The 2015 Nissan Maxima is going to be a brand new model from Nissan that will feature a brand new platform that is somewhat related to the GT-R. That means that we can expect it to be faster and meaner than the previous generation. The car will be restyled to have more aggressive look than the current generation. According to some rumors, we could expected to see it on the market sometimes next year. The base price of this car will be around 33.000$ which is almost 2000$ more than that of the previous generation.
Exterior of 2015 Nissan Maxima
This is where the 2015 Nissan Maxima shines. It now gets styling cues from its bigger brother, the GT-R, the result being a much more aggressive looking car. Both the front and rear lights feature LED strips for better visibility and lower energy consumption. Also at the back we can find the dual exhaust and the rear diffuser which makes us think that it will be really fast!.
2015 Nissan Maxima Interior
From the pictures Nissan released we can see an interior that features 4 individual seats, a 7 or 8 inch display for the satellite navigation system as well as full leather interior. The car also gets a massive moon-roof that can be opened up.
2015 Maxima Nissan Specs
Because Nissan hasn’t said anything about what type of engine this car will feature we can only assume what it can be. Some reports said the car will carry over the previous 3.5 liter V6 with 290 horsepower while others said that the car will feature a brand new turbocharged unit that will most likely be a V6. This will provide around 350 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque thus making it one of the most powerful sedans in its class.
While the previous Maxima was a front wheel drive car the next model will most likely be a rear wheel driven car. This means that it will not only be sportier and better to drive but it will also be more fuel efficient and much more precise. The previous CVT gearbox will be changed to either a 6 speed automatic transmission or to a 9 speed automatic that is set to debut next year on the rear wheel driven cars.
Fuel consumption will most likely be better than that of the current model thanks to the turbocharged engine and the new transmission. Also, performance wise the car will be much more composed and it will be able to get to 60 MPH in just under 6.5 seconds. Top speed of the new 2015 Nissan Maxima will most likely get limited to 155 MPH.
