About the 2017 Nissan Maxima
Maxima's cutting edge exterior starts with a distinctive upscale look that embodies the latest Nissan design language through its unique combination of a lower profile and a wide stance, bold front end, Nissan signature V-Motion grille and floating roof appearance. Maxima's lighting features define its presence on the road with boomerang-style headlights and taillights, LED daytime running lights and two-piece taillights. Large dual exhaust tailpipe finishers and 18-inch machined-finished aluminum-alloy wheels (19-inch wheels on the Maxima SR grade) complement the look. The 2017 Maxima is available in nine exterior colors, including two Maxima-exclusive exterior colors – Forged Bronze and Coulis Red.
Maxima's stunning interior design is anchored by a command central driver's cockpit that features optimal reach to all controls and a center stack angled toward the driver. The Display Commander control, located on the console, allows fingertip control of the center display. The bespoke-style interior offers genuine stitching on the instrument panel, doors and console, available LED Interior Accent Lighting, available Ascot premium leather seating surfaces with diamond-quilted inserts (also available in Alcantara®), unique faceted finishers and a sporty D-shape (flat-bottom) steering wheel.
In addition, luxury-level interior quietness is enabled by an Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system that works much like noise cancelling headphones, helping reduce unpleasant low-frequency sounds. An Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) system, which works by enhancing existing engine sound from the 3.5-liter V6 into the cabin (Bose® audio equipped models only), is standard on SV, SR and Platinum grades.
Maxima's 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 engine applies lessons learned from the legendary Nissan GT-R, such as sodium-filled valves, to meet needs of the higher compression ratio and combustion temperatures. With 300 horsepower, it achieves a high specific output (HP/L) of 85.7 horsepower/liter. Highway fuel economy is rated at 30 miles per gallon***.
Complementing the 3.5-liter V6 is a performance-oriented Xtronic transmission featuring a wide ratio range, which allows for strong acceleration from a standing start and a D-Step shifting logic that provides rapid shifts at high throttle openings.
Maxima's refined handling and ride comfort starts with a redesigned platform (versus the previous generation) that features increased use of high strength steel and a revised 4-wheel independent suspension with monotube rear shock absorbers. The sporty Maxima SR grade features unique suspension damper tuning, a larger front stabilizer bar and 19-inch wheels and tires to add even more performance.
The 2017 Maxima also offers an extensive range of safety, security and driving aids, including Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW). These features are standard on Maxima SL, SR and Platinum grades. Maxima also offers an available Driver Attention Alert (DAA) system****, which learns each individual driver's steering patterns and helps alert the driver when drowsy or inattentive driving is detected (Maxima Platinum only).
The 2017 Nissan Maxima is assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee, with engines assembled in Decherd, Tennessee.
