Expert Quotes:

The unusual “catamaran” front clip presents the occupants with a forward view like that of a Corvette or Ferrari
Popular Mechanics

one of those cars that looks striking from certain angles and awkward from others
Edmunds

nice, not-overdone bulges around the wheel wells, and those and the lines of the hood give the car a muscular look
AutoWeek

From the blunted front end to the deeply sculpted sides to the fat, sexy haunches, there is little question that design-wise Nissan's biggest sedan has got the look.

The cockpit is gorgeous
Motor Trend

The Nissan Maxima was given a redesign a couple of years ago, but it's still one of the freshest-looking sedans in this class. It's still head-turning, with curvy sheetmetal, an aggressive front-end design, and an overall stance that makes it look like it could have rear-wheel drive.

From the outside the 2011 Nissan Maxima appears curvy and flamboyant, with just-right proportions and a low-but-upright grille, flanked by headlights that streak back to two points, with fenders that flare upward slightly, in a look that a friend described as "ready to rumble." To top it off, the Maxima comes with flared wheelwells and low-profile tires mounted on eye-catching alloys.

Interior appointments—with premium leather, matte-metallic brightwork, and "Eucalyptus Wood-Tone" trim—are absolutely beautiful, and feel like they'd be at home in one of Nissan's Infiniti luxury-brand products.

For 2011, the Maxima gets a number of minor revisions, including a rolled-edge tailpipe finisher. Sport models now have smoked headlamps, a dark chrome grille, and shiny gray interior stitching.

Conclusion

With a curvy, flamboyant exterior and gorgeous interior, the 2011 Nissan Maxima is anything but boring to look at.

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.
