Inside is a driver-oriented cockpit and comfortable seating for five occupants. The interior’s “Gliding Wing” interior layout emphasizes the horizontal movement and easy access to all controls.

The refined Maxima handling and ride comfort starts with a 4-wheel independent suspension with monotube rear shock absorbers. The sporty Maxima SR grade features unique suspension damper tuning, a larger front stabilizer bar and 19-inch wheels and tires.
