2023 Nissan Maxima Exterior and Dimensions

2023 Maxima Exterior

Unlike many class competitors that disappear into traffic, the Maxima has a bold and in-your-face look that is truly refreshing. Its exterior features a large "V-Motion" front grille and all models come standard with intelligent auto LED headlights and DRLs. SR and Platinum models also get LED foglights, a power panoramic sunroof, and an auto-dimming driver-side mirror. The base model rides on 18-inch machine-finish alloys, which increase in size to 19 inches for the rest of the range. The SR is the sporty looker in the lineup, with black-out treatment for its wheels and exterior accents.

The Maxima is classified as a full-size sedan and is nearly the same size as competitors such as the Toyota Crown and Dodge Charger. Photos do not do this car justice: out in the real world, it seems larger and has more of a striking presence. The 2023 Maxima has an overall length of 192.8 inches, a width of 73.2 inches without the mirrors, and a height of 56.5 inches. The track width is 62.4 inches front and rear, and rolls on a 109.3-inch wheelbase. The base model weighs in at 3,608 lbs, the SR weighs 3,717 pounds, and the Platinum comes in at 3,730 lbs.
