The 2020 Nissan Maxima is a sedan car that perfectly mixes performance and styling. Powered by a strong V6 engine, new Maxima offers a great driving dynamics and manners. Moreover, Maxima wears a well-known Nissan’s 4-door sports car design and the list of available standard features is astonishing. On the other hand, we can’t mark this sedan as a “luxurious” but entry-level of a luxury is a more precise guess.

LED headlights are standard, the same stands for keyless entry and a rearview camera. A panoramic moonroof, bigger alloy wheels, and a surround-view camera are all optional. With the Midnight Edition package, this car will look much more attractive. It will get some of the blacked element like painted wheels, roof, grill.
