Ugh at First Sight

...and then it sort of grows on you. The wierd, overstyled headlights are different for the sake of being different but not enough to spoil what is otherwise a fresh and powerful design.

2009 Nissan Maxima

Still displacing 3.5-liters, the engine is now rated at 290 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque. Horsepower is up 35 over the last model, while torque increases 9 lb-ft. Even with the boost in power, Nissan is claiming fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city. On the highway, the new sedan is rated at 26 mpg (1 mpg better than before).
