9. 2013 Nissan Maxima
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.

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.”
