Remember when buying a full-size sedan meant a bean-shaped model meant to get you from place to place, but not much else? Neither do we. The Nissan lineup has long stood out for the Maxima, a model with a spacious interior and sophisticated, yet athletic, exterior. Though it may not look much different, the 2018 Nissan Maxima continues to offer an impressive option for Glendale Heights IL drivers thanks to now-standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

What else is new for the 2018 model year? The model has two available rear USB charge ports for easy access for backseat passengers, fresh color options and black accent trim in the grille. These all may seem like subtle upgrades, but when a brand is already doing things right, it’s the little adjustments that count.

2018 Nissan Maxima Performance and Features

There are two key reasons any shopper selects a vehicle: Performance specs and available features. The 2018 Nissan Maxima is available in five trim levels: S, SV, SL, SR and Platinum. All trims come with the 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. Needless to say, you won’t struggle with acceleration or find yourself falling behind in the passing lane. Paired with this potent engine is the Xtronic CVT, which offers seamless shifting and helps increase fuel economy compared to manual or automatic options. The Maxima, a full-size sedan, earns an EPA-estimated 21 city and 30 highway mpg rating.

What about features? The Maxima starts with the S trim and comes with a standard 8-inch multi-touch control monitor, built-in navigation, voice recognition, SiriusXM with three-month trial subscription, Bluetooth, a rearview monitor, dual-zone automatic climate control, Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button ignition, remote engine start and more.

Available features include Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Driver Alertness, a front and rear sonar system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, adjustable ambient LED interior lighting, a rear-window power sunshade and driver’s seat memory.
