2014 Nissan Maxima Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Nissan’s flagship sedan
  • SV trim adds a rearview camera, USB port, and 7-inch color display as standard equipment
  • 19/26 mpg city/highway
The 2014 Nissan Maxima continues to serve as Nissan’s flagship sedan, adding a few new pieces of standard equipment to the SV trim for the new model year.

For 2014, the SV adds a rearview camera, USB port, and 7-inch color display to its standard features list. Also added for 2014 is an optional S Value Package which adds HID headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and several other exterior flourishes.

The Maxima continues to look like a more sculpted version of the Altima midsize sedan, with distinctive details on the hood and a wide rear with taillights that spill onto the sides of the car and can easily be seen in profile. 18-inch alloy wheels come standard, with 19-inch wheels available. A power moonroof is standard to let some rays in on sunny days.

Under the hood, the 2014 Maxima’s 3.5-liter V-6 carries over. It produces 290-horsepower and 261 pounds-feet of torque, and is mated to a two-speed CVT. Optional shift paddles are a must for those who look to drive the Maxima quickly, it gives driver’s much needed control over the shift points for a more spirited driving experience. The Maxima returns 19/26 mpg city/highway and takes premium fuel.

Inside, there are plenty of standard features as expected of a car of this size/price. Power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, push button start, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are all standard. A hard drive navigation system with a 7-inch screen is optional, and includes satellite traffic reports and Zagat restaurant reviews. Heated and ventilated front seats, a Bose premium stereo system, and a heated steering wheel are also available.

Side-impact and side curtain airbags come standard, as do four-wheel disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and traction control, and active front head restraints.
