Overview

The Nissan Z series has been around for roughly 46 years, and for most of those years the recipe has stayed more or less the same. The Z series has always been a two-seater performance car that is a ball to drive and comes with a reasonable starting price.

The 370Z is back for 2017 despite rumors that it may have been on its way out. While it managed to stay in production, the 370Z is basically unchanged from last year with color choices being the only major change and pricing remaining the same as 2016.

What's New for 2017

The 370Z is a holdover with almost nothing changing, including the price. A new, bright yellow paint color called Chicane Yellow is available as an option on any non-NISMO trim. Magma Red will no longer be offered as a color choice.

Choosing Your Nissan 370Z

The 370Z keeps its 3.7-liter V6 engine under the hood, which cranks out 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed automatic. The high-performance NISMO 370Z keeps the same engine under the hood but ups the horsepower to 350 via a different exhaust system and software adjustments.

The 370Z starts at $30,825 for a base model coupe and goes all of the way up to $48,100 for the Roadster Touring Sport. It's available as a Coupe and a soft-top Roadster and each comes in a variety of trim levels that determine how a car is equipped—there aren't any options except for the $1,300 automatic transmission.

Nissan 370Z

Base

The base 370Z comes with an impressive list of standard features that includes automatic climate control, keyless entry and start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-way adjustable driver seat and a Bluetooth enabled stereo system. The exterior is jazzed up with 18-inch black-finish aluminum-alloy wheels and HID headlights. The base model Coupe is priced from $30,825, while the Roadster starts at $41,820.

Sport

The Sport trim is only available on the Coupe and adds a viscous limited-slip differential that enhances traction by distributing power to the rear wheels. The Sport also receives 19-inch RAYS forged wheels, a rev-matching feature, and front and rear spoiler. The interior moves to a premium Bose audio system with eight speakers. The starting price of $33,570 is unchanged from 2016.

Sport Tech

The Sport Tech adds a number of convenience items to the performance features of the Sport. These includes a 7-inch touchscreen navigation system with Sirius XM, Travel Link and more; a rearview camera; and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a Homelink transmitter. Pricing for this Coupe-only trim starts at $37,070.

Nissan 370Z

Touring

The Touring trim dials back the sport car features and ups the luxury factor. The 19-inch wheels, upgraded brakes and viscous limited-slip differential of the Sport models are gone but it gains heated leather seats, the navigation system, rearview camera and the auto dimming mirror. The Bose 8-speaker stereo comes standard on the Touring trim. The Touring Coupe is priced at $37,970 while the Roadster version will set you back $45,270. The Roadster is also available in a Touring Sport Trim, which adds back in the 19-inch wheels, upgraded brakes and Viscous limited-slip differential but bumps the price up to $48,100 making it the top-of-the-line Roadster in the 370Z lineup. The Coupe is not available in the Touring Sport trim.

Nissan 370Z

NISMO

The NISMO is the ultimate performance-oriented 370Z. Under the hood is the same engine but it has been tweaked to crank out 350 horsepower. It also adds massive 14-inch 4-piston brakes, a free-flow dual exhaust, specially tuned suspension, and 19-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels.

The interior is decked out as well with a Recaro leather-appointed seats with Alcantara inserts as well as a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The NISMO costs $41,990

Nissan 370Z

NISMO Tech

This trim keeps all of the performance features of the NISMO and ups the convenience factor with the navigation system, rearview monitor, upgraded audio system and the Homelink rearview mirror. The NISMO Tech comes with a starting price of $45,490.

CarsDirect Tip

If super-high-end performance is the most important thing to you, the NISMO is the only choice, but the Sport Tech model also provides a performance orientated ride combined with the tech conveniences many drivers crave. Even at the low end, the base model is packed with performance at a very affordable price point in this category.

The Nissan 370Z is a two-seat sports car offered in coupe, NISMO, and roadster configurations. It's an iconic model, tracing its heritage to the days of Datsun. The 370Z is an ideal alternative for GT-R aspirants, especially for individuals whose pockets aren’t deep, but who still prize Nissan performance prowess.

Pricing and Equipment

The 2017 Nissan 370Z is available in coupe and roadster body styles. This rear-wheel drive model is sold in 370Z (Base), Sport, Sport Tech, Touring, NISMO, and NISMO Tech trims for the coupe. Roadster models are available in 370Z (Base), Touring, and Touring Sport trims.

Most models are powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine creating 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic transmission. The 370Z Coupe makes an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with the manual transmission, and 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway when paired with the automatic transmission.

NISMO models get the same engine and transmissions, but the engine is enhanced with an H-configured exhaust system design and muffler tuning and engine control calibration. As a result, these models make 350 horsepower and 276 pound-feet of torque.

The 370Z was introduced in 2009 and represents a long line of “Z” models. Now in its ninth model year, the current model remains mostly unchanged from its significant refresh of two years ago.

The standard 370Z Coupe 6MT model costs $29,990. Choose the automatic and your price is $31,290. The 370Z Coupe Sport 6MT model is priced from $33,570. Choose the automatic and you’ll pay $34,870. The 370Z Coupe Sport Tech 6MT model costs $37,070. The automatic version will cost you $38,370. Purchase the 370Z Coupe Touring 6MT model and you’ll pay from $37,970 or $39,270 for the automatic.

NISMO models are priced as follows. The 370Z Coupe NISMO 6MT starts at $41,990 and the automatic costs $43,290. Choose the 370Z Coupe NISMO Tech 6MT and you’ll pay from $45,490 or $46,790 for the automatic.

Roadster prices are as follows. The 370Z Roadster 7AT costs $41,820. The 370Z Roadster Touring 6MT is priced from $45,270 and $46,570 for the automatic. The 370Z Roadster Touring Sport 6MT costs $48,100 while the automatic is priced from $49,400.

Prices do not reflect $835 destination charge.

Performance Pros

Nissan 370Z
  • Any way you look at it, the 370Z is a performance machine and especially so when dressed in NISMO garb. For those who prefer to shift for themselves, the manual transmission is a thrill and the clutch offers smooth uptake. The SynchroRev downshifts are the clincher here.
  • Choose the NISMO if you are a track aspirant. Not only is it dressed to take on laps, our reviewers found it to be a non-compromise track car.

Performance Cons

  • The ride is firmer than what we like and the steering is indirect. Small demerits, nevertheless.

Interior Pros

Nissan 370Z
  • You won’t confuse the 370Z with certain German competitors, but that doesn’t mean the interior is without merit. Our reviewers found the leathers, upholstery and switchgear felt durable and supple.
  • Again, the NISMO models offer something not found in the other models, including black-and-red Recaro leather-appointed sport seats. You’ll appreciate the superior hold when accelerating and cornering.

Interior Cons

  • The cabin is snug and confining. Tall people should find the driver’s seat fine with some adjustment, but the overall cockpit is still cramped.
  • The Roadster’s cargo space is tiny, measuring just 4.2 cubic feet. If you’re by yourself, that’s one thing. But if you and your beau are planning a weekend getaway, you’ll need to pack lightly.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

We’re glad Nissan held the line on prices from last year. That’s a smart move on Nissan’s part as a base model can still be had for about $30,000.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

We love roadsters, but the 370Z convertible delivers too much wind noise. Press the V6 to its limits and you’ll hear the engine howl. Although engine chatter is music to every enthusiast’s ear, it becomes old after aa while.

The Bottom Line

The 2017 370Z is showing its age and needs an update. Another downside is the paucity of customizing options. It's competitors offer far more choices. Despite these shortcomings, we like that the Z remains available. We also know that although the wait has been long, what will eventually follow should meet our expectations.
