A longtime favorite on the market, the striking Nissan Maxima Sedan packs in plenty of luxury in a spacious package that equally emphasizes excellent performance. Popular amongst families, the new 2002 models are no exception, and are backed by Nissan's thorough warranty and reputation for quality and durability.

Available Models
In order to provide you with a broad range of standards and options, the 2002 Nissan Maxima Sedan is available in three models - Maxima GXE Sedan, Maxima SE Sedan, and Maxima GLE Sedan.

Interior Features
The well-appointed cabin of the base model Nissan Maxima GXE Sedan begins with steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, power windows, power door locks, HomeLink Universal Transceiver, cruise control, a handy cargo net, and tilt steering column. The list continues to include such standards as air conditioning, height adjustable center armrest, leather-wrapped gearshift, and an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat. The rear seat conveniently splits 60/40 and folds down to accommodate extra cargo, and a premium AM/FM stereo with cassette player and CD player is also standard fare.

Higher models add even more, among the examples being automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather upholstery, drilled metal pedals, simulated wood trim, four-way power passenger's seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, and an upgraded Bose audio system.

Exterior Features
Each Nissan Maxima GXE Sedan sports sixteen-inch five-spoke aluminum alloy wheels, while the SE and GLE models are fitted with seventeen-inch six-spoke aluminum alloy and seventeen-inch seven-spoke aluminum alloy wheels respectively. Each vehicle is built with lower-body side spoilers, dark titanium grille surround, and dual power outside mirrors. The SE and GLE feature chrome exhaust tip finishers, fog lights, and an optional power sliding glass sunroof with slide and tilt function.

Revving up under the hood of the front-wheel drive Nissan Maxima Sedan is an impressive 3.5-litre, DOHC, 24-valve, six-cylinder engine that pumps out 255 horsepower and 246 lb-ft of torque. Among the world-class specifications are double-tipped platinum spark plugs, continuously variable timing control, and variable intake manifold.

The standard transmission on the GXE and GLE models is a four-speed automatic, while the SE sports a fun six-speed manual transmission and also highlights a sport-tuned suspension.

The list of safety standards on the Nissan Maxima Sedan includes four-wheel ABS brakes, two-stage driver air bag, two-stage passenger air bag, three-point seatbelts, front and rear crumple zones, and side impact door beams.
