Facelifted: 2012 Nissan Maxima

Limited Edition

Nissan gives some minor tweaking to the upcoming 2012 Maxima.

Nissan has given the upcoming 2012 Maxima sedan some minor cosmetic enhancements. The facelift tweaks include an updated front grille design, restyled rear combination lights, new 18- and 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and the addition of two new exterior colors called Dark Slate and Java Metallic. Under the hood, the revised Maxima will continue to generate power from a 3.5-liter V6 engine cranking out 290 hp and is mated to a Nissan Xtronic CVT transmission.

The interior remains the same with the exception of a new audio segment display/HVAC knob design and the introduction of Dark Piano hairline trim, Atlantic Cherry wood tone trim, Café Latte interior color and Metallic finish trim. A new Limited Edition package also includes smoked HID Xenon headlights, a compass in the rearview mirror, a new rear spoiler and a dark satin chrome front grille. Also included are fog lights, outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, metallic trim, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels in a Dark Hyper Silver finish. The package's price tag costs $750.
