2014 NISSAN MAXIMA

WOULDN'T IT BE COOL IF_

A SEDAN HAD THE SOUL OF A SPORTS CAR?

Should passion have to take a back seat to the back seat? We don't think so. Welcome to the 2014 Maxima,® the 4-Door Sports Car.® Fender flares crouched over available 19" wheels are your invitation. A 290-hp V6 is ready to reel in the horizon. Inside, there's room for five and all the upscale luxuries and technology you desire, including an available Dual Panel Moonroof and power-tilt/telescoping steering column. But you won't confuse Maxima® with any other 4-door. Because at heart, it's a sports car. And that makes all the difference in the world. The 2014 Maxima.® Ready to be your soulmate.

NISSAN XTRONIC CVT® TRANSMISSION

INNOVATION THAT SAYS GOODBYE TO GEARS.

Wouldn't it be cool to ride an endless wave of power? With Maxima®'s virtually gearless Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), hunting for gears and clunky downshifts are a thing of the past. By letting you stay in the engine's sweet spot, a quick, satisfying rush of power is just a touch of a pedal away.

What makes a sedan feel like a sports car? It takes more than stats. It takes a bond between car and driver. In Maxima®, the thick leather-wrapped steering wheel connects you to the road, the available steering column mounted paddle shifters are a fingertip reach away, and the transmission lever is placed close to you for quick shifts – every detail making you feel at one with the car and the action.

Who says coupes should have all the fun? You'll love Maxima®'s powerful 290-hp V6, and your friends will love that no one has to be left behind. Everything's at your fingertips, from available paddle shifters to audio controls for your iPod.®1 So go for a drive – a quick blast, a scenic cruise or long weekend – it doesn't matter, just hit the road. You've got a Maxima®, you should be driving. Revved up? See the next page and find out even more.

UNRELENTING POWER.

The legendary 3.5-liter V6 rapidly unleashes its 290 horsepower with a press of the accelerator. The intake valve design, coupled with variable valve timing, helps generate incredible torque for off-the-line acceleration and improved power at higher engine speeds. A unique piston design and an advanced engine mounting system dramatically reduce unwanted engine vibrations, so the ride is as smooth as it is powerful.

UNMATCHED FINESSE.

In Maxima®, any road is a blank canvas. With the advanced Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), you have four driver-selectable modes, letting you make quick work of your favorite drive in a style uniquely your own.

Sport-tuned Suspension.The Maxima® shock absorber mounting system helps deliver exceptional responsiveness with minimal harshness. An available advanced sport-tuned suspension – fitted with a thicker front stabilizer bar, stiffer springs and high-performance front struts and rear shocks – gives you great open road performance without compromising ride comfort.

Vehicle-speed-sensitive Steering.Navigating the streets on your morning commute, and squeezing into that parking spot once you arrive, is easier than ever. The cutting-edge steering system is exceptionally responsive. Since it reacts to vehicle speed, not engine speed, it provides more precise maneuvering in the passing lane or the parking garage.

INSPIRATION AT YOUR FINGERTIPS.

Slip behind the wheel and feel Maxima®'s intuitive design put everything you need close at hand. And while your passengers may be envious, once they're settled in their own rich leatherappointed seat with deep contours, and enjoying panoramic views, you'll hear nothing but gratitude.

CONNECTION ON A HIGHER LEVEL.

With Maxima®'s advanced connective technology, you can easily keep in touch with your world and, just as important, out of traffic jams.

Nissan Navigation System.Stay on schedule with turn-by turn Voice Guidance. And avoid nasty bottlenecks with NavTraffic. Enjoy trusted restaurant recommendations from Zagat Survey,® while NavWeather helps you stay on top of changing conditions. Wherever your life takes you, count on the satellite-based Nissan Navigation System.

A. Bose® Audio. The available Bose® audio system features nine strategically placed speakers, including two woofers and a center channel, to surround you in deep, resonant bass and crystal-clear vibrant highs.

B, C. Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition. Standard on every Maxima®, you can unlock the doors and trunk, get in, start the engine and drive away, all without ever taking the key out of your pocket or purse.

D. RearView Monitor. With this option, when you engage Reverse, a discreet color camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle helps you see what's directly behind you via your Information Center monitor. The on-screen predicted path guidelines move in response to steering input.

E. iPod®-friendly Technology. Maxima® gives you a variety of ways to enjoy your iPod.® You can simply plug in using the standard auxiliary audio input. Even better, the available USB input lets you play your iPod® or USB thumb drive and control the music through the audio system or touch-screen monitor.

F. Bluetooth.®

With the standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, voice-recognition allows you to make and receive calls through the stereo speaker system.1 No headset, no reaching – just a nice, firm grip on the steering wheel.
