The 2020 Nissan Maxima: A Spacey Sedan

The large sedan market is often overlooked by those wanting more space to carry both passengers and cargo. Many assume that space can only be had in a minivan or SUV. The 2020 Nissan Maxima is here to prove everyone wrong. This affordable large car has power, safety, and reliability in addition to plenty of space to carry the entire family (and all their stuff).


2020 Nissan Maxima Interior




The 2020 Nissan Maxima comes in three model versions: SL, SR, and Platinum. The introductory model, the SL, starts at $41,140. This base model offers performance, power, and opulence. For the base price with no extra options added on, drivers can get heated front and rear seats, a dual panel power panoramic moonroof, and an 11-speaker Bose premium audio system.




Many safety and driver-assistance features come standard across all 2020 Nissan Maxima models, including blind spot warning, lane departure warning, intelligence forward collision warning, and more. The lowest-priced SL model does not come with pedestrian detection or lane departure prevention, but all other safety features come standard at no additional price.


Under the Hood


All models of the 2020 Nissan Maxima are built with a 3.5-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. All Maxima models are front-wheel drive (FWD) and feature an Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT). The V6 engine results in a fuel economy of 11.6 L/100km in the city and 7.9 L/100km on the highway.




The 2020 Nissan Maxima is part of a new generation that began with the 2016 model year, and it received a scrupulous refresh in 2019. For that reason, very little was changed for the 2020 model year. However, for 2020, Nissan made many driver-assistance features standard across all Maxima trim levels, including emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring.


The Maxima outfitted its luxurious and spacious cabin with plenty of soft-touch materials and high-end features. A NissanConnect 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes navigation and an 11-speaker Bose audio system is standard for all models and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for those wanting simple smartphone connectivity.




While large sedans are often associated with boxy tanks driven by an older generation, the 2020 Nissan Maxima is an athletic and peppy offering with aggressive styling and a well-tuned suspension. It corners well and outhandles rivals in its class. The powerful V6 engine allows the Maxima to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.


All 2020 Nissan Maxima models offer great performance, safety, reliability, and comfort. Even the lowest model comes standard with safety, comfort, and entertainment features that other manufacturers would put at an extra cost. This large sedan is a great choice for both families looking for space and business executives looking for style. No matter which model is chosen, all buyers looking for a new large sedan should check out the 2020 Nissan Maxima in Calgary. A large sedan is not a grandparent car anymore.
