Sedan

Latest Nissan Maxima

Pros & Cons

  • Well-made and attractive cabin
  • Tech controls are easy to use
  • Sharp handling for a midsize sedan
  • The back seat and trunk aren't very spacious
  • The ride is firm, and even firmer in the SR trim


Nissan Maxima Interior

The Maxima's interior looks great, the controls are easy to use, and the infotainment system's structure is logical. But there's a price to pay for the Maxima's sleek exterior design. Passenger space is limited, and the cabin feels small. Front passengers get decent headroom, but intrusions in the footwells and high armrests make things feel cramped.


Rear passengers endure even less legroom and headroom. And getting in and out of the Maxima, particularly for those in the rear seat, is more work than it should be. Visibility also leaves something to be desired, and the front corners of the car are hard to judge. Useful side mirrors and safety aids help for awareness.

Nissan maxima Technology

Nissan's technology features are easy to use, but aside from up to two USB-C ports (in addition to two regular ones) and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, the infotainment feels dated and behind the curve. The stereo and touchscreen are adequate, especially if you like bass, but other midsize sedans cost less and offer more fully featured systems and better audio.


Most basic infotainment features can be controlled through voice command, but we found the system finicky about word choice and phrasing. Driver aids are also limited. Adaptive cruise control works well and can bring the car to a complete stop, but Nissan's innovative ProPilot package isn't offered.

Nissan Maxima Trunk

The trunk has a wide and low opening, which makes for easy loading. Additional useful features include holding hooks for hanging shopping bags and in-trunk pull tabs to release the fold-down seats.


The Maxima has four clearly marked lower car-seat anchors across the back seat and sufficient space for most car seats. The downside is the sloping rear door opening that will require some parental contortions for access.
