The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Nissan Maxima offers a lot more flair than the typical larger sedan, along with premium feel inside; but driving enthusiasts should be aware that it isn't quite a serious sport sedan. The 2013 Dodge Charger hits all the right blue-collar chords, yet its interior may impress the upper crust.
