The Near Perfect 2022 Nissan Maxima Post

Sports sedans come with all the fun of an exciting performance-based car but with the comfort of everyday living. Nissan combined the best of both worlds in their all-new 2022 Maxima which is the best sports sedan that you can find at an affordable price. Join the Maus Nissan New Port Richey team for a detailed walkaround of this near-perfect vehicle.

First Impression

From the get-go, you’ll be impressed with the Maxima’s powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine with 300 horsepower which gives you a top speed of 133 miles per hour. You can go 20 city miles or 30 highway miles per gallon before having to make a pit stop. All trims come with the same engine, and the three trims are as follows:

  • 2022 Maxima SV starting at $37,440
  • 2022 Maxima SR starting at $42,600
  • 2022 Maxima Platinum starting at $42,750

Fluid Handling

The Nissan Maxima drives like butter thanks to the special care that’s been placed on the braking and suspension systems. All trims come with the same set of intuitive brakes designed to listen to your every command when stopping and making turns. The work put into the suspension is like having a copilot adjust the vehicle to your every move as you focus on driving.

Braking System


  • Front and rear ventilated discs
  • 4-wheel anti-lock system
  • Electronic brake force distribution
  • Brake assist
  • Independent strut front and multi-link rear suspension
  • Front and rear stabilizer bars
  • Hydro-electric power steering

The Maxima SR trim is the only package that comes equipped with a sport-tuned suspension with re-tuned dampers, stiffer springs, and a larger front stabilizer bar. This allows for more adaptive handling and the feel of an actual race car.

Intimidating Appearance

Walking up to the Nissan Maxima is exciting on its own with its aggressive exterior features like a muscular frame, dual exhaust with quad tips, and dark trims including tinted rear windows. The SR version has even more black accents and a rear spoiler to really emphasize the bold, sporty look.

The Maxima’s overall look may be dark, but your vision doesn’t have to be thanks to the wide array of lighting. Automatic headlights and high beams make it easy to keep your path illuminated, and LED fog lights are there when you need them most. LED taillights make it easy for drivers behind you to spot you from a distance, and the turn signal indicators on the side mirrors will also let them know your next move.

Luxurious Cabin

While many vehicles focus all of their interior features on the front row of seats, the Maxima pays attention to everyone all around the cabin. Dual climate control with rear ventilation in the center console eliminates the need to fight over who’s hot or cold. The back of the center console also comes with two different charge ports so the rear passengers have unlimited access to their devices. The rear seats can also enjoy a center armrest with built-in cup holders and cell phone slot for a hands-free ride.

Heated leather seats come standard in the front row for comfortable road trips, and the driver’s seat provides special care with 8-way power adjustments and lumbar support to keep you going. The leather steering wheel offers an easier and pleasant grip to reduce hand cramps. There are many more features that come in the SR and Platinum trims such as:

Accommodating Technology

The Maxima’s key fob will feel like a blessing during extreme weather conditions with a start button right on the key to get things circulating as you approach the vehicle. For more ease of access, the Maxima supports keyless enter and has a push to start function. Once you start the car, you can look down to the vehicle display which features both analog gauges and a 7” screen in the middle which displays all current statuses. If that wasn’t enough already, Nissan equipped this sports sedan with enough safety assist features to warrant an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award.

Test Drive the Nissan Maxima Today!

If you’re wondering what makes this vehicle near-perfect, it’s because the Maxima comes with a CVT while some people may prefer either automatic or dual-clutch. However, that’s clearly up to preference and with all of the other amazing features that come with the Maxima we think it’s a small tradeoff.
