2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE Video
The 2007 Maxima ticks all the tech boxes, but it does so without much style. Despite its new continuously variable transmission, Nissan's flagship is less efficient than it should be.
The new Maxima gets a curvy body and borrows some cabin flavor from Infiniti.
The beefy little Nissan 350Z Roadster offers plenty of performance and a little cabin technology in the form of a navigation unit.
The 2006 Nissan Pathfinder is a solid performer that offers drivers and front passengers a plenitude of cabin comfort and technology without venturing in the realm of the luxurious. Rear passengers, however, will find the back seats a squeeze.
The 2008 Nissan Rogue doesn't rate highly as a tech car because of its lack of any major cabin gadgets, but we like its general usability and its continuously variable transmission.
The 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX is a fantastically fun car to drive spiritedly and show off to friends, but the lack of in-cabin technology and sudden engine power can make it a bit tiresome in everyday driving.
The Maxima picks up a lot of Infiniti DNA. We're cool with that.
The Hummer H3 makes up for a lack of power and gadgets with serious off-road capability and a comfortable cabin.
The Acura RSX Type-S makes the most of its technologically advanced engine, but it lacks gadgetry in the cabin.
The RX-8's video game looks and rotary engine give it a technology edge, but its lack of cabin gadgets keeps the focus on driving.
