2011 Nissan Maxima Styling

9.0
Styling
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.

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

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.
