2012 Nissan Maxima Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/maxima/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Nissan
Maxima is one of the more sporty cars that live in the mid-sized car
segment. There is definitely a lot of boring cars out there but Nissan
lives outside the box and the Maxima is a prime example. On the outside the
car features bulging fenders, sharp headlights, an aggressive hood, and
cool 18-inch rims. These design elements make for an exciting mid-sized
Under the hood the 2012 Nissan Maxima rocks the famous VQ series engine.
The V-6 displaces 3.5 liters and puts out a nice 290 horsepower and 261 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is average at 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the
highway. When you step up into the Maxima, Nissan rewards you with all the
bells and whistles. Driving the Maxima is akin to the driving an Infiniti
luxury car. The car is very comfortable and the navigation system is
fantastic. The controls are fantastic, the fit and finish is top notch, and
the display gauges are crystal clear.
The 2012 Nissan Maxima starts at $32,060; but this mid-sized sedan punches
well above its weight. The overall package really works and the strong VQ
engine gives you good bang for your buck. Nissan did a great job of making
the Maxima stand out from the boring mundane crowd.
