The 2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo should be one of the most interesting novelties for the next year. The company’s famous performance division is about to introduce a completely new version of its flagship sedan. A performance car in a full-size package definitely sounds interesting. For this occasion, we are about to see various modifications. Of course, the most notable will be those in terms of styling, since Nismo is about to come with numerous new body parts. Besides more attractive styling, this version should come with numerous mechanical modifications.
Finally, we expect to see more power. The current engine will most likely remain, but with some tweaks that will provide more power. According to some reports, the 2019 Maxima Nismo will be ready by the end of the years. Still, consider that we still don’t have an official confirmation from the manufacturer, so take all this with reserve.
2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo styling
The visual appearance is always one of the most notable things when it comes to sports cars. For this occasion, we expect to see various kinds of changes compared to the base model. First of all, expect to see a completely new body kit. Sportier bumpers, spoiler and side skirts are just some of the new things that are about to come. Also, we should see some nice rear diffuser to emphasize the car’s sporty character. Finally, expect to see things like bigger and more attractive wheels, new colors, grille etc.
On the inside, we expect plenty of Nismo’s impact too. First of all, we should see a brand-new trim, as well as sportier steering wheel and instrument cluster. Expect to see new racing seats, as well as plenty of “Nismo” badges around the cabin.
2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo mechanics
Besides numerous visual changes, the 2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo should also come with mechanical tweaks. First of all, expect to see changes on the chassis. We expect a completely new suspension, designed for a real sports ride. Also, new brakes should be installed, as well as various other things. Rest of the things will remain pretty much the same. Under the hood, 2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo will come with important changes as well. One of them is a new transmission. The base version of this full-size sedan comes with a CVT gearbox, which definitely isn’t the best solution for a sports car. So, the new performance version is about to get something different. Most likely, it will be an automatic transmission but with manual mode and paddle shifters. Finally, expect to see changes on the engine.
2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo engine
When it comes to engine, we expect changes as well. Though, we won’t see a new unit under the hood but rather the same 3.5-liter V6 engine. In the current version, it delivers around 300 horsepower. Expect to see few tweaks which will provide some additional power, most likely between 30 and 50 additional horses. Considering that the base model needs around 5.7 seconds to reach 60, the new version should be able to stick to 5 seconds. Despite the power increase, we expect to see similar numbers in terms of fuel economy. In practice, this would mean around 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on a highway, which sounds pretty amazing, considering the car’s size.
2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo release date and price
First of all, it is important to mention that the 2019 Nissan Maxima Nismo still needs an official confirmation. However, several reliable resources suggest its launch already by the end of this year. Expect a base price around 45.000/50.000 dollars.
