2018 Nissan Maxima SV
2018 Nissan Maxima SV welcome to our site find great offers on Nissan’s full line of reliable sedans, versatile crossovers, capable trucks and SUVs. It’s time to stop the pressure to the maximum to match your billing, like a four-door sports car and take it for what it is: a luxury car with a good price. A valiant 3.5-liter V-6 makes 300 HP and drives the front wheels through a CVT. The quiet cabin has a 8.0 inch touchscreen with navigation, Apple display, and Android Auto. It can be fitted with diamond-padded seat inserts, a dual-panel solar ceiling, and ambient lighting. Automated emergency braking is standard; Adaptive cruise control is optional.
Leaving aside the prestige factor, let’s see the main elements of Luxe here. leather — check; And the seats are heated, ventilated, perforated, and whitish. Wait, white? Nissan calls it Kashmir (the other option being charcoal), but it is a very light tone that dictates no chocolate ice cream cones be allowed in, never.
It’s hard to love this Nissan chip Trim, too, which is supposedly inspired by mahogany. Its appearance on the instrument panel, door fitting, and center console is one of the improvements that comes standard with the Platinum setting level-and makes a case to choose the more slightly less expensive and marginal more driver-oriented model than PROBAM OS in Mid-2015.
Regardless of the optics, there is plenty of indoor space, full entertainment and connectivity, first-class audio, exclusive quotes, quality materials, and low indoor noise levels regardless of vehicle speed or Pavement surface.
Outside, Maxima may not possess the elegance of elite rides in Europe or the personality of your face from the last Cadillacs. But its different angles and folds make it, at least as intriguing as it looks like any Azer or Impala. And this external treatment – Nissan calls this new family view V-Motion – contributes to the presence of the sidewalk, because of which it is difficult to ignore.
Check under the sign, the argument of the luxury car becomes a little weak. The invented 3.5-liter V-6 natural form of respectable horsepower, sufficient to propel our 3607-pound car to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds – is not quite spectacular, but in accordance with the standards of its competition. Despite 300 horsepower, the Maxima propeller is the key factor that keeps it in a luxurious array: the front-wheel drive and the continuous variable Xtronic automatic transmission (CVT) do not exceed the standards of the rental car.
Nissan is the leader in the development of CVT, and the maxims suggest that this once-outlined device borders on acceptability among people who like to drive. With a large leg in the accelerator, the transmission offers simulated changes, and also responds well to manual movement. However, a solid foot in the accelerator is required to enter the chess logic of the change. Moderate throttle inputs still give strong hints at the classic CVT response with the steepness of the clutch, the sense of transmission, trying to keep up with the engine.
On the back roads, top maxima give a surprisingly good account of itself, with a buttoned-down chassis and suspension adaptation that is firm enough to keep the corner attitudes reasonably level and responses to Steering inputs reasonably quickly.
