Standard Fuel Economy

The 2016 Nissan Maxima’s only available engine is a 3.5L V6, which comes in just under the Impala at an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway and 22 mpg city.
If performance is your priority, then upgrade your Impala’s engine to beat out the Maxima. LT and LTZ trims of the Impala are offered with an available 3.6L V6 engine that pumps out a commanding 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque, while the Maxima’s only available 3.5L V6 serves up an inferior 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque.
