Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) announced pricing for the 2013 Nissan Maxima, which is now on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide. Maxima, the original "4-door sports car," offers exclusive features not found anywhere else in Nissan's sedan lineup - including an award winning 290-horsepower VQ engine , a sport tuned chassis and available 19-inch Hyper Silver-finished wheels with optional summer tires. A Dual Panel Moonroof and heated and ventilated driver's seat are available for a unique appearance and added comfort in all climates.
For 2013, a new SV Value Package is offered for the Maxima 3.5 SV. It combines the contents of the Bose® Audio Package and the Cold Package, a $1,500 value, at an M.S.R.P. of $1,000 resulting in a $500 savings. In addition, Maxima receives a significant upgrade to the Sport Package, which now includes the content of the previous Monitor Package in addition to its Dark Hyper Silver-finished 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and climate-controlled seats. One new exterior color, Pearl White, is also offered for the new model year.
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices* (MSRP) for the 2013 Nissan Maxima include:
Maxima 3.5 S CVT: $32,780 USD
Maxima 3.5 SV CVT: $35,080 USD
As Nissan's flagship model, Maxima continues to offer breakthrough sports sedan styling, a driver-oriented cockpit, ample comfort and luxury and an advanced drivetrain anchored by Nissan's legendary VQ-series V6 engine. Maxima is again offered in two models, 3.5 S and 3.5 SV, each equipped with a standard 290-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve VQ-series V6 engine and Xtronic CVT® transmission with available paddle shifters.
Maxima offers a dynamic presence that distinguishes it from other mid-size sedans. The exterior is highlighted by the flow of its powerful and beautiful surfaces, like the undulation of a wave. A unique styling feature is the available Dual Panel Moonroof, which combines a front section that moves like a normal moonroof (positioned farther forward than typical) and a fixed translucent rear section that provides light to rear seat passengers.
Maxima's interior design provides the feeling of a sports car with controls ergonomically close, yet with ample roominess and comfort for both driver and passengers. Comfort and convenience features include 8-way power driver's seat, 4-way power adjustable front passenger seat, dual-zone automatic temperature control, cruise control with illuminated steering wheel mounted controls, Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition, power windows and door locks, AM/FM/CD6/MP3 audio system with eight speakers, Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System and available USB connectivity.
The wide range of available technology includes a Bose® premium audio system, RearView Monitor and Nissan Hard Drive Navigation system with NavTraffic Real-Time Traffic information and NavWeather (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) and Voice Recognition.
Maxima's new SV Value Package features a 9-speaker Bose® audio system, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), heated front seats, heated steering wheel and heated outside mirrors, as well as a new Bose® Audio Package. The Sport Package has been revised for 2013 to add Monitor Package content (7-inch color monitor, USB connectivity, iPod® net in center console, RearView Monitor), plus climate-controlled driver's seat and Dark Hyper Silver-finished 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
