Nissan Maxima Performance

2020 Nissan Maxima Performance Specs

To get started, we’ll head right under the hood of the 2020 Maxima and check out the powertrain features.

The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine produces a whopping 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque, and it’s paired with the standard Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), which delivers a smooth and easy-to-handle ride, so you can easily zip all around the city streets.

The Drive Mode Selector allows you to choose between Normal and Sport mode, depending on the conditions you’re traveling through. A front-wheel drivetrain comes standard.

Interior Cabin Dimensions

Now, we’ll head right inside and look at how much headroom, legroom, hip room, and shoulder room your five riders will have within the 98.5 cubic feet of passenger volume.
