2016 Nissan Maxima debuts at the New York International Auto Show
Six years after the stunning seventh generation Maxima emerged, the all-new version of the Japanese sedan makes its way onto the show floor at the 26th iteration of the New York International Auto Show. Living up to its 4-Door Sports Car position, the 2016 Nissan Maxima showcases the brand’s new design language – including the V-Motion front end, signature boomerang lights, and a unique floating roof appearance.
On the technological front, the Maxima is home to an 8.0-inch touchscreen central display with navigation capabilities and a Google powered online search. Among other features, are Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (CTA), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), and Driver Attention Alert (DAA).
Under the hood, the 2016 Maxima houses a redesigned 3.5 litre V6 engine that puts out 300 horsepower (a bump of 9 horsepower over the previous generation model) to churn out 85.7 horsepower / litre and an estimated 15 percent hike in highway fuel economy.
Complementing the revised power plant, is a new Xtronic transmission featuring a wider ratio range, which allows for stronger acceleration from a standing start and an all-new D-Step shifting logic that provides rapid shifts at high throttle openings.
Prices revealed at the show for the US markets, are North of USD $32,410.
