The 2016 Nissan Maxima is a complete, stylish, attractive and aerodynamic rejuvenation of the old Datsun Maxima which was first launched as the Datsun 810 in 1977. The car went through some name transformations. In 1981, the name was changed from DATSUN 810 to “810 Maxima” for the North American Markets and “NISSAN BLUEBIRD” for the European markets. In 1983, it was renamed “NISSAN MAXIMA”.

The popularity of the MAXIMA gathered, even, more momentum in 1981 when the manufacturer introduced the audible warning system, telling owners that their doors were left opened, lights were left on and keys not removed from the Ignition.

The car went through several generational changes with the 2016 model being the eighth generation. The ultra-modern interior architecture replicating the US FA-18 Fighter Jet epitomizes it as a 4 door sports car, also similar to the Nissan GT-R supercar. The centre Stack is angled seven degrees towards the driver as it is in the GT-R. This makes it easy for the driver to reach all switches, buttons and controls in the cockpit. Apart from easy reach, the cockpit exemplifies luxury with its superior stitching, lighting and upgraded leather upholstery.

The D-Shape steering wheel and the bold V-Motion signature grille as well as the floating roof line lend credence to the assertion that the car is really a sport sedan.

It is an all-new design with a choice of four models, the SV; SL; SR and PLATINUM engineered with a 300 horsepower, 3.5 liters and V6. Its take off is almost synonymous with that of a fighter jet with an extra-ordinary move from zero to one hundred kmh in few seconds, an unimaginable start until you finish.

The SV is designed with heated front seats and steering wheel ideal for the cold climate of Canada. It also comes with Intelligent Key with Remote Engine Start System. This allows you to lock and unlock the doors remotely from the key Fob. It also gives you the opportunity to start the car Engine with a simple touch of the “Start” button on the dashboard. You can also unlock the car with a touch on the button on the handle of the front doors. As an empirical confirmation of its status symbol, the car comes with elegant and quality leather seats making it the cynosure for all eyes.

Driving a car is serious, especially when backing up. The MAXIMA SV comes with a Rear View Monitor which allows you to see objects behind, on the 8” color display screen. For added safety, the car has both Front and Rear Sonar System. There are sensors on all the four corners of the vehicle giving you audible warning when you are getting closer to an object.

With technology being a driving force in today’s market for the potential car buyer, the new Nissan Maxima comes with an embodiment of Technology captioned “NissanConnect” with NAVIGATION and mobile applications. With this, you can connect with the outside world via different applications like Google Search, Facebook and more. You can also syncronize your cell phone with a voice recognition hands free phone system in the car.

If you move to the SL model of the MAXIMA, you will find additional features like dual Panoramic Moonroof, Bose Premium Audio System, Bose Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)’ Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) AND Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) with Forward Emergency Braking (FEB).

For the driver who likes a sportier feel, the SR model comes with upgraded leather seats accented with diamond Alcantara inserts. The two front seats are climate controlled. It has Paddle Shifters, 19” diamond-cut Wheels and LED low-beam headlights.

The PLATINUM trim is unique with its Power Tilt and telescopic steering wheel and superior leather appointed seats with diamond pattern. It is also configured with Around View Monitor, Rear Window power Sunshade and memory system for Driver’s seat, steering wheel and outside mirrors. With the NissanConnect in this trim, you can unlock, lock and even start the car engine from anywhere in the world from your mobile applications.
