Convenient Features of the 2016 Nissan Maxima

July 21st, 2016 by

Completely revamped for the 2016 model year, the Nissan Maxima has been specifically designed with driving enthusiasts in mind. With an updated engine, new transmission option, and new driver alert systems, it’s no wonder the 2016 Nissan Maxima is one of the most convenient vehicles to drive. While the list is almost endless, we’ve compiled a lineup of some of the Maxima’s most convenient, luxurious, and easy-to-use features that enhance driving.

Sport Modenissan

One of the 2016 Nissan Maxima’s best driving features is its ability to shift into Sport Mode. Kicking into this gear will give way to an all-new driving experience. The Maxima’s throttle response gets much sharper, the steering gets heavier and more dynamic, the shifts are quicker, and the engine’s purr turns into a mighty growl. Switching back into the Normal Mode of driving is seamless and gives way to a much smoother, more refined, and fuel-efficient ride.

A 300-Horsepower, 3.5-Liter V-6 Engine

Under the new Maxima’s hood lies pure perfection. Nissan’s renowned VQ V-6 engine is complete with sodium-filled exhaust valves, anodized pistons, and a high-flow tuned induction system, all coupled with a redesign for the 2016 model year. Sprinting from 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds, the 300-horsepower engine is certainly a powerhouse. Those looking for more performance power on the road won’t be disappointed with this exhilarating Nissan engine.

Dynamic Handling

Riding around those tight corners just got a lot easier and more exciting with the updated handling in the 2016 Nissan Maxima. Engineered for a lower, lighter, and tighter experience, the Maxima certainly takes handling to a whole other level. The new rear suspension system features monotube dampers that are usually only found in high-end sports cars. Plus, this system gives way to a higher torsional rigidity than ever before. In fact, it even beats some sports cars.

All-New Transmission

Think you know all there is to know about Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT)? Think again! Nissan takes a whole new approach with a completely redesigned CVT that appeals to both the driving enthusiast and the economist. This system features dynamic step shifting and a greater gear ratio coverage along with an adaptive shift controller. What does this mean? The 2016 Nissan Maxima has a more distinctive, connected, and spirited driving experience that’s topped with increased fuel efficiency.

Center Control Panel and Flat-Bottomed Steering Wheel

Sliding into the driver seat is like entering a whole new world that’s specifically designed for driver comfort and convenience. The new interior features contrast stitching, a padded center console trim, flat-bottomed steering wheel (borrowed from the Chevrolet Corvette), along with a center console that creates a “command center” appearance in both design and function. Plus, the push-button engine start allows for a dramatic and quick getaway while still providing control right at your fingertips.

Now you know some of the top-notch features and functionalities that make the 2016 Nissan Maxima one of the most convenient vehicles to drive.
