Although the 2020 Nissan 370Z is mostly an afterthought to modern car enthusiasts, this rear-drive coupe still offers some thrills. Nissan 370z – A Modern Car
- Base: $30,985
- Sport: $34,715
- Sport Touring: $40,385
- NISMO: $46,685
Its most notable standard features include a limited-slip rear differential, upgraded brakes, 19-inch wheels, and aerodynamic add-ons.
Engine and Performance
Every 2020 370Z powers the rear wheels via a 332-hp naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V-6 that hooks up to a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed automatic. The engine responds quickly to throttle inputs and makes sporty noises at higher revs.
While the top-spec NISMO model is the most track-focused Z, it still can’t match most rival sports cars’ precision. Instead, the 370Z is easy to drive enthusiastically and comfy enough to use daily.
According to the non-compulsory automatic transmission, the 2020 370Z gives up to 19 mpg in the city with the EPA.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The 2020 370Z interior design hasn’t been updated in nearly a decade, but at least space is well put together, and the controls are logically arranged.
Interior cubby storage is mostly mediocre, and we managed to fit three carry-on bags behind the front seat, which is one less than the Supra held.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Believe it or not, the base 370Z comes with a basic AM/FM radio with a low-tech red-on-black dot-matrix display. Still, a CD player, USB port, and an auxiliary input jack are standard. A 7.0-inch touchscreen is optional but requires moving up to the nearly loaded Sport Touring model to get it.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The 2020 Nissan 370Z hasn’t been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Value for money
- Tire rumble
- Engine unrefined
- Very thirsty
The Nissan 370Z is such an honest, old-world kind of sports car that it’s almost impossible for us, as enthusiasts, not to be drawn to its many charms. It is so obviously geared towards entertaining its driver that it’s easy to overlook its one or two flaws.
The Zed also offers excellent value for money, serving up a pure, straightforward blend of good looks, muscular performance, excellent build quality, and generous equipment for a relatively modest amount of money.
