With the former version of this beautiful performance sedan having been released in 2016, we are very excited about the next one. It is expected to be released as the 2021 Nissan Maxima. We have reviewed quite a substantial amount of information about this new model. It is quite likely going to have a plethora of interesting technologies. Some of these include the No G-force driving position, custom bucket seats, 4 point harnesses and a larger cabin just to name a few. Here is more about what we have collected about this new sedan.
Judging from the renderings which we have viewed so far of the Nissan Maxima, all its original performance, sports car features have been maintained on its exterior body. However, we presume that the front grille is much more aggressive than in the previous version of the car. It is angled forward such that it scoops up air and drives it directly into the engine compartment to keep the powerplant nice and cool. A pair of fog lights sandwich the front air vent.
From all the images that we’ve viewed, its front air vent features a honeycomb design PVC mesh. It also has a V-shaped radiator grille that is sandwiched by LED headlights. Made with a chrome border, this section features the Nissan logo right in its central part. The headlights have a wrap-around design. This contributes to the aerodynamic nature of this sports sedan. They have a daytime running feature which we hope will make it to the final version of the car.

2021 Nissan Maxima
We are positive that the fenders are muscular. This provides extra room for the 18-inch performance wheels that are expected to feature in the 2021 Maxima. From its side profile, this new sedan is highly likely to have chrome accents on its door handles. The rear view mirrors are also multifunctional. This is because they provide housing for the LED indicators. The A-pillar is slim and swept back. Moreover, its C-pillar is thick and reaches far back into the sedan’s rear. This gives the car a coupe-like appearance. From what we have gathered, it has LED taillights and reflectors on a sporty rear bumper.
From all estimations made so far about the 2021 Nissan, its interior will be driver-centric, futuristic and focused on performance. Referring to the pictures we’ve seen so far of this car, we can confidently predict that it will have a flat bottomed steering wheel. The driver will have some buttons on the upper spokes to control various features in the car.
In a bid to keep up with the technologies that are being implemented in modern performance sedans, we are confident that the 2021 Nissan Maxima will have an LCD display instead of the regular odometer, mileage and rev counter dials.
Within this new car, we predict that the center stack will be supremely minimalist in design. Its highlight is bound to be a 10-inch touchscreen panel at the top of the center stack. It will be manipulated through touch and tactile buttons as well. Drivers and occupants of the vehicle are highly likely to interact with connectivity technologies such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth.
The new sedan is expected to have seats for 5 passengers on 2 rows. They are most likely to enjoy leather upholstery. Nissan also provides options such as Ultrasuede, Alcantara and contrast stitching. Other options include an electronically retractable sunroof and 360 camera views of the car.
Engine and Specs 2021 Nissan Maxima
For many drivers, the powerplant is the most important part of the car. In the new 2021 Nissan Maxima, we are confident that there will be a 3.5-liter V6 engine. It will most likely be capable of 300 horsepower and 353 lb-ft of torque. From all indications, this engine is likely to deliver a mileage of 11.2 mpg on the highway and 7.8 mpg in the city. The engine will deliver power to the wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) system.
Price, Release Date, and Availability
We are confident that this high-performance sedan is going to hit showrooms in the later part of 2020. It’s base trim is quite possibly going to retail for $33,000. However, premium trims such as the Platinum will retail for $40,000.
