Why We Can't Let Go of the Nissan 370Z

According to The Car Connection, the Japanese automaker’s new Z is arguably the best to date, and we couldn’t agree more. The 2016 Nissan 370Z rear-drive sports car looks great, delivers well over 300 horsepower — and best of all — it provides top-notch driving dynamics and above-average ride quality, for the most part.

An Impressive Performer

The 2016 Nissan 370Z is a thing of beauty. At the base, the carmaker’s sexy/sporty-looking vehicle comes available in coupe and convertible form, drawing its power from a standard 3.7-liter V-6 pushing 332-hp and 270 pound-feet of torque. The engine, which by the way is a front-mid-style layout, can be paired with either a six-speed manual gearbox with SynchroRev — otherwise known as automatic rev-matching — or a seven-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Whatever you choose, you’re bound to enjoy the ride. (1)

Nissan’s coupe/convertible is nimble and powerful and more than just suitable for daily driving — it will add a bit of spice to your weekly routine, unless of course you opt for the Nismo trim. If that’s the case, then we suggest buying a pair of earplugs and driving your 350-hp beast to the track. Oh, and don’t forget to buckle up! (1)

So Much & For So Little

The 370Z — located at Ferman Nissan in Tampa (2) — hasn’t changed from last year, so don’t be surprised if Nissan’s 2016 model is even more appealing than the Audi TT, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang and Hyundai Genesis coupe. (3)

In fact, there isn’t a huge difference between the 2015 and 2016 model and that’s a good thing, as the 370Z is already a work of art. However, if you’re particularly interested in getting your hands on the latest Z-version, new features include a Deep Blue Pearl exterior color (3) and an optional Bose audio system that generates “canceling sound to hide droning low-frequency engine noise,” according to Autoweek. (4)

It all depends on the model. For example, if you opt for the 370Z Nismo coupe you get a GT-R-inspired style, light 19-inch Rays wheels, a performance suspension, larger brakes, and an Alcantara steering wheel, among many other elements. With the roadster, features like Bluetooth, USB input and 18-inch wheels are standard, and navigation, a Bose sound system, and heated and cooled seats are optional. (4)

Your best bet is to start with a test drive, which you can reserve via your Ferman Nissan dealer today. (2)
