What's New for the 2018 Nissan Maxima?

This year, Android Auto joins Apple CarPlay as standard equipment, so all smartphone users can view apps like Phone and Maps directly on the central touchscreen. If you're stuck in especially troublesome traffic, you can even use your phone's sophisticated voice controls to make a hands-free call home or reroute navigation settings. Later this year, the SR Midnight Edition is set to make its debut. It's designed to turn heads on the highway, with sharp exterior styling upgrades and stunning blacked-out wheels.
