With its captivating performance stance, 19-inch diamond-cut wheels, boomerang signature LED lighting framing the enlarged V-motion grille, the new 2019 Nissan Maxima continues to build on its legacy as the flagship of Nissan’s sedan lineup.

- Newly available Nissan Safety Shield 360 active safety technology and 10 air bags, including front driver and passenger knee and rear seat side supplemental air bags

A Bold New Exterior Appearance, Refined Interior
The 2019 Maxima’s aggressive, updated exterior appearance was created by Nissan Design America in La Jolla, Calif. and
features a more voluminous front grille with a deeper V-motion flow that carries into the hood and down the body to the redesigned rear tail lamps and rear fascia.
The standard jewel-like LED headlights and Nissan Signature Daytime Running Lights, along with the new, deep fascia design, add to the Maxima’s premium, high performance appearance.
The distinctive Maxima exterior continues to stand out in a field of cookie cutter sedan designs. The body is low, sculpted and streamlined to achieve a sweeping aerodynamic profile that has more than a little jet fighter look to it. To bring all this inspiration to life, a special metal stamping technique was developed, adding the distinctive powerful gesture to its bodyline and deeply scalloped doors.
The highly distinctive Maxima profile comes from its floating roof appearance with blacked-out A-pillars similar to the Nissan GT-R. Combined with the same blackout treatment applied to the B- and C-pillars, it creates a wraparound canopy appearance.
The upper canopy look is accented with an available Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof (standard on SL and Platinum grades, optional on SR), which gives front and rear occupants an uninhibited view of the sky.
In the rear, the new fascia includes integrated quad-tip exhaust finishers, while a new sport rear spoiler is also added to the Maxima SR grade.
New wheel designs have been developed for all five Maxima grade levels – capped off by the new 19-inch Hyper Silver Platinum Reserve Package wheels.
In addition, a new premium exterior paint color, Sunset Drift, has been added to the Maxima color palette. Six other exterior colors are available: Super Black, Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Deep Blue Pearl, Pearl White TriCoat (premium color), Carnelian Red Tintcoat (premium color).
Inside, the dramatic Maxima body is a driver-oriented cockpit and comfortable seating for all five occupants. Enhancing the Maxima’s already high level of quality and premium luxury appointments is a new seat insert pattern and charcoal headliner and pillars for SR grade and Platinum Reserve Package.
The Platinum Reserve Package is highlighted by special Rakuda Tan semi-aniline leather appointments, similar to that available on the Nissan GT-R Premium Interior Package.
The Platinum Reserve Package interior also offers Satin Bronze faceted interior finishers, Rakuda Tan steering wheel insert for a two-tone appearance and heated rear seats.
