When you look at the key model information and specifications of both models, it's no surprise that they're so popular among drivers! Both the 2018 Nissan Maxima and 2018 Toyota Avalon offer impressive value when it comes to performance and efficiency. However, when you look at the two side-by-side, it's clear that the Nissan Maxima holds the edge over its Toyota competitor. Normally, drivers have to choose between a sedan that is either efficient or offers a lot of power, but not with the 2018 Nissan Maxima! You see that for the Toyota Avalon to be nearly as efficient as the Nissan Maxima, it sacrifices performance. But with the Nissan Maxima, you get even better efficiency and significantly more performance, at the same price! In many ways, it’s a best of both worlds! That's not all, though. The 2018 Nissan Maxima also offers numerous advanced safety features and driver-assist technologies to make the driving experience safer than ever. Like the Intelligent Cruise Control which maintains your speed and set distance between you and the car ahead, so you're not constantly adjusting your speed. Or the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which watches two cars ahead and can sense when a collision is imminent and warns the driver. Want to learn more about the 2018 Nissan Maxima?
