Core Differences

When most people compare the 2016 Nissan Maxima with the 2016 Nissan Sentra, the first thing they note is the obvious difference: they look different on the outside. The Maxima is a midsize sports sedan while the Sentra is a compact car.

Fuel Economy and Power

Nissan is known for its outstanding performance under the hood. The Maxima is the best choice if you want performance and speed. The 3.5L engine provides sophisticated and confident power and acceleration.

If it’s fuel economy that you place most important, go with the Sentra, which boasts an EPA-estimated 40 miles per gallon. If you’re doing a great deal of driving or have a long daily commute, fewer trips to the gas station are always a good idea.

2016 Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima got a complete redesign in 2016 with the look of a sports car. It comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, as well as a host of elegant luxury features including LED tail lights, automatic headlights, a chrome-tipped exhaust, and the ability to put out 300 horsepower from its 3.5L V6 engine. Its EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway/22 mpg city are also quite impressive for a sports sedan with so much power.

The dashboard and cockpit look like something you’d see inside a sci-fi Starfighter, with a 7-inch color display for driver assistance and an 8-inch touchscreen navigation. Features like premium sound, leather upholstery, Intelligent Cruise Control, and ambient lighting add to the smooth feel of this outstanding vehicle.

2016 Nissan Sentra

If it’s economy and reliability you’re looking for, go with the Sentra. Like the Maxima, it received a redesign for the 2016 year and includes 16-inch alloy wheels, as well as automatic headlights and the option for heated side mirrors. Its engine is smaller, a 1.8L 4-cylinder, but it gives you that superior fuel economy in trade.

Inside, you get a four-speaker audio system upgradeable to six speakers, and optional add-ons including NissanConnect infotainment, telematics, and navigation features. In addition, it offers superior safety features, having been a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
