If you need an affordable car in sedan format, then look no further than the 2018 Nissan Maxima. This car performs well. For the 2018 model year, Nissan has added Android Auto to the car’s connectivity options, which in the past have already included NissanConnect and Apple CarPlay. In the late 2017 model year, automatic emergency braking and forward-collision warning were added to the vehicle. Those two features carry over to the 2018 model year. Continue reading to learn all about the 2018 Nissan Maxima, and how this super fabulous sedan could be perfect for your driving needs!
What powers the Maxima is a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with an Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission. This transmission is Nissan’s D-Step shift logic, which mimics a traditional automatic’s operation by allowing the revs to rise and fall when at full throttle. An available Sport mode adjusts throttle response, steering effort and transmission tuning. The car provides great fuel economy--up to 30 mpg highway and 21 mpg city--and also delivers smooth, quiet power to the front wheels. The vehicle will provide up to 300 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm and 261 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. Premium, unleaded fuel is recommended for this car’s gas tank.
Standard on every 2018 Maxima are LED headlight and taillight accents. You can expect to have two USB ports, Bluetooth, Google search, and navigation through the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are both standard, and you can also plan to have a rearview camera, push-button ignition and keyless entry, an eight-way power driver’s seat and cruise control. Every model has a color seven-inch information screen between the main gauges. There is standard emergency braking and Intelligent Forward-Collision Warning (I-FCW). I-FCW looks two cars ahead to help anticipate a possible emergency and react as needed.
The four higher trim levels have extra features, instead of options packages. The Maxima SV has heated front seats, heated outside mirrors with LED turn signals, front and rear parking sensors and leather upholstery. SL and Platinum models have adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof and an upgraded audio system. The sporty SR has big wheels and tires. The Platinum has a surround-view camera, moving-object detection and a driver-attention alert system.
As we have indicated above, the 2018 Nissan Maxima is a great car. It outshines its competitors because of its performance and its various trim levels’ features. Nissan has decided to keep features that have worked with this vehicle, while adding other great ones to make for the perfect 2018 Maxima.
