2011 Nissan Maxima Overview (See Available Styles)

Whether it’s its sleek appearance, good fuel economy, high-tech gadgetry or impressive safety features, there are numerous reasons to like the 2011 Nissan Maxima.

The 2011 Nissan Maxima combines all the features of a luxury sedan with the performance and look of a sports car.  It is offered in two trims: Maxima 3.5 S and Maxima 3.5 SV, which are each equipped with a 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to an Xtronic CVT transmission with manual mode.  The Maxima receives an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway and competes with the Dodge Charger and Ford Taurus.

Along with the two trim levels, there are several packages available (Sport, Premium, and Tech) for the 2011 Maxima that deliver impressive options and features.  The Sport package features a sport-tuned suspension, rear spoiler, high intensity discharge xenon headlights, heated outside mirrors and heated seats.  The Premium package adds a dual panel moonroof with rear roof window and front and rear power retractable sunshades.  The Tech package includes a navigation system with voice recognition, 9.3 GB music box hard drive, XM satellite radio, seven-inch touch screen color monitor and DVD playback capability. Bluetooth® connectivity is standard on all models

The 2011 Nissan Maxima features a wide, menacing grille and boomerang-shaped headlights that embody what Nissan refers to as “liquid motion.”  The Altima sits on either 18- or 19-inch wheels and a power moonroof comes standard.  Two different rear seat layouts are available, including a 60/40 fold-down rear seat with access to the trunk and a fixed rear seat with center armrest pass-through for carrying long items and equipment.  The interior is Infiniti-esque with its leather appointed seating.

Braking is provided by standard four-wheel vented disc brakes with a four-channel, four-sensor, four-wheel anti-lock braking system with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist.  The 2011 Nissan Maxima also features standard vehicle dynamic control with a traction control system, as well as dual-stage front, side-curtain and side-impact airbags.

Enjoy a premium driving experience in every sense of the word without the premium price tag in the 2011 Nissan Maxima sedan.
