As fans asked if Nissan is coming out with a new Maxima for 2023, Nissan announced in September last year that the new 2023 Nissan Maxima, “with a generous V6 horsepower, eye-catching design, and the peace of mind of standard safety technology,” will go on sale September 2022 with a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $38,340 (approximately ₦17,656,720.20). The midsize sedan segment is on fire in recent years as, it seems, automakers are in a race to outdo each other in offering the sleekest and most feature-packed sedan. 

The 2023 Maxima has just one powertrain to boast of, but the automaker is right to use the term “generous” to describe the naturally-breathing 300-horsepower V6 engine mated to a CVT gearbox and front-wheel drivetrain. This makes the new Maxima considerably more powerful than competitors like the 2023 Honda Accord, with up to 204 horsepower, and the impressively stylish 2023 Hyundai Sonata, with up to 290 horsepower. 

The Maxima can sprint to 60 mph in around 6 seconds, which is notably quick for a midsize sedan. The 2023 Nissan Maxima will turn even the most stubborn heads on the streets of Lagos and everywhere else in Nigeria. The car is sleek, stylish, and loaded with features that make it a joy to drive. In this article, we'll take a closer look at the ten best features of the 2023 Nissan Maxima. 

1. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Uses A Powerful Engine

The 2023 Nissan Maxima comes with a powerful 3.5-liter Nissan VQ V6 engine that delivers up to 300 horsepower. Nissan’s VQ V6 engine has retained a slot in Ward Communications, Inc.’s annual list of Ten Best Engines for ten consecutive years. This engine provides plenty of power for merging onto highways and passing other vehicles on the road. 

The Maxima's engine is paired with an XTRONIC continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides smooth, seamless acceleration. With its impressive performance, the new Maxima may get denied the title of a true sports sedan, but you can't deny it's a sporty 4-door midsize sedan. The V6 powerplant delivers strong acceleration and above-average handling. 

2. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Uses A Sport-Tuned Suspension

For the 2023 model year, the Nissan Maxima has an available firmer, sport-tuned suspension intended for folks like us who don't mind trading a bit of ride comfort in favor of sharper handling. The sport suspension isn't standard, which means owners get a Maxima that's impressively quiet on the inside, thanks to the combination of acoustic glass, active noise cancellation technology, and generous sound-deadening materials. 

The Maxima's sport-tuned suspension provides a smooth ride while also delivering responsive handling. This suspension system got designed to help the Maxima hug the road, providing a more confident driving experience. We should note that the new Maxima handle better than many midsize family cars, and you’re right on point to view this car as an attractive bridge between standard and luxury sedans. 

3. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Has A Spacious Interior

With an EPA-estimated 110.7 cu. ft. of interior volume, Maxima's interior is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for passengers in both the front and back seats. 

However, some test drivers thought the cabin feels small, the somewhat high armrests discomfiting, and the footwells intrusive. However, everyone seems to agree the front passengers get decent headroom. The cabin is well-appointed, with high-quality materials and a stylish design. The Maxima also has a large 14.3 cubic feet trunk, providing plenty of space for luggage or other cargo. 

4. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Features Advanced Safety Features

The 2023 Nissan Maxima comes loaded with advanced safety features, including automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring. These features help drivers stay safe on the road by alerting them to potential hazards and automatically applying the brakes in emergencies. 

5. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Are A Welcome Addition To The 2023 Maxima

The Maxima comes with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it easy for drivers to stay connected while on the go. These features allow drivers to access their favorite apps and music directly from Maxima's infotainment system. We should mention that the infotainment system features voice command. 

6. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Features Bose Premium Audio System

The Maxima comes with a Bose premium audio system that delivers high-quality sound throughout the cabin. This is a nice feature that Nigerian audiophiles will find very hard to resist. The Bose system includes 11 speakers and a subwoofer, providing a rich, immersive sound experience. 

7. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Features A Dual-Panel Panoramic Sunroof

The Maxima's panoramic sunroof/moonroof provides a stunning view of the sky above, making even the most mundane drives more enjoyable. This may not sound so cool to many Nigerian drivers who'd very much prefer to hide from the hot sun as much as possible, but evening drives under the panoramic sunroof tell a different story. The Nissan Maxima’s sunroof is large and extends over both the front and rear seats, providing plenty of natural light and fresh air. 

8. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Features LED Headlights

The Maxima's LED headlights provide excellent visibility on the road, making it easier to see and get seen by other drivers. Long gone are those days when certain models of the Honda Accord were “evil spirits” that tormented other road users with their harsh beams. The Maxima’s headlights also have a stylish design that adds to the sedan’s overall aesthetic. We note that it comes with an anti-glare rearview mirror to fend off other “evil spirits” coming from behind. 

9. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Has a Remote Engine Start

The Maxima's remote engine start feature allows drivers to start the car from a distance, making it more convenient to warm up or cool down the car before getting in. We won’t pretend not looking forward to showing off the cool feature on a daily. However, remote start is a practical and functional feature that’s particularly useful during extreme weather conditions. 

10. The 2023 Nissan Maxima Features The NissanConnect Services

The Maxima comes with NissanConnect Services, a suite of connected features that allow drivers to remotely access and control certain aspects of their vehicle. These features include remote start, lock and unlock, and vehicle health reports. NissanConnect Services also includes emergency response services, such as automatic collision notification and roadside assistance. 

Summarily, the 2023 Nissan Maxima is an impressive sedan with a range of features that stand it out in its class. From its powerful engine and sport-tuned suspension to its spacious interior with high-quality materials and advanced safety features, the Maxima is a well-rounded vehicle sure to impress.
