The newest 2017 Nissan Maxima release is a stunning new vehicle introduced in the Nissan lineup which does its best to distance itself from the Altima model. The stunning visual shape is what the vehicle holds as its greatest asset. A great shape is only completed with a very charming front drive and is what makes the vehicle very good.
The initial announcement proclaimed that the Maxima is going to have a higher price than before. As it caused ruckus at first the issue was resolved with the fact that the Maxima is going to have larger dimensions from before and is what makes the car a bit pricier. But the vehicle holds some luxury elements and fine features to it which also makes it a great update for the car. The stunning looks combined with a decent performance are what you can expect from the latest Nissan product.
The Nissan Maxima has perhaps gone through an identity crisis with the latest products, particularly with the last one. This newest 2017 aims to resolve this issue and put the Maxima back on its track. The following review holds all the specs and news that are related with the latest 2017 Nissan Maxima so you can utilize it to your advantage and get yourself acquainted with all the details related to this new car.
2017 Nissan Maxima exterior
The 2017 Nissan Maxima has adopted an extravagant exterior style. The idea was to make the car as distinguishable as possible from the Altima vehicle, as the more mainstream vehicle shares the drivetrain and the architecture with the Maxima. They managed to do so by making some adjustments in the design which resulted in a much more extravagant looking car than the Altima model. They managed to produce the car by adding all sorts of angular parts and making it a bit more chunkier than it was. The massive grille at the front and the boomerang-shaped headlights are the hallmark and cornerstone parts of a Nissan vehicle and have been kept here for this design. The back side is disguised a bit with the design of the roof while the rear pillars are blacked out.
Looing it from a rear-quarter view we see that the vehicle has some dramatic sculpturing which capture a lot of light like that and it may pose to be a bit distracting at some points. On the sides, the 2017 Nissan Maxima has a muscular look which makes it long but thick in the middle part. The end of the car is a bit tall which is a look that is favored by all crossover vehicle The headlights and taillights are actually a reminiscence of the older middles of the Maxima as it has the shapes etched inside them to help us remember the period.
The inside of the 2017 Nissan Maxima does its best to be as different as possible from the Altima car, but actually fails with its comparison on the inside. The car has many similarities with the Altima car and can hardly be differentiated from that vehicle. But there are some innovations brought here that make for an entirely different car. The inside of the Maxima is a much more tighter interior that the Altima ever was and it wraps around the driver in the cockpit area very nicely and tightly.
The details are much like in a sport sedan car and the most characteristic part of this look is a flat bottom steering wheel. There are glimpse of a metallic trim on the sides of the dashboard which is going to be present in all the trims. All trims of the newest Maxima also get a large 8.0-inch touchscreen around which you get the secondary controls needed for the car. This is the greatest difference from the Altima vehicle as the substantial controls which have been added here are more adventurous looking and actually have a lot more going on there than compared to the conservative setting of the Altima car.
Powering the newest 2017 Nissan Maxima is a 3.5-liter V-6 engine which produces 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain is combined with a continuously variable transmission that offers a wide gear ratio and has a shifting logic that allows for a far more aggressive setup than in any of the previous vehicle.
The updated engine is much more powerful and poses a great new opportunity for any of the new Maxima owners that appear on the market. The car is going to come with an all-wheel drive option and does not include a rear wheel drive, which perhaps limits it a bit as the vehicles from the Infiniti brand do get to have one.
