The #Nissan 2019 Maxima’s look kicks off with a new front-end design featuring revised LED headlights with LED accents.
The #Maxima offers a more comprehensive suite of active-safety features, called Safety Shield 360, which brings blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beams as standard equipment. They’re standard only on the SR Premium package and the Platinum. Adaptive cruise control and traffic-sign recognition are optional and now available on lesser trims, while a driver-attention monitor becomes standard for all.
There are no significant mechanical changes for the 2019 Maxima, which continues to offer a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 300 horsepower and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) as its sole powertrain option. The V-6 will set the Maxima apart now that the Altima has transitioned to a turbocharged four-cylinder as its upgrade engine. The 2019 Maxima goes on sale in mid-December.
