The Nissan 370Z is fairly new to the Japanese automaker’s lineup, coming to market in late 2008. Offered in many iterations since, the 370Z poises itself in the affordable sports car market, offering drivers a sport-like driving experience, impressive amenities, all at a fair price. Currently in its sixth-generation, the 370Z has received a lot of updates since it first rolled off the assembly line in 2008.
The 2016 Nissan 370Z is the affordable sports car. Not only does the 370Z perform well, it also offers a unique exterior styling that gives it a sleek, luxury look. The 2016 Nissan 370Z features a 3-layered interior design that maximizes every inch of space, and the most advanced technologies for the ultimate driving experience.
For those drivers who are serious about a high performance sports car and advanced in-vehicle technology, can opt for the 370Z Nismo Tech model, brand new for 2016.
The 2016 370Z is an inspired car to begin with. Once drivers are able to sit behind-the-wheel, they are able to experience for themselves the power, precision, and luxury that the 2016 Nissan 370Z offers.
Starting at just $29,990, the 2016 Nissan 370Z is more affordable than ever before. With the exception of the Nismo and Nismo Tech models, the 2016 370Z models all come equipped with a powerful 3.7-liter V6 that boasts up to 332 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque.
These same models also come standard with a sporty six-speed manual gearbox, but drivers can opt for a seven-speed automatic transmission if it is preferred. The base model has great features that include luxury amenities.
Each trim on the 370Z goes up from there, in both price and standard features. The most expensive model for 2016 is the Nismo Tech, which starts at $45,490. Drivers have four other options to choose, aside from the base and the top-of-the-line models. The 2015 Nissan 370Z truly offers an affordable option to drivers who want a high-performance sports car, without paying a premium price.
Dubbed a “driver obsessed cockpit” by Nissan, the 370Z truly impresses with its large suite of standard features, and unique interior three-layer design philosophy. Check out each layer below, and why it is imperative to providing drivers and passengers with a high quality, comfortable experience.
As it’s name suggests, this layer helps to hold drivers and passengers in place during the most spirited driving sessions. The high quality upholstery features a non-slip surface material, helping to ensure you stay right where you need to be. Each side of the center console also features integrated knee pads, for when sports racing leaves you slightly jostled. With adjustable lumbar support and heated seats standard on some of the trim levels, drivers and front seat passengers will feel endlessly comfortable, for even the longest road trip.
Within the interior of the 370Z, drivers have easy access to everything they need for successful operation of the sports car. Featuring specially shaped center console controls, and a low center armrest cover for shifting ease, Nissan engineers thought of everything when they designed this cockpit. The steering wheel rim also features a unique “kidney shaped” steering wheel rim that helps drivers stay connected to their 370Z, and connected to the road.
Just as important at the first two, this third interior layer design features a smart display that allows drivers to see everything with a simple glance. The minimization of the windshield pillar works to improve outward vision. The oval shaped steering wheel features large gauges that adjust with the steering column, making them easier to see.
On top of this unique design element, each trim level offers a long list of standard interior features that include entertainment options, an enhanced comfort experience, and convenient amenities that work together to make your driving experience the very best it can be.
While some drivers of the Nissan 370Z may not be interested in high-performance sports car specs, other drivers are very interested in a fully capable sports car. The newest trim level for the 2016 370Z is the Nismo Tech. Building upon the Nismo trim level, this tech version offers more features than ever before.
Starting at $45,490, the Nismo Tech is still priced well for all that it includes. Check it out below:
