In the 2019 Nissan Maxima, high-end luxury and blazing speed are standard equipment. We're not kidding when we say that this high-powered four-door sedan is nothing short of luxurious. Inside, the cabin is a true beauty; its tight assembly of high-quality materials will make you feel like you've spent way more money on a sedan than you actually care to. Top trims even don diamond-quilted leather to give you the full luxury treatment.
You'll also find that the Maxima's reputation for sporty performance is spot-on. This 300-horsepower four-door sedan blazes past the competition - and the optional engine sound enhancement gear makes sure the competition knows it. In the mid-size sedan segment, there's no model that has sportier handling.
What are the 2019 Nissan Maxima trim levels?
The 2019 Nissan Maxima caters to drivers from different walks of life with five trims: the S, SV, SL, SR, and Platinum. The one you choose really reflects what kind of driver you are.
Want a great deal on a luxurious ride? Then check out the entry-level Maxima S. It's loaded with goodies to keep you comfy and connected. Little luxuries, like dual-zone automatic climate control and the leather-wrapped steering wheel, speak to your good taste without costing extra. Then there are the smartphone integration features-Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports-so you can safely use your devices on the go. This Maxima also has safety in mind. Its forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking even has the potential to save lives.
Get the 2019 Nissan Maxima SV to take an even bigger bite out of the finer things. Its standard lineup has the leather upholstery, heated front seats, and upgraded driver seat you need for a long, luxurious commute. This trim also adds some highway-friendly high-tech safety features, namely the blind-spot monitoring system and adaptive cruise control.
Next up is the Maxima SL, which doesn't cost much more than the SV and puts you at the helm of even greater luxury. And by luxury, we mean a dual-panel sunroof, ambient interior lighting, and a premium Bose audio system. This sedan even includes active noise reduction-the better to hear the tunes wafting out of your Bose system.
For the sportiest possible performance, put your money on the Maxima SR. This trim adds to the 300-horsepower engine's speedy performance with enhanced precision. Its paddle shifters and sport-tuned suspension mean greater driver control, and some brakes-based features boost the Maxima's overall ride and handling.
When you simply can't live without a fully loaded cabin, you need the Maxima Platinum. This top-of-the-line sedan rivals European luxury liners with its upgraded leather upholstery and ventilated front seats. No matter how tall or short you are, the Platinum's power-adjustable steering column and driver-seat memory functions have you covered. The surround-view parking camera helps you maintain a pristine paint job as you ease into the last parallel parking space on the block.
Which 2019 Nissan Maxima is the fastest?
Each of Nissan's four-door sports cars features the same powertrain: a hefty 3.5-liter V6 that makes 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. The Maxima's continuously variable transmission sends that power to the front wheels.
Even though technically every Maxima trim uses the same amount of power, these sedans aren't all made of the same stuff. If you're a true speed demon, the Maxima SR trim is the sedan for you. On top of its muscular engine, this trim adds a layer of performance gear for crazy cornering and high-powered braking. The SR trim has it all: sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters, and braking upgrades. And the SR's active engine sound enhancement makes sure everyone can hear you coming.
