Although the 2016 Nissan Maxima is a far-cry from a sports car, Nissan continues to push its marketing tactics to instill this image upon its buyers and for good reason. The main elements of a sports car are a good engine, a balanced chasis and handling abilities. The Maxima might make a case for its self but it never will be a sports car.
Hold on, what if we make the car black on black? Yes, with the 2016 Nissan Maxima Midnight Package you will get a charcoal leather trim interior with Alcantara inserts, a full on black exterior, aggressive rocker panel moldings, a subtle rear spoiler, 19 inch wheels and LED headlights all of which will be added onto the 2016 Nissan Maxima SR which turns it into the Midnight Package.
The 2016 Nissan Maxima Midnight Package gets alot of black on the inside too to match the Super Black exterior paint, yet nothing has been done to improve the 3.5 liter V-6 that produces 300 hp routed to a CVT transmission that moves the front wheels. I can hardly understand how Nissan is making a case for the Midnight package as a sportier equivalent of the standard SR Maxima without any power upgrades or even exhaust upgrades..
The 2016 Nissan Maxima Midnight Package will be making a debut at Los Angeles this week during the company’s four-day BET Experience sponsorship. Prices should see a small increase over the 2016 Nissan Maxima SR’s price of $38,495.
