2017 Nissan Maxima advantages
In most instances, like with safety features, options are important. However, in a vehicle like the 2017 Nissan Maxima, you aren't likely to need a ton of engine options to choose from. There is only one available engine across all five trim levels. This 3.5L V6 engine provides more power than both of the engine options on the 2017 Honda Accord. The performance of the base 2.4L four-cylinder doesn't come close to the base on the Nissan Maxima. The optional engine on the Honda Accord also falls short, with 252 pound-feet of torque and 278 horsepower from a 3.5L V6 engine. The standard and only engine on the 2017 Nissan Maxima churns out an impressive 300 horsepower and 231 pound-feet of torque.
As technology becomes a ubiquitous part of our lives, vehicles are adapting to include features that can help drivers stay safe while still staying connected. If drivers want to use their smartphone behind the wheel for navigation, music streaming, placing calls, or receiving texts, they are able to do so while still paying attention to the road. Voice control is standard on all trim levels of the 2017 Nissan Maxima, which allows drivers to access their phone apps without taking their eyes off the road. Voice control is an option on the 2017 Honda Accord, but it isn't available unless you choose a higher trim level.
