The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors. The 2014 Dodge Charger's interior may surprise luxury car shoppers, but it'll definitely delight the blue collar crowd.
