The 2012 Nissan Maxima S midsize sedan receives a minor design refresh for 2012, which includes an updated front grille, new headlights and taillights, some new interior treatments, two new exterior colors and a new wheel design. Other exterior features for the Maxima S include automatic on/off headlights, power-adjustable side mirrors, LED taillights and dual chrome exhaust finishers. Inside, the Maxima comes well-equipped with such standard features as an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat, a 4-way power-adjustable passenger seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Nissan's Intelligent Key with push-button start. Other standard features include cloth upholstery, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a multifunctional trip computer, Bluetooth, power windows and door locks, and a tilt/telescoping steering with illuminated steering-wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls. In addition, a power sliding moonroof comes standard, along with an 8-speaker AM/FM audio system with an in-dash 6-CD changer and an audio input jack.

Power for the Maxima S comes from a 3.5-liter V6 generating 290 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque. The V6 links to an Xtronic CVT transmission with a manual-shift mode. Fuel economy numbers check in at 19/26 mpg. Standard safety features include Nissan's Advanced Air Bag System, as well as Vehicle Dynamic Control with traction control. The Maxima S rides on new 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with Fine Silver finish and all-season tires.
