2017 Nissan Maxima Expert Rundown Review

BRYN MACKINNON: I'm Bryn MacKinnon, and this is an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Nissan Maxima. One thing we'll say for the latest Maxima is that there's nothing else quite like it on the road. The styling is guaranteed to stand out, especially in the large sedan segment, which isn't exactly known for adventurous design. On the road, the Maxima does its darndest to live up to Nissan's four door sports car label. The driving feel is certainly sportier than the norm, and the big v6 engine's got plenty in reserve. We just wish there was a little less torque steer, which is when the wheel tugs this way and that when you really slam on the gas. It's pronounced in the Maxima, but for some that's a fair trade off for all that power on tap. The back seat is a bit of a disappointment, as large sedans usually have copious room back there, and the Maxima just doesn't. But the real story is up front, where Nissan has created a sports car-like environment for the driver. The center console rises high, and the controls wrap around, making for a cockpit-like feel. There's a great place for your smartphone ahead of the shifter, and the zero gravity front seats are super comfortable. Really nicely done. The bottom line with the Maxima is that it's not for everyone. Many large sedan shoppers will gravitate toward traditional models, like the Buick Lacrosse and Toyota Avalon-- but if you're looking for some uniquely sporty character in this class, this Maxima could be the only test drive you'll need.
