Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 530 than the Nissan Maxima. The Nissan Maxima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 530.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 530 and the Nissan Maxima do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.
