Chicago radio legends Steve and Johnnie take us on a video tour of the aggressively styled 2016 Nissan Maxima.
Nissan took the wraps off its next-generation “4-Door Sports Car” at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima is 1.3 inches lower and 2.2 inches longer than the previous-generation model. The radical new look is highlighted by Nissan’s “V-Motion” front-end styling motif, “boomerang” taillights, unique kick-up rear roof pillars, and a floating roof appearance. The model lineup expands to include SL, SR, and top-line Platinum trim levels in addition to the existing S and SV grades.
I’ve been thinking about this car a lot lately, and I’m not quite sure why. Normally it’s friends I’ve lost touch with that cause me to drift into moments of nostalgia; this time it’s a Nissan. My Maxima was a ’99, and I bought it to replace my 1995 Integra. I hated having to part with the Acura, but I found it especially difficult to install and remove my then-newborn daughter into and from her car seat in the back of that fabulous but cramped coupe. A four-door was in order.
When the redesigned Honda Accord debuted for the 2018 model year, it was missing an optional feature it had offered for more than two decades: a V6 engine.
It’s perhaps not quite what you’d expect from “Midnight Editions” (shouldn’t they be, um, black?) but Nissan says these new additions to the Sentra, Altima, Rogue, Murano, and Pathfinder lineups reflect the popularity of the original version that was first made available on the 2016 Maxima SR – and accounted for 85 percent of SR sales.
DETROIT—Nissan unveiled its VMotion 2.0 concept car at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, forecasting the design theme that future Nissan production sedans will follow.
The snow came later than it usually does here around Consumer Guide’s suburban Chicago headquarters. However, when it did come, it came with impact, dumping 6-8 inches around the area in a relatively short period of time. With snow comes snow-covered vehicles, some of which may be difficult to identify under all the badge- and shape-obscuring white stuff. Here we have eight liberally coated vehicles for you to identify. A couple of the cars are pretty easy, but a few should take you a least a moment to ID.
