Nissan Maxima vs. Acura TLX

The 2018 Nissan Maxima brings comfort, performance and style into one beautiful package. The new Maxima drives like a sports car while looking like a luxury sedan.

You can choose your drive mode, normal or sport. When you put it in sport, you’ll feel a sharpened acceleration, steering feel and transmission tuning. Sport mode enhances the drive.
