2014 Nissan 370Z Overview

One of most iconic—and affordable—sports cars of all time is Nissan's Z-car. It can be purchased as a coupe or convertible, and there's also the Nismo, a high-performance model that comes only as a coupe.

The current model is on its last model year. Look for an all-new 370Z in 2015.

What's New for 2014

In an interesting marketing move, Nissan reduced the MSRP for 370Z coupes in Base and Touring trim by up to $3,130—convertibles and the Nismo coupe remain at previous price points.

Choosing your Nissan 370Z

The standard Z was freshened for 2013, and is powered by a 332-hp version of Nissan’s VQ series V6. It offers the option of a seven-speed automatic transmission; the standard six-speed manual is standard.

Buyers choose from three trim levels:


The Base 370Z, like the Touring, is available as a coupe or convertible, and offers lots of performance for the price. (The MSRP for a coupe is just under $30,000.) Standard equipment is relatively sparse, but includes push-button start and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat. The Sport Package ($3,030) added euro-tuned shocks, sport brakes, rev matching with manual transmissions, 19-inch alloy wheels, and spoilers.


It adds more than $5,000 to the base price of a 370Z, but the Touring model includes plenty of upgrades like HID headlights, a Bluetooth phone system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, satellite radio, leather upholstery, heated seats, and a Bose audio system. The Sport Package is also available at the Touring level, as is a $2,150 Navigation Package.


The coupe-only Nismo continues to offer a 350-horsepower version of the 3.7-liter V6 mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. Other enhancements include a sport-tuned suspension and brakes, and 19-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels. Special design touches remind passengers and bystanders alike that this is a special vehicle.

CarsDirect Tip

The 370Z packs so much value into each model that we can easily recommend a Touring model—whether coupe or convertible. Those in search of high performance at a bargain price won't be disappointed by the Nismo.

When you negotiate a price, remember that this is the model's last year.
