A Look at the 2012 Nissan Maxima

Last updated 6 years ago

The midsize sedan segment is overflowing with vehicles that offer mushy handling, frumpy styling, and depressing acceleration. However, Nissan finds this way of design unacceptable. Here’s why the 2012 Nissan Maxima is your best bet for a midsize sedan: 

Engaging Handling

The reason that the new Nissan Maxima is one of the best yet is because it offers an athletic driving experience. Even without the sports package, you’ll be able to tell instantly after getting behind the wheel of the 2012 Nissan Maxima that it’s connected to the road. 

Powerful Performance

Thanks to its new engine—a 290 horsepower, 261 lb-ft of torque 3.5L V6—and a new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), the latest Nissan Maxima is able to provide aggressive acceleration. The sportier Nissan Maxima SV can take you from a stop to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds. 

Sophisticated Interior

One thing that the 2012 Nissan Maxima is known for is its sleek, high-quality interior. Seats are plush and supportive, and the cabin feels more luxurious than cars at the same price range. When you get into the Nissan Maxima, you might even think you’re driving a car that’s twice as expensive. 

Enhanced Standard Features

It wouldn’t be a Nissan Maxima if it didn’t come with a full set of standard features. The base model offers premium features like 18-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, keyless ignition, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, and an eight-speaker stereo that can hook up with your iPod via auxiliary input. If those aren’t enough, you can upgrade to the Nissan Maxima SV and get a nine-speaker Bose sound system, premium seats, fog lights, and sportier styling.
