New Used Nissan Maxima at Kayser Used Cars for Madison, WI

When the current-generation Maxima was launched, a few years, ago, Nissan again termed it "The 4-Door Sports Car;" but we dare say that's a bit of a stretch. While the front-wheel-drive Maxima does have a sporting edge that doesn't infringe on passenger comfort, it doesn't have the packaging sacrifices in the name of performance, and the rear-wheel drive, that a certain crowd expects with that claim. First and foremost, the Maxima is the flagship sedan of the Nissan model line, offering a beautiful, finely sculpted design, plus more tech and a much more lavish interior than mainstream mid-size sedans like the Altima.

Under the Maxima's Hood

The Maxima has one of the sportiest calibrations of any front-drive sedan, and it's reasonably fun to drive, With its sport-tuned suspension, as well as steering and brakes that have been tuned for sportier driving, it has the makings of a solidly performing sporty sedan. Out of a tight corner, if you stomp on the accelerator, a fair amount of torque steer serve to remind you that this is a front-wheel drive sedan running a lot of torque through those wheels. That said, stabilizer bars are included front and back, and a Twin Orifice Steering System helps provide good feedback and control.

Design of Nissan Maxima

Part of the reason why the Maxima's design has aged so gracefully, and still remains contemporary, is that it felt so cohesive and curvaceous and different right from the start. With its somewhat Coke-bottle fender curves, low-set grille and hoodline, an aggressive, swept-back stance that's more like that of a rear-wheel-drive sedan, and aggressive 18- and 19-inch wheel designs, the Maxima remains a head-turner. And other exterior details like the long, raked-back headlamps have since been imitated in other sedan designs.

At the base level, the Nissan Maxima does really maximize the number of standard conveniences (like a power moonroof, power front seats, and Intelligent Key entry and starting), as well as optional extras. But if adding many of those extras, you should be aware that some of the most desirable ones come only by stepping up to the more expensive SV model.
