2016 Nissan Maxima Platinum Edition – The New 2016 Nissan Maxima, a large family Nissan hopes to clean up the long crisis of corporate identity. Such as the Nissan Altima grown in size and stature, the main buyers wonder why the nearly-identical Maxima command a higher price. This luxury car buyers, meanwhile, could get more style and prestige of the entry-level Infiniti.
2016 Nissan Maxima Platinum Edition Redesign
Design is critical to the success of Maxima, and one of the new car has a lot of talent. The production model much like a car show, starting with the trapezoidal grille crowded by chunky, corner element which seems more appropriate for an SUV sports sedan look. Boomerang-shaped lights complement the geometric theme.
Aggressive lines engraved on the front and rear fenders emphasize the muscles ready to pounce. A relatively high threshold line kicks up higher in the back door, where it dovetails with the downward slope of a fastback roof line. Blacked-out A- and B-pillars, and the horizontal lines of black trim on C-pillar, giving the appearance of a canopy floating roof.
In the view of three quarters, dramatic contours Maxima gives the appearance of almost bending. In profile, however, when the undulating curve seems to flatten into character lines, proportion of sheetmetal may look big and fat-rather like those of a sleek crossover.
It’s important, though, is the fact that no one will mistake the Altima 2016 Nissan Maxima for its daily stablemate.
2016 Nissan Maxima Platinum Edition Engine
A heavy updated 3.5-liter V-6 produces 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. This is connected with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a wide gear ratio and shift logic witch get’s more aggressive, the throttle is held open. It also anticipates the needs of a reacceleration in the high-G cornering. There are two driving modes: Normal and Sport. Nissan expects an EPA rating of 30 mpg on the highway.
Front-wheel drive and lack of an all-wheel-drive option-making Maxima of stepping on the foot of Infiniti premium. It’s Nissan Maxima, after all there is a fully independent’s suspension, disc brakes all around, and the 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheel’s as standard’s, with 19 inch variant on some new models.
Nissan has positioned SR models as a serious performance car by removing moonroof on the grounds that it reduces stiffness. SR features paddle shifters, and reducing high-frequency vibration’s of a sport tuned witch suspension with damper chassis as used in the 370Z NISMO.
We have spent all our time in the sporty SR far, and think it makes upgrades and updates need not only to abstain from the Altima, but to place himself in the same consideration set as Acura TLX and Lincoln MKZ. Maxima has a very good ride quality even with summer tires and 19-inch wheels; Excellent tracking, even if the electric power steering is lacking for feedback; and acceleration bold are not hamstrung by its continuously variable transmission (although trust us, Nissan, we are ready to Maxima dual-clutch every time you).

Maxima sports theme continues inside with a dashboard-style oriented cockpit controls for the driver and the steering wheel flat trusted. It is a spacious interior, with front sport seats more firmly devoted to the state than interstate slogs. Rear-seat space is almost unchanged from the Altima, and it was a good call – the amount of head and leg room for six-foot adults will leave their comfortable sitting for hours between Starbucks stopped.

There is no option that stands alone.
All maximas comes with the usual safety features, including seat-mounted airbags and roof-mounted side-impact. But most of driver assists available require an upcharge: forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, drowsiness / impaired driver warning, collision mitigation braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic. The federal government has been crash-tested Maxima and it reached the top five-star results in all key areas.
SR is standard only on some safety features performance-oriented: the active trace control, which applies braking to each wheel so that the car stays on the line angle as driven; Active engine which uses engine braking to slow the car to the desired speed as the driver applies the brakes; and active ride control that smooths the body movement over bumps in the road.
