What is the 2020 Nissan Maxima’s top speed?
I bought myself a Maxima, and it seems like a sporty car. How fast can a 2020 Nissan Maxima go?

You certainly know how to pick a car—Nissan is known for making reliable vehicles for reasonable prices. However, to bring it back to your question, the 2020 Maxima has a top speed of 145 mph. Just keep in mind that there’s more to a car’s top speed than just a number:
- Body profile—a major issue for attaining high top speeds is air resistance, so that’s why the fastest cars utilize streamlined body profiles.
- Engine power—you can’t drive without an engine, and to hit the highest speeds you’ll need an engine that can produce a lot of torque.
- Gear ratio—torque alone won’t get you up and going. The gear ratio in your vehicle is what turns the torque produced by the engine into power channeled to the tires, so a higher gear ratio means more speed.
While a little oversimplified, this explanation ought to help you understand what’s giving your car its get-up-and-go. Just be sure to not let the car get the better of you because a single ticket can impact your driving record for years and increase your insurance rates.
