2016 Nissan Maxima first drive: Return of the four-door sports car?
The Nissan Maxima is easing into its eighth generation with a complete redesign, one that seeks to recapture the “4 Door Sports Car” character of previous models. The nameplate has been around since the last days of Datsun, and as it has grown over the years, it has taken on a wider range of competitors.
Design is one area that the new Maxima wants to be known for, and the eighth-generation sedan has stayed remarkably close to the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept car that previewed the production version, appearing at the 2014 Detroit auto show. Aside from adopting the new V-Motion corporate grille, seen on the redesigned Rogue and Murano, the Maxima sports flowing yet angular character lines leading from the nose to the very back of the car, topped with a floating roof that was previewed on the concept car. V-shaped headlights have become longer and sharper since the last time we saw them on the outgoing model, with the new sedan sticking with the boomerang shape for its taillights as well. Both headlights and taillights incorporate LED elements, with the former serving as daytime running lights.
