Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, although the SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide variety of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2019 Nissan Maximas. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2019 Nissan Maximas is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to select from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2019 Nissan Maximas with a four-cylinder engine or even a stronger V6, or you will get the miserly 2019 Nissan Maximas Hybrid. On the highway, the 2019 Nissan Maximas is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Nissan Maximas also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Nissan Maximas with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2019 Nissan Maximas supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you go with one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to select from along the way.
The 2019 Nissan Maximas is really as competent while they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely simple to drive. If you’re looking for something with much more class and space than the usual small sedan, the 2019 Nissan Maximas might you need to be the sedan for you.
The 2019 Nissan Maximas is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2019 Nissan Maximas Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features on the upper trim levels may be added to the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Nissan Maximas stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Nissan Maximas features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so the front seat need not be scooted all the way forward.
