Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

Maxima monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead, and can let you know if you need to slow down. It can also automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks.

Rear Automatic Braking

Rear Automatic Braking

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.

Blind Spot Warning

Blind Spot Warning

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.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

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.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning

Hold it right there. Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. If the system detects that you’re drifting over, haptic feedback on the steering wheel can let you know.

High Beam Assist

High Beam Assist

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.

Intelligent Cruise Control

Go with the flow. Available 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.

Intelligent Forward Collision Warning

What’s up ahead? Intelligent Forward Collision Warning watches two cars ahead, and when it detects sudden deceleration in front of you, it gives you a warning to slow down.

Intelligent Around View® Monitor

Intelligent Around View® Monitor

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.

Anti-lock Braking System

Anti-lock Braking System

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.

Brake smarter

Brake smarter

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 Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) system is designed to send extra force to the rear brakes when there’s extra weight in the back.

Traction Control System

Traction Control System

The Traction Control System (TCS) means you won’t be wasting power just spinning the tires. When it senses driver wheelspin, it responds by reducing throttle or applying brake pressure to specific wheels.

Confidence-inspiring technology
