2020 Nissan Maxima vs 2019 Nissan Maxima

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The Nissan Maxima has long remained one of the most rewarding performance sedans on the market. Not only does this four-door sports car offer a fun driving experience, but it also provides excellent comfort on the road. Let’s see how the 2020 Nissan Maxima compares to the 2019 Nissan Maxima.


The 2020 Nissan Maxima returns with the same exciting powertrain. Motivation comes from an award-winning 3.5-liter, DOHC V6 engine. It’s rated to develop 300 horsepower, which enables the Maxima to accelerate to 60 mph in a quick 5.7 seconds. Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission further enhances the sedan’s smooth operation. While the Maxima is robust, fuel economy remains stable. Drivers can look forward to getting up to 30 mpg. For 2020, Nissan’s Integrated Dynamics Control Module now comes standard throughout the lineup. Previously only available on the sporty SR trim, this performance-enhancing feature takes handling to the next level.


Nissan did not make changes to the 2020 Nissan Maxima’s exterior styling. Last year, it received a stunning makeover. New LED headlamps and a more prominent V-Motion grille gave the Maxima an additional wow factor. An updated rear fascia also helped bolster the sedan’s curb appeal. While even the base Maxima S has a striking appearance, upper trims come equipped with a more extensive set of 19-inch alloy wheels. A rear spoiler elevates the racy SR trim’s sleek profile. Some of the electrifying paint options include Sunset Drift Chromaflair, Carnelian Red Tintcoat, and Deep Blue Pearl.


While the 2019 Nissan Maxima was already well equipped, the 2020 Nissan Maxima comes standard with even more great features. Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 system is now found on every trim. It enhances your security by adding several exceptional accident-avoidance technologies. Some of the highlights include automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. For 2020, the SR trim’s previously optional Premium package now comes standard. Buyers will enjoy niceties like a panoramic sunroof and a 360-degree Around View Monitor camera system. Both of these model years come standard with a modern 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support.
