Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2015 Nissan 370Z OVERVIEW
The 370Z began life back in 2003 but under the 350Z name. In 2009, however, Nissan upped the Z-car's displacement from 3.5 liters to 3.7 liters and the 37-Z was born. Throughout its life, the 370Z has undergone only a handful of changes, the majority of them new tech features that help keep the model up to date.
What's New for 2015
The standard 370Z sees few changes, save for optional sport brakes, revised steering and suspension, and some new features in higher trim levels. The Nismo model, on the other hand, received new styling and an optional seven-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, the Nismo Tech trim debuts in 2015.
Choosing Your 370Z
The 370Z is one like many modern sports cars in that it starts off with only the basic features at a rather low price, but has a slew of trims and options available that can drive the price sky-high. Selecting the perfect 370Z depends on what you want out of it. If you are on a tighter budget and need a go-fast machine but can live without premium options, the Z has that. If you are a discerning buyer looking for a fully loaded sports car, the 370Z has it. Moreover, if you're looking for a true performance machine with race car-like suspension and upgraded brakes, the Nissan 370Z has that, too.
With the exception of Nismo models, all 370Zs have a 3.7-liter V6 that produces 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. All come with a standard six-speed manual gearbox, but a seven-speed automatic is optional across the board.
Unless you are planning to take it to the track every weekend, we suggest passing on the Nismo models. They ride rather roughly, don't come with many premium features, and are expensive.
Much like previous months, Nissan offers strong finance incentives. In the case of the 2020 Murano, buyers have the option of a potential $6,000 in rebates or 0% APR for 36... View All Nissan Lease Deals
