2016 Nissan Maxima
If you’re a fan of the Nissan Maxima, you may be wondering why it didn’t have a new model for the 2015 lineup year. No, it didn’t disappear forever! Nissan just decided to take a one-year hiatus in order to rethink the Maxima in hopes of really knocking consumers’ socks off in 2016. Well, get ready to buy more socks because the 2016 Maxima will blow them off completely! If you’re in the market for an exciting family sedan, the 2016 Maxima is the optimal choice. Here’s a closer look.
Three main things happened to the Maxima this year: increased aerodynamics, stronger power, and weight loss. Intrigued? We thought you might be! The 2016 Maxima now sits 2.2 inches longer, 1.3 inches lower, and shows off an overall much sleeker physique; its structural rigidity has also increased. Under the hood of the new Maxima, there is a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This powertrain is definitely a win-win in power and fuel economy. It creates more horsepower for increased driver engagement and an overall more exciting time on the road. And what’s even more impressive about the Maxima’s new engine is that even though it produces extra horsepower, it actually uses less fuel than expected. Over all, all of these improvements have led to the Maxima boasting sleeker styling, enhanced aerodynamics, and overall better efficiency and handling.
The Sporty Maxima SR
While the 2016 Maxima shows off a lineup with a total of five trim levels, one that truly coincides with the Maxima’s new vibe is the SR. The SR is the most exciting behind the wheel with sport-tuned suspension and unique driving systems. It houses Nissan’s Active Ride Control, which uses the brakes to absorb body motions over bumps, and Active Trace Control, which uses targeted braking to keep the vehicle on its intended path. It also features active engine braking in order to help sow the car when heading aggressively into corners or when approaching a stop. Along with cool systems like these, the SR sports upscale content like LED headlights, premium leather upholstery, and heated and ventilated front seats.
You’ll also love the technology found in the SR, such as its eight-inch touchscreen interface with smartphone integration, navigation, rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, two USB ports, and eight-speaker sound system with six-CD changer and satellite and HD radio.
