Published on January 16, 2023

The Japanese automaker recently announced that the 2023 Maxima would be the last iteration of this vehicle generation, and that the model would be removed from the Nissan car lineup for the time being.

However, that doesn’t mean that the 2023 Maxima isn’t a sedan worth manufacturing. Find out everything there is to know about the Maxima, such as its performance, exterior, interior and, of course, the prices of these different versions.

Powertrain and Performance of the 2023 Nissan Maxima

Even though the 2023 Maxima only has one engine available, it’s more than enough to please power lovers looking for a large, dynamic sedan.

Under the hood, the Nissan Maxima comes with a 3.5L V6 engine. Equipped with this engine, it is capable of:

  • 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque
  • Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds
  • Fuel consumption of 7.9 L/100 km on the highway and 11.6 L/100 km in the city. For a combined city/highway consumption of 9.9 L per 100 km

Considering the transmission, it is a continuously variable automatic transmission with a driving mode selector to choose between normal or sporty driving. The 2023 Maxima is only available with front wheel drive.

The Exterior Styles of the Nissan Maxima

Three versions are available, the Nissan Maxima is a sedan that knows how to look good.

The Nissan Maxima SR, the sporty version, comes with black aluminum alloy wheel rims for its 19-inch tires, a sport spoiler and a gloss black grille.

On the other hand, the Nissan Maxima Platinum is rather conservative in its appearance, one of the exterior differences with the base model of the Maxima are the 19-inch wheels, compared to the 18-inch tires of the Nissan Maxima L.

Whether you prefer a more classic or sporty style, the Maxima has what you’re looking for.

A powerful engine isn’t the only important thing in a vehicle. Fortunately, the Nissan Maxima doesn’t have to sacrifice cabin comfort to deliver its performance.
