The new vehicle, which adds a selection of factory and dealer-installed accessories to a black-on-black Maxima SR, debuts this week during the BET Experience in Los Angeles.

All 2016 Maximas feature a revised 300-horsepower 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 engine and new performance-oriented Xtronic transmission.

The new 2016 Maxima also embodies the latest Nissan design language and projects a distinctive upscale look through its unique combination of a lower profile and a wide stance, bold front end, Nissan signature V-Motion grille and floating roof appearance. The new Maxima also features a premium-crafted interior featuring standard NissanConnectSM with navigation and available 11-speaker Bose® premium audio system, NissanConnectSM Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) and Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD).
