The 2016 Nissan Maxima Nismo is finally getting a nice touch of remodeling especially when it comes to performance to better differentiate Nissan’s flagship sedan from the popular (but bland) Altima sedan. This shift is about to happen in late 2015 or in the beginning of 2016 year. According to some they gave away their front-drive proportions and goofy grin in order to become way better hot sport sedan with more aggressive mean look like the 370Z and GT-R. Although basic Sentra’s and Versa econoboxes are a good selling products, the newest Nissan sport vehicles were at the peak of glory and boosting and promoting the brand on the best way possible.
2016 Nissan Maxima Nismo review
Before the current re-alignment to its 4DSC Maxima was a really at a turning point; there was a serious discussion about going the full EV route, with the cab-forward styling of the 2011 Nissan Ellure concept. Another option was to adapt the 370Z’s latest chassis for use in a rear-drive sedan, or even a stretched GT-R of our dreams. Although making the standard Nissan look more interesting and appealing, both of the options are beyond reality. Staying in the safe zone with the current layout also makes possible creating the current models in $31,000 to $36,000 price range. With Infiniti’s billion-dollar name changes and new Q50 sedan to replace the G37 Nissan did their job right and managed to pull out selling a volume sedan for more than $40,000. Since there are no enough details about the engine and other specs, there is a lot to be speculated. So, with the fact that Maxima is currently being built in Smryna, Tennessee with the Altima, chances that we are about to witness dream rear- or all-wheel-drive layout are dropping by the second. Ad the fact that both GT-R and 370Z came from Japan. With that in mind, the most probable update the Maxima may undergo is 3.5-liter engine that could easily add 40 horsepower to the current total of 290. Maxima’s down points for sport cars like CVT gearbox and torque steer could easily be improved with the usage of better transmission and a limited-slip differential, even without GT-R or Infiniti-level rear-drive platforms.

Opting for this solution may provide a $45,000 Nismo variant of the Maxima everything they need to get better performance. That includes semi-slick tires with Nitrogen fill, track-ready springs, a limited-slip differential and maybe even the rear wheel steering. With the assist of these features GT-R got to be called the Nurburgring lap king by the fact that that helps maintain a lot of pace in the corners. That is one of the reasons why the Porsche did a thorough study about the largest space that GT-R leaves at high speed at the Green Hell’s corners. Properly used, adding there a manual box and maybe a double clutch unit and it could mean a huge improvement for the 2016 Nissan Maxima Nismo – especially if the basic models keep the dreaded CVT gearbox.
