Reviewers wrote that the 2012 Maxima’s V6 engine delivers powerful acceleration around town and on the highway. However, critics reported that the front-wheel drive Maxima can suffer from torque steer, where the car pulls to one side under hard acceleration. Test drivers said the Maxima’s continuously variable transmission (CVT) operates smoothly, though some didn’t think it is a good match for the Maxima’s sporty demeanor. According to the EPA, the 2012 Nissan Maxima gets 19/26 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low for the class. Automotive journalists reported that the Maxima corners nimbly at low and moderate speeds, though it begins to feel a little heavy as speeds rise. They appreciated the Maxima’s light, yet accurate, steering and strong brakes. Most agreed that the Maxima’s ride is generally comfortable, but some commented that the available Sport package doesn’t improve handling much and compromises the Maxima ride quality. Automotive journalists said the 2012 Nissan Maxima has high-quality interior materials, with gauges and controls that are clearly marked, laid out logically and placed close to the driver. Reviewers said the front seats of the Maxima are roomy and supportive and that the rear seat is comfortable. Some also noted that rear-seat headroom is tight for taller passengers due to the Maxima’s sloping roofline. The Maxima has a 14.2-cubic-foot trunk, which is good for the class. Standard features in the 2012 Nissan Maxima include a moonroof, Bluetooth, cloth upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and proximity key. Available features include a nine-speaker Bose audio system, leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, a rearview camera, navigation, a USB port and a 7-inch display screen. Reviewers appreciated that the available navigation system does not complicate audio adjustments. Other Cars to Consider Reviewers said the 2012 Infiniti G has tenacious cornering grip and powerful acceleration with its available 3.7-liter V6. The G is available with all-wheel drive and has standard leather upholstery. The automotive press agreed that the rear-wheel drive 2012 BMW 3-Series is one of the best-handling cars in the class. With either of its turbocharged engines, the 3-Series returns higher fuel economy than the Maxima, and reviewers said both engines deliver powerful acceleration. Compare the Maxima, G and 3-Series »

2012 Nissan Maxima Details Interior Nissan says it wanted the Maxima Sedan’s driver to feel as though he or she were sitting in a cockpit. We think they’ve achieved their intention, although we are pretty sure most pilots will tell you even the 787 Dreamliner’s cockpit isn’t as plush and inviting as the 2012 Maxima. From the premium leather sport seats to the thick-grip steering wheel with paddle shifters, the Maxima’s interior screams “let’s go driving!” Along the way, the Maxima’s impressive array of electronics will aid in your journey. Rich-sounding music emanates from the Bose speakers, while Bluetooth connects you to the outside world. And for those times when you choose to lose the outside world, the Maxima’s cool bird’s-eye-view navigation will help you find your way back. For those along for the ride, there is adequate, but not great, head and legroom in the rear-seat area. Unfortunately, the 2012 Nissan Maxima’s hollowed-out rear seatbacks don’t offer the same firm lumbar support as the excellent front seats, and some of our taller testers found their head brushing against the Maxima’s low headliner. Exterior Defining the 2012 Maxima’s styling as “liquid motion,” Nissan engineers have found a way of incorporating coupelike elements into a mid-size sedan shell. You can definitely see traces of 370Z in the Maxima, especially in the headlight and taillight treatments. The liquid theme continues with a gentle wave connecting the aggressive hood with the bulging front fenders, and continuing rearward where the tapered roofline meets the elegantly sculpted rear end. A subtle spoiler and tasteful chrome accents on the door handles and door surround complete the design. The 2012 Maxima Sedan’s short wheelbase and low, wide body contribute to its coupelike stance and are a significant reason for the Maxima’s impressive handling. Among the Maxima Sport Sedan’s more appealing options is a huge dual-panel moonroof. By allowing the front panel to slide over the fixed rear glass panel, the Maxima’s moonroof can be opened without blocking the rear-seat occupants from the sun’s rays.

Every car company needs a flagship car that represents the company’s core values and true automotive heart and soul. For Nissan, that car is the 2012 Maxima Sport Sedan. While the GT-R may be the superstar of the Nissan lineup, it’s not a car for the masses, nor is it very practical. The 2012 Maxima Sedan, on the other hand, has room for four adults, delivers Z-car-like performance and can be had for around $30,000. Going head-to-head with cars such as the Ford Taurus SHO, Chrysler 300 and the VW CC, the Maxima isn’t alone in its quest for performance-oriented drivers. But, unlike the Taurus and 300, the Maxima retains a mid-size shell that feels more agile and easier to maneuver, more like a 4-door sports car than a large sedan with sporting intentions. We also think that in these tough economic times, those looking at much more expensive premium sport sedans might find the 2012 Nissan Maxima Sedan’s combination of performance, luxury and price compelling.
