The Nissan Maxima has been the world’s “Four-Door Sports Car” for more than three decades now, and it doesn’t look like it plans to relinquish that title anytime soon. New for the 2016 model year, the Maxima is now in its fifth generation of production. The 2016 Nissan Maxima is split into five trims:
The new Maxima relies on the VQ35DE for power. A 3.5-liter 24-valve V6 engine, the VQ35DE produces 300 horsepower and 261 foot-pounds of torque. The Maxima engine is mated to Nissan’s Xtronic, which is the manufacturer’s Continuously Variable Transmission brand. So, not only does the midsize four-door sedan have loads of power for acceleration or switching lanes, it provides a smooth driving experience with the absence of gear shifting. Fuel economy is generally solid, with 22 miles per gallon (mpg) for city driving and 30 mpg for highway driving.
From an exterior perspective, the 2016 Nissan Maxima sports a sleek profile, lowered stance, and 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels—looking every bit like a family-friendly sedan with sports-like appearance. At the base level, the vehicle has features that include:
• Auto-dimming rearview mirror
• Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone operation and streaming audio
• Fog lights
• HomeLink transceiver for remote-controlling garage doors
Upgrading your Maxima trim can enable you to add or get the following features, among others:
• Navigation system
• Power moonroof
• Rear spoiler
• Turn-signal indicators and heating capability on the power exterior mirrors
• 11-speaker Bose stereo system
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Nissan Maxima
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Nissan Maxima invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost (calculated above) + Taxes / Licensing Fees - Rebate / Incentive = True Cost (You can get rebates and incentives here)

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
