A little flash in performance combines with a high-end spacious interior for a mid-sized personal luxury sedan that suits all kinds of drivers, from work to play, weekday to weekend. Equipped with a 3.5-liter, 265-hp V6 engine and choice of 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic, the 2005 Nissan Maxima SE gets a short-shift throw this year, as well as updated optional leather upholstery, an extra power outlet, and optional satellite radio and auto-dimming exterior mirrors.
4-wheel ABS brakes, dual front-side and rear side impact bags, 18-inch alloy wheels, and traction control earn four and five-star safety ratings. Other standard equipment on the 2005 Maxima SE include full power features, a power driver's seat, automatic headlights, cruise control, remote entry, wheel-mounted audio controls, leather trim, a trip computer, dual-zone climate control, a CD player, and a sunroof. Memory settings, a power passenger seat, heated seats and mirrors, a navigation system, and xenon headlights are some of the add-ons available. Fun to drive and lots of power and acceleration excite owners of the 2005 Maxima SE, who also like the standard features and overall style. A wide turning radius and so-so 20/29 fuel economy are some downsides.

The 2005 Nissan Maxima SL is the more high-end offering of the mid-sized luxury sedan, and has many features that are only optional on the SE. It is powered by a 265-hp, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine and 5-speed auto tran, garnering 20/28 mpg. Riding on 17-inch alloy wheels, it comes with 4-wheel ABS brakes, six airbags (dual front-side and rear side), traction control, xenon headlights, and automatic headlights. The front-wheel drive sedan seats four, with split-folding rear seats and a 15 cubic foot trunk.
Updated leather upholstery and a new power outlet are added this year, joining the full power feature set, including power front seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, heated mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless entry, a CD changer, wheel-mounted audio controls, leather trim, a sunroof, and a trip computer. New options include auto-dimming exterior mirrors and satellite radio. Retractable mirrors, memory settings, and heated seats and steering wheel are other add-ons. An SL-only option is stability control. 2005 Maxima SL owners love the roomy interior, standard features, power, and styling, but dislike the uncomfortable front seats, wide turning radius, interior materials, and tiny dash buttons.
