Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.
Last week we had a quintessentially American family saloon featured here on Generation Gap. This week we have a very Japanese car competing in the same segment, one that has evolved to embrace the American culture increasingly over the years. The venerable Maxima has had eight generations since its conception and today we compare the first four iterations. Which original pre 2000's Maxima was best?
First Generation [1981 - 1984] G910
Second Generation [1984 - 1988] PU11
Third Generation [1988 - 1994] J30 and facelift
Fourth Generation [1994 - 1999] A32 and facelift
