A Review of the 2017 Nissan 370Z Coupe
The Nissan 370Z coupe was released back in 2009 as a replacement for the ageing Nissan 350Z at the Los Angeles Motor Show. A lot of things have changed globally in the sports segment over the intervening years. However, Nissan is still sticking to their core concept of providing an accessible sports car. The new 2017 model adds some updates to the specification, let’s take a closer look at what’s on offer.

The Place in the Sports Car Range:
Nissan has a long and renowned history of providing excellent performance cars. The 2017 Nissan 370Z Coupe is the gateway drug that provides a glimpse into this world. The 370Z starts from $56,930, next up is the GT-R range starting at $189,000, and finally, we have the GT-R Nismo range starting from $299,000. All prices exclude on road costs and show where the Nissan 370Z coupe fits into Nissan’s plans.
The 370Z Coupe Specifications:
The entry level model features a host of equipment as standard, such as: keyless entry, push button start, Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED tail-lights, cruise control, electric folding wing mirrors, aluminium sports pedals, a limited slip rear differential, red front and rear piston brake calipers, 19” alloy RAY wheels and a rear view camera. The driving seat has manual height adjustment and lumbar adjustment. The front seats are two stage heated, four-way power adjustable, and covered in cloth and leather.
The Engine and Performance:
The power plant is a naturally aspirated 3.7 litre V6 that generated 245kW of power at 7,000 rpm and 363 Nm torque at 5,200 rpm. This translates into a 0-100km/hr in just over 5 seconds. There is bags of torque down at around 2,000 rpm for accelerating around the city, and you will barely need to break 3,000 rpm unless you hit the open road. The performance is helped by a kerb weight of just 1,478kg, but you should still expect to get through 10.4L of 95 octane unleaded premium fuel for every 100km travelled combined. Those that enjoy customisation can have hours of fun playing with suspension settings, exhaust settings and a selection of driving modes. The transmission is a smooth seven-speed automatic unit operated with paddle shifters mounted on the steering column.
