Firstly, the Nissan Maxima competes with the likes of the Kia Optima and the VW Passat. Both these cars are considered stellar cars. In fact, the Kia Optima is probably one of the most feature loaded vehicles you’ll ever come across. It’s got seats that can be cooled or heated, a user friendly infotainment system, a nice sunroof, and a whole lot of other goodies.
But, once you step into the 2016 Nissan Maxima, the Optima feels ancient and we’re not even comparing it with the top end Platinum variant of the Maxima. To begin with, the Maxima’s interiors are, simply, far more tasteful.
The back is roomy enough to convince you that you’re in a classic British or German luxo-barge. The exteriors of the vehicle are outstanding as well. Though, it may not cater to everyone’s taste, there is no denying that the Maxima has more attitude now.
The Maxima is also a big car, but, it doesn’t let the weight or the size hamper its performance. The car is enthusiastic around corners and pretty stable. Of course, there is some mild understeer, due to all the weight being pushed up front. However, things do stay under control as long as you’re under the limits.
