You will love the new sculpted styling, brilliant performance and comfortable cabin.

The 370Z gets a couple of aesthetic tweaks on the outsides as well as the insides. The coupe gets a new 18-inch alloy wheels and a number of features that make it very attractive.

The new Nissan 370Z goes on sale this June and make many compromises in comfort for performance. The addition of an elective $3,030 Sport Package makes the performance of the Nissan Z even more superior. Priced at £28,000, the 370Z flatters the driver with the super-smooth gear changes that match the engine speed to wheel speed automatically. This is a sports car known for its strong value and high performance. Nissan 370Z, continues the tradition with the sixth generation of Z. The sharp reflexes and firm grip make 370Z one of the best handling Z yet. This is definitely a great choice for long drives. However, that road noise can get on your nerves on long commutes. Fans and novice will value the optional SynchroRev rev-matching feature.
This is a great vehicle, if you can look over a couple of downsides. The two-seat sports car is one of the most exciting to be in and is a fitting series to the Z’s heritage.
