Even though the Maxima is a stand out in the mid-size sedan market, it's got plenty of competition. If you want to compare the new Maxima to one of its rivals, the 2017 Toyota Camry outfitted with the V6 engine, read on! Let's see how the 2017 Nissan Maxima stacks up against the Toyota Camry V6.
If you have done any research, you might already know that the 2017 Maxima and the Camry come supplied with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine type is standard equipment for the Maxima and is available for the 2017 Toyota Camry XLE and XSE V6 4-door sedan trim levels. The 2017 Toyota Camry V6's 3.5-liter V6 engine gives drivers 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. While thatÕs unquestionably impressive, drivers of the new Maxima have much more to boast about. The 2017 Nissan Maxima's 3.5-liter V6 engine is considerably more powerful than the Camry's. The Nissan Maxima's engine generates a whopping 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. With those kinds of numbers, you might not remember that you are driving a luxurious sedan when you press the gas pedal! The potent 2017 Maxima won't let you down when it comes to fuel economy, either; the EPA-estimates that the new Maxima provides up to 22 miles per gallon in the city and 30 highway miles per gallon. The Maxima also has an 18-gallon fuel tank while the Camry has a 17-gallon tank. Any way you look at it, you will be fueling up more often if you drive the Camry. When it comes to the transmission, the Maxima gives drivers the smooth shifting of the latest Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission). Drivers of the 2017 Camry get Toyota's six-speed automatic transmission. Needless to say, it can't provide the same smooth shifting of the Nissan's Xtronic CVT. When it comes to power and performance, Nissan's new Maxima takes the lead!
Sure, Nissan is renowned the world over for building dependable, high-performing vehicles. But Nissan's new Maxima also offers drivers a plethora of interior tech features that make driving the car even more fun and convenient. Inside the 2017 Nissan Maxima lies a playground built for any technophile, so let's take a look at what this new sedan has to offer, and then compare it to Toyota's Camry. The new Maxima keeps drivers connected with NissanConnect with Navigation featuring Apple CarPlay*. The system includes an 8-inch touchscreen display to put your phone apps, music, and more all at your fingertips! If you are looking at the Toyota, you might notice that there is an available 7-inch touchscreen display, but again, it's optional. Something else you might miss if you buy the Camry is Remote Engine Start with Intelligent Climate Control. It's standard equipment on the new Maxima. Also with the Nissan, drivers get distance pacing cruise control, something that's not available for the Camry. All of the standard features on the Maxima make it a great value, and you don't need to spend any extra money to add features like you would if you bought the Camry.
If you are someone looking for enough room for your growing family, we understand why you are considering the spacious five-passenger Nissan Maxima. If you are taking the family with you, you are probably even more concerned about your new vehicle's safety. The 2017 Maxima offers some fantastic safety technologies and features to help you avoid accidents or mitigate their severity when they can't be avoided. There is an optional Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) system that alerts you to possible dangers ahead of your Maxima. Nissan's Intelligent Brake Assist can help mitigate the severity of an accident or avoid one altogether. You get it on the Nissan Maxima, but it is not available, even as an option, for the 2017 Camry V6. There is nothing more important than safety when you are driving. And while defensive driving is imperative to the safety of you and other drivers on the road, it helps to know your car is well equipped with active safety features that help to keep you and your precious cargo out of harm's way.
When you look at warranty protection, you will find that the Toyota and the Nissan offer similar coverage. But there is a notable exception; the Nissan Maxima gives you a full 36 months of emergency roadside assistance. The Toyota only offers 24 months of emergency roadside assistance. That means you get an additional year of roadside assistance with the Maxima!
Inside the Nissan Maxima, you get more front headroom and legroom than in the 2017 Camry. In fact, the Maxima offers 45-inches of front legroom; compare that to the Camry's 41.6-inches of legroom. As for headroom, the Maxima comes out on top again, providing 39.4-inches of front headroom compared to the Camry's 37.9-inches of headroom up front. Inside the plush new Maxima, you also get front and rear parking sensors to help you avoid bumping into objects in front of or behind your vehicle. These sensors are not offered for the 2017 Camry. Additionally, the Maxima gives you four door curb/courtesy lights while the Camry only has two. The Maxima also has a manual cushion extension for the driver's seat, adjustable rear head restraints, and a radio data system. The Camry does have head restraints, but they are fixed. As for the radio data system and the cushion extension, you won't find them available for the new Camry.
