2022 Nissan Maxima Sport: Features and Specs
Nissan Canada’s 2022 Nissan Maxima Sport is designed for the family man who still wants the exhilaration of a sports car. If you are looking for a powerful, four-door family sport sedan, it is worth looking at this Nissan model.
All the 2022 Nissan Maxima Sport models feature the Nissan VQ 3.5L, 24-valve, V6 engine that produces 300 HP at 6,400 RPM. This powertrain is linked with an all-new Continuously Variable Transmission called the Xtronic CVT. This beautifully engineered transmission design includes dynamic step shifting, covers a wider gear ratio, and has an adaptive shift controller, which makes for a comfortable ride without increasing fuel efficiency (20mpg in town, 30mpg on the highway).
The interior is filled with special perks, including super-comfortable memory seats with independent climate control and a luxurious rear cabin with ample legroom -- it all invites a long journey. The sedan also features an uncomplicated on-the-go drive mode selector. The selector is well-positioned, and switching from Normal and Sport mode is super easy.

On the long journey, you can take your foot from the gas with Cruise Control. Driver alertness system is there to detect when you get sleepy.
A forward-collision warning system keeps you and your family safe from head-on collisions by detecting pedestrians crossing as well as auto brakes in front of you. It beeps when unintentional lane crossing is detected. The Xtronic CVT also assists with intelligent braking.
With the streamlined body, the 2022 Nissan Maxima Sport not only looks quick, it handles like a dream. The front end is fitted with an independent subframe-mounted strut/coil spring system, and the rear end has an independent multi-link double-wishbone design featuring ZF Sachs Monotube Dampers. These stiffer springs and large front stabilizer bars make for excellent handling.
The base model is fitted with aluminum rims and 245/45R18 all-season tires. The SR and Platinum models are equipped with gloss-black 19-inch rims and 245/40R19 all-season tires.
