In the scheme of things, the announcement from Nissan that the 2012 Maxima would not have a price increase could be easily overlooked. It shouldn’t be, since families looking to stretch their dollars may find the fact that the automaker held the line on its flagship sedan rather reassuring.

On sale now at Nissan dealerships nationwide, the 2012 Nissan Maxima again comes in two models, the 3.5 S and 3.5 SV, with prices beginning at $31,750 and $34,450, respectively. Destination charge is extra. Both are powered by the 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated with Xtronic CVT.

There isn’t, however, much in the way of content change, although the Maxima does sport some new things: a new grille, taillights, 18- and 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels, meter cluster illumination, interior trim options and the addition of Café Latte as a new interior color. The Maxima also has a new audio segment display and new audio/HVAC knob design. Two new exterior colors are offered: Java Metallic and Dark Slate.

One bright spot is the Limited Edition package for the 3.5 S model, which carries a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $710. Included with the Limited Edition package are: dark satin chrome front grille, HID Xenon headlights, smoked appearance headlights, fog lights, a compass in the rear view mirror, outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, 18-inch Dark Hyper Silver finish wheels, and metallic trim.
