Nissan's sporty sedan was redesigned last year with handsome styling inside and out and good overall performance, and thus continues for 2005 with only slight revisions. Its 265-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine drives the front wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission in the base version, and a choice of either the automatic or a close-ratio six-speed-manual gearbox in the SE model. If you choose the manual, you can also add Vehicle Dynamic Control for added surefootedness over a wide range of conditions. A Skyview sunroof comes standard and is essentially a narrow glass panel that runs lengthwise across its roof. (For those who find this slot-like sunroof unseemly, a standard moonroof is also offered.) Four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, dual-zone air conditioning, a CD stereo, keyless entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, garage door opener, and alloy wheels with 18-inch tires are all standard. An Elite Package includes a fixed full-length center console and rear bucket seats that makes this a four- (rather than five-) passenger sedan.

Conveniently, the Maxima is now the Maximum Altima.
