Need to keep an eye on your tire pressure? No pressure

While the other luxury sedans in the segment might offer a feature that tracks the pressure in its tires, the 2020 Maxima also includes the convenience of Easy-Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Class-Exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert, which gives you an audible signal with the horn when the tire you are filling reaches right pressure. That's something these out of segment competitors don't offer either. [[2615]][[2816]]

Looking two steps ahead
