The Nissan Maxima is at the top of it’s game. It was recently awarded the “Top Safety Pick +” by IIHS when equipped with Forward Emergency Braking, and was named one of Wards 10 Best Engines for 2016. But how does it compare to it’s competitors, the 2016 Acura TLX and 2016 BMW 3 Series? Well, you can see for yourself.
Compare the features of the 2016 Nissan Maxima to that of it’s competitors:
Active Ride Control
The 2016 Acura TLX and 2016 BMW3 Series may have their own version of a handling and steering system, but only Maxima’s Integrated Dynamic-control Module offers Active Ride Control. When you go over road bumps, this feature subtly applies the brakes to level the chassis, helping to give you a smooth, controlled ride.
Dual Panel Moonroof and ‘Floating Roof’ Design
Maxima offers available design elements you just won’t find on the competition. A massive dual panel panoramic moonroof makes everyone feel like they’re right up in the clouds. The pillars appear to meld into the glasswork, giving the illusion of a roof that hovers over the cabin like a fighter jet canopy.
Available Alcantara® Seat Inserts
Maxima’s luxurious interior features available quilted, Italian-made Alcantara—a material that’s usually reserved for the highest of high-end performance cars. Pair that with front Zero Gravity seats and you’ve got yourself unmatched interior comfort.
Available Around View® Monitor With Moving Object Detection
Maxima’s Around View® Monitor outsmarts the competition’s backup monitors and rearview mirrors. It’s the only system with Moving Object Detection amongst the 2016 Acura TLX, and 2016 Chevrolet Impala that not only shows you what’s directly behind your vehicle, but also gives you a virtual 360º view of your surroundings, and helps detect certain moving objects in close proximity.
NissanConnectSM with Navigation
On Maxima, convenience comes standard on every trim. NissanConnect with Navigation features an eight-inch color screen that serves up Points of Interests like restaurants, gas stations, and ATMs, and guides you to your destination with voice-guided turn-by-turn directions. To get the same integrated navigation features from the 2016 Acura TLX V6 and 2016 BMW 3 Series, you’ll have to get the option or go up a trim or two.
Remote Engine Start System With Intelligent Climate Control
Not only does Maxima let you start your vehicle remotely, it also adjusts the interior to a comfortable temperature so that when you get in, it’s neither too hot or too cold. On Maxima this feature is standard on the base model, but if you want it from the 2016 Acura TLX and 2016 BMW 3 Series it’ll come at an additional cost.
Available Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW)
Maxima’s PFCW system is so intuitive, it can alert you to potential risks up ahead by monitoring up to two vehicles in front of you. That’s right, up to two; which means it can see what you—and the 2016 Acura TLX and 2016 BMW 3 Series—can’t.
Driver Attention Alert (DAA)
Maxima’s Driver Attention Alert system monitors your steering patterns, and alerts you with a chime and lit up coffee cup icon if it detects unusual steering activity that may indicate fatigue.
