Nissan Maxima is one of the oldest Japanese cars on the US market. Maxima is the longest continuous running Nissan nameplate in the U.S., linking back to 1981, the year Maxima was first sold in US.

The first four decades of the car are celebrated with limited production Maxima 40th Anniversary Edition.

Now in its eighth-generation, Maxima’s storied history as an authentic sports sedan goes back even farther to the Datsun Bluebird 810 of the late 1970s. The 1981 Datsun 810 – often described as a larger interpretation of the legendary Datsun 510 – was the first to carry the Maxima nameplate.
