If you dream of driving a new Nissan four-door sedan, the 2023 model year is your last opportunity to own or lease a new Nissan Maxima. However, several other superb options exist if you intend to shop the new Nissan lineup for your next sedan.
The Nissan Altima is the most similar sedan to the Maxima in the automaker’s 2024 model lineup. The Altima is similarly sized to the Maxima. Many sedan buyers shop and compare the Nissan Altima vs. Nissan Maxima when searching for their next car, so if you can’t find a brand-new Maxima, the midsize Altima should be on your list.
The Sentra is the next Nissan sedan alternative to the Maxima. The Nissan Sentra is a compact sedan that is smaller than the Maxima. However, it still shares many interior features and technologies with more luxe models like the Maxima.
Thirdly, Maxima shoppers can consider an even more affordable and economical alternative like the Nissan Versa. As the smallest sedan in the Nissan lineup, the subcompact Versa’s strengths are its efficiency and value. Consider the competitively priced Versa small sedan as a cost-effective option to the larger, discontinued Maxima at your nearby Nissan dealer.
