Our Concord, NC Dealership Offers Up the Unbeatable New 2018 Nissan Maxima

What makes the offerings at our Concord, NC Nissan dealership serving Charlotte, Kannapolis, Huntersville, Salisbury, Monroe and Matthews so much better than competing vehicles? Well if you take a look at the new 2018 Nissan Maxima, you'll quickly understand why our version of the four-door sports sedan bests the competition. More affordable than comparable sports four-doors, but more powerful than run-of-the-mill midsized sedans, the new Maxima bests the competition at every angle. Find yours by coming over to 967 Concord Pkwy South, Concord, NC today.

Like all our new Nissan cars, the Maxima is well-equipped in its starting package, while you can add plenty more features in the available higher trim levels. With its 300-horsepower V-6 and sporty driving dynamics, the Maxima is far more fun than any average commuter car, while it still earns reasonable fuel efficiency to make it an appropriate everyday ride. See how else the new Maxima bests the competition by looking at this comparison with the Toyota Avalon, Honda Accord, Acura TLX and Kia Cadenza, then make your way over to our Concord Nissan dealership today.


Nissan Maxima vs Toyota Avalon

  • For getting around the Concord, Huntersville and Charlotte areas safely, the Maxima will keep you and your passengers better protected. Earning an overall five-star rating across the board for crash tests, the Maxima tops the Avalon in the important overall frontal crash rating and overall rollover rating areas.
  • The Maxima starts off with a lower base level price than the Avalon, giving you more wiggle room within your budget to add features or to choose a higher trim.
  • Though featuring similar 3.5-liter V-6 engines, the Maxima earns a slight advantage in combined fuel efficiency when compared to the new Avalon. Additionally, the Maxima's V-6 produces a cool 300 horsepower, which bests the 268-horsepower rating in the Avalon.
  • Head and leg room in the front of the Maxima provides more space and comfort than what the dimensions up front in the Avalon offer, so if you're a taller driver, that's an important consideration to make.

Nissan Maxima vs Honda Accord

  • With the standard 3.5-liter V-6, the Maxima vastly outperforms the new Honda Accord. Even if you choose an upgraded version of the Accord, you'll only have a slightly larger turbocharged four-cylinder, which only produces 252 horsepower, compared to the 300-hp rating with the Maxima.
  • Once again, the Maxima proves to be the better fit for drivers with long legs, featuring a nearly 3-inch advantage in legroom for the front two seats over what the Accord offers in terms of space.
  • Available interior features like a premium ascot leather-wrapped steering wheel, "Zero Gravity" climate-controlled front seats and a heated steering wheel make the Maxima far more comfortable inside than what's offered with the Accord.
  • Navigation is also standard in the Maxima, while you'll have to choose a higher and costlier trim level of the Accord for that level of functionality. If your travels take you beyond the Salisbury and Monroe areas, you'll love having clear and easy to follow directions right from your infotainment center in your Maxima.



Nissan Maxima vs Acura TLX

  • Again, if comfort is key, the new Maxima is the way to go when you're shopping here in the Matthews and Mooresville area. More legroom and headroom in the front seats of the Maxima when compared to the relatively tighter space of the TLX accommodates drivers and passengers with longer legs much better.
  • High-end luxurious materials like the Italian-crafted Alcantara interior inserts are available with the Maxima, while the TLX doesn't offer that kind of premium styling in its cabin.
  • The Maxima also allows for the Intelligent Around View Monitor system, which isn't available with the TLX. This gives you a full 360-degree surround view of your car which helps when backing up and making your way around town.
  • Furthermore, the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning is standard with the Maxima, while that kind of driver assistance feature isn't offered with the latest TLX model.

Nissan Maxima vs Kia Cadenza

  • The Maxima is quite a bit more efficient than the Cadenza, even though its 3.5-liter V-6 is slightly larger than the 3.3-liter V-6 in the Kia sedan. You'll earn better performance ratings in the new Nissan Maxima as well, making your Kannapolis area driving far more exciting.
  • The standard forward collision warning system in the Maxima is an excellent feature to have in its base level, giving you more confidence as you make your way around Charlotte and beyond.
  • You also get built-in navigation with the Maxima as a standard feature, as well as a CD player, both of which are only available as additional options with the Cadenza.
