Which sedan is better: Arteon or Maxima?

Efficiency is important to most sedan buyers, and that’s just the first category that the Arteon stands out in. The Arteon proves to be better in both the city and out on the highway. Even a small change in fuel economy can add up to serious money over the course of a year of driving. The Arteon helps you keep your money in your wallet.

Many people may avoid sedans because they believe them to be inferior in winter. With modern snow and ice removal though, sedans can be nearly as capable as their crossover and SUV counterparts. This gap shrinks to nearly zero when you add in all-wheel drive. Luckily, the Arteon has all-wheel drive available at every trim level with it even coming standard on higher trim levels. No such feature is offered on the Maxima for 2019.

The Arteon employs a unique design that still gives it the look of a sedan but the functionality of a hatchback. With the large trunk and the large opening, this car is perfect for loading more than most sedans and even some SUVs. Plus, you can easily fold those rear seats down to get up to 55 cubic-feet of cargo room.
