For years, Nissan Maxima has been considered one of those mediocre sedan cars. It is not bad or worse than other sedan series in the market.
But at the same time, there is nothing special about the car, no matter how Nissan has tried to develop new variants from time to time. The demands are still high but mostly come from car rental or taxi companies.
Such an image of the Nissan Maxima may make the company think twice about continuously developing the series. There is even a rumor that the production of the Nissan Maxima will be stopped soon.
The company has planned to design the replacement, but in 2024, you may still watch the last variant of the series. Yes, it is the 2024 Nissan Maxima.
Some other rumors also said whether the 2024 Nissan Maxima would be the key if the series will be continuously produced or not. Sure, it is by seeing the market and people’s responses. The product itself has not been available in the market. But the previews are all around with specs as follows.

Redesign Exterior & Interior
The New 2024 comes with the idea of a sporty sedan with four doors. The highlight of the car is not only about the high technology applied. More than that, the exterior is also designed to be cooler than the previous variants. A new exterior color is introduced, it is Scarlet Ember Tintcoat to replace Carnelian Red Tintcoat.
There are 3 ranges in the newest Maxima series: SV, SR, and Platinum. Generally, the exterior design looks sharper. It also makes the car look slimmer from the outside, although when you come inside, it is spacious enough.
The exterior design is more futuristic, competing well with other sports sedans. Whether or not Nissan will stop the production of the Maxima series, this last product brings a little optimism. At least, if the 2024 Nissan Maxima is the last variant from Maxima, it is far better than its predecessors.
Inside, Maxima offers a space for 5 people in the cabin. The materials of the interior are soft and smooth to add comfort for passengers. Sure, it is no longer a big problem in case you must bring children or the elderly with you in the car.
There is a wider area for feet in the front seats. Besides, the cabin is also made to be higher so that there is more space for heads. Unfortunately, the area of the rear seats is not as wide as the front one. Well, it is although you cannot say that the space is too narrow either.
Front seats are also more manageable. The driver is spoiled by some sophisticated stuff such as a steering wheel with a leather cover and a shift button, 2-zone automatic climate control, a rearview mirror with an automatic dimmer, and the standard start button.
All the things inside the cabin seem perfect until you see the car trunk. It is very small although there are cubbies added to load luggage. You can also fold the rear seat to load more things inside.
New Standard Features
The 2024 Nissan Maxima uses a standard infotainment system and an 8.0-inch touchscreen. Although the car uses touchscreen technology for all activities inside, Nissan also provides a redundant button in the middle. It is to ease the driver to set audio volume and others without losing focus when driving.
Furthermore, the infotainment system has more features, including vehicle monitors, remote access, and emergency service. Do you want to control your teenage kids when driving? Well, here are for you, the alerts for speed and boundary and an automatic system to call service for accidents.
Safety and Driving Assistance
The technology applied for the car’s safety is also considered standard. It means many more cars in the same class with more sophisticated features.
The New Nissan Maxima features the standard automatic emergency brake, adaptive exploration control, and the standard forward collision warning.
Under the Hood
There is no exact information about the engine to use in the 2024 Nissan Maxima. It is predicted that the car will still use the VQ35DE V-6 engine with 3.5 liters. If the prediction is accurate, it means that the power produced by the car will be pretty small. The engine only produces 300 horsepower and 354 Nm.
The CVT gearbox is the old feature in Maxima’s newest variant. Indeed, the feature is very beneficial in saving fuel. However, for the sports car, it is considered not suitable. Since the engine system sounds standard, it seems not too late to wish that Nissan will consider using another more powerful engine system.
2024 Nissan Maxima Release Date & Price
The 2024 Nissan Maxima is said to be released at the end of 2023. The details of the date have not been known yet, but there is a rumor that it will be around November.
Of course, there are some possibilities that the launch will be delayed. In case it is true, Nissan promises it will not be too far from the original release date. Yes, the car series will be on the market at the beginning or the middle of 2024.
For the price, there also has not been any official release yet. But considering some aspects, including the features added to the car, the global price will be from $49,700 to $59,800. There are possibly some surprises later about the Price and features. So, just wait for it.
