The restyled 2009 Nissan Maxima S is arriving in showrooms bearing a marketing-friendly "under $30k" MSRP of $29,950, including destination. That's up from $28,790 for the base 2008 Maxima, money well spent if the 2009 Maxima's sporting intentions prove genuine. If the S is too basic for you, upgrade to a 2009 Maxima SV for $32,650.
