2015 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt, drivers may find the Nissan 370Z a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan 370Z, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Volt will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan 370Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan 370Z have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Volt is much slimmer than the Nissan 370Z, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Volt, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan 370Z do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Volt is significantly less powerful than the Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Volt offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Volt comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan 370Z.
