The Nissan 370Z’s classic styling is pleasing to the traditionalist’s eye, as it boasts all the proportions of sports cars from years past while still looking modern. Its interior does much of the same and resists the temptation to get too boy-racer-like. The front seats are also comfortable enough for a road trip, though most of the comfort is left for its INFINITI sibling, the Q60.
Nismo models find clever ways to deliver a touch of uniqueness with their mild red highlights, but they have mostly shed all the wilder styling elements that made them stick out. This makes the higher-performing model more palatable for the masses.
Its simplicity does go a bit too far in its standard features list, as the 370Z lacks a standard infotainment screen, which is a must-have in today’s world. Also, models without the optional noise-cancelation technology can get a little loud on rougher roads and at higher throttle levels.
