With a new Maxima expected to debut next year for the 2015 model year, Nissan is only making small changes to its big sedan for 2014. Buyers looking to get behind the wheel of Nissan's "4-Door Sports Car" will be happy to know that the base price for the 2014 Maxima carries over from 2013 starting at $31,000 (*excluding the $810 destination charge).

Aside from two new colors, the only change to the base Maxima S is the addition of a new option group. Sounding very similar to the Sport Package available on the SV, the $750 Limited Edition Package adds smoked Xenon headlights, dark-accented 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and fog lights. Stepping up to the SV trim level, the Maxima now comes standard with a rearview camera, Xenon headlights and a seven-inch screen, but its price has also been increased by $850, so it starts at $34,090.

      I wish these still came with a manual transmission like back in the 90s. I drove a manual once, and never had so much fun in a car, outside of a Miata!

      The maxima needed a large price cut. The infiniti G37 just had its price reduced to $33,500. That is maxima teritory for a far far far superior car than the maxima. I honestly dont understand why nissan even has the maxima. Are there really that many people who want a non-name brand, luxury v6 with FWD? I would think cars like teh accord v6 and altima v6 were for them. But who thinks those are not luxurious enough and move up to the maxima? I dont really get it and i very rarely see these anyway.

      Now that the G37 has received such a significant price cut, who in their right mind would buy one of these? Even before they were a tough sell compared to the G37...

      Well lets not forget what happened to the Taurus, midsize car, disappeared for a bit, and came back as the fullsize 30k+ sedan and lets not forget the SHO sports model. I don't see Ford needing to sell the Taurus when the Fusion is doing so good but they sell it. Like the Taurus the Maxima has a market so we can single it out and say they don't need to offer it, it still sells like 40-50k units last I checked. If the old Maxima was the sporty alternative to midsize cars of the day like the Camry the new one needs to be the sporty alternative in the full-size and I think they are on the right track with the concept images we saw of a GT-R like roofline from a design standpoint hopefully it drives to back up the styling.

      I never understood why Nissan put a CVT on this model.... This is supposed to be a sports sedan. CVTs (which are usually programmed for fuel economy) do not a sporty car make.

        I had an 08 Maxima. The CVT was the only part of the car I didn't like. It was quick, had an excellent ride quality, and was awesome for long road trips and held up pretty well with a nasty LA commute for four years. I'd love to see a normal automatic or DSG transmission on this car.

      The car was designed in 2008, yet it's still refreshing and modern looking. Nissan did a great job with the Maxima!

      The storied Maxima name sadly stuck in an awkward place. Not the volume leader like the Altima became nor an quite an Infiniti on the higher end. They've kept the outgoing G37 and dropped the price so this is an even a harder sell as a "sports car." I said this last time - Nissan really needs to just turn it into an Avalon, Azera, Impala, and Cadenza competitor. It won't be a "sports car," but at least it will fit into its own identifiable niche.

      Isn't the Mazda 6 a million times better and cheaper?

      I had a 2000 Maxima and loved it. The current car is downright fugly, IMO. I'm not sure why Nissan lost their way with the Maxima, but change is needed pronto!

      Looks exactly like the one I returned few months ago, good riddance! Fast, reliable, but so unrefined. Never again will get a Nissan(I hope)!

        Mine was a fuel pig and torque steered so bad it wasn't funny. Got rid of it after a year...

        This is pretty accurate based on my history with Nissan. On paper, everything is there. Performance, reliability, etc. But the refinement is lacking. The current generation VQ engine makes good power but it sounds and feels very harsh. Which is a shame, because it used to be buttery smooth back in the 3.0L days.
