2019 Altima vs. Maxima: Standard and Available Features

Both Nissan sedans offer a stunning range of standard technology across all trims, including a NissanConnect 8-inch touchscreen display with navigation and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility.

However, the Nissan Maxima concentrates a little more on comfort by offering:

  • Heated and Cooled Front Seats
  • Premium Ascot Leather Seats with Diamond-Quilted Leather Inserts

The Nissan Altima misses those features, but it does include several driver assistance technologies unavailable with the Nissan Maxima, including:

  • Intelligent Driver Alertness
  • Traffic Sign Recognition

For added safety between Naperville and Woodridge, Altima features win out. For added comfort around Countryside, nothing touches the Maxima.
