This year, Nissan is celebrating four decades of the Maxima’s performance and innovation. Like a fine wine, the 2021 Nissan Maxima is aging gracefully. Let’s take a look at what the reviews are saying about this redefined classic.

Life moves at a fast pace. Luckily, so does the 2021 Nissan Maxima. Starting at $37,090, Car and Driver describes this quick full-size sedan to “move with purpose” because of its 300 horsepower and dynamic blend of “performance and efficiency.”

Nissan offers the Maxima in three trims - SV, SR and Platinum. An added bonus to the Platinum level is the addition of an exclusively designed 40th Anniversary Edition. Intended to celebrate Maxima's sports car history, this high-end Platinum trim exudes class. Black exterior trim complements the Ruby Slate Gray Pearl paint and customizes badging. Inside you’ll find standard features like smoked chrome trim, heated rear seats and white gauge faces.

All models come standard with a 3.5L V-6 engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive to guarantee a smooth ride. You can expect 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The standard features party continues with a 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite radio compatibility. Inside the Maxima, Motor Trend found an interior that feels “modern and high quality.” Featuring seats for five with “an astounding 45 inches of legroom up front and 34.2 inches in the rear” for maximum comfort. Car and Driver also adds that “the system provides vehicle monitoring, remote access, and emergency services. Parents of teenage drivers may appreciate the speed, boundary, and curfew alerts, and the system automatically contacts emergency services when the airbags deploy after an accident.” Peace of mind at every turn.

With five star ratings in both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s frontal crash and rollover tests, U.S. News confirms that safety is still at the heart of every Nissan vehicle. Blind-spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning are just a few of the driver-assist safety features that can be found within the Nissan Safety Shield 360, which is standard on all models. Drivers should also take note of the three year/36,000 miles basic warranty and five year/60,000 miles powertrain warranty.

The 2021 Nissan Maxima is a driving enigma offering both sass and safety. If you’re looking for an adventure, might we suggest the Maxima? Check out Maus Nissan of Crystal River’s inventory today or call us at (352) 592-6287 to schedule a test drive.
