Overall Review

The 2015 Nissan 370Z continues the heritage of its much-loved sports car, the Nissan 350Z. It comes in a 2-door coupe body style and is also available as a convertible. The Nissan 370Z is available in numerous configurations, such as Base Manual, Base Automatic, Sport Manual, Sport Automatic, Sport Tech Manual, NISMO Manual, Automatic, and NISMO Tech Manual and Automatic, each of which come with a better and more powerful engine.

Performance

The 2015 Nissan 370Z runs on a Premium Unleaded V-6, 3.5-Liter Engine which is capable of generating an impressive 270 lb-ft torque and 332 HP. Not to mention, with the launch and stability control features, the vehicle definitely proves to be a beast on the road. The engine is capable of hitting a top speed of over 155 Mph and with the Sequential MPI fuel system, the vehicle is capable of giving 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway, which is pretty impressive for a sports car that runs on a V6 engine.

Exterior

The new 2015 Nissan 370Z hits the road as a 2-door coupe. In terms of exterior styling, there’s nothing much different and the car looks exactly like its 350Z counterparts. A little more detailing can be noticed on the rear and front-end of the car, giving an even sportier look than before. All one can say about the new 2015 Nissan 370Z is that it is one-sharp looking sports car which gives off a mean and aggressive look.

Interior

Inside the vehicle, there are plentiful of notable changes when compared to its 350Z counterparts. The interior space seems to be limited but nevertheless the vehicle is as sporty on the inside as it is on the outside. The interior features black and red leather Recaro seats and the steering wheel is also leather-made to improve grip and upscale feel. The center of the vehicle has an impressive HD monitor and comes with a number of controls and options.

Features

The basic 2-door coupe sports model comes with standard features, such as keyless entry, pushbutton start, Bluetooth connectivity, power-adjustable seats, and Bose Audio. However, the other sport and NIMSO tech models come with additional features, such as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, 7-inch touch display, rearview monitor, Homelink Universal Transmitter and auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Safety

All Nissan 370Z configurations come with standard safety features, including front and side curtain airbags, stability and fraction control, and anti-lock brakes. The NHTSA hasn’t yet rated the overall safety rating of the vehicle. Nevertheless, the car seems to be extremely strong and has so far done well in overall handling and performance, allowing drivers to maneuver past traffic without a hassle.

All in all, the Nissan 370Z definitely proves to be a monster, specs and performance wise, and is perhaps the best option if you are on a tight budget and are looking to buy a sports car. The basic 2-door coupe model is available for just $29,990.
