The four-door sedan recently arrived on the scene with some discreet changes. Included are the distinguished new front grille, redesigned tail lamps, and wheels sporting a dynamic design that are available in 18- and 19- inch diameters.

The Maxima is sleek on inside as well as the outside. Some models come available in dark piano-hairline trimming and Atlantic cherry wood tone. But for the most part, the cabin is a carryover of the 2011 Maxima.

When it comes to comfort and convenience, this Nissan features the eight-way power driver’s seat; driver’s seat  power lumbar support; four-way power front passenger’s seat; 60-40 split fold-down bench seat; leather-appointed seats; manual tilt/telescopic steering column; AM/FM/in-dash 6-CD changer and MP3 sound system; and leather-wrapped steering wheel, for example.

The Maxima is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that provides 294 horsepower and a peak torque of 261 lb-ft.

As for safety, the Maxima includes anti-lock brakes, stability control, front-impact airbags, side impact airbags, overhead airbags, seat-belt pretensioners, anti-whiplash head restraints, and a security system.

Tracy Nissan features the Maxima along with a full line of sedans and versatile crossovers, trucks and SUVs.
