Of course, it’s hard to say how much of this — particularly the headlight design — comes courtesy of any sport package or particular trim level; Nissan didn’t reveal what particular Maxima variant its image shows. The sedan’s cut lines appear unchanged, as does the floating roof appearance courtesy of blacked-out window pillars. The automaker says the Maxima will offer Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology, a package of advanced safety features. On the 2019 Altima and Rogue, Safety Shield 360 constitutes automatic high-beam assist, blind spot warning, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert and rear automatic braking. Nissan announced in September plans to include the package as standard equipment on all top-selling models by 2021.
