2023 Nissan Maxima Gets New Logo And A Price Hike Of Up To $1,100
Nissan has revealed pricing for the 2023 Maxima, and although the base model gets a modest price bump, it will also feature more standard safety technology.
Starting at $38,140, the 2023 Maxima SV costs $300 than the 2022 model (both prices before $1,095 destination fee). All 2023 Maximas get Nissan Safety Shield 360, which comes with Automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind sport monitoring, lane departure warning, high beam assist, and more. It also comes with intelligent cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and an alertness warning.
The mid-level SR trim also starts $300 higher than it did in 2022 at $43,300. It is the sportiest model in the lineup, and it comes with 19-inch gloss black wheels, aluminum sport pedals, a rear spoiler, active sound enhancement technology, and a sport-tuned suspension.
The 2023 Nissan Maxima Platinum, meanwhile, will actually get the most significant price increase of all. Starting at $44,250, it will cost $1,100 more than the 2022 model. It gets luxurious interior accouterments and 19-inch machined-alloy wheels.
As with the rest of the model lineup, the Maxima will gain Nissan’s updated logo. Adorning the sedan inside and out, it was first shown off on the Ariya EV in 2020. Its first update in 20 years, the new insignia is simpler and more minimalistic, but all in all quite similar to the old one.
Regardless of trim, the 2023 Nissan Maxima is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that is rated at 300 hp (224 kW/304 PS) and 261 lb-ft (354 Nm) of torque. Paired to an Xtronic transmission, the car gets 20 MPG in the city, 30 MPG on the highway, and 24 MPG combined, according to the EPA.
Inside, the Maxima gets a seven-inch infotainment screen and an eight-speaker sound system. The SR and Platinum grades, however, get upgraded to an 11-speaker sound system supplied by Bose.
The 2023 Nissan Maxima is on sale now. As we’ve reported, it won’t be long-lived as Nissan has confirmed plans to phase out the mid-size sedan in mid-2023.
