The Maxima isn't all about looks, though. All of its safety features come standard; items such as traction control, tire pressure monitoring, an energy-absorbing steering column and the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System are included with every Maxima.
The interior has leather seats, a leather shift knob and a leather-lined steering wheel. The 8-way power driver's seat has lumbar support, while front seat passengers make do with a 4-way power seat. The rear bucket seats fold down with a 60/40 split. Dual-zone climate control with an air filter is standard as are rear-seat air conditioning controls. Everything in the Maxima is power, from the push-button start to the remote windows-down function.
The packaged options for the S add smoked HID xenon headlights, a compass in the rearview mirror, unique 18-inch wheels, fog lights, integrated side mirror indicators, a rear spoiler and metallic trim. On the SV, the Sport Package includes 19-inch dark alloy wheels, sport suspension, HID headlamps, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, paddle shifters, a 7-inch color display, heated front seats and rear bucket seats. The Premium Package includes a dual-panel moonroof, a climate-controlled driver seat, rearview monitor, USB input and cherry wood trim.
