The Redesigned Exterior – Review Nissan Maxima 8

On the one hand, the new sedan Nissan Maxima is required to demonstrate the continuity of generations. On the other hand, to become the personification of the most powerful and elegant vehicle from Nissan, able to take the upper stage in the model lineup.

Nissan introduced the concept of sports sedan in 2014 and the present cab sticks to the concept. The signature style of flowing sprightly lines is gracing this sedan with some flair and style. The chunky front with pointed elements infuse fresh feel. The overall perception of the front fascia is that of a stout frog’s face. The main grill in front is trapezoidal in shape and is flanked by LED panel. The head lamp is bordered by boomerang shaped LED ribbon. Its body is sculpted from all-metal sheet. The sill is raised, giving the perception of increased height and it is higher at the back. The pillars are blacked out which makes the roofline sloping at the back, resembling that of a canopy of a jet. The Body speaks the language of muscles with bold and sculpted lines flowing through the entire length and breadth of the car. Review Nissan Maxima 8 closely to realize that the manner is mean, muscular, and pouncing.

The Inside Viscera

The car is available in trim levels of S, SV, SL, SR, and Platinum. The interior carries forward the tone of mean with style. The plush leather is luxurious, in fact in its price range it is rumoured to have the best in class interiors. The seats are NASA inspired which are zero gravity concept based and are extremely healthy for the spine. The interior is spacious with firm front seats and enough legroom and headroom for the back seater. Even the six-footers will be smiling. The boot space is not much, rather smallest in its segment, though the inside of the cargo space is well shaped.

The resemblance to a jet spreads to the insides as well. The cockpit inspired dash swathes the driver and the feel of sports car is strongly accentuated by the three spoked and flattened steering and metal inserts in the front panel. The standard feature in a base model incorporates GPS, Auto-climate control, remote start, rear-view eye, push button start, SiriusXM system, Bluetooth, USB ports, etc. There are two digital screens in the car: a 7-inch and an 8-inch display.

The top model is powered with NissanConnect which is telematics software and has noteworthy characteristics like collision warning, door lock/unlock, vehicle locator in case of thefts, remote start, concierge service, panoramic head roof, temperature controls with each seat, and many more. Review Nissan Maxima 8 literally and it is a cockpit inside.

Under the Hood

Available in normal and sport versions, it is tight in handling, connects to the rubble, and the body roll is low. The V6 motor is highly refined and upgraded and is the most powerful non-turbocharged V6 around. It hurls out an impressive 300 horses and turning power is at 261 pound feet. All of that turning power is directed to the front wheels. The car lacks an option of an all-wheel drive which is a huge dampener, especially in the section it belongs to. The motor is paired with a CVT gear box. This car is indubitably aggressive with independent suspension, wide gear, and shifting sense.
