2018 Nissan Maxima ratings and reviews
Best described as an entry-level luxury sedan, the 2018 Nissan Maxima has a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 300 horsepower and a continuously variable transmission. Two drive modes, Normal and Sport, let drivers customize their experience behind the wheel. Standard on all trim levels are LED headlights, NissanConnect, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation systems, and an 8-way-power driver's seat. New for 2018 is Android Auto, which joins the already-available Apple CarPlay feature. Safety features on the 2018 Maxima include automatic emergency braking and a forward-collision warning. The SV trim level adds heated front seats and exterior mirrors, leather upholstery, and parking sensors. The SL and Platinum trims have dual-panel panoramic moonroofs, blind-spot warning systems and adaptive cruise control. The SR, the sportiest trim option, has larger wheels. The Platinum trim also has a surround-view camera, driver attention alert and moving object detection.
