Overview of the Nissan 370Z

Learn about the Nissan 370Z

Summary

The Nissan 370Z is Japan's answer to the muscle car. First introduced in 2009, it can trace its lineage back to the Datsun 240Z of 1969. The sporty two-door isn't for family driving—the distinct lack of a backseat is one reason why.

The 370Z follows tradition with a powerful V6 engine mounted up front, sending its power exclusively to the rear wheels. Available as a hardtop or convertible, with an automatic or manual transmission in plenty of trim levels, there's a Nissan 370Z for nearly any driving enthusiast's tastes.

Safety

Every model year of the Nissan 370Z is equipped with a healthy dose of safety features, including front, side-impact and curtain airbags. Additionally, the 370Z offers these standard safety features across model years:

  • Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), an electronic driving aid that applies brakes individually to prevent sliding
  • Tire pressure monitoring system, keeping a close watch on your inflation levels

Interior

The Nissan 370Z comes with a reasonable amount of in-car standard features, like an eight-way adjustable driver's seat, automatic temperature control and convenient push-button start. Three cup holders, power windows and cloth seats are also included. Available options include:

  • Ventilated partial-leather seating, offered with the Touring model (2011) and in select trims in newer model years
  • HomeLink universal garage-door opener (2011-2019)
  • Noise cancellation system for a quieter cabin (from 2016)

Despite a few updates over the last decade, some drivers find the general design of the 370Z's interior to be dated.

Technology

Every standard Nissan 370Z comes with a six-speaker audio system. An optional eight-speaker Bose system introduces Bluetooth and SiriusXM Satellite radio for maximum audio enjoyment, as well as a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Though, some driver say the optional touchscreen interface lags behind competitors' more user-friendly systems.

Newer tech features such as Apple CarPlay or other smartphone became available in the 2017 model year. 

Space

Inside the Nissan 370Z you'll find space for the driver and one passenger. The hatchback body style provides unrestricted access to the trunk space, while also letting more light into the cabin. The trade-off with this benefit is more road noise.

Drivers looking for even more sunlight should check out the Nissan 370Z convertible. Its power-operated cloth top can lower in around 20 seconds. The top separates the trunk from the cabin in the Roadster, but it's still big enough to store your gear.

Comfort

The Nissan 370Z sits on the sporty end of the spectrum. This is car known for high performance, with a sports-tuned double-wishbone front suspension that keeps the tires connected to the road, even during hard cornering. Power comes exclusively from Nissan's strong V6 engine, putting down 332 horsepower in all models, and the NISMO bumps this to 350 hp—that's more than other cars in its class. Most models come with a six-speed manual as standard, but newer Roadster models around 2017 have an optional seven-speed automatic transmission.

The boost in power does mean more fuel consumption, too. Fortunately, the Nissan 370Z comes with a large 71.9 L fuel tank, making fuel stops slightly less frequent.

Pros and cons of the Nissan 370Z

  • Fun-to-drive two-door, two-seat sports car
  • Available as coupe or convertible
  • Manual or automatic transmission
  • Limited visibility due to low roofline
  • Convertible option is more costly
  • Limited cabin and trunk space
