Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
Maxima monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead and can let you know if you need to slow down. It can also automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks.
Rear Automatic Braking
Save your bumper. Maxima with Rear Automatic Braking watches out directly behind you for large stationary objects you might not see. If it detects something and you fail to stop, it can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a rear collision or lessen the severity of an impact.
Blind Spot Warning
Wait. Was that a car over there? Maxima with Blind Spot Warning keeps an eye on the blind spot area and gives you a heads-up if it detects a vehicle hiding there.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Fear no parking lot. When you’re backing out of a space, Maxima with Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Maxima and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side.
Lane Departure Warning
Hold it right there. Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. If the system detects that you’re drifting over, haptic feedback on the steering wheel can let you know.
High Beam Assist
Standard High Beam Assist helps out with night vision, while being considerate of your fellow drivers. It automatically switches to low-beam headlights when it detects a vehicle ahead and turns the high beams back on when you need them.
