Stepping inside the 2021 Nissan Maxima is like stepping into a premium oasis. There is maximum comfort for every passenger and convenience features that make each drive effortless. It starts when you sit in the driver's seat. The unique Nissan Zero Gravity front seats provide extra comfort and positioning that can help keep you focused and relaxed. The center console is tilted ever so slightly, seven degrees to be exact, toward the driver, giving the driver a focused view on the necessary controls and the 8-inch touchscreen. Both the front driver and passenger seats have available heated and cooled seat options, plus a heated steering wheel.
The comfort and convenience continue into the rear seats. Rear passengers can also enjoy heated seats in the 40th Anniversary Edition model of the 2021 Nissan Maxima, and there's even an option for a rear power sunshade. No matter where you sit, you can still enjoy the benefits of leather-appointed seats and premium finishes throughout the interior, plus standard rear vents and dual-zone automatic temperature control in the front seats.

It's worth noting the elegance and luxurious interior included on the 2021 Nissan Maxima 40th Anniversary Edition. Much of what makes this special edition stand out is what's on the inside. Red semi-aniline leather-appointed seating embossed with the 40th Anniversary badge and red contrast stitching give this Maxima a custom vibe. Dark chrome accents and white speedometer and tachometer faces complete the interior and make every drive feel extra special and exhilarating.
Extra convenience features that help you in your daily life include the available memory system, intelligent climate control, and remote start. The memory system is ideal if you share your 2021 Maxima with another driver because you can save settings like the driver seat height and length, steering wheel, and outside mirrors. The available remote start and intelligent climate control allow you to start your Maxima using the key fob, and the system automatically warms or cools the car based on the outside temperature. You can even take advantage of the available rear door alert that notifies you to check your back seats for items before leaving the Maxima. These seemingly simple details can go a long way in making your daily life habits run smoother. We all have somewhere to go and need to get there quickly, and the 2021 Nissan Maxima's interior features make it a seamless transition.
The 2021 Nissan Maxima is a large sedan with high performance. As you whip through the streets, you'll feel like you're driving a sports car with its powerful engine, but you still enjoy the convenient benefits of a sedan. The 2021 Maxima features a 3.5L V6 engine with 300 hp. If good fuel economy is more your thing, the 2021 Nissan Maxima has that too.

All of this performance doesn't sacrifice comfort and stability, though.

This houses the navigation and infotainment systems, plus connectivity to your compatible phone through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Many of these options can even be accessed without taking your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel.
Another bit of technology that helps the driver stay focused and informed on the road is Nissan's Advanced Drive-Assist Display, a 7-inch color display right in your instrument cluster. You'll receive safety notifications, directions, what song is currently playing, and even notifications to take a break if it senses your driving habits are changing. All of your vehicle's most important information is there so that you spend less time distracted and looking away.
The available navigation system inside the 2021 Nissan Maxima is designed to make your life easier as you try to drive the best route to your destination.

This system is ideal for those who use a Maxima for city life and utilize street parking or parking garages frequently.
While the Maxima comes equipped with its own technology and ways to sync your device with its system, there's still a need for passengers to use their devices, and the 2021 Maxima has you covered. This Maxima comes with an available WiFi hotspot that can connect up to seven devices, meaning everyone can stay entertained and connected throughout the drive. If everyone is trading song choices, use the WiFi hotspot to quickly search and then blast it on the premium Bose audio system.
