From Nissan press:
The iconic Nissan Maxima, the original and continuing 4-Door Sports Car™, once again in 2011 fuses the soul of a sports car with the practicality of a sedan. With its breakthrough sports sedan styling, refined interior and a range of available advanced technology features, Maxima provides passengers with ample comfort and luxury while also creating a thrilling, sporty feel for the driver. Maxima is again offered in two well-equipped models, Maxima 3.5 S and Maxima 3.5 SV, each equipped with a responsive 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine and Xtronic CVT™ transmission.
For 2011, Maxima adds a few new touches, such as the fine-tuning of its color palette and available Sport Package option. Revisions include new rolled edge tailpipe finisher; new smoked headlights (Sport models); new dark chrome grille (Sport models); and unique shiny gray interior stitching (Sport models). Also added are two new exterior colors: Brilliant Silver and Metallic Slate.
