Updates for 2018 are light. The flagship Maxima adds Android Auto (Apple CarPlay was added to the 2017 model) as standard equipment, two available rear USB charging ports, a new paint color (Carnelian Red) and added black accents to its dramatic front grille.
It will still be offered in five trim levels, each of which see a small price increase for 2018 (all prices included an $885 destination charge):
- S: $33,905 ($410 increase from last year)
- SV: $35,905 ($430)
- SL: $38,325 ($350)
- SR: $39,165 ($410)
- Platinum: $41,575 ($650)
I'm an Android user, so the addition of Android Auto makes the 2018 Maxima my choice over last year's model. The 2018 Maxima is on sale now.
