2016 Nissan 370z Review
Even in an era of frugal driving, great fuel economy, and challenging our reliance on fossil fuels, many people still love their sports cars. There’s something about the feeling of a sleek vehicle roaring down the highway, its aerodynamic shape cutting through the wind—it’s nothing short of freedom incarnate.
The latest entry by Nissan is the 370Z, and it delivers at a price that won’t break your bank. Montgomeryville Nissan is proud to present a complete review of the 2016 Nissan 370Z for our Lansdale, Philadelphia, and Doylestown customers.
2016 Nissan 370Z
The 2016 Nissan 370Z is the newest entry in the Z line of convertibles and coupes from Nissan. They feature sharp lines, rear-wheel drive, and stock six-cylinder engines. This particular vehicle hasn’t undergone a redesign in quite some time, but it really doesn’t need one to keep up with other sport coupes on the road.
Trim and Technology
The 370Z comes in a whopping six different trim levels: base, Touring, Sport, Sport Tech, NISMO, and NISMO Tech. The base comes with automatic headlights, LED running lights, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system with CD player and auxiliary jack. The Roadster comes with a power soft top.
The Sport level comes with limited-slip differential, heated mirrors, and an upgraded Bose sound system with eight speakers, active noise control, and sound enhancer.
The Touring level doesn’t get the Sport level features but delivers heated seats, four-way power driver and passenger seat adjustment, auto-dim mirrors, a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation, a rearview camera, voice controls, USB integration, and a satellite tuner. The Sport Tech level combines the Sport and Touring level features.
The NISMO features an upgraded engine and sport-tuned transmission, while NISMO Tech adds all of the above tech features to the NISMO design.
Nissan 370Z Performance and Safety
The 370Z comes with a 3.7-liter V6 that puts out 332 horsepower from a six-speed manual transmission. It goes from zero to 60 in just over five seconds and gets an EPA-estimated economy of 21 combined mpg.
Safety features are standard with anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and side airbags. Coupes get side curtain airbags and roadsters get overhead airbags. The Touring, Sport Tech, and NISMO Tech levels get a rearview camera.
Comfort and Ride
For an entry-level sports coupe, it’s amazing just how high end the cabin is in the 370Z. Comfortable, contoured seats and a large, easy-to-view instrument cluster are welcome features.
Handling is agile and athletic, and the ride is smooth enough to make even a long trip very comfortable, even in the close cabin one expects from a sports coupe.
The steering and handling are super responsive, and there’s almost no bumping, jarring, or swaying with the car staying stable even on the tightest corners at high speeds. An optional noise cancellation system can provide a quiet ride as well.
