Nissan is a vehicle marque that has a string of successful models to its name. These days, the brand focuses on providing practical cars and eco-friendly models. Still, the brand hasn’t forgotten about its performance vehicle niche. And that’s why one of the latest models you can get is the 370Z!

It’s a coupe for people that want an affordable, stylish and fast sports car. Sure, it’s no Porsche 911. But, that’s not what the 370Z is all about. It’s a car designed to put the fun back into everyday driving. And, unlike the Porsche, you won’t need a sell an arm and a leg to fund one. If you’re a fan of the Z, here’s why you ought to consider buying one:


What’s it like on the road?

As standard, the Nissan 370Z comes with a 3.7-litre V6 engine (hence the “370” bit in the model name). It boasts an impressive 331 brake horsepower from the factory and will keep up with the NISMO models. It has a zero to 60 mph time of only 5.3 seconds, putting it in Ford Mustang territory. The only difference is, of course, the Z isn’t a pony car!

The engine features continuously variable valve timing. In plain English, that means you can get sharper power delivery times and better torque. You can get the 370Z with a six-speed manual gearbox. But, if you prefer, there’s the option to get a seven-speed automatic instead.

Automatic models also benefit from selectable driver modes. You can use the paddle shifters or drive it like a manual with the Tiptronic lever.

Regardless of gearbox choice, you’ll notice one thing on the road. The car drives like a champ! For a start, it has almost equal weight distribution. The VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) system reduces under and oversteer.

And let’s not forget the tuned lightweight suspension system. This isn’t just a car you can drive on a Sunday. The Nissan 370Z is also a sports car you can throw around a racing track. Don’t believe me? Take a road test of the 370Z from any Nissan retail center and see for yourself!


Timeless Japanese styling

It’s no secret that cars from certain countries have particular styling. European cars these days are sculpted and boxy. American cars are just huge! But Japanese designers don’t reinvent the wheel. Instead, they look at what people like and what they hate when it comes to styling.

In this case, the Nissan 370Z has a mean stance and unmistakable Japanese design. It also builds from some of its past Z models. It even takes some design cues from the GT-R models of the 90s.

Refined cabin

Last, but not least, sitting inside the Nissan 370Z is a dream come true. It’s comfortable for both drivers and their passengers. It’s also near-silent inside while driving with the windows up. And the design and layout of the dash makes sense!

Take a look at this video review of the Nissan 370Z. I dare you to tell me if you’ve come across a better-looking cabin!
