This year Nissan plans to introduce new sport sedan. It will be new Maxima. Presentation of this new model is planned for Detroit Auto Show this January, so we can expect that new model will arrive in market in the fall of 2014.
Even there is no too much information about new model we are pretty sure that new 2015 Nissan Maxima will be based on a Concept car that will be showed on the Detroit Auto Show. It will be a four-door sedan with much more aggressive look, something like GT-R. It will get a new, oblique angle of the roof and, according to our reliable sources, it will be almost 4 inches lower than a current model! New model will also be 3 inches longer and two inches wider. Also, there will be much more aluminum and other lightweight materials included in order to reduce weight. There no information about interior of new 2015 Nissan Maxima, because it still in the middle of the testing phase, some minor changes will be for sure, but we don’t expect to be too much different from a present model.
Current Nissan Maxima uses 3.5 liter V6 24-valve DOHC engine which delivers 290 horsepower. It is expected that new model will be even stronger. There are some rumors that new 2015 Nissan Maxima will have around 330 horses, which will improve even now great performance. With new stronger engine, better aerodynamics and weight reduction new Maxima will have even better result than current models acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. Beside front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive system will be also an option, according to some rumors. Fuel economy will probably be improved, but that is not so important because even current Maxima have more than a decent fuel consumption of 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
We are expecting that 2015 Nissan Maxima price will remain in the same range – somewhere around 31,000 dollars for base model, and around 40,000 for high-performance 2015 Nissan Maxima Nismo variant for all those who want a true sport driving feel. The release date is expected by the end of the year.
2015 Nissan Maxima Sport Sedan Concept
Nissan Sport Sedan Concept is definitely one of the most attractive exhibits at the Detroit salon. But, now the question is, which model it announces, really?
Although Nissan never mentioned the 2015 Nissan Maxima sedan in the report, however, states that the study applies the standards to be applied when creating a sporty new design philosophy in a four-door sedan. As well as to study announces future production model designed for customers with a passion to great design and driving dynamics .
All of the above is wrapped about 4.87 meters long, 1.91 meters wide and 1.38 meters high, 2.82 meters long with a wheelbase that makes it slightly larger compared to the current Maxima sedan upper middle class. In addition to doubts whether it is a direct harbinger of the 2015 Nissan Maxima or its sports counterparts, Sport Sedan concept under the hood hides a 3.5-liter V6 tuned to over 300 horses mated to a sport-calibrated Xtronic CVT transmission and is transferred to the front wheels. Wheels are 21 inch diameter and a lean concept is described as an innovative setting with sport shock absorbers.
