Sportier, Upgraded Nissan Maxima Launched in Nashville

Earlier this month in Nashville, Nissan launched a totally redesigned version of their popular Maxima sedan – a model that’s been upgraded on the inside and out for better performance as well as a more contemporary look.

Upgraded Nissan Maxima - 2016 Nissan MaximaNissan is boasting the “aggressive design” and “sportier handling” of the new Maxima, as well as its ability to produce 300 horsepower and its fuel efficiency, getting an average of 30 miles per gallon.

Sedan models are more popular than ever, especially with younger drivers who are more concerned with fuel efficiency and compact sizing than they are with overtly large SUVs, designed for off-roading.

Nissan is specifically trying to increase the sales of their large sedans, such as the Maxima, as the demand for midsize sedans, like the Altima, continues to grow.

This new Maxima will be available for purchase sometime soon this summer, with costs running from an affordable $32,410 and $39,860. What do you think of the upgraded Nissan Maxima? Let us know in the comments.

Nissan Presents ‘WINNING: The Racing Life of Paul Newman’

For 35 years, Paul Newman raced, largely Nissan and Datsun models, in a highly successful career. That career is now documented in a new film, titled “WINNING: The Racing Life of Paul Newman,” and Nissan has the honor of being named presenting sponsor.

Newman is known for his acting and even his salad dressing, but did you know that he didn’t stop racing? As a matter of fact, he won his last race at age 82. Pretty impressive, right?

“Paul Newman not only won an Oscar® as an actor, but also amassed four national championships as a driver and eight championships as a team owner, with many of his most significant victories coming behind the wheel of Nissan and Datsun vehicles,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president of Marketing Communications and Media for Nissan North America.

2016 Nissan Maxima - The Racing Life of Paul NewmanThe documentary first premiered in Los Angeles on April 16, coinciding with the Long Beach Grand Prix. The film’s second debut will be held on May 22 in Indianapolis, scheduled to coincide with the Indy 500. The event will also feature select vehicles from Newman’s racing career and the all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima.

Proceeds from both events will go to Racing for Cancer and The Indy Family Foundation.

We at Lewis Nissan aren’t sure of when the film will become publicly available, but we hope to update you with more details soon.

All-New Nissan Maxima Styling Makes For a Compelling Sedan

The 2016 Nissan Maxima is expressive, impressive, and designed to please. The Maxima is the second in the lineup to absorb the new, sleeker design language and it effuses athleticism, grace, and an aggression that sets the sedan apart.

Nissan Maxima StylingAlong the front fascia, the U-shaped grill is outlined in accent-chrome, while the headlight cluster adds a determined gaze to the Maxima with angular chrome outlines around the lights.

Along the side of the car, the fenders are flared out, while intersecting creased lines put the car in a forward-leaning stance. The domed windshield shaping was redesigned with inspiration from the Navy F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet and receives blackout treatment on the C-pillars on either side.

The interior Nissan Maxima styling does not disappoint, with many design implements incorporated from the GT-R super car including a 7-degree rake-angle of the center console towards the driver, bolstering accessibility in the flowing style inside the car. With its impressive 300-hp engine, the all-new Nissan Maxima will be a compelling addition to the Lewis Nissan lineup in June of this year.
