Nissan upgrades Maxima

The Nissan Maxima 350 Ti has an 'intelligent' rear sunshade that can be raised at the flick of a switch.

For 2012 the Nissan Maxima 350Ti now features Nissan's new Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS).

AFS automatically turns on low beam according to vehicle speed and adjusts the lighting pattern based on steering input to enhance night time visibility by compensating for the curvature of the road.

However unlike other adaptive light systems, the left hand low beam also illuminates the chosen direction of travel when the driver is stopped at a crossroad, based on the position of the direction indicator. 

Nissan Maxima 350 Ti also introduces a unique Side View Camera on the passenger side mirror that allows the driver to see the front left side of the vehicle a common blindspot through the car's Satellite Navigation monitor.

This enhances safety by assisting the driver with parking and visibility of small objects. It can be turned on and off via a button on the centre console as required. 

A further innovation introduced on the Nissan Maxima 350 Ti is an 'intelligent' rear sunshade that can be raised at the flick of a switch.

Adding further value to Maxima, 250 ST-L and 350 ST-S models now get a new, fully integrated Bluetooth hands-free system with steering wheel controls. Prices remain unchanged, from $33,990.
