Nissan and its luxury arm Infiniti have been hard at work lately, especially in the performance segment with the new 2015 Nissan GTR Nismo that boasts numbers only the elite can match, the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge amongst many other concepts.
The thing is, Nissan is claiming that the new 2016 Nissan Maxima will Bring Back the Affordable Sports Sedan in the 2015 New York Auto Show debut with impressive numbers to begin with. The formula was simple; innovate, change and fix everything about the previous generation (7th Gen) Nissan Maxima.
Everything looks better, the cabin is sport and upscale with new materials and metals that provide a comfortable luxurious environment within the interior. The Chassis is now lighter and stiffer, providing for a better ride overall and a much more comfortable drive on the highways.
Now, lets talk about the important bit; the 2016 Nissan Maxima will get a revised & redesigned V-6 powerhouse that produces 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque, which is better than most of its competitors out there like the BMW 335i and the Acura TLX V6. Nissan also decided to use the Bose-equipped models to utilize the company’s active sound enhancement technology to increase the engine note within the cabin, similar to what you would see on the 2015 BMW M5.
