High-tech exhiliration

The Maxima nameplate goes back to the early 1980s, before Datsun became Nissan. It’s a noble name that has fit the flagship full-sized sedan quite well: it has always been a great-looking and comfortable car filled with upscale features. But while the Maxima has been a long-term success story for Nissan, times change, and the sedan segment has steadily slipped in popularity as more and more drivers prefer crossover, SUVs, and pickups. The 2022 model year will mark the end for the Nissan Maxima, after eight generations. For the swan-song version, Nissan has made heated rear outboard seats available for the first time.

The front-wheel-drive 2022 Nissan Maxima will live out its final year of production with a trim lineup of SV, SR, and Platinum. Their 3.5-liter V6 engine puts out 300 hp and 261 lb.-ft. of torque and pairs with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The EPA has officially estimated the ’22 Maxima’s fuel economy at 20 mpg around town and 30 mpg on the highway, meaning it’s ideal for commuting and road trips alike.

Standard and Available Equipment

The SV is a well-outfitted base trim, getting upscale features such as remote start, power-adjustable Zero Gravity heated front seats, LED headlights (automatic), dual-zone auto climate control, heated exterior mirrors with turn-signal indicators, keyless entry, push-button start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a 7-inch Advanced Drive-Assist display, a USB-A, a USB-C port, and a 60/40-split fold-down second-row seatback. The SR has a different appearance, with black exterior trim, a power dual-panel panoramic moonroof, and LED fog lights. Its exterior mirrors are upgraded with position memory, reverse tilt-down capability, and driver’s side auto-dimming. The comfortable cabin shows off extra-fine leather seats with diamond-quilted inserts (ventilated in the front row), a heated steering wheel, aluminum sport pedals, ambient interior lighting with customizable colors, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, a driver’s seat with memory and a manual thigh support extension, a front passenger’s seat with power height adjustment, additional USB-A and USB-C ports, and active noise cancellation and enhancement.

The Platinum may not have the same black trim and performance attributes of the SR, but it keeps the active noise cancellation while adding heated rear outboard seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel with position memory, and a rear-window sunshade (power).


All 2022 Maximas have Nissan Safety Shield installed for better driver confidence and improved safety. The package version in the SV has forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, reverse automatic braking, driver attention alert, and automatic high beams. The two higher trims (SR and Platinum) also get front parking sensors, intelligent lane intervention, and a surround-view monitor.

Technology Features

Every Maxima trim gets an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, SiriusXM satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, smartphone connectivity (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, and navigation. The base SV has a sound system with eight speakers, but the SR and Platinum get the royal treatment with a Bose system that boasts Centerpoint 2 surround-sound and eleven speakers.
