The Nissan Maxima doesn’t often get the attention and appreciation that it deserves. Starting at $33,270, power for all models comes from a 300-hp normally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 that’s paired with a continuously variable transmission, helping the Maxima achieve 25 mpg combined. The spritely engine works in tandem with the Maxima’s excellent handling to make it notably fun to drive for a big front-wheel drive car.
It’s certainly one of the best options out there, but just in case it isn’t right for you, there are other models on the market. To help you find the best option to fit your needs, the editors at Autobytel have created a list of 10 Nissan Maxima competitors to consider.
