Refreshed exterior and interior
The Maxima’s aggressive, updated exterior appearance was created by Nissan Design America in La Jolla, California. It features a larger front grille with a deeper V-motion flow that carries into the hood and down the body to the redesigned rear tail lamps and rear fascia. The standard jewel-like LED headlights and Nissan Signature Daytime Running Lights add to the Maxima’s premium, high-performance appearance, along with the new, deep fascia design.
The new rear fascia includes integrated quad-tip exhaust finishers, and a new sport rear spoiler is also added to the Maxima SR grade. In addition, drivers can opt for a new premium exterior paint color, Sunset Drift.
Inside, the dramatic Maxima body is a driver-centric cockpit and comfortable seating for all five occupants. Enhancing the Maxima’s already high level of quality and premium luxury appointments is a new seat insert pattern and charcoal headliner and pillars for SR grades. The SR grade features special Rakuda Tan semi-aniline leather appointments, similar to that available on the Nissan GT-R Premium Interior Package.
The interior retains the Maxima’s “Gliding Wing” interior layout which emphasizes horizontal movement and ergonomic, easy access to all controls, but this year’s model offers updated trim finishers and materials. Different grade level offer updated instrument panel, door panels, steering wheel insert, stitching, seat materials, headliner, pillars, and A-pillar speaker grilles to provide a more premium look and feel.
The 2019 Maxima also comes equipped with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, with 8-inch multi-touch color display, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and Streaming audio via Bluetooth®. The new Maxima’s selection of audio and infotainment choices include a Bose® Premium Audio system with 11 speakers.
Nissan Door to Door Navigation adds directions that move from your compatible smartphone to Maxima's touch-screen seamlessly. And, also particularly handy for busy cities, is that if you end up parking several blocks away, the navigation system can send a walking route to your phone.
The one-line destination search simplifies the process of finding a destination by providing a single text box to search for a Point of Interest or address.
Lastly, over-the-air updates allow owners to update the audio unit software and maps via WiFi or a USB device without making a trip to the dealer.
