This doesn’t mean the Maxima has returned to the glory days of the high-volume 4DSC. As recently as 2004, Nissan sold more than 430 Maximas per month. As Nissan began marketing the Altima as its core midsize car, however, and began to make the Altima available with the Maxima’s engine, the Maxima waned. (Unfortunately, Altima sales have waned, as well.)

With a strong October performance, the Maxima trailed only the Dodge Charger and Chevrolet Impala in terms of full-size sedan Canadian sales volume last month. 

This means the Maxima easily outsold the Chrysler 300, Ford Taurus, Buick LaCrosse, Hyundai Genesis, and Kia Cadenza. 

Meanwhile, the Maxima’s compatriot, Toyota’s Avalon, slid 14% to only 68 October sales, one-third the Maxima’s total.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes – Hyundai USA doesn’t yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe – the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
