The Nissan Cefiro a32 is a Japanese-made machine manufactured from 1988 to 2003. The second family of Nissan Maxima a32 was released in 1994. In the Japanese market, the machine was sold under the name of Cefiro, but for other markets, it was exported under the name of Maxima. This model is very popular in the States and the Middle East. Our drivers were able to immediately love Maxima for its good reliability, spacious and comfortable interior. The whole model range is Nissan.


Looking at the Nissan Zefiro a32 sedan (or Maxima as it is commonly called in Europe), it is easy to find that the models for Arab and American drivers were produced slightly different from those for Europe. European Maxima is really recognizable by the QX label on the luggage compartment lid. Arab Nissans can be distinguished by vertical ribs on the grille, and on Europeans they are horizontal.

The back of Maxima is decorated with the Maxima mark. The American version is much larger and has its own personal rear and front end. On the road sections of the CIS countries you can find Europeans, who can be identified by the “plafond”, which stretches to the back of the truck. The body of the car belongs to the 3rd size.

In addition, we can add that Nissan Cefiro/Maxima took part in the film Forsage (2001). It was run by Vince (Matt Schultz). This and other car became famous all over the world.


The design of the Cefiro sedan looks not only stylish, but also free, combining different colors of the interior and the body. Every detail of the interior is thought out to the smallest detail, which allows to be extremely comfortable. On the rear seats the difference with the previous model is almost imperceptible. The restyled version has the same amount of space as its predecessor. The interior is full of leather interior.

Electrical seat adjustments are now available, so you can do it even on the move, without being distracted from the road. The 32 brand has a noticeably higher seating height, but you can quickly get used to it. Unfortunately, there is not a very large glove compartment, which has been tripled due to airbags. To some extent, this is compensated by the size of the box in the armrest.

You can just keep quiet about the climate control, because it works just fine there. The driver will definitely enjoy the outdoor temperature sensor. The instrument panel of the restyled version of Cefiro A32 looks very solid in comparison with the 30th model. Although the luggage compartment is not so huge, but 440 liters will be enough for the average driver.


Unlike the place of export, Maxima comes with different motors. Europe is supplied with vehicles with 6-cylinder petrol engines V6, with four valves per cylinder, volume 2.0 and 3.0 liters. The two-liter engine is capable of producing 140 hp. Relatively small degree of compression 9.5:1 allows to use 92-nd gasoline. All units are synchronized with the 5-speed manual as well as with the automatic 4-speed gearbox.

Moreover, Nissan with a 3-liter engine paired with mechanics demonstrates high dynamics of acceleration, which can be compared with a sports car. The car has a front wheel drive, which was new compared to previous car releases. Independent suspension on the rear and front axles is used. The suspension easily copes with unevenness on the road and is characterized by smooth running along with acceptable for this class of controllability.
