LOS ANGELES – If you weren’t specifically told the Nissan Maxima sedan and Nissan Murano crossover received a redesign for 2019, you’d likely not notice.

I’m not being mean – Nissan just didn’t change much with either vehicle.

The Maxima gets mild exterior changes, including a larger grille, different rear fascia (includes quad exhaust tips), different rear taillights, and new wheel designs. Inside, the changes include a new seat insert and some trim-specific appointments. Speaking of that, there are two new available option packages.

There’s also a new available paint color, rear-door alert, and revisions to the available satellite radio and available factory navigation system.

Nissan also now makes its “Safety Shield 360� suite of driver-assist/safety tech (blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, high-beam assist, and rear automatic braking) available to Maxima buyers.

The refreshed Maxima goes on sale in December.

Also going on sale in December is the updated Murano. Like the Maxima, it has a larger grille. It has changed LED headlights and taillights, new LED fog lamps, three new available paint colors, and new 18- and 20-inch wheel designs. Interior changes amount mostly to minor material and appointment updates.

Like with the Maxima, “Safety Shield 360� is now available, and the available factory nav sees revisions. Rear-door alert is now standard.

Also just like the Maxima, the Murano goes on sale in December. We’ll be driving both soon, so stay tuned for reviews.
