2017 Nissan Maxima earns five star safety rating

The 2017 Nissan Maxima has been awarded the highest safety rating available from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. So not only does this Nissan look the business, drive supremely well and have a nice cabin, it will also keep you safe too!

The 2017 Nissan Maxima earned five stars in front, side and rollover crash tests, which is great news for buyers. The other U.S. safety organisation, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has yet to test the new Maxima but we doubt its findings will be any different.

The Maxima does take safety seriously. It comes complete with six airbags, antilock brakes, brake assist, vehicle dynamic control and traction control as standard. Optional extras include the Driver Attention Alert system that will wake you up if you drift off, forward-collision alert, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert systems for all round coverage.

2017 Nissan Maxima
The 2017 Nissan Maxima is one of my favourite midsize sedans of this year. It effortlessly combines a bit of sportiness so you can enjoy a little fun on the commute with all the sense and sensibility of a family sedan. Interior space is plentiful, cargo space in the trunk is generous and the engine is as lively as you need it to be.

The design is awesome. A sporty sedan that also looks premium enough to not alienate sensible drivers. Nissan have done a good job balancing the needs of the many here and it shows. Simple lines, shaped panels, a front end that means business and a rear end that rounds off what is a well-considered design.

Inside, Nissan deliver an interior they have become world famous for. Well proportioned, high quality, comfortable and quiet. Everything you need is a family car. The soft touch materials are excellent, while the driver’s position is both comfortable and commanding.

Under the hood is a 3.5-litre V6 engine that produces 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque. It uses a CVT transmission to send power to the front wheels. The engine is responsive, quiet and gets decent gas mileage too. The CVT transmission continues improving year on year and offers a smooth ride that doesn’t leave you hanging.

Overall, the 2017 Nissan Maxima drives well and offers an excellent passenger experience. The design alone is enough to convert non-Nissan owners into the fold, but add the quality of the drive and of the materials and it’s hard to contemplate any other midsize sedan, especially at this price.
