You're only human – it's nice to have a little backup when something unexpected happens. Maxima provides a suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility features that can step in and take action to help keep you out of trouble.
Save your bumper. Maxima with Rear Automatic Braking watches out directly behind you for stationary items you might not see. If it detects something and you fail to stop, it can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a rear collision or lessen the severity of an impact.
Stay between the lines. When lane markings are clear, Intelligent Lane Intervention can detect if you're straying out of your lane and can tap the brakes to help gently guide you back.
Go with the flow. Intelligent Cruise Control watches the flow of traffic to take the tedium out of your commute. The system helps maintain an adjustable speed and set distance between you and the car ahead.
Keep your pride and rims intact. Intelligent Around View Monitor makes parking easy with a virtual composite 360° bird's-eye view of your Maxima. You can select from split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views for a better look. It also gives you an on-screen heads-up when it detects moving objects near your vehicle. We're looking at you, shopping cart.
What's up ahead? Maxima knows. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning watches up to two cars ahead, and when it detects sudden deceleration in front of you, it gives you a warning to slow down.
Fear no parking lot. When you're backing out of a space, Maxima with Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Maxima and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side.
Wait. Was that a car over there? Maxima with Blind Spot Warning keeps an eye on the blind spot area and gives you a heads up if it detects a vehicle hiding there.
Standard High Beam Assist helps out with night vision, while being considerate of your fellow drivers. It automatically switches to low-beam headlights when it detects a vehicle ahead, and turns the high beams back on when you need them.
Available Traffic Sign Recognition keeps you up to date with the latest speed limit by detecting road signs as you go.
Time for a break? Standard Intelligent Driver Alertness monitors your steering patterns and if the system detects you might be getting drowsy and need a break, then alerts you with a chime and a coffee cup icon on your display.
Whether it's stop-and-go traffic, your favorite on-ramp, or just an annoying speed bump, Maxima uses technology that works a little magic behind the scenes to help make every drive feel more comfortable, confident, and enjoyable.
When you're connected, getting around is easy. Available Nissan Door to Door Navigation adds directions that move from your compatible smartphone to Maxima's touch-screen seamlessly. If you end up parking several blocks away, it can send a walking route to your phone. Smart tech makes every trip easier, too. SiriusXM® Travel Link helps with information like parking, weather forecasts, sports, movie listings and stocks – even the cheapest gas. SiriusXM® Traffic® keeps you up to date on the best routes.
People to see? Places to be? Just ask Siri®. Equipped with Siri® voice control, Apple CarPlay® brings on board to your Maxima your contacts, favorite messaging apps, iTunes® library, Apple Music® playlists, Apple Maps, and more. Simply plug in your compatible iPhone® and go.
Know where you're going and when. Maxima and Google Maps™ helps you navigate to your next appointment, while Google Assistant keeps you on top of your schedule. Choose a song, change your destination, or respond to a text with your hands on the wheel using the hundreds of available voice commands.
Future-proof your life. Maxima is thinking ahead with USB-C connectivity. No adaptors necessary.
With available NissanConnect Services Powered By SiriusXM®, you have a selection of plans and services like customizable alerts and emergency response.
Using the NissanConnect® Services Skill with Amazon Alexa, you can lock and unlock your doors, flash your lights, even remotely start your engine – perfect for bringing your cabin to your preferred temperature – all with the sound of your voice.

Maxima's premium interior features available quilted inserts, made from premium leather-appointed or Italian-made Alcantara® – a material usually reserved for high-end performance cars. Pair with front Zero Gravity Seats, and you get unmatched interior comfort.
Using the Nissan Intelligent Key®, you can start the Maxima remotely and heat up or cool down the cabin before getting inside. So every time you climb in, it's at the perfect temperature.
Available climate-controlled front seats offer individual heating and cooling for driver and passenger, making comfort as easy as turning a knob.
You like it one way. Your front passenger likes it another. With Dual-Zone, both of you are happy.
Maxima's sports-styled front seats are deeply bolstered to help keep you in place – even during high-G cornering. Plus, inspired by zero-gravity space travel, their natural, neutral seating position can help reduce fatigue.
Never forget something in the back seat again with the innovative Rear Door Alert system. It gives you a visual and audible alert to remind you to check the rear seat.
The Nissan Advanced Air Bag System features front air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. Maxima is also equipped with front and rear seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags. Roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensors help keep you safe.
Under certain hard braking situations, the ABS is able to pump the brakes faster than you possibly can, helping to prevent wheel lockup and allowing you to continue to steer while braking heavily.
If you need to slam on the brakes, Brake Assist detects how hard you're braking, and if it senses you are in an emergency, it helps to apply maximum braking force. The EBD system is designed to send extra force to the rear brakes when there's extra weight in the back.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) helps you maintain your steered path, while the Traction Control System (TCS) helps reduce wheelspin in low-traction situations. And when you have to brake suddenly, the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps you maintain steering control, while Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) sends extra force to the rear brakes to compensate for additional rear passengers or cargo.
This advanced body construction combines impact-absorbing structures with a high-strength cabin, which helps provide protection for you and your passengers.
Maxima's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) lets you know whenever a tire is low. Plus, the Easy-Fill Tire Alert takes the guesswork out of filling your tires, with a beep of the horn once you've reached the correct pressure.
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) is another way we're working to help keep children safe. The LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the back seat without having to use seat belts or a locking clip. Proving our commitment, the Snug Kids® Child Safety Seat Fit Guide lists child seats that fit the rear seats of Nissan vehicles, as well as offers invaluable tips on correct installation.
Under the hood lies its beating heart: Nissan's legendary 300 horsepower, 3.5-liter, VQ V6 engine. From sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, to the high-flow tuned induction system, it's designed to exhilarate from idle to redline.
Adrenaline on tap. Put it in Sport, and you'll sharpen throttle response, steering feel and transmission tuning for a pulse-raising ride. The system even pumps a more powerful engine note into the cabin, thanks to available Active Sound Enhancement.
Engineered to satisfy even the most die-hard enthusiast, Maxima's next-generation Xtronic CVT features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. The result is a more connected, spirited driving experience – all without sacrificing fuel economy.
Maxima's independent multi-link rear suspension with monotube shocks equals exhilarating performance and a more comfortable ride. And a lowered stance isn't just for looks, it gives you the handling and response you'd expect from the 4-Door Sports Car®.
Get smoother deceleration when cornering or coming to a stop. Intelligent Engine Brake uses the Xtronic CVT to apply engine braking, helping you to avoid stopping short. And helping to keep your bag from flying off the passenger seat.
Enjoy hugging curves with handling that feels effortless. Intelligent Trace Control monitors the situation and, if needed, can brake each wheel individually to help you steer smoothly through the corners.
Bump? What bump? Active Ride Control can automatically apply the brakes and adjust engine torque to smooth out your ride, turning those mountains into molehills.
Go take on your favorite roads. [*]Maxima SR features a track-inspired suspension with stiffer springs and a larger front stabilizer bar.
The unique double-spoke wheels are at the intersection of sport and style.
A subtle design cue that makes a major statement.
Nissan Maxima SR's premium interior features dynamic diamond-quilted inserts, made from premium Italian-made Alcantara® – a material usually reserved for high-end performance cars.
The paddle shifters are mounted on the steering column, so they're always within easy reach – even on corners when Maxima's steering wheel is clocked 90° – making the perfect gear ratio just a fingertip-blip away.
Maxima SR elevates all parts of your drive with these additional features:
