2016 Nissan Maxima: First Drive Review

© Nissan North America, Inc.© Nissan North America, Inc.
Chassis and Suspension
Maxima is built on a new platform that utilizes high-strength steel for a 25 percent increase in torsional rigidity and an 82-pound reduction in weight. The front strut and coil spring suspension is mounted to an independent subframe, and at the rear a multilink design includes ZP Sachs monotube dampers usually found in performance applications. The monotube dampers were developed for the SR, but then included for all trim levels. All versions feature 4-wheel discs with ABS, Electronic Brake force Distribution and Brake Assist. Steering is a speed-sensitive hydro-electric system.

  1. I have owned the 2016 Maxima SR for 3 weeks now still learning things. This vehicle being a low profile car Potholes are a Nightmare for this car. I hit a pothole and it hit me BAD in the pocket. Replacing the Rim and Tire $$$$$$

  2. I’m a maxima faithful since the beginning.
    And with each model, they continue to enhance that.
    I’t not perfect, but the stilling is set the car apart.

  3. Wonderful, dramatic styling inside and out. But I notice it is longer than the already long prior generation. With roads so crowded (at last here on the East Coast) why do they make cars (and trucks) larger and larger? How easily can you park this thing?
