Overall I like the styling. Just like many of things, there must be give and take. I think the new Maxima SR is probably the best of the different choices, but I was disappointed that Nissan did not include power tilt and telescopic steering column as an option like they did previously with their 2014 sport model. I have owned a 2012 Maxima with sport package and now a 2014 Maxima with premium package and I very much like the power tilt and telescopic steering column with memory control. Nissan also forgot to include the side mirror tilt down option and drivers side mirror auto dimming availability. To anyone that knows the Maxima will definitely miss these options if they want to buy the Maxima SR. I think the front end of the new Max is more sporty, but I don't like the rear trunk quite as much as the 2014 model. It looks to short and to plain for me, but other folks may like it better. The roof line seems chopped quite low, but as long as visibility is good then I would be fine with that. Nissan should provide their customers more choice of options within each of the different versions. Does anyone remember when the 7th generation first came out? Nissan basically did the same thing by not offering certain type options to the sport model or the premium model, but after a couple of years they had learned that customers really wanted some of the unavailable options and then made them available. Hopefully they will do the same thing with the 8th generation Maxima.
