Toronto, Ont. – Today at the 2019 Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS), the latest versions of two historic nameplates made national debuts – the Nissan Maxima sport sedan and Pathfinder sport utility vehicle, in the form of the Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition.
With its captivating performance stance, 19-inch diamond-cut wheels, boomerang signature LED lighting framing the enlarged V-motion grille, the new 2019 Nissan Maxima is sure to capture the attention of show goers at the 2019 CIAS, following the global reveal at the 2019 L.A. Auto Show.
On the heels of its unveiling at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition is on display at the Nissan booth in Toronto. The Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition offers unique exterior and interior treatments that emphasize the rugged Pathfinder heritage, including a new exterior colour, Midnight Pine. It goes on sale this spring with a starting M.S.R.P. of $41,5981 for the Pathfinder SV Rock Creek Edition.
"We are proud to offer a portfolio covering the needs of over 90 per cent of the Canadian market. With the 2019 Maxima and 2019 Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition, we are reiterating our commitment to offer a full and fresh lineup to Canadians," says Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada Inc. "Maxima and Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition are also symbolic of our ethos at Nissan – to offer innovation and excitement to everyone. Whether it’s through the spirited drive of Maxima’s V6 engine, or the exceptional capability akin to Pathfinder’s spaciousness and best-in-class towing capacity, we are conveying that Nissan performance and fun-to-drive persona span the segments."
The sport sedan legacy continues
Maxima's aggressive, updated exterior appearance was created by Nissan Design America in La Jolla, Calif. and features a more voluminous front grille with a deeper V-motion flow that carries into the hood and down the body to the redesigned rear tail lamps and rear fascia. The standard jewel-like LED headlights and Nissan Signature Daytime Running Lights add to the Maxima's premium, high performance appearance, along with the new, deep fascia design.
The new rear fascia includes integrated quad-tip exhaust finishers, while a new sport rear spoiler is also added to the Maxima SR grade. New wheel designs have been developed, capped off by the new 19-inch Hyper Silver wheels. In addition, a new premium exterior paint colour, Sunset Drift, has been added to the Maxima colour palette.
The new 2019 Maxima embraces the visionary Nissan Intelligent Mobility philosophy – which provides technology in a way that moves people to a better world. For Maxima, this includes the availability of Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of six advanced active safety and driver-assist technologies designed to help provide 360 degrees of active driver assistance, crash avoidance and pedestrian detection.
Safety Shield 360 includes Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Rear Intelligent Emergency Braking.
