to the high-flow tuned induction system, more than 60% of the engine's components have been
re-designed for the all-new Maxima. It even borrows some performance technology from the mighty GT-R®. This 300HP powerhouse exhilarates from idle to redline.
All-New Xtronic CVT
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.
Lower, lighter, and tighter,
Maxima is engineered to not only take corners, but own them. An
all-new rear suspension features monotube dampers-the kind of component you'd usually only find in high-end sports cars. With higher torsional rigidity Maxima SR takes handling to another level.
THE 4-DOOR SPORTS CAR IS BACK
It challenges every conventional notion of what a 4-door sedan is. With 300 horsepower,
a performance tuned suspension, a luxurious driver's cockpit loaded with technology,
striking aerodynamic styling, and a Sport Mode setting that'll get your
heart racing, it really isn't a sedan after all.
It's the 4-Door Sports Car.

THE ART OF FLIGHT
To design a sports-car built to fly, Nissan designers took inspiration from the modern day fighter jet. The cockpit design is echoed in the wrap-around design of the Maxima's. Externally, Maxima is lowered, sculpted, and streamlined to achieve a sweeping aerodynamic profile that has more than a little jet fighter to it. To bring all this inspiration to life, a special metal stamping technique was developed, adding the distinctive fighter-jet sweep to its body line and deeply scalloped doors
FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELTS
Inspired by the layout of a modern fighter jet, Maxima surrounds you in its luxurious, yet functional cockpit.
A deeply bolstered sport seat helps keep you in place, the tall, angled center stack envelopes you and delivers
all necessary information clearly and concisely, and every button, switch, and dial is exactly where you need it.
- 7° Center Console Tilt
Maxima is a driver-focused car, so we rotated the center console 7° to focus on the driver. Inspired by the GT-R® cockpit, this subtle shift perfectly positions every button, knob, dial and display toward the driver for immediate, intuitive information and command.
- Display Commander
Standard on the all-new Maxima, the Display Commander[*] is designed to make control of your NissanConnectSM[*] system simpler and more intuitive. Positioned just behind the gearshift, it lets you toggle up and down,
side-to-side, rotate, scroll through, and
control your infotainment system, without the need to look down or touch the display screen.
- Zero Gravity Seating With Available
Maxima's premium sport-styled front seats feature available diamond-quilted leather inserts, or you can opt for luxurious Alcantara inserts, a material usually seen only in the highest of high-end performance cars. They
also take advantage of Nissan's innovative Zero Gravity design, which provides a natural, neutral seating position that helps to both take pressure off your lower back and reduce fatigue.
MEET YOUR NEW ENTOURAGE
NissanConnectSM Services powered by SiriusXM®
NissanConnectSM[*] Services is a suite of high-tech, vehicle-centric features designed to connect your world to
your car. Debuting on the all-new Maxima, this navigation/infotainment system works through your smartphone
and the embedded telematics control unit to make your life easier in ways you might never have thought possible.
CURVE YOUR ENTHUSIASM
A true sports car is about a lot more than power-it's about how that power combines with the suspension and handling. To ensure you get your daily
dose of G-force-induced endorphins, Maxima® SR combines its power with
an exclusive sport-tuned suspension, increased torsional rigidity, and the advanced technology of the exclusive Integrated Dynamics-Control Module (IDM).
