2020 Nissan Maxima vs. Its Competition

2020 Nissan Maxima
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Maxima is slightly larger and offers V-6 power compared to its smaller Altima sibling.

Still, if you’re looking for similar style and features from a Nissan at a lower price, opt for the Altima.

The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry both offer sporty versions, one with a turbocharger and one with a V-6 that put them squarely in the Maxima’s sights.

Mazda’s sleek 6 sedan is a blast to drive, especially with the powerful turbocharged engine equipped, and competes with the Maxima on price.

The Volkswagen Arteon is a super-sleek liftback and offers something different compared to traditional sedans.
