Marlboro Nissan

2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 BMW 3 Series near Worcester, MA

The Maxima Will Pamper You On Every Drive!

We’d like to empirically prove that a luxurious vehicle doesn’t require a luxury-name badge. If you visit us at Marlboro Nissan, we think you’ll be pleasantly, ecstatically surprised at how comfortable, well-equipped, and powerful the 2017 Nissan Maxima is. We’re not just saying that, either! To prove our point, we’re going to pit the Maxima against a rival sedan in the luxury segment, the 2017 BMW 3 Series. If you think we have our work cut out for us, be ready to have us change your mind! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 508-573-5392 to speak with a knowledgeable member of our staff. You can also utilize the chat function to the bottom, right-hand side of your screen!

The first aspect of the vehicle we all think about when it comes to luxury is the interior. How comfortable is the cabin? What amenities does it provide? How integrated will it be to my phone? The Maxima really went no-holds-bar with its standard trim, providing a Remote Engine Start System1, as well as NissanConnect with Navigation featuring Apple CarPlayTM2. It’s beautifully displayed on the 8-inch multi-touch control color monitor in the center stack, where you’ll also access features such as the RearView Monitor3. While the BMW 3 Series does come standard with a rear-view camera, it just can’t claim the same level of lavishness that the Maxima can. The center stack screen on the standard 3 Series is only 6.5 inches and it can’t host anything quite comparable to Apple CarPlayTM2. It doesn’t have an automatic start function as is featured in the Maxima, either, only an Engine Start/Stop button, making it way less friendly come winter time when a warm cabin is crucial to a comfortable ride!

2017 Nissan Maxima SR in Coulis Red with optional features

There’s a good chunk of a luxurious ride that has to do with the responsive power inciting when you depress the accelerator pedal, and the Maxima comes prepared to deliver. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine is nothing short of unwaveringly confident. Pumping out 300 horsepower and 261 lb.-ft. of torque, it uses a Nissan Direct Ignition System and electronic drive-by-wire throttle for that immediacy you want when merging onto I-290. The BMW 3 Series performance levels may shock you — and not in the pleasant way the Maxima’s has. Its standard 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline-4 engine provides considerably less oomph, clocking in at a meager 180 horsepower. What fun is that? Despite also using Direct Injection paired with an 8-speed STEPTRONIC® automatic transmission, it doesn’t feature as much power as it feels like it should. You’ll have to dole out more cash for a higher trim if you want that V6 strength at your disposal.

When you visit us at Marlboro Nissan, you can get behind the wheel of a luxurious vehicle without paying that brand-name price — and we all know that it can be quite hefty! We hope that this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 BMW 3 Series near Worcester, MA, has helped you see the light, the reality behind these two sedans. Pay us a visit at 740 Boston Post Road East in Marlborough, MA, today!

I contacted this dealership after searching online on every Nissan Dealer in MA. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly. The salesperson (Brian Rogers) answered all my questions and showed me the exactly car I was looking for. The manager was very polite and assist in the negotiation of the price, since I was a certified Toyota salesperson in the past that wasn't an easy task. Bottom line, I'm very satisfied with the purchase experience on my new 2020 Rogue.
