You wanted it, folks, and now you’ve got it. There has been speculation for years regarding a total overhaul to Nissan’s famed full-size sedan, and now we’re ready to fill in the blanks. In a short time, drivers will be able to experience the 2016 Nissan Maxima near Houston TX, and they’ll be able to find it at Robbins Nissan. The Maxima has been fully reimagined from front to back, taking several design cues from the updated Nissan Murano. The dynamic exterior lines, the plunging V-Motion Grille, the floating roofline--all of the elements are there. Factor in the impressive, wrap-around interior cockpit, and it would appear that Nissan’s long-under-wraps “sport sedan concept” has fully come to fruition.
The 2016 Nissan Maxima receives its power by way of a 3.5L V6 engine paired with the popular Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The result is a thrilling 300 horsepower, while the CVT allows for dynamic step-shifting and wider gear ratios to offer better fuel economy and distinctive shift spots. Maxima drivers also now receive Drive Mode Selector, which allows operators to shift into Sport mode for added punch at the pedal and a stiffer performance profile.
With the release of the 2016 Nissan Maxima, drivers in the Houston area and beyond now receive a model that is loaded with attitude, performance and features that separate it from the more stoic sedan fare.
We’ll admit it, when we first saw the 2016 Nissan Maxima up close, one of our first questions was, “How much is this going to cost?” That’s because the latest Maxima has been outfitted with upscale upholstery materials and outstanding technology features that blur the line between mass-production and luxury. For its part, the 2016 Nissan Maxima takes certain elements of both categories; it’s affordable, but it’s affordable luxury.
In terms of technology features, the Maxima goes the extra mile here as well. The new Display Commander control system found on the updated NissanConnect apps system makes integration more intuitive than ever before, while connecting to social media and streaming audio is easier than ever too. Meanwhile, the redesigned cockpit takes cues from the Blue Angels jetfighter fleet in its attractive wraparound design.
It’s been a long time coming, but the release of the “sport sedan concept” is finally upon us. Designed with an eye certainly fixed on the future, the 2016 Nissan Maxima represents a breath of fresh air for a staid, stagnant segment, and it promises to be an absolute phenomenon when it arrives at Robbins Nissan in summer of 2016. With performance and style that no competitor can possibly match, its arrival promises to be the highlight of the automotive year.
