The first version of the Maxima was released back in 1976 and this, 2016 model belongs to the 8th generation. Exterior of the 2016 Nissan Maxima is very similar to the Sport Sedan Concept, presented back in January 2014 and it bears a signature “four-door sports car”.
2016 Nissan Maxima Exterior
As we said earlier, the exterior of 2016 Nissan Maxima is almost identical to the Sport Sedan Concept. The car looks very modern with aggressive appearance, giving the impression of a real race car with elegantly sloped hood and large headlights.
Rear end is also modern but a bit more reserved than the front. Rear bumper blends very smoothly with the overall looks of the rear, while chromed dual exhaust pipes and LED taillights add a nice finishing touch.
Very wide range of colors will be available for the new 2016 Maxima: Coulis Red, Bordeaux Black, Brillian Silver, Gun Metallic, Forged Bronze, Super Black, Pearl White, Deep Blue Pearl and Storm Blue.
