averaged 18.8 mpg with slightly more city use than highway driving. Other Maxima test cars averaged 20.1-22.4 mpg with more highway use.
Consumer Guide




EPA fuel economy ratings for the 2011 Nissan Maxima are 19 mpg city, 26 highway—numbers that are a bit better than most luxurious rival models in the city but about typical for the class of large sedans on the highway.

Since fuel consumption and emissions counts for such a significant portion of a vehicle's environmental impact over its lifetime, that ranks the Maxima about average overall.

Premium gasoline is required in the Maxima. However, the EPA numbers might be slightly pessimistic; in a recent experience driving a Maxima for most of a week, almost entirely in short-trip city conditions, we easily averaged 20 mpg.

Conclusion

There aren’t any surprises here; the 2011 Nissan Maxima is about as green as you’d expect a larger, V-6-powered sedan to be.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
