2017 Nissan Maxima With Standard Navigation System

Under the hood of the 2017 Nissan Maxima, you'll find a standard 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces an impressive 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. When you compare that to the much less capable 2.4-liter I-4 under the hood of the 2017 Honda Accord, you can see why so many drivers choose the obviously more responsive Maxima.

When it comes to the exterior styling, both the Maxima and the Accord are modern and aerodynamic. The affordable Accord's more traditional look won't stand out from other vehicles on the road, but looks clean and functional. The aggressive exterior of the Maxima exudes confidence and intentionality. The Maxima is a sedan made to catch the eye of everyone it passes by. 

When it comes to interior features, the high-tech convenience of the Maxima certainly outruns the Honda Accord. An eight-speaker audio system and standard Bluetooth compatibility work with the first-row LCD touch screen to provide seamless use of your smartphone devices for making hands-free phone calls and playing your favorite music. Another standard feature for the Maxima, the voice-activated navigation system, is only an optional feature for the 2017 Honda Accord. Sure, you will spend a little more for the Maxima, but the increased performance and bonus features mean you get what you pay for.
