Overview (Final Score: A)

The 2018 Nissan Maxima is unusual in the segment in that it competes on both the standard, workaday level of mid-priced sedans and on the more premium level of upper-crust sedans. The Maxima is also larger than a midsize sedan, but not quite as large as a full-sized offering.

Chief among the Maxima’s many strengths are its upscale looks, sporty appeal, and versatility as a sedan. There aren’t a lot of changes for the 2018 model year, but Nissan did add a new SR Midnight Edition with blackout styling looks, and the forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking that became standard mid-year in 2017 carries forward as standard for 2018 as well.

The 2018 Maxima is more upscale and sporty than most sedans in its segment. This five-seat, nearly full-sized sedan is sold in five trim levels, from the base S to the top-level Platinum.
