Nissan Teases The Refreshed Nissan Maxima 2019


The current 2018 model is powered by a 300-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 coupled to a CVT sending power exclusively to the front wheels and starts at $33,270. With the completely redesigned 2019 Altima offering way fresher sheet metal, the option of all-wheel drive, and a lower price, we have a hard time figuring out why one would opt for a Maxima rather than its mid-size sibling bar that naturally-aspirated V-6. Fun fact: the Maxima doesn’t even have the size advantage over the Altima anymore with the 2019 mid-sizer boasting a longer wheelbase (111.2 vs. 109.3 inches), more backseat legroom (35.2 vs. 34.2 cubic inches), and a fraction of an inch more overall height than its “big” brother.
