Special features for 2008

Nissan's 2008 Maxima sedan straddles the line between luxurious and sporty, and makes a strong design statement with its chiseled appearance and showy wheels. The Maxima offers many luxury features not found on other vehicles in its price range, and its powerful V6 engine, which is shared with the 350Z, makes the Maxima feel sportier than other upscale sedans in the same segment.
Relatively unchanged for 2008, the four door Nissan Maxima Sedan finds itself somewhere between mid-size Sedans and near-luxury Sedans, with seating capacity for up to five passengers and solid power under the hood. It’s offered in SE and SL trims, with a 255 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to a 1-speed Continuously Variable transmission under the hood. Luxury amenities include dual zone auto climate control, cruise, keyless entry, navigation, heated lumbar memory seats, a trip computer and AM/FM/CD/MP3/Satellite audio. Safety features include airbags and ABS brakes.
