Take a look at the results before coming in for a test drive!

Engine Power

Under the hood, the Nissan Maxima features a mightier engine than the Acura TLX, supporting drivers with much more power to take them where they want to go.

  • A 3.5L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine comes standard onboard the Maxima, delivering an impressive 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque.
  • In contrast, the Acura TLX’s 2.4L DOHC base engine produces just 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Even the TLX’s available, upgraded 3.5L V6 engine doesn’t exceed the Maxima’s standard engine power, generating just 290 hp.

Standard Amenities

The Nissan Maxima also delivers many standard features that the Acura TLX does not – they are either not available at all for the TLX models or are only offered as available upgrades for a higher cost. Included among them are amenities like:

  • Front fog lights
  • Remote engine start
  • Distance pacing cruise control
  • Voice-activated audio control
  • Integrated navigation system with voice activation
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Intelligent Brake Assist

Interior Space

Interior spaciousness is also greater onboard the Nissan Maxima—a fact both drivers and passengers will greatly appreciate.

Both the Maxima and the Acura TLX provide seating for five occupants, but the Maxima offers more space for passengers to get comfortable in – up to 98.6 cubic feet of passenger space compared to just 93.3 cubic feet in the TLX. Cargo room is greater, as well, with the Maxima offering 14.3 cubic feet of standard trunk space compared with just 13.2 cubic feet of standard trunk space in the TLX.

The Maxima also offers more front head room than the TLX (up to 39.4 inches compared to just 37.2 inches in the TLX), more front leg room (45.0 inches compared to only 42.6 inches in the TLX), and more rear shoulder room (55.7 inches compared to only 55.4 inches in the TLX).
