Nissan was the official automotive sponsor for BET Experience, and company officials thought this would be a good idea to present an 'all black everything' version of the 2016 Maxima sedan.
We've all seen the 2016 Nissan Maxima sedan in pictures, but what made the car popular around the Internet was a video showing Nissan's latest compete against the likes of BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Acura TLX 3.5 and come out champion in all areas.

Nevermind that, let's focus on the Maxima SR Midnight edition. As the name suggests, the version is based on the Maxima SR but adds a black touch to the car's karma and also sportier features, if we are to take Nissan's words for granted.

All in all, the Maxima SR Midnight offers Super Black exterior paint, a rear sport spoiler, rocker panel mouldings and a rear bumper diffuser along with splash guards and 19-inch black aluminum-alloy wheels.

Inside, the cabin was treated with Charcoal premium leather amenities and with Alcantara seat inserts. However, the car won't turn into the Dark Knight anytime soon because the engine working under the hood stays the same, namely the same 3.5-liter V6 delivering 300 horsepower.

Of course, the unit works in pair with a Xtronic transmission but, that's the same for all standard Maxima models out there.

To be honest, we would have liked to see a properly pumped-up Maxima with a dark soul and engine, for that matter. Maybe a Batman edition for the Maxima would solve this, don't you think?
