2017 Nissan Maxima Summary

Better looking and more sporty than the Nissan Altima, the Maxima could be considered a full-size sedan, sitting atop a midsize chassis. Nicely equipped even in base trim, the Maxima delivers good value in upper levels as well. A V6 engine driving a CVT might limit driving excitement, but the Maxima has plenty of other virtues for comfortable travel and daily use.
