Nissan 370Z Coupe and NISMO 370Z Sports

370Z Coupe and NISMO 370Z


  • Beautifully balanced handling and braking
  • Strong V6 engine
  • Synchronized downshift rev-matching manual gearbox
  • Screaming deal for an all-business sports car
  • Dangerous rear blind spots
  • Lots of road noise inside the cabin
Ruling: The Nissan 370Z is an excellent example of a price-performance leader. With a base price of $31k, few cars can step up to the performance and handling prowess of the 370Z in this price range.

The 2011 Nissan 370Z coupe has a style, performance, and value that few can come close to matching. Powertrain of the 2011 370Z uses a 3.7-liter engine with VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) is rated at 332 horsepower @ 7,000 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque @ 5,200 rpm. Two transmissions choices are offered: a close-ratio 6-speed manual with synchronized downshift rev-matching or a 7-speed automatic with Downshift Rev Matching (DRM) and Adaptive Shift Control (ASC).

Fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for both the 7-speed automatic and 6-speed manual gearboxes.

In addition to the 2011 Nissan 370Z Coupe, an open-air 370Z Roadster and 350-horsepower NISMO 370Z are also available.

The performance-oriented NISMO boasts a 350-hp 3.7-liter V6, mated to a six-speed manual transmission with SyncroRev Match, providing smooth and seamless transitions from gear to gear.
