Inside, the Maxima SR Midnight is equipped with Charcoal premium leather seats with diamond-quilted Alcantara suede inserts. The price tag is $41,230, including the $825 destination charge.
An enhancement of the standard Maxima SR, the SR Midnight features a sport-tuned suspension, front performance chassis damper, and an Integrated Dynamics-control Module that equips the car with Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking, and Active Ride Control technologies. A Drive Mode Selector provides access to Sport and Manual driving modes, and the Maxima SR Midnight features transmission paddle shifters.
Illuminating the path forward after dark, LED headlights are standard. Inside, the SR Midnight has heated and ventilated front seats, premium leather steering wheel with Alcantara inserts, aluminum pedals, and Liquid Chrome interior trim.
