2017 Nissan 370Z
The Nissan 370Z made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show back in 2008, and was introduced as the official replacement for the 350Z. The two-door, two-seater sports car has been offered as both a coupe and as a roadster, and has enjoyed plenty of success during its relatively brief time on the market. The newest 2017 Nissan 370Z is now available at local car dealerships, and is one of the best versions of the sports car to date.
Still available in either a coupe or a roadster body style, traditional sports car drivers will love the newest 370Z as much as those who enjoy the wind blowing through their hair on the open road. There are plenty of reasons why buyers are opting for the Nissan 370Z over other sports cars on the market – including an attractive starting MSRP of under $30,000. Click on each tab to discover more about the 370Z, and why it just might be the sports car you have been looking for.
As much as we love talking performance and power on the latest version of the 370Z, the sports car’s design has just as much of an impact on its performance as what sits under the hood.
When talking about the design of the sports car, it makes the most sense to start from the ground up. The 2017 370Z boasts 19-inch forged alloy wheels by RAYS, and high performance Bridgestone Potenza tires. Moving on up, the sports car from Nissan offers plenty of exterior features that benefit both the aesthetic appeal of the 370Z, as well as functionality for the driver. High Intensity Discharge bi-functional xenon headlights come standard, along with LED daytime running lamps and taillights. A one-touch hatch release makes getting in and out of the trunk a breeze, while body-color dual power heated outside mirrors are sleek finishing touches to the car’s exterior design.
The overall body of the Nissan 370Z was designed with performance in mind. NISMO variants feature a NISMO aerodynamic body design complete with a unique front and rear fascia, a rear spoiler, and spoiler side sills. Aluminum doors, hood, and hatch ensure that the car remains lightweight enough to jog to sixty miles per hour in mere seconds.
The 2017 370Z was tailored for the track, as much as it was for the driver. Its low profile and extra wide stance allow for the best on-track performance, even around tight bends in the road. Flared wheels add to the performance aspect of this car’s design, while Z fender emblems deliver a bold message to other drivers on the road. The traditional coupe is a great option, and the more affordable one at that. For drivers who crave a bit more adventure from behind the wheel, the 370Z Roadster model is a thrilling example of intuitive design and track worthiness.
Due to its sports car classification, it should come as no surprise that the 2017 370Z offers something quite special right under the hood. The heart and soul of any sports car is its engine and transmission, and Nissan’s iconic sports car is no exception.
There is nothing standard about the base 3.7-liter V6 aluminum alloy engine on the 2017 370Z. Boasting an impressive 332 horsepower rating and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, even the entry-level sports car from Nissan packs plenty of punch. Featuring continuously variable valve timing control system with variable valve event and lift on intake valve, Nissan engineers spared no expense when it came to perfecting the performance of the 370Z. A powerful drivetrain is paired to this performance-ready engine, and features rear-wheel drive, a carbon fiber composite driveshaft, and a six-speed close ratio manual transmission. Drivers who aren’t quite comfortable with the old-school transmission can opt for the responsive seven-speed automatic trans with manual shift mode, paddle shifters, and downshift rev matching. This powerful engine and drivetrain combination comes standard on the entry-level 370Z Coupe as well as the Sport, Sport Tech, and Touring trim levels.
Drivers who are interested in even more power from behind the wheel, the 370Z NISMO and NISMO Tech models comes with a 3.7-liter V6 engine capable of producing a whopping 350 horsepower and 276 lb.-ft. of torque. The twin intake system delivers maximum capability even at maximum speeds, and a specially designed NISMO-tuned dual exhaust system features an H-pipe configuration that adds to this model’s gusto. These more powerful trim options of the 2017 370Z also come with the standard six-speed manual trans, while the seven-speed automatic remains an option. Another major perk of upgrading to the NISMO version of the 370Z, is the specially tuned suspension with increased stabilizer rates, dampening, and spring. NISMO front and rear performance chassis dampers are also included, along with NISMO reinforced three-point front strut tower brace. For true sports car enthusiasts, there is no better choice than the 2017 370Z NISMO or NISMO Tech.
All that get-up-and-go is great, but just as important as going, is stopping. Nissan engineers designed the 2017 370Z with highly responsive sport brakes that were crafted for response and stopping power. Electronic brake force distribution and standard brake assist technology serve to better the sports car’s ability to stop in an instant, as well as high rigidity brake hoses and R35 Special II brake fluid. Whether you need to stop in a split second’s time, or have more room to come to standstill – this performance-ready car can do both.
As fun as it is to take the Nissan 370Z out on the track, there is something to be said about the car’s ability to make an impression from the inside, out. Featuring seating for two, the driver and his lucky companion will immediately feel a sense of excitement as they slink into their seats, ready for their upcoming adventure.
The interior of the latest 370Z model is loaded with comfort and convenience features that come standard. Most impressive, perhaps, is a standard 7.0-inch VGA touch screen display with voice recognition and Nissan’s Hard Drive Navigation system. A backup camera is also standard, along with automatic temperature control with an in-cabin microfilter, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, and more. The 370Z certainly nails the comfort and convenience category right on the head.
As fun as most of the features inside the Nissan 370Z are, there are also plenty of standard amenities that make driving the sports car just as practical as it is fun. Two 12-volt DC power outlets ensure you stay powered up while out on the open road, while steering-wheel mounted controls allow you to keep your eyes on the road at all times. The interior of the 370Z is appointed in rich leather, including the shift knob, steering wheel, and door panels. An eight-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and heat will keep you comfortable regardless of the weather outside. Aluminum trimmed brake and gas pedals are a sleek and nice addition to the 370Z’s interior cabin design, which lends itself perfectly to the sports car’s heart and soul.
