2019 Nissan Maxima SR Midnight Edition
2019 Nissan Maxima SR Midnight Edition welcome to our site find great offers on Nissan’s full line of reliable sedans, versatile crossovers, capable trucks, and SUVs. With enough comfort to please a luxury buyer, enough athleticism to keep an avid driver engaged, and ample style of play to appeal to tech connoisseurs, the Nissan Maxima is a well-rounded full-size sedan. Its sporty aggressive lines provide optical punch and invite attention. The Maxima also makes an advertising game as many of its virtues are standard across the range — including touchscreen infotainment, in-dash navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and automated emergency braking. A powerful and fuel-efficient V-6 is under the hood, and an optional sports-coordinated suspension turns the heat into corners without punishing the occupants when driving across rough roads. Compared to the competition, the Maxima offers the most balanced mix of style, luxury, and sport.
A slight refreshment of the exterior style adds some sparkle to the maximum for 2019 in the form of a redesigned front grille, a rear bumper with four exhaust counters and new outdoor lights. SR and platinum models receive new interior upholstery furniture; Leather and microsuede with orange accents adorn the seats of the sporty SR, while Platinum models with quilted inserts and a new color option get leather: Rakuda Tan. Nissan adopts its Safety Shield 360 assistance features as an option on the SR and standard on the Platinum; The package includes front and rear automated emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, blind-point monitoring and more. A rear door alarm, a driver’s attention monitor and two USB-C ports are now standard across the entire range.

In a well-equipped cabin with soft-touch material, simple controls, and barrel-heavy high-end features, the Maxima can accommodate five. Legroom on the front seats is among the best in the class, while the headspace is average. The backseat seat is not as generous as with larger rivals such as the Chevrolet Impala and the Toyota Avalon. Power-adjustable driver and passenger seats, a leather-packed steering wheel and button, a double-zone automatic climate control system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a push-button start are standard as standard.
An 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard throughout the Maxima range and we found it easy to use. The infotainment system can be used as a touchscreen, but there are also redundant buttons on the center pile that allow quick access to common adjustments such as volume and climate control. The system also provides vehicle monitoring, remote access, and emergency services. Parents of teenage drivers may appreciate the speed, boundary and blocking warnings, and the system automatically contacts emergency services when the airbags are deployed after an accident. The ability to track Maxima’s location in the event of theft is handy, as is long-distance and door lock access.

One of the smallest strains in the category means that the maximums start with a disadvantage in transporting goods; However, the larger cabins are comfy places to smash everyday objects, and the rear seatbacks fold down to accommodate larger items. We managed to assemble six hand rods in the trunk of the maximums with the rear seats and 15 suitcases with folded seats.
The Maxima has superior crash test results as well as recognition for its driver assistance capabilities, giving it a top safety assistance rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Basic driver assistance features are standard and more advanced technology is available on the SR and Platinum models. Key security features include:
- Standard automated emergency braking
- Standard forward collision warning
- Available adaptive cruise control
2019 Nissan Maxima SR Midnight Edition Engine
The sporty SR trim is our favorite. Its performance-oriented bowing is suitable for avid riders like us and includes devices we find exciting, such as a sports-coordinated suspension, 19-inch wheels and leather, and microsuede-covered seats. These options bring the maximums as close as possible to the sporting ethos she was once known for, and they offer a welcome touch of athleticism, with no compromises on ride quality or overall luxury.

The Maxima is one of the faster full-size sedans, and its V-6 engine sounds good when pressed hard. The 3.5-liter V-6 makes 300 horsepower and moves the maximums with purpose. However, the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) reduces the Maxima’s sports sedan. Although it mimics the switching properties of a typical automatic under heavy accelerator pedal, the CVT otherwise spoils the fun of the V-6. All maxims are front-wheel drive, which is fine under normal circumstances. In our test, a Maxima Platinum sprinted from zero to 60 km/h in 5.7 seconds, taking in competitors such as the Kia Cadenza and the Buick LaCrosse.

The Maxima is well suited to its size. The suspension is nicely muted and firm to the point that it may be too stiff for the class, especially in the SR trim level that has re-tuned feathers, dampers, and anti-roll poles. It’s relatively quiet, but hard impacts are heard through the suspension and in the cabin. The Maxima shows small body rolls in aggressive curve maneuvers, and in our tests, the Maxima SR easily led its competitors. Light and vague in the default setting, the steering becomes heavier and heavier when the sports mode is activated but does not provide additional feedback from the road.
With good fuel ratings and above-average real-world results, Maxima’s powertrain proves adept at mixing performance and efficiency. Thanks to its long motorway cruise, it is also a perfect long-distance companion. On our 200-mile fuel economy test track, we surpassed Maxima’s EPA rating, reaching an impressive 32mpg.
