Engine range for 2016 Nissan Maxima Nismo is still unknown. We assume, same 3.5-l V6 is going to be used again. Transmission is predicted.

    1. The expected price will be between $33.000 and $37.000 depends on trim level.

  5. I have a 2012 Maxima and LOVE it. I haven’t found a car under $50,000 that comes close with their suspension. I drive aggressively and hate body roll, so the Maxima is awesome for me. The engineers get a A+ for sport tuning their suspension. However I HATE the lines on the 2016 Maxima. The lines on the side of the car don’t line up, I think they over-designed it. I have looked at the new Maxima several times and can’t come to buying it. I think the designers should be fired. The Nismo looks great, they narrowed the lines on the front hood which makes the lines more aggressive.
