2013 Nissan Maxima Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

For what it is, the 2013 Nissan Maxima is neither vastly disappointing nor all that impressive; its EPA ratings of 19 mpg city, 26 highway are about typical for the class, given the sporty mission.

One note: Nissan still requires premium fuel for the Maxima, and that can raise your fuel budget compared to other models that get roughly the same ratings.

No surprises here: The 2013 Maxima is about as fuel-efficient as you'd expect for a sporty V-6 sedan.
However, we do suspect that the EPA numbers might be on the low side; in short-trip city driving, we easily averaged 20 mpg in a test Maxima.
