2009 Nissan MaximaThe new Maxima gets a curvy body and borrows some cabin flavor from Infiniti.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 [ Background Music ] >> This new Nissan Maxima really seems to take some in Infiniti DNA. Now, power comes from Nissan's well-regarded V6 but now 290 horsepower and a CVT automatic carries over. The front end is quite different though, sort of notchy headlights and the whole car looks more sinuous and less blocky. This 4DSC badge on the rear window reminds us that Nissan still pushes this whole four-door sports car schtick. Inside, the family resemblance to Infiniti is pretty strong. Look at that nav rig, interface controller, and HVAC controls, very Infiniti G. And the sort of goofy, bug-eyed instrument pod carries over from the previous Maxima. [ Music ]
