Most modern V6 engines range from 2.5L -4.0L. The 1990 Maxima came with a 3.0L V6...And..I haven't EVER heard of ANY car past or present having a 2.0L V6. The ONLY small displacement V6 that I do recall is the oddball 1.8L V6 that Mazda used in their MX-3 sports coupe in the early 90's. You might be better off just changing over to a 4 cylinder car if fuel economy is that critical to you. Altima or Sentra maybe? I cannot recommend the Nissan Versa, the car is 100% crap...not reliable + butt ugly..lol.
