2018 Nissan Maxima vs. 2018 Toyota Avalon

2018 Midsized Showdown: Nissan Maxima vs. Toyota Avalon

Drivers in Georgia who are in the market for a mid-sized sedan with all the luxury at a great price have two good options. Both the 2018 Nissan Maxima and the Toyota Avalon have some nice upgrades this year; however, for driving enthusiasts there is only one choice.

The 2018 Nissan Maxima

One stop at Walker Jones Nissan in Waycross for a test drive will prove why the new Maxima is referred to as the 4-door sports car. The 2018 model has been even further improved to bring you a lighter, stronger, and more stable drive than the competition. The new Maxima makes drives from Waycross, Georgia to Valdosta more fun than ever with the push button sport tuning. Combine this with paddle shifters and simulated gear ratios on the CVT transmission, and you will find the car as crisp as many of its more expensive competitors.

Luxurious Interior

Nissan spared no detail outfitting the cabin of the new Maxima with every amenity modern luxury has to offer. Heated and cooled seats with simulated or real leather depending on the trim level will make a trip down to Jacksonville a quiet, comfortable experience.

Active Safety

If you start to get too comfortable, driver attention monitoring will alert you when it is time to take a break for safety. The safety features don’t end there with motion sensitive proximity sensors that cover 360 degrees around the car, so you never have to worry about hitting unseen obstacles. The airbags and restraint system along with expertly engineered impact zones give this Maxima model a great impact rating.

Sports Sedan

If you have to commute from Tifton or Brunswick, the Maxima gets good gas mileage for a mid-sized sedan with 21/30 city/highway MPG. The engine is both powerful and fuel efficient as well. One area where the Avalon edges out the Maxima is rear seat and trunk room. The Avalon is great for long distance cruising on the highway but can’t match the Maxima on performance.

The next time you find yourself near Waycross, Georgia stop by Walker Jones Nissan and take a new 2018 Maxima for a spin. This is one car which lives up to the hype. Come see the 2018 Nissan Maxima and put the excitement back into driving today.
