2013 Nissan Maxima Review
2013 Nissan Maxima Reviewed
The 2013 Nissan Maxima is here! This latest model in the Maxima line features an updated stylish interior and plenty of extended standard features. So if you are interested in test-driving or purchasing the 2013 Maxima, read on as we review Nissan’s newest model.
Under the hood, the Maxima is equipped with a 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter, V6 engine. This modest powerhouse may not give the shear muscle of an exotic car, but is quite ample for its class and size. Optional steering-wheel paddle shifters and a manual sports mode offer even more control and quickness. Fuel economy is an average 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway in this “4-door sports car.”
This year’s Maxima features a stylish interior scheme. With an assertive yet curvy cabin style and well-arranged colors, this interior could be right at home in a high-end luxury make. The instrument panels, HVAC knobs, and other controls are also well-arranged and nicely displayed. The back seats will comfortably seat three people.
Moving to the Maxima’s exterior, the quality design and styling continues. The low hood line, sweep-back stance, and strong 18-19 inch wheels scream assertion and power. Meanwhile, just the right curves and lines provide the appropriate addition of refinement and style. Inside and out, this year’s Maxima certainly brings a new level of style.
As far as ride and suspension, the 2013 Nissan Maxima provides a comfortable passenger experience but can simultaneously hug the road firmly for quick, stable, and aggressive handling. Acceleration and engine power are also adequate. Overall, the feel of the 2013 Maxima may best be described as “confident.”
The base model comes packed with otherwise “non-base” features in most cars. A base buyer can enjoy power seats, power moon roof, intelligent entry, dual-zone climate control, and many other options. If this isn’t enough, the slightly more expensive SV model brings even more bells and whistles such as leather upholstery, a premium Bose sound system, and fog lamps.
In conclusion, the 2013 Nissan Maxima is a very solid purchase. Its array of features, handling, styling, and quality meet and even exceed many expectations. Add in the fact that there are very few negatives to speak of, and you have a winner among the market’s countless 2013 offerings.
