The 2011 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV Sport a midsize sedan worth your consideration. Nissan has always been about quality and the 2011 Maxima is no let down.

The vehicle features a 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine with 290 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 261 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. The intake valves feature the Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System while the exhaust valves showcase the Electronic Continuously Valve Timing Control System. In addition, you get the variable induction system and the Nissan-trademarked Nissan Direct Ignition System with iridium-tipped spark plugs.

The drivetrain is a front engine front wheel drive. Paddle shifters are available as a part of a special package.

The Maxima 3.5 SV is also stacked with 4-wheel ABS and Electronic Brake force Distribution with Brake Assist.

  • Multi-functional trip computer
  • Daytime illumination gauges
  • Bluetooth Hands-free phone system
