Luxuries, cutting edge design and feature-packed models are the focus of the brand.

2016 models are rolling into dealership showrooms and ads for these cars are about to dominate Sunday football broadcasts.

Expect to see the Nissan Maxima among them, and if your’e in the market for a sedan, plan to go see it. You’ll be surprised.

The term ‘4DSC’ is seen on the tail lights of the 2016 Nissan Maxima. It stands for 4-Door Sports Car, which was the original idea behind the Maxima

The Maxima is Nissan’s well-priced work horse sedan, and is great for commuting, sor for mall families or drivers who sometimes have passengers or cargo. But it’s also well-loved by its loyal customers, and for good reason: dubbed the ‘4-Door Sports Car’ when it was first introduced, it’s fun to drive, its design is always ahead of the crowd and it’s reliable: Nissan is known for low maintenance and going the distance; some customers have been known to drive their Nissans 200,000 miles or more.

But the 2016 Maxima takes the Nissan DNA to new level: Nissan is focused on winning 10% market share in the US, and to accomplish that, the company is packing its models, including the recently redesigned Murano, with luxuries, technology and features that would typically be found in more expensive luxury cars.

We took a ride to in the 2016 Maxima recently. Priced from $32,000 to about $39,00 for the Platinum edition, the redesigned Maxima was impressive. Here are some of the features in the car we really liked:
