2010 Nissan Maxima right mix

Nissan s flagship sedan was completely revised year, and if it wasn t already by two of our writers I would have it as well. You see, I was totally with the 2009 model I at that time, and now once thoroughly satisfied with the

The 2010 model is a near of the 2009, which was expected. And as far as I m I m hoping Nissan doesn t a thing for a long time, at when it comes to styling. The had been an oddball design for opting out of the mainstream since the 1989 through 1994 sedan exited stage and the less appealing 1995 1999 fourth-gen car appeared.

It got in its fifth iteration, somewhat and bulbous, while the sixth-generation sold from 2004 2008, was probably Nissan s offering, but pretty cool in its own with a uniquely shaped grille, vertical headlamp teardrop taillights, and an otherworldly vertical glass fixed the spanned the full length of the With the 2009 and current Maxima, Nissan got styling right. It s totally unique, anything else on the road, but it s right and 100% attractive nose to tail.

Of course, not everyone will with me, although if everyone had taste Oscar Meyer be out of business.

The new car offers up a radically grille opening with chrome ribs and the Nissan front and centre, while one of the distinctively shaped headlamp graces each front just below Infiniti sculpted fenders. Strong lines mirror its coke fender flares, giving the Max an shape, while attractive lenses and a bustle-back trunk a small lip spoiler deliver a rear end treatment. My test car was in a new colour for 2010, dubbed Gray, while Crimson also joins the nine-colour

One of the reasons the new Maxima looks balanced is its new tighter dimensions, the car having had nearly four (100 mm) of body length The roof was lowered by a half (12.7 mm) too, giving a profile, while those bottle wheel flares the car s width by a manageable 1.5 inches mm) for a stronger visual presence and road manners. The new Max s 1.9-inch shorter wheelbase contributes to more direct turn-in any noticeable loss in ride or rear seat legroom. At not noticeable to me, but then again don t lie.

The new Max is down some 1.2 inches mm) in rear legroom, a significant in some cars, but the outgoing was a full-size sedan with a than adequate allotment at its Believe me when I say, you re not to miss 1.2 inches in the new Maxima.

It s an back seat for sure, but the s seat is where you ll want to your time. At first only the Nissan symbol on the wheel hub will let on that you re not in an which is a good thing the Max has to fight it out with some heady competition in the full-size brand class. Toyota s in need of another update, isn t in the Maxima s premium-like class, but s new Genesis is when it comes to quality and surpasses the Nissan in dynamics, while other like Mazda s new 6 and VW s slightly Passat will have you like you ve sprung for more car their humble badging

The Max is my favourite of all, however, it mixes extremely good fit and finish and high-grade materials a truly contemporary design. s no gauche faux wood, Hyundai, and the genuine aluminum and top-tier switchgear will you wondering why you should bother an Infiniti. In this respect the Max covers territory the old Infiniti used to occupy, a Maxima-based sedan designed to fight it out Lexus ultra-popular front-drive ES; and a car dropped after model 2004 in an effort to build a brand identity based on level (rear- and all-wheel performance.

So, why buy an Infiniti? Nissan to call its Maxima a four-door car, but sorry guys I m not buying it. The Infiniti G37 is a four-door car in every respect, but the Max is a bit too large, too and its Xtronic continuously variable (CVT), despite paddle-shifters actuate artificial shift to mimic a torque-converted automatic, is a bit too to feel sporty.

Like all CVTs, wonderfully transmissions that optimize economy at the expense of that and shift-interval snap we ve all become to in modern-day automatics, the Max suffers the rubber band effect of a never really finding a gear.

Connected to that transmission is Nissan s award-winning 3.5-litre VQ-series V6 making 290 at 6,400 rpm and 261 lb-ft of torque at rpm. It s a large car, not too heavy at 1,627 kilos lbs) which allows for spirited acceleration and reasonable economy at 10.8L/100km in the city and 7.7 on the I should mention that the new Max is up 90 kilos (200 lbs) the old one despite its smaller dimensions, doesn t help the situation, the added weight helps it to solidly planted on the road, and Teutonic than its predecessor

I m a bit surprised that Nissan t adapted the all-wheel drive used on its Murano of its top-line as the sedan is based on the same Of course, this would put the up, but it would certainly make the Max desirable amongst sport enthusiasts who would rather the rear wheels join in a push than only the pulling. The car rides on a set of standard all-season tires on alloy but mine wore the optional all-season rubber, and the wheels fabulous.

The Maxima features a assortment of luxury features, of even in base guise, as leather seats with actuation up front, automatic climate control, a tilt/telescope steering wheel with audio controls, proximity keyless access and ignition, and a glass sunroof. Four packages are available too, Sport, Premium, Technology and The Sport Package adds the 19 rims, a rear deck lid stiffened suspension, a host of upgrades and other go-fast while the Premium gets a panel glass sunroof, camera, rear window climate controlled front and more.

The Technology package adds a system, 9.3-gig hard audio storage system, etc, and the Navigation package everything the Technology package has the rearview monitor.

Standard features include four-wheel with ABS, traction and control and other electronic to keep this car shiny up, while a full allotment of protect both rows.

the 2010 Nissan Maxima is the nameplate s best iteration and certainly worthy of consideration.
