Why choose the 2020 Nissan Maxima?
Take this midsize sedan home for the ultimate balance of premium comfort and smooth-riding performance. You won’t find another sedan in this price range with such sharp handling. Inside, the cabin is pleasing to the eye as well as your pressure points. The seats’ blend of cushioning and support are perfect for long drives.
Which trim model is right for me?
Choose from five 2020 Nisan Maxima trim models: the S, SV, SL, SR, and Platinum. The S starts you off with infotainment must-haves, including an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. The front seats are power-adjustable and the steering wheel is wrapped in leather. The entry-level S is also loaded with high-tech safety gear, with everything from a rearview camera to automatic front and rear braking to help you avoid trouble.
From there, the SV adds increasing luxury, with heated front seats and leather upholstery. It also smooths out your daily drive, thanks to adaptive cruise control and navigation technology. The SL goes the extra mile with a panoramic sunroof and an upgraded Bose sound system.
The SR adds high-performance gear, including a sporty suspension and paddle shifters. Inside, you’ll find even more luxury with ventilated front seats and simulated-suede seating inserts.
If you’re looking for a taste of all the finer things, the Maxima Platinum has what you seek, from upgraded leather upholstery to stylish interior trim. The driver seat includes memory settings, so you can find that perfect spot at the wheel every time.
Will the 2020 Nissan Maxima have AWD?
Although the new Maxima is as smooth and powerful as ever, it has yet to offer all-wheel drive. Under the hood, though, you’ll find a robust 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s good for 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. You can see why this sedan has a sporty reputation. A continuously variable transmission sends power to the front wheels.
What are the 2020 Nissan Maxima mpg ratings?
This high-powered sedan balances speed with modern fuel economy, earning 24 mpg or 20 city/30 highway mpg. The Maxima also delivers a smooth blend of swiftness and ride comfort, not unlike a luxury sedan.
