The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Nissan Maxima is the wild child of the Nissan bunch. It looks the part, but don't be fooled: after first blush it acts more like a near-luxury cruiser. The sleek lines of the 2017 Volkswagen CC compromise its four-door sedan usability, making it a specialty choice in the segment.
