2020 Nissan Maxima vs 2019 Nissan Maxima

Serving Hinesville, GA

Are you debating between the 2019 and 2020 Nissan Maxima for your upcoming sedan purchase? Both of these impressive cars are eighth-generation versions and are comparable in many areas. However, the detailed comparison reveals that the 2020 Maxima has a few improvements that you need to learn about before you make your final vehicle selection. After reading about the improvements, you can check out the updates for the 2020 Nissan Maxima in person with a visit to Vaden Nissan Hinesville.


Across its lengthy history, the Nissan Maxima has become known for its perfect balance of sophistication and power. For 2020, last year’s powertrain and transmission carry up without change. However, the 2020 Maxima has improved mechanical features that make handling and ride to the next level. The V6, 3.5-liter powertrain and continuously variable transmission produce 300 horsepower. For 2020, this duo is combined with improved dampers, stiffer springs, larger front stabilization bars, and a sport-tuned suspension system. Your Maxima’s performance will also be bolstered by drive mode select, intelligent engine braking, active ride control, and intelligent trace control.


If you love the exterior design of the 2019 Nissan Maxima, you will be thrilled to discover that no updates have been made to the appearance of the 2020 model. At the front end, the Maxima makes a bold statement with an hourglass grille featuring a black mesh pattern with a chrome accent piece. The shape of the grille is enhanced by the flow of the LED ribbon in the headlights and by the shape of the foglamp and air vent portals. The design of the Maxima is also defined by a bold swoop that runs over the hood, and that extends throughout the chiseled side panels. Quad exhaust tips, a sharp roof profile and rocker panels add finishing touches to the Maxima’s exterior design.


Nissan made several significant improvements to the 2020 Maxima. The Safety Shield 360 advanced assistive technologies become standard across the board for the 2020 model year. With this package, the Maxima has a rear cross-traffic warning, pedestrian detection, a lane departure alert, a blind spot sensor, and auto emergency braking. If you take home the 2020 Maxima SR, your car will now include a panoramic sunroof as well as a 360-degree camera as standard equipment. Other equipment across all trims is unchanged. These items include a digital instrumentation screen, USB-C connection ports, a heads-up display screen, smart device connections, a navigation system, touch access for the 8-inch color display screen, a premium Bose audio system, an automatic dual-zone climate control feature and more.
