Nissan Maxima Miles Per Gallon

The Nissan Maxima sports an EPA-estimated 21 city MPG/30 highway MPG.1 This type of efficiency is seen throughout Nissan brand models, and it makes a car like the Maxima appealing to a variety of drivers, whether you have a long daily commute, or take a lot of road trips.

A lot of the credit for this sterling efficiency goes to the refined Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) that features a drive mode selector. This drive mode selector allows you to switch your driving style to better handle changing exterior conditions. There's also available wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Horsepower and Torque

One of the most appealing aspects of the Nissan Maxima is that it pairs high-end fuel economy with dynamic performance. This performance does well in all scenarios, too, blending in beautifully with city streets or rural back roads.

The engine is a 3.5L DOHC V6 that boasts 300 horsepower as well as 261 lb-ft of torque. To further improve the efficiency under the hood, the Maxima is outfitted with a standard continuously variable valve timing control system on intake and exhaust valves.

Additional perks include a Nissan direct ignition system and electronic drive-by-wire throttle system.

Performance Features

To maximize your fuel economy and high-end performance, the Nissan Maxima comes with other features as well.

For starters, there's a 4-wheel anti-lock braking system, an electronic brake force distribution set up, and standard brake assist, too.

If you run into bumps during your travels, the independent strut front suspension and independent multi-link rear suspension will comfortably absorb the blow. There's also a hollow-tube front stabilizer bar and hollow-tube rear stabilizer bar.

Finally, you can outfit your Maxima with one of three wheel choices. The first are 18-inch machine-finished aluminum-alloy, the second are 19-inch machine-finished aluminum alloy, and the last option are Exclusive Midnight Edition™ black 19-inch alloy wheels.
