New Nissan Maxima Makes Good on its “Four Door Sports Sedan” Name

2016 Nissan Maxima

If you’re not already driving a Nissan Maxima, you might be unaware of the true power of this four-door sports sedan. While the Maxima might seem like it is built for everyday use, it has a surprise under the hood—a 300-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. Living up to the “sport” descriptor in its name, the Maxima is considered one of the top Nissan models when it comes to performance, trailing only the GT-R model.

While power takes the forefront in the 2016 Nissan Maxima, it’s available trim levels are also top-notch. Our favorite is the SR sports trim. Nissan recently released a new 2016 Maxima SR Midnight edition at the BET Experience, which comes with even more options and features to boost your customer experience. The Maxima comes with a V6 engine and a CVT transmission, gets over 300 horsepower, and even gets 261 lb-ft of torque.

The Maxima matches form and function really well, too, with a beautiful exterior design that blends seamlessly into an ergonomically and comfortably designed interior. The SR model even comes with special accents—black mirrors, black wheels, and other black design touches as well. Come visit Nissan of Lake Charles to learn more!

All-New 2016 Maxima Goes On Sale This Summer

Nissan has finally divulged all the details on the latest Maxima sedan, which it originally showed in a surprise ad at the Super Bowl.

The all-new 2016 Maxima will go on sale this summer at Nissan of Lake Charles and set “a new standard for style, performance and technology in the mid-size sedan segment.”

Thanks to a new 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 producing 300 horsepower, the Nissan Maxima is touting a power-to-weight ratio that exceeds that of the Acura TLX V6 and BMW 335i.

That’s not all though. Nissan rebuilt more than half of last year’s V6, with over 60 percent of the parts being new, contributing to a 15 percent improvement in highway fuel economy. The CTV is also new and, according to the automaker, “performance oriented.” All of these make the 2016 Maxima even more desirable than ever!

Those are only a few of the details, however, and details do abound. The Maxima has many new features to make it hold true to Nissan’s promise, so check out the official press release for the rest of it!
