Nissan Adds a “Four-Door Sports Car” to Its Line
The New York motor show saw the debut of a new-gen Nissan Maxima that the manufacturer’s representatives refer to as a “four-door sports car.” The company noted out that the model looks and is controlled differently from any other car in the segment and that the driver will feel, like in a sports car, when accelerating.
Maxima sedan, built on a new firmer chassis, is fitted with a 3.5-liter 6-cylinder 300-hp engine with an Xtronic variator that is specifically adjusted for active driving. Nissan claims that the engine has been significantly modernized comparing to the previous aggregate of the same volume – over 60% of its components have been replaced.
Dynamic characteristics of the novelty haven’t been announced yet. For comparison, the previous 290-hp Maxima was accelerating from head start to 96 kph in 5.8 seconds. Fuel efficiency of the new-gen model has been improved by 15%, while the average fuel consumption now achieves 7.8 liters per 100 km of milage.
Sedan’s dashboard features a 7” color display, a new multimedia complex on the central console with an 8” screen, Internet access, and access to satellite radio stations.
Also, Maxima now has systems of dead zone monitoring, frontal collision notification, markings control, and active cruise control.
The novelty will arrive to USA dealers this Summer. The model’s prices will start from $32,400.
