We saw how much of the 2016 Maxima’s exteriors were based on the Sport Sedan Concept. However, the subtle design cues don’t just end with the exteriors. The 2016 Maxima has borrowed quite a few cues for the interiors as well.
For instance, the instrument cluster and dashboard are, pretty much, identical replicas of the ones found in the concept vehicle. The only difference is that, here, there are actual production features in place, such as the HVAC vents, functional knobs and buttons.
There is a lot going on at the center console as well. You have fixtures such as the start/stop button, more knobs, cup holders, and a new gear shifter. Despite all these fixtures, the Maxima’s interiors still look well organized and very premium.
The center stack is also angled towards the driver up to about 7 degrees. Apparently, this has been inspired by the GT-R’s center stack positioning. The console gets a touch of luxury as well, with side padding and contrast stitching. This is something you’ll find even on the door and instrument panels.
Nissan’s Zero Gravity seats with bolsters on the side come as standard on the 2016 Maxima. Also, they have 8 and 4-way adjustment options for the driver and passenger, respectively. The seats are also much softer now, thanks to an innovative 3-layer foam design.
On the base models, premium cloth serves as the wrapping material for the seats. On the higher trims, Nissan has used Ascot leather and standard leather. Alcan Tara is also offered as an option for select surfaces in the cabin.
