2016 Nissan Maxima rated #1 Full Sized Sedan by Car and Driver- Beating out Toyota Avalon, Chrysler 300 and Chevy Avalon!

The Maxima is hardly a four-door sports car but its dramatic styling, comfortable cabin, and extensive list of features make it a compelling choice. There’s a 300-hp 3.5-liter V-6 under the hood but it’s mated to a CVT and drives the front wheels. Navigation is standard, as are two touch screens and dual-zone automatic climate control. Moving up the range adds goodies like semi-aniline leather seats, Bose audio and access to NissanConnect—a full suite of telematics and live concierge services.

Maxima heritage: A look back at seven generations of 4-Door Sports Cars

The 2016 Maxima is the 8th generation of Nissan's iconic 4-Door Sports Car (or 4DSC) - though the term wasn't coined until the 3rd generation 1989 model.
