WardsAuto 10 Best Interiors

Maxima Interior

If you take just one look at the 2016 Nissan Maxima, then you will be able to tell that it is one of the most beautiful cars on the road. However, that beauty is not restricted to just the Maxima’s exterior. The Nissan Maxima’s cabin was recently named one of WardsAuto 10 Best Interiors.

WardsAuto looked at nearly 47 different vehicles and their interiors to determine which ones had the best interiors for 2016.

With its streamlined design and surface and extensive list of amenities, the interior of the 2016 Nissan Maxima impressed the editors at WardsAuto.

“This interior makes a brilliant first impression,” said WardsAuto Senior Editor Tom Murphy. “The Maxima exhibits expert craftsmanship and reminds us once again why it serves as Nissan’s flagship. We love the black-and-camel color scheme, two-tone flat-bottom steering wheel, ‘Liquid Chrome’ metallic trim and Alcantara diamond-quilted seating surfaces. Nissan took some chances with the Maxima interior, but the rewards are evident.”

Nissan knows how to design a beautiful ride both inside and outside. The proof is the 2016 Nissan Maxima at Durango Nissan in Durango, CO!

New Nissan Maxima Offers Special Midnight SR Model

The Nissan Maxima is truly a vehicle that offers customers the best of both worlds—it’s a “four-door sports car” that combines the greatest conveniences of a sedan with all the fun and performance of a sports car. You might not realize it, but the Maxima is the second-ranked car in the whole Nissan lineup when it comes to performance. It trails only the supercar GT-R.

For the new Nissan Maxima model, the brand cooked up some extra special trims. For example, the Midnight SR trim is basically a cool blacked-out version of the Maxima sedan. The Midnight SR was first showcased at the BET Experience, highlighting the black accents on the wheels, mirrors, and wings. These black accents all combine to create an intimidating and impressive-looking vehicle.

The Nissan Maxima, available now here at Economy Nissan, comes with a V6 engine that gets you 300 horsepower, 261 lb-ft of torque, and can go from zero to sixty in just six seconds. With a top speed of 155 mph, the Maxima is ready to rule the roads. But don’t worry, it’s also a four door sedan, so you can fit the family in for all that road conquest.

We Almost Never Knew the 8th Generation Nissan Maxima

On June 2nd, the 8th generation Nissan Maxima will go on sale across the U.S., marking an important milestone for the “sport sedan.”  Just four years ago, the Maxima nameplate almost got the boot, according to Automotive News, with Nissan executives on the verge of calling it quits on the popular sedan. At the time, the auto industry was just beginning to come back from the recession, and buyers favored smaller, more fuel efficient cars.

Now, after a change in direction both in the economy and in buyer preferences, the Maxima is not only still around, but better than ever.

For 2016, the Maxima is sportier, featuring a new, aerodynamic design. Its low roofline and distinct body curves, an upgraded engine, improved fuel economy, a wraparound cockpit, and improved seating all contribute to the new Maxima’s performance and appeal.

“When I look at this car, I’m proudest of the fact that it’s here at all,” said Takeshi Yamaguchi, who was Nissan North America’s vice president for vehicle engineering and vehicle program management for the Maxima. “And on top of that, I’m proud of that fact that we took the Maxima beyond where it was, instead of taking it backward.”

Production Begins in Tennessee on Nissan’s All-New 4-Door Sports Car

The all-new Maxima, affectionately known as the 4-Door Sports Car is almost here! Production for the eighth-generation of the popular model began last month at Nissan’s assembly plant in Smyrna, Tennessee.

4-Door Sports Car

“Today is a great day for the plant,” said John Martin, Nissan North America senior vice president of Manufacturing, Supply Chain Management, and Purchasing, during the launch of production. “It’s a culmination of a lot of hard work by an awful lot of people in Japan, in Farmington Hills at our [Research & Development center], with our suppliers and, above all, with the team here.”

That team is comprised of dedicated employees who are very much aware of the task at hand in producing the all-new Maxima. With production surpassing 648,000 vehicles last year, the Smyrna plant boasts the highest production of any North American auto assembly plant.

One of the plant’s veteran workers has seen the launch of three generations of Maxima sedans. He acknowledges that “this one, right here, is going to raise the bar for us.”

Now that production has begun on the next-gen Maxima, our excitement for its release continues to grow. Of course, we’ll be sure to let you know when it arrives here at Economy Nissan.

Super Bowl Sneak Peak: The New Nissan Maxima Sport Sedan

“Auto show concept cars typically feature exaggerated body panels and trim to attract consumer attention. Automakers often tweak the production vehicle with more modest styling,” according to Automotive News. Not Nissan. Not this time.

Based on the sneak peek we got in Nissan’s SB49 commercial and other reports, the new Nissan Maxima will look almost identical to the sports sedan concept

The automaker has redesigned the Nissan Maxima sport sedan for the 2016 model year. And it looks nearly identical to the Maxima sport sedan concept that Nissan presented over a year ago at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Then, we saw it gleaming in Tootsie Pop orange.

Like Automotive News says, it’s truly rare that enthusiasts get to put their hands on a production model that so closely resembles the concept. That’s why we try to approach auto shows with reservation even while we dream madly of getting behind the wheel.

Those who caught the wonderful Super Bowl spot from Nissan about a race-car dad should have also caught glimpse of the new Nissan Maxima sport sedan. This time, it was in Tootsie Pop raspberry.

Nissan plans to officially unveil the new Nissan Maxima sport sedan at the New York Auto Show in April. We’ll keep you up to date on all the latest 2016 Maxima news here at the Economy Nissan blog.

2016 Nissan Maxima Theories Describe Sleek Look, Roomy Interior

Nissan grabbed enthusiasts’ interest this year at the Detroit Auto Show when they teased the idea of a new sports sedan concept–likely that of the 2016 Nissan Maxima. Shortly after, a new Maxima was caught in test drives, all covered with secrecy tape.

Now, speculation about the new vehicle has run rampant all over the internet, where experts have made predictions about the new model, based on Nissan trends and the limited public exposure given to the car thus far.

2016 Nissan Maxima Theories

There is speculation that the new 2016 Nissan Maxima could resemble this Nissan concept.

Some postulate, in the 2016 Maxima “we will probably be seeing the new V-shaped grille in the front and the boomerang shaped headlights. The inside will have better quality this time and also more legroom and headroom for the passenger.”

Apparently, the rumor also says the Nissan Pathfinder’s hybrid system might be utilized for the new Maxima, combining “a supercharged 2.5-liter, four-cylinder petrol with an electric motor for an output of 250 horsepower plus.”

We at Economy Nissan can’t wait to see the new Maxima for ourselves and are excited to read these 2016 Nissan Maxima theories. What do you think? Let us know your speculations in the comments.
