See the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs Hyundai Sonata and Mazda6 Mid-Size Sedans in Midlothian, VA

The premium sedan is always a top choice for drivers who want to get the most out of their daily commute, weekend travels, and even their errands. But if you're buying on a budget, or just aren't ready to break into the true luxury market, you may be wondering how you can absolutely get the most for your money in Midlothian, Richmond, Chester, Glen Allen, and Mechanicsville VA.

Three midsize sedans likely spring to mind: the Hyundai Sonata, the Mazda6, and the 2017 Nissan Maxima. All offer impressive performance, practical fuel economy, modern styling, and a range of comfort features, as well as some new technology upgrades. But if you're looking for the true premium feel, the Maxima bests its competition in nearly every category.

Compare Nissan Maxima vs Hyundai Sonata vs Mazda6 for the ultimate sedan showdown, and see which of these four-door cars will be the best fit for your Virginia lifestyle.

Nissan Maxima vs Hyundai Sonata in Midlothian, VA

We know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover--but when you look at the Nissan Maxima next to the Hyundai Sonata, there's no comparison. From Nissan's "floating roof" design to a body that was created with rockets in mind, the Maxima's futuristic style is head and shoulders above Hyundai's comparatively stone-age look and feel.

  • The Sonata has less standard and available horsepower than the Maxima's standard 300 horsepower
  • With available Alcantara seat inserts and front Zero Gravity seats, the Maxima offers a comfortable ride quality that can't be matched by the Sonata
  • The Maxima does have a higher price tag than the Sonata, but it comes equipped with way more standard features, package options, and amenities

Nissan Maxima vs Mazda6 in Midlothian, VA

If you're looking for an incredibly fuel-efficient sedan that won't run you much at the gas pump, the Mazda6 might be your ideal choice (or, maybe, one of Nissan's many hybrid models). But if you want a car that you can actually enjoy, the Nissan Maxima and it's thrilling boost of horsepower blows the Mazda6 clean out of the water.

  • Like power? Mazda6 offers 184 HP at most--Maxima offers 300 HP standard
  • Standard features on the Maxima include remote engine start; RearView Monitor; NissanConnect with Navigation and Apple CarPlay. Is the Mazda6 nearly as well-equipped?
  • Nissan's Predictive Forward Collision Warning system is one of the most advanced driver-assist features on the market--Mazda's Forward Obstruction Warning may not be as readily available on the Mazda6 sedan

We aren't without bias--at Hyman Bros Nissan, we're constantly impressed by the value, performance, and comfort offered by the new 2017 Nissan Maxima. But if this stunning midsize sedan isn't at the top of your shopping list, we encourage you to take a second look.
