Maxima vs Camry Driving Experience

2020 Nissan Maxima DrivingUnder the hood of the Nissan Maxima lies a powerful 3.5L V6 engine. With its sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, this engine is designed to deliver an exhilarating driving experience. With the V6 power, you’ll press down on the accelerator and feel like the Maxima is ready for takeoff. The V6 delivers 300 horsepower, more than enough for your highway travels, but also nimble enough to take on city streets.

While the Maxima entry-level engine is a V6, the base Camry comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that lags behind the power of the Maxima. This engine delivers just 203 horsepower. If you want V6 power similar to the Maxima, you’ll have to fork over a few more bucks to get it.

The Maxima driving experience is bolstered by the Drive Mode Selector, which allows you to choose your own driving mode. Put the Maxima in Sport mode and the throttle response sharpens, and the steering tightens for a thrilling ride.

Multimedia at Your Fingertips

With the NissanConnect® 8-inch touchscreen display, you’ll have easy access to a range of features right in the center stack area. The 8-inch screen in the Maxima is easy to use and a bit easier to see than the Camry touchscreen, which measures in at just seven inches.
