9. 2013 Nissan Maxima

Topping the LaCrosse by less than one cubic foot is Nissan’s sporty Maxima. Its aft cargo hold offers up a decently generous 14.2 cubic feet of luggage space.

Trunk-to-trunk it may top the Buick, but it trails far behind in passenger volume. Interestingly, at a little less than 96 cubic feet it offers the lowest interior volume of all the cars in this comparison. But that shouldn’t be too much of a surprise given that it’s tied with another car for the shortest overall wheel base at a tidy 109.3 inches.

The Nissan Maxima is powered by a rip-snortin’ 290 horsepower version of the company venerated VQ V6. Torque output is a competent 261 lb-ft at 4,400 RPM. An Xtronic CVT handles “shifting” duties. An interesting transmission choice for a sedan the company calls a “4-Door Sports Car.”

    Who the fuck cares about the size in cubic feets ?!?! FFS !
    This review becomes absolutely irrelevant by using that obsolete metric system!

    You dumb fuck! The metric system is the standard everywhere in the world except in the U.S. Your ignorance is disgusting!

    You are both about as ignorant as one can get. Cubit “Feet” is not metric. It’s English. Did either of you ever graduate the third grade? Apparently you spent your educational years picking your noses and learning colorful metaphors.

    Varga: isn’t that a Hungarian name???? If so you come from a rather unique background and the best you can do it use language to show your ‘low class and degraded vernacular skills, shame on you!

    The CVT can be a sporty transmission, if not a bit more maintenance-intensive–remember, no shifting means more time in the powerband, great for that 80-120 passing acceleration on the highway. Nissan’s Xtronic is a whole lot better than the hunk of junk Dodge was using in the Caliber, if that’s what you’re worried about.

    They’re all so ugly and look like hatchbacks. There was a time when sedans had class and distinction. I hope it returns.

    I think you can consider yourself in the same category dude – cubic feet is a unit of volume , not just plain english !
