The line-up

When it comes to investigating the types of Nissan 370z for sale, there are only two questions you’ll need to answer. “Would you like coupe or convertible? Automatic or manual?” Yes, that’s right, it’s pretty simple. And, let’s face it; with a car like the Nissan 370z, you don’t need many choices.

Exterior and style

Top on or top off, this is one stunning car. Sleek lines, perky rear and enormous 19” rims definitely make the 370z one of the automotive beauties of our time. Slightly tweaked from the last release, it appears wider and more dangerous than the old model.

Interior and comfort

Car interior or indulgent cockpit – we’re not quite sure yet. Bluetooth hands-free, Bose audio and heated leather seats outfit the interior of the Nissan 370z nicely. Critics have said that the navigated system seems a little out of date, though it is the same model that the Z was initially released with.

Under the bonnet

Now for the good stuff. Picture a 3.7L six-cylinder V6 engine that purrs to life with the touch of a button (literally, the 370z has a stop/start engine). Capable of 245kW/363Nm, it attacks the road like a tiger that hasn’t eaten in weeks.

Safety

When you have as much power as the 370z has, you want to make sure you have the safety features to back it up. Luckily, Nissan has taken this into consideration, and fitted the 370z with dual airbags, traction and electronic stability control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Electronic Throttle Control.

On the road

With a stiff ride and a whole lot of power, the Nissan 370z is definitely more at home on the racetrack than on the daily commute. Described as a little bumpy and noisy inside the cabin, the 370z can take a little getting used to.

It also features SynchroRev Match, which for traditional manual drivers can be a bit tricky until you get used to it.

Value for money

And what if you’re looking for a Nissan 370z for sale? One of the cheapest cars in its category, the Nissan 370z price is definitely as practical as the car is fun. Prices start at $69,500, and travel up to around $79,500 plus options and on road costs, which is more than a reasonable for a car of this calibre.

The competition

The Audi TT and Mercedes-Benz SLK class are both in the ring with the 370z. The Nissan is definitely the cheapest of the lot, with the Audi

starting at $68,950, and going up to $90,324, and the Mercedes starting at $83,450 and going all the way up to $150,050.

The biggest difference for these three cars is that the Audi and Mercedes are more of a luxury sports vehicle, and are able to be driven on a daily basis, while the Nissan is more of a raw, high-performance driving experience. The Mercedes-Benz has more gadgets, and the Audi is more blue blood, but the Nissan does hold a certain animal appeal.

Nissan 370z: $69,500- $76,500

Audi TT: $68,950 – $90,324

Mercedes-Benz SLK Class: $83,450-$150050

The verdict

If you’re looking for a raw track car, then this 2013 Nissan 370z review is completely in your favour. Sporty, performance-driven and headily powerful, the 370z is definitely a fun car to drive.
