- Not many changes for 2016
- High-performance NISMO model available
The 2016 Nissan 370Z is a versatile two-seat sports car offered with a roof or without that offers driving fun and plenty of creature comforts as well.
Exterior styling for the 370Z remains distinctive; it is easily recognizable from near or far with its unique headlight clusters and bulging fenders. The convertible comes with a power operated soft-top that can open/close in about 20 seconds. 18-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, and xenon HID headlights come standard, with larger 19-inch alloys optional. The NISMO comes with a unique rear spoiler and its own front/rear fascias, along with red striping.
Under the hood, the 370Z features a 332-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 that is mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. NISMO models use the same V-6 but add a high-flow exhaust system and other engine upgrades which provide 18 more horsepower over the standard versions. NISMO models also get better brakes, a more rigid chassis, and a stiffer suspension for improved performance.
The 370Z is offered in Base, Sport, and Touring trims across both body styles. The convertible is also offered in a unique Touring Sport trim, while the NISMO is only available as a coupe.
Inside, the 370Z comes with a driver oriented cockpit that adds a new option for 2016, a Bose sound system that has active noise cancellation and also pumps in more engine noise to the cabin, a la BMW. Standard features include cloth bucket seats, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, push button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Also available are leather upholstery, navigation, sporty touches like aluminum pedals, and heated seats. NISMO models get Recaro sport seats and an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel.
Standard safety features include side-impact and front airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system. Coupe models also get side curtain airbags.
