Intelligent Technology Features

Nissan Maxima Interior Technology

The Accord and the Maxima both come standard with push button start, but the Maxima takes it a step further by also providing their Intelligent Key doors. The Intelligent Key allows you to easily open both your doors and trunk at the touch of a button when you have your smart key inside your pocket or bag.

With this feature, you won’t have to be fumbling around with your keys when you’re trying to load up your trunk or get in your car quickly. Also, you don’t have to worry about accidentally locking your key in your car because when your engine is off and your key is in your Maxima, it won’t let you lock the doors. This prevents accidents that can derail your entire day from happening.

The 2019 Maxima also comes standard with a HomeLink®garage door opener, while this is just an available option in the Accord.

Interior Comfort

The driver’s comfort is a crucial part of the interior design since it’s the most used seat in the vehicle. The Maxima comes standard with an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, while the Accord only provides a 6-way manual-adjustable driver’s seat. In the Maxima, it’ll be much easier for the driver to find a comfortable position while on their commute.
