It’s time to stop pressuring the Maxima to live up to its billing as a four-door sports car and accept it for what it is: a bargain-priced luxury car. A gutsy 3.5-liter V-6 makes 300 hp and drives the front wheels through a CVT. The quiet cabin has an 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. It can be fitted with diamond-quilted seat inserts, a dual-panel sunroof, and ambient lighting. Automated emergency braking is standard; adaptive cruise control is optional.
